Discover the streets and iconic piazzas of Rome with an immersive audio tour, downloadable on your phone. 

First, you’ll make a stop at the Altar of the Fatherland to pay your respects to Italy’s unknown soldier and from there you’ll set out on a magical stroll. Surely, there’s no way to leave Rome without a visit to the iconic Fontana di Trevi! This pearl of the Roman Baroque era is full of water and cinematic memories. Simply, toss a coin and immerse yourself in the Italian Dolce Vita!

As you continue your walk, you’ll discover the Pantheon of Rome, a stunning feat of ancient engineering. Here, you’ll follow your audio guide inside the enormous temple to learn about its bizarre legends before you head to the Church of St. Louis. This is where a surprise is waiting for you! Three Caravaggio masterpieces will cast their spell on you if you just drop some change to light them up! Weaving through a charming medley of Baroque art, stunning fountains, gelatos, and bustling city life, your tour, eventually, culminates in Piazza Navona. What’s more to ask for?

* * Please keep in mind that ticket/entrance fee to the sites and attractions are not included.

Fantastic Beasts

The statues might be the focal point of the fountain, but there are several more details that make the composition so powerful and dynamic. There are, for example, seven different animals portrayed around the fountain, close to the statues of the rivers, lurking under the rocks. This was a very inventive innovation which allowed Bernini to evoke a remarkable level of theatricality, so typical of the Baroque Era. Close to the river Danube, we see a horse while a creature that looks like a crocodile or an armadillo is lurking next to the Rio de la Plata. A lion appears next to the Nile and a dragon seems to have coiled its body around the paddle of the river Ganges. A snake, a sea snake, and a dolphin are also present in the grandiose composition. Yet, we must never forget that this was a work commissioned by the Pope, whose holiness and dominion is praised with the dove, symbol of the Holy Spirit, flying atop the obelisk.
