About Private Tour: Classical Rome Art History Walking T
Explore Rome's wealth of history and culture in style on a private walking tour with an art expert. Accompanied by your own private guide who specializes in art history, you'll enjoy personalized attention on your special private tour of classical Rome's cultural highlights.
Your private art tour starts in Piazza Navona, originally the stadium of Domitian, the venue for Greek-style games and athletics. It is now an elegant piazza surrounded by cafes and bars. In the center are beautiful fountains and the square is very atmospheric, especially at night.
From there we visit Palazzo Altemps, a delightful museum with a wonderful display of Roman sculptures. Nearby is the Pantheon, one of Rome's most stunning monuments and home to the tomb of Raphael. An intact Roman temple dating back to the time of Hadrian (about 120 A.D.), the Pantheon has a beautiful domed roof with a circular opening. If it rains during your visit you'll find it an unforgettable experience!
Leaving the Pantheon, the tour concludes at Largo Argentina, a busy square with the exposed remains of several Roman temples, including the site where Julius Caesar was assassinated in 44 B.C.
