1st highlight: Piazza Navona
On the first day of travel we will dedicate ourselves to the most important historical sights of Rome. Our tour begins at Piazza Navona, a historical site of the Romans, where fairs, festivals and tournaments took place in ancient times. Here is the work of the great architect Bernini "The Fountain of the Four Rivers", as well as basilicas, Egyptian obelisks and lush houses in the Baroque style. The Basilica of Sant'Agnese in Agone has a special history. This is where the skull of the holy martyr Agnes is kept, who, according to legend, was killed in 304 AD.
2nd highlight: Pantheon
Then we walk along the ancient streets of Rome to the Temple of All Gods - the Pantheon. This monument originates from the heyday of architecture in ancient Rome and was completed between 125-128 AD. The Pantheon's dome is still the largest surviving concrete dome ever built.
3rd highlight: Trevi Fountain
Now we visit another highlight of the city, the Trevi Fountain, with a statue of the sea god Oceanus. We'll take a short break here to listen to the story of the fountain. Of course, you can also toss a coin in to enhance your personal happiness.
4th highlight: Piazza Venezia
Next we come to Piazza Venezia with the magnificent Vitariano Palace, which is a symbol of the unification of Italy. Here we can enjoy the magnificent panorama of the city from the viewing platform.
5th highlight: excursion to the Palatine Hill
After lunch, we will visit the oldest inhabited part of the city, the Palatine Hill. Already in the 10th century BC, there were settlements here that, according to legend, were the basis for the later founding of the city of Rome. In addition to the excavations of ancient palace structures and temples, we find various old fountains, ponds and several pavilions. Additionally, you can see a richly decorated grotto, as well as great rose gardens with orange trees and numerous pine trees.
In the evening you can explore the city on your own and take a stroll along the Christmas markets in the center.
