What you'll do

Nothing in the world can prepare you for your first glimpse of Rome during the golden hour, and that’s exactly when we begin our Journey the twilight - a perfect introduction to the spectacular landscape of the city’s historic centre. Learn how the genius of Bernini transformed an ancient racetrack into Rome’s most iconic public space at Piazza Navona & how his bitter rivalry with the great architect Borromini shaped the city we know today. Later we explore the spectacular sweeping descent of the Spanish Steps and drinking in the enchanting atmosphere of the bombastic Trevi fountain at its mesmerising beauty . Our journey will also take us into the amazingly preserved ancient temple of the Pantheon, a miracle of engineering that still boasts the largest unsupported dome ever built. I will show you how a small settlement on the banks of the Tiber river grew to become one of the greatest empires the world has ever known and learn about its equally spectacular decline and fall. Relive its resurrection as the centre of the Christian faith, and get to know the popes and princes who transformed the city into one of the wonders of the world with spectacular commissions of art and architecture.
