Rome – Arrive in Rome for a Private Tour of the Piazzas and Fountains
Rome is a city of legend and history, elegance and charm that was once the center of the empire that expanded Western Civilization. Your flight will land at Rome Fiumicino Airport, where your private transfer will greet you upon your arrival. As you drive into the city, you will enjoy the citrus trees that grow on the outskirts of the city as the cypress trees frame the towering figure of the Colosseum. The Spanish Steps will glisten with prestige beneath the spires of Trinitá dei Monti Church, and you will pass it by for now as you take some time to settle into the comforts of your hotel in Rome’s historical city center.
Your guide will greet you in the lobby and lead you on a fabulous introductory tour of the Eternal City’s celebrated piazzas that embody the passing artistic eras that have spanned over the past two millennia. The grandeur of the city emanates from the 18th-century Baroque feature, the Trevi Fountain, which stands more than 85 feet tall and over 160 feet wide. The water trickles from beneath the crowning figure of Oceanus, positioned against the back of Palazzo Poli as visitors from around the world turn their backs on the fountain to toss coins over their shoulders and into the water, which legend dictates means that they will return to Rome again in the future. The elegant and grandiose figures create a sense of symmetry beneath the bas-reliefs that depict the Roman origins of the aqueduct feeding the fountain.
