The Spanish Steps
On your first stop of your Rome City Tour there will be Piazza di Spagna, location of the Spanish Steps.
Together we will admire the monumental stairway that leads to Trinita’ dei Monti Church, built in 1723-1725 by the architect Francesco de Sanctis.
You will learn how Piazza di Spagna became since the very beginning a popular place for artists and poets, who gathered there from all over the world, and how the tradition of the Spanish Steps as a meeting place has lived ever since.
Before leaving this site, enjoy a unique view on Via dei Condotti, famous for fashion boutiques and retailers.
The Trevi Fountain
Next, reach your second destination of your Rome City Tour, the charming Trevi Fountain, that has recently been restored thanks to the funds provided by the Italian fashion company Fendi.
Designed by the Italian architect Nicola Salvi and completed by Pietro Bracci, the Trevi Fountain is undoubtedly one of the most famous sites and attractions in Rome, which splendor was celebrated also by the movie industry, including Federico Fellini’s La Dolce Vita.
Marvel at this terrific masterpiece and learn the history and meaning of the Trevi Fountain.
Continue your private city tour of Rome heading to Navona Square, location of Bernini’s masterpiece, the Fountain of the Four Rivers.
Marvel at the details that adorn the fountain, while learning anecdotes and significant historical facts around its construction and Bernini’s life.
End your private tour visiting one of the most important sites in Rome, the Pantheon, first built as a temple to honor all Gods.
The Pantheon has always been surrounded by an aura of mystery and its exact age still remains unknown. Today, it’s a church that hosts the tombs of many famous characters, such as Raphael, Italian kings and poets.
Together we will unveil the secrets behind the most fascinating part of the Pantheon, its giant dome, with the famous hole in the top, called oculus.

We had 2 days of walking tours with Nicole. She was the best! She is so knowledgable and provided so much information for us. We have been to Rome several times and always chose a private walking tour. Nicole was one of the best tour guides we ever had. Thanks Nicole for making our trip the most memorable!

We just arrived home from our 12-day Italian vacation. Hands down, the highlight of our trip was the time we spent with Nicole. She was a fabulous tour guide! Truly, the best one (group or private) we had during our stay. On our first full day in Rome, she met us at our apartment and took us on a 3-hour tour of the Colosseum and Ancient Forum. On our last full day of vacation, we met Nicole again for a tour of the Vatican. Each and every time she took wonderful care of us!

Simply the best way to experience the Vatican in my opinion. Nicole provided a brilliant and fascinating private tour of the Vatican. She had a hard job as our children (9 & 11) were tired, it was hot and busy but she made it so interesting and really engaged with the children understanding completely how much they could take in. They keep talking about the interesting facts they discovered. We knew it would be hard to make such an historic and detailed site interesting but she managed it and the children and we really enjoyed it.

Nicole was such a fantastic guide! She is also an archaeologist by trade and as a result has a depth of knowledge which she shares in an easy to embrace manner. She also has access to places others do not. She is young, smart and bubbly. It is obvious she loves what she does and wants to share her perspective. Our two sons in their 20's were fully engaged and entertained by her. We all learned so much even though we weren't looking to.

My husband, daughter and I spent a great morning at the Vatican with Nicole. She is a delightful young woman...and also a trained archaeologist with incredible knowledge of Vatican artifacts and artwork. Her enthusiasm for both is contagious! Nicole helped us bypass all of that and we were in in no time! Throughout our tour, she also helped us negotiate our way around large tour groups that clog passageways.

We took a tour of Basilica San Clemente and the Priscilla Catacombs with Nicole and enjoyed it immensely. Not only was she very informative, pointing out all kinds of details we would have otherwise missed, but also very friendly. She spoke clearly and was always open to us interrupting and asking our own questions. When it came to the Priscilla Catacombs, Nicole knew all the staff personally and was able to show us the most important sights and tell stories to bring them to life.
