Landmarks at Leisure

Rome Walking Tours Photo, Rome, Italy

This walk visits many of the city’s landmarks, leaving time for shopping and enjoying Rome’s largest park. Al Leoncino is an old-world pizzeria on Via del Leoncino, near the Via Condotti intersection.

* Marvel at Bernini’s aquatic masterpieces in Piazza Navona (1), then visit the Pantheon (2), built in the first century as a temple to "all the gods". Sant’ Ignazio di Loyola (3) has an amazing illusionary ceiling, but it’s the Trevi Fountain (4) that can guarantee your return with a single coin toss.

* Via Condotti (5) is Rome’s most exclusive shopping street and the Spanish Steps (6) its most popular meeting place. At the top of the steps walk through the old Roman Wall to the Villa Borghese gardens (7).

* Follow Via Sistina to Via Veneto and the spooky crypt in Santa Maria della Conceziona (8), where 4000 monks await. Walk down to the Quirinale (9) for more great views before returning home.
