An audio walking tour from the Spanish Steps to the Pantheon

by Simon Brooke

Title Details

Audio Original


Our guide to Rome takes about four to five hours, depending on how many breaks you take.  As you wander down the famous Spanish Steps we'll explain why the Pope at the time they were built was so unenthusiastic about them and also why the fountain in the Piazza di Spagna below looks like it's sinking.  We'll point out the Keats-Shelley Museum and explain what Roman firemen do to the Colonna dell'Immacolata every year.
  At the Trevi Fountain we’ll tell you the origin of the phrase paparazzi and, as we guide you through beautiful but often overlooked squares such as the Piazza Santi Apostoli, you'll hear about the two men who shaped the city - Borromini and Bernini  - and about their great rivalry.
  This Rome walking tour will explain why the Piazza Venezia is so named, show you want to look out for in the Piazza Colonna and, as we guide you through the narrow streets towards the Piazza Navona, we’ll talk about the history of Rome, while our unique, regularly updated pdf Printed Guide will tell you where to find quiet, hidden away restaurants, where the real Romans go to eat.
