A walk in art
Genießen Sie ein entspannter Spaziergang durch die Straßen und Gassen des Stadtzentrums zu den berühmtesten und symbolträchtigsten Denkmälern Roms.
The Castel Sant’Angelo and Ponte Sant’Angelo
Start the day with a guided tour through Castel Sant’Angelo and Ponte Sant’Angelo can be seen from the outside. The bridge is considered one of Rome’s most beautiful ancient bridges. Hadrian had it built in 136 to access his mausoleum over the Tiber. Decoration of the Ponte Sant’Angelo with 10 statues was initially done in the 16th century under Pope Clement VII. One of the best sculptors, Gian Lorenzo Bernini, created the 10 angels that still grace the Ponte Sant’Angelo (Bridge of Angels) today.
The guided tour moves on to the Piazza Navona, one of the characteristic squares of Baroque Rome. Explore this jewel in the middle of the city, with Bernini’s famous Fountain of the Four Rivers triumphant in its centre. With its fountains, colours, building façades and street artists, this square offers you countless examples of Roman beauty.
The monumental Trevi Fountain is one of Rome’s visitor magnets. According to a Roman tradition, you make a wish to return to Rome if you throw a coin into the fountain. Incidentally, the fountain owes its name to the fact that three streets converged in ancient Rome: “tre vie” – meaning three streets – later became “Trevi”. The Fontana di Trevi became world-famous after featuring in a scene in Fellini’s 1960 film “La Dolce Vita” when the leading actors Marcello Mastroianni and Anita Eckberg bathed in the fountain at night.
Piazza di Spagna and the Spanish Steps
The guided tour ends at the Spanish Steps. With their 138 steps, the Spanish Steps and their charming balustrades lead up to the Trinita dei Monti church. At the foot of these steps is the upmarket fashion mile, the Via Condotti, in which not just top Italian designers showcase their latest creations. A boat-shaped fountain is in the middle of the Piazza di Spagna. Pietro Bernini, father of the famous sculptor Gian Lorenzo Bernini, completed the Fontana della Barcaccia in 1629.
