Follow our guides on our totally green electric vehicles and discover with them the most beautiful squares and the most important monuments of the Eternal City while enjoying the city and avoiding fatigue. Itinerary: Piazza dei Santi ApostoliThe square takes its name from the Church of the Saints Apostles that stands here, flanked by the Della Rovere Palace, also known as the Palace of the Saints Apostles. Piazza VeneziaIt is a famous square located at the foot of the Capitol, where five of the capital's most important streets intersect. The square is dominated by the Altare Della Patria, one of Italy's patriotic symbols; three monumental palaces surround it on the other sides: the oldest is the 15th-century Palazzo Venezia, which gives its name to the square and is home to the national museum; the other palaces are the 17th-century Palazzo Bonaparte and the Palazzo Delle Assicurazioni Generali, built in the early 20th century. Largo di Torre ArgentinaLargo di Torre Argentina is a square. In its center is an archaeological area with the ruins of four Roman temples dating from the Republican era. Here were found the ruins of the Curia of Pompey, where the senators of Rome met, and famous for the assassination of Julius Caesar Campo De' FioriCampo de' Fiori is a famous square. Until the 15th century, the square didn’t exist; in its place was a flowery meadow, hence the name. According to one tradition, the square took its name from Flora, a woman loved by Pompey, who had built his theatre nearby. Executions took place in Campo de Fiori. In 1600 the philosopher and Dominican friar Giordano Bruno, accused of heresy, was burnt alive there. In 1889 a bronze statue was erected in the center of the square in memory of the philosopher Piazza NavonaPiazza Navona is a symbol of Roman Baroque, with architectural and sculptural elements by Gian Lorenzo Bernini and Francesco Borromini. In ancient Rome, it was the Stadium of Domitian, which was built by Emperor Domitian in 85. The name of the square was originally 'in Agone' (from the Latin in agony, 'games') because the stadium was used exclusively for athletic competitions. In the square stands the church of Sant'Agnese in Agone, which commemorates the martyrdom of the Saint that occurred in that part of the square. PantheonThe Pantheon was built as a temple dedicated to all the divinities of the past, present, and future. It was founded in 27 BC by Marcus Vipsanius Agrippa. It was rebuilt by Emperor Hadrian after fires had damaged it. In the early 7th century, the Pantheon was converted into a Christian basilica called Santa Maria Della Rotonda or Santa Maria ad Martyres. It was the first case of a pagan temple being transposed to Christian devotion. Almost two millennia after its construction, the dome is still one of the largest domes in the world, and specifically the largest built in Roman concrete. Piazza di PietraLocated in the historical center, the square is dominated by the colonnade of the Temple of Hadrian, erected by Emperor Antoninus Pius in honor of his adoptive father Hadrian: this colonnade was incorporated in the late 17th century into the new building of the Customs House of Land Goods by architect Carlo Fontana. The name of the square is of popular attribution, most probably due to the imposing stones of the colonnade Piazza ColonnaIt owes its name to the Column of Marcus Aurelius which has stood here since antiquity. It is surrounded by some of the most important historical palaces in Rome, including Palazzo Chigi, the seat of the Presidency of the Council of Ministers. Trevi FountainThe fountain is the largest of Rome's famous fountains. It was built between 1732 and 1762 and became world famous after Fellini's film La Dolce Vita.

A really fantastic introduction to Rome. Thorough, comprehensive: we saw the ‘big ticket’ items like trevi fountain, spanish steps, pantheon, borghese gardens etc and also a number of smaller, lesser known sights. Our guide, Chiara, was incredible. Friendly, engaging, very knowledgeable.

Wonderful idea. It was great to search places in the centre of Rome with my family. Very very nice for kids. And for elders as well. The staff was very much warm and helpful.

Guiseppe Cusano was an excellent Guide. His background in Archaeology and his passion made it a unique, informative and exhilarating Tour. Well done.

It helped us visit many famous places, we didn’t know about. It took for us 3 hours to complete it. At the end we got a surprise.

comprehensive information during trip , good intro to Rome
