Description

Rome at night will enchant you with its beautiful lights and your guide will create an unforgettable experience by taking you to wonderful places, whilst introducing the history and mythology of all the places that are known as the "Squares of La Dolce Vita".

The tour will start with the majestic Piazza della Repubblica, which is known for the fountain in the center of the square – the Fountain of the Naiads – which was commissioned by Pope Pius IX in 1870 and completed in 1888. Naiads are a specific type of Nymph and the fountain represents the nymphs of the lakes, rivers, oceans and underground waters, whilst the “Glauco” is supposed to symbolize the domination of man kind over nature.

Next you will be driven to the San Carlo alle Quattro fontane, which is a beautiful church designed by Borromini, which was his first independent commission work. The Baroque architecture will be illuminated by lights, which will make this lovely piece of architecture even more special.

Your next stop will be the Piazza Barberini, which is located in the north-east of Rome, close to the previous location . Located on the Quirinal Hill, this large piazza was originally designed in the 16th Century and named after the Barberini Palace. At the centre of the piazza, your guide will show you the magnificent Tritone Fountain, another masterpiece sculptured by Bernini in 1642-3. You will then carry on up to the north side of Rome city centre, where you will reach the Piazza di Spagna. Your guide will tell you all about this aristocratic square, that once was the meeting point of all artists of 18th century.

In the middle of Spanish Steps (Piazza di Spagna), there is the famous Barcaccia Fountain. Designed by Bernini's father but, later studies however, discovered that, Bernini himself might have helped his father to finish off this lovely eye catching piece. The fountain's shape is suuposed to portray a half-sunken ship. Pope Urban VIII commissioned this piece and works were terminated in 1627. The shape was chosen prior to the river walls being built. The Tiber River often flooded and in 1598 there was a particularly bad flooding, in which the Piazza di Spagna was covered with waters up to a metre high. Once the water withdrew, a boat was found in the spot were the fountain is situated now and, Pope Urban VIII employed Pietro Bernini and his son, to create a fountain sculpture in memory of that event.

Going back down to the south of the city centre with your golf cart, your guide will surprise you with the most famous fountain in the world, Trevi Foutain. Designed by the Italian architect Nicola Salvi and later completed by Pietro Bacci. Pope Urban VIII originally asked Bernini to sketch up a dramatic unique fountain that was to replace the insufficient one already in place. The project was never carried out as the Pope passed away and Bernini's project was abandoned. Your guide will follow up by telling you the history behind this magnificent fountain and when, how and why the Trevi Fountain exists today as it is. Before leaving the Trevi, do not forget to throw a coin while making a wish, as the legend says, you must to do so before leaving the fountain.

And of course our tour will not leave out the wonderful Piazza della Rotonda. Just a two-minute drive across the street. This piazza is dominated by one of the most unique and well preserved temples of the ancient Roman period, the Pantheon, which dominates the square with its eye-catching colossal columns. Your personal guide will recount the history and changes of this ancient temple and the piazza itself.

Whilst on the tour, you can now just look over your shoulder and you will be able to see the famous fountain with a centered obelisk originally from Egypt. Constructed by the architect Giacomo Della Porta under the demands of Pope Gregorio XIII in 1575, the obelisk was added in early 18th century by Pope Clement XI.

Keeping the best for last you will then reach Piazza Navona, today know as the Piazza della Dolce Vita. Be amazed by the center piece, know as the Four River Fountain. Its beauty will be increased by the lights while your guide will recount the history, arts and facts of the marvelous fountain ever built by Bernini.
