Full description
Follow your guide as you explore Rome and learn about the dark secrets buried beneath the city's ancient ruins and churches. Your ghoulish sightseeing tour begins at Castel Sant'Angelo. Initially commissioned as a mausoleum for Emperor Hadrian, this impressive structure later served as a prison. From here, your tour takes you along Via del Governo Vecchio to Piazza Pasquino. See the battered Hellenistic-style statue believed to date back as far as the third century BC before heading to your next stop, Piazza Navona. Visit one of the most animated squares in Rome, built on the site of the Stadium of Domitian. See the Pantheon, a masterpiece of Roman engineering and one of the best-preserved temples of ancient Rome. Continue to explore the most picturesque part of Rome as you head to the nearby Piazza della Minerva. Admire the Elephant and Obelisk at the center of the Piazza. This statue was designed by Italian artist Gian Lorenzo Bernini and unveiled in 1667. Next, visit Largo di Torre Argentina. See what remains of the Theatre and Curia of Pompey and hear the powerful story of power struggles and treachery as you learn about the site where Julius Caesar was assassinated in 44 BC. Your sightseeing tour comes to a close at Piazza Mattei, a beautiful little square that takes its name from the palace of Giacomo Mattei that overlooks it.

Unser Guide Philipp hat uns auf eine spannende Tour zu den wichtigsten Sehenswürdigkeiten und Orten mitgenommen. Das alles hat er hervorragend mit alten Sagen und Geschichten aber auch vielen historischen Fakten und Tipps für unseren Aufenthalt abgerundet. Es ist immer toll, wenn man einen erfahrenen und vor allem passionierten Guide zur Seite hat. In diesem Fall war das aber besonders zu spüren und hat die gesamte Tour zum Erlebnis werden lassen! Wir haben die Stadt wirklich auf eine ganz andere, intensivere und viel schönere Art entdecken dürfen. Vielen Dank für die schöne Zeit und dieses wirklich unvergessliche Erlebnis!

Benjamin, la nostra guida, si è dimostrato molto puntuale, gentile ed empatico. Ci ha raccontato tanti aneddoti e curiosità, facendoci scoprire tanti lati di Roma che ignoravamo. Attività consigliatissima, un bel modo per trascorrere un'ora e mezzo passeggiando nel centro di Roma e nello steso tempo imparando cose
