If you wish to enjoy the magic of this city in the moonlight, then this panoramic mix of bus and walking tour is perfect for you.
Everyone knows about the iconic Fontana di Trevi. It has even been used as a film setting for “La Dolce Vita” by Federico Fellini, where the main characters share an iconic romantic moment. This is also the place where the tour begins!
Learn about the history of the Fountain by your expert guide, and maybe throw a coin inside so that you will return in Rome, as the myth says. Your trip takes you to Piazza della Rotonda to appreciate the magnificent Pantheon, which is the best-preserved Roman temple, and learn about the thousand-year-old history of this landmark. This was also used as a setting in the movie Ocean Twelve with Brad Pitt and Catherine Zeta-Jones. Next stop is Piazza Navona, a square much loved by the Romans, where you can admire the Fountain of the Four Rivers made by Bernini.
Its then time to hop on board the motor coach to relax on a panoramic tour through the magic of the majestic monuments, illuminated by night. Listen to your guide as he talks about Castel Sant’Angelo, which was first built as a mausoleum for the emperor Hadrian, but later used for a safe haven for the Popes, thanks to the passageway that connects it straight to the Vatican. For all you opera lovers, you’ll be interested to know that this is where the “Tosca” by Puccini meets its tragic end.
After that, the tour takes you to St. Peter’s Square, Tiberina Island and the Mouth of Truth, which was also used as a setting for the famous “Roman Holiday” movie with Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck. You will reach Circus Maximus and the Platine Hill before its time to finish this tour at the most famous Roman symbol: the Colosseum! Take lots of pictures of the place used for Ridley Scott’s “The Gladiator” and say Buona Notte!
