Learn the secrets that the fountain holds. Visit the Spanish Steps, and take in the magnificent views of Rome from the top of the steps. At the base of the steps you’ll find Via Condotti, the 5th Avenue of Rome, where all the world's top designers have set up shop.

Irene Amedeo is amazing! The tour was very interesting. The wine at the end of the tour was also a good time. The paintings are something else if you are into realism this totally for you. I have found a new respect for Caravaggio. Some things were in restoration but we got to see the important parts.

Our guide Amelia was awesome and it was really interesting to hear about Rome’s history from her. I enjoyed the tour and am really happy that I have learnt so much about this amazing city

Interesting
