Rome stands as an eternal testament to perseverance and dedication and harbors a culture of artists, chefs, and architects. Lavish domes and spires decorate the city’s skyline, and the scent of roses emanates from the corner flower stands, fading beneath the decadent aroma of a confectionary on Via Urbana. Your private transfer greets you upon your arrival at Fiumicino Airport and escorts you into the heart of the opulent and historic city. Your 19th-century accommodation overlooks the stunning Spanish Steps and offers a remarkable vintage allure with contemporary amenities for unforgettable luxury. Your guide greets you in the hotel lobby eager to introduce to the fabulous streets of Rome at your preferred pace, basking in the Romance of the Eternal City.
The 17th-century Fontana della Barcaccia, located at the base of the Spanish Steps, trickles against the backdrop of couples sipping wine, teenagers sneaking kisses, and competing guitarists setting a serene mood. You walk along the cobblestone streets to Piazza Navona in time to watch the sunlight fade over the baroque palatial facades. Artists sit with their easels and watch the celebrated square throughout the day, capturing the glinting rosy hues and golden colors in the soft light. Your guide points to the gorgeous Fountain of the Four Rivers where allegorical figures display the power and grace of the Nile, Danube, Ganges, and Rio de la Plata, four major rivers representing the known continents in the mid-17th century.
