Best of Rome by Twilight

With the arrival of the Renaissance in Rome during the 1400‘s and the return of the Papal court, Rome is reborn. The ancient Roman aqueducts were to be rebuilt and celebrated with grand sculptural groups and mesmerising piazzas.

Join us as we explore Renaissance and Baroque Rome. From the great palaces, to the beautiful Baroque piazzas and fountains; rivalries of artists such as Bernini and Borromini,  lovestruck Popes, scandalous courtesans, and everything in between.

    Stop At: Piazza Barberini, Junction of Via del Tritone Via Veneto, Via Quattro Fontane, Via Barberini, Rome Italy

    We start our tour in the shadow of the Barberini palace beside Bernini's beautiful 'Triton fountain'. The palace was commissioned by Pope Urban VIII and worked on by great artists like Borromini and Bernini. These three characters will reoccur throughout the evening and shape our tour.

    Duration: 15 minutes

    Stop At: Spanish Steps, Piazza di Spagna, 00187 Rome Italy

    Arguably the most famous steps in the world. We approach from the top to avoid the climb up and to get those perfect early evening snaps, before descending down to the piazza below and the elder Bernini's wonderful 'sinking boat fountain'.

    Duration: 15 minutes

    Stop At: Trevi Fountain, Piazza di Trevi, 00187 Rome Italy

    After the most famous steps in the world, we should probably stop at the most famous fountain. The Trevi, how wowed and inspired visitors and filmmakers alike for centuries now. Marking the terminus of one of Rome's ancient aqueducts it is a true celebration of water.

    Don't forget to bring you coins to make sure you return to Rome.

    Duration: 15 minutes

    Stop At: Pantheon, Piazza della Rotonda, 00186 Rome Italy

    Built during the reign of Hadrian, the Pantheon remains one of the most evocative monuments in Rome. It is one of the architectural wonders of the ancient world and a must on any trip to Rome. But remember its doors are closed at night so make time to come back and visit the interior during the day.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Piazza Navona, 00186 Rome Italy

    Originally the stadium of Diocletian, it later becomes a Christian slum until eventually going through a Baroque gentrification under the guidance of Pope Innocent X, Bernini, and Borromini.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Piazza di Campo de' Fiori, 00186 Rome Italy

    It may be bustling market by day, but come nightfall and Campo comes alive in a different way. Bustling bars and trendy restaurants spill out into the square, but a dark figure looms large in the centre. The bronze statue of Giordano Bruno glares definitely down at us, marking the spot where in 1600 he was burnt alive at the stake.

    Duration: 15 minutes

    Stop At: Ponte Sisto, 00153 Rome Italy

    One of Rome's oldest bridges offers up spectacular views of the dome of St. Peter's Basilica but more importantly leads us to one of Rome's most beautiful neighborhoods, Trastevere.

    Duration: 5 minutes

    Pass By: Trastevere, 00153 Rome Italy

    This is not a tour of Trastevere! We end our tour here with a brief history of the neighborhood and a few good recommendations for food and drink. Because that is how every night should end in Rome, with good food and better wine.
