Lonely Planet Experiences: Rome Small-Group Highlights Tour

2. Lonely Planet Experiences: Rome Small-Group Highlights Tour

Experience the best travel stories for yourself! Join a local expert and uncover hidden gems on this Lonely Planet Experience. Your dolce vita adventure begins where the famous film was written by Italy’s greatest film director, Federico Fellini. Enjoy a stroll down the Via Margutta, a street famous for inspiring painters, sculptors, artisans, poets and musicians and learn about the artists that have lived here through the centuries. Ready for an injection of movie glamour yet? Pass by the home of Fellini where he lived with his actress wife Giulietta Masina and as you do you guide will talk a little of about his life and career. Staying with the Hollywood theme, then check out the house that stood in as Gregory Peck’s home in the iconic Audrey Hepburn movie Roman Holiday. Fun fact: this is the first Hollywood film to be entirely filmed on location in Rome. Nearby, stumble across the apartment where Pablo Picasso lived, over 100 years ago. An espresso stop at a local cafe that was once the private art studio of Antonio Canova , a well-known and respected sculpture artist of the 19th century, is up next. Admire the elaborate marble sculpture as you enjoy a true Roman Espresso (your guide will teach you how to order it, the Roman way) and listen to your guide talk about Italian coffee culture and the many local roasters that have sprung up around the city center. Your next stop is the Monumental Staircase. A total of 135 steps lead to the Trinita del Monti church that overlooks the Spanish Steps and the Barcaccia Fountain by Bernini. As you wind your way through the atmospheric Roman streets, heading towards the Trevi fountain, stumble across one of the tour operator's favourite wine bars, where you will stop to taste local wine from the foothills of Rome, accompanied by local salumi, cheese (including Pecorino Romano) and delicious focaccia bread. It couldn’t be a ‘dolce vita’ themed tour without a visit to the world-famous Trevi Fountain, which has become the stuff of legend since Anita Ekberg’s midnight frolic caused an international sensation in the 1960 movie that’s given our tour its title. Next up, pass through a shopping gallery dedicated to Roman legend and comedy actor, Alberto Sordi only to arrive at the Pantheon, one of the world’s greatest and best preserved Roman temples. In the 7th century AD it was transformed into a church and remains one of the most astonishing sights in Rome; guarenteed take your breath away. Don’t forget to admire the beautiful fountain outside too, crafted by Giacomo della Porta. Your taste of the Roman good life will end at the Piazza Navona, site of the spectacular Four Rivers fountain by Bernini. Before you go, don’t forget to ask your expert local guide for more tips on what else to see, do and eat during your stay in ravishing Rome.

Great Cultural Introduction to your Roman Holiday

This is much more than just Espresso and Gelato. You will learn how to order items in Italy, the cash desk and then get your items. Great introduction to the People of Rome and their culture. Since the tour I have gained confidence in getting a coffee (espresso) easily and quickly. Amazing to understand the difference between Gelato and Ice Cream, you have to taste to believe!

Our guide was fabulous. She went above expectation for the tour.

The grenita was amazing. The gelato (to die for). The espresso blew our minds (we went nack gor another one the next day) and the tiramisu was the piece de resistance. Thank you for a wonderful, informative & delicious 2 1/2 hours. Liz, Bruce & Blair

The best of Rome

Valeria was great, she took us through the best spots in Rome and talk about those things you only understand when someone who has been raised in Rome explains to you.
