This tour is for our clients who have already been to the Vatican and Colosseum and want to spend a peaceful day in downtown Rome, away from the busy tourist paths. It will be a relaxing walk along narrow streets and squares lined with monuments dating from the Ancient times, Medieval, and Renaissance periods, up to the Roman Baroque. You will learn about the continuous transformation of the Eternal City and how all are inextricably combined.
