Hadrian had it built in 136 to access his mausoleum over the Tiber. Decoration of the Ponte Sant’Angelo with 10 statues was initially done in the 16th century under Pope Clement VII. One of the best sculptors, Gian Lorenzo Bernini, created the 10 angels that still grace the Ponte Sant’Angelo (Bridge of Angels) today.

Piazza Navona

The guided tour moves on to the Piazza Navona, one of the characteristic squares of Baroque Rome. Explore this jewel in the middle of the city, with Bernini’s famous Fountain of the Four Rivers triumphant in its centre. Con le sue fontane, colori, facciate ed artisti di strada, questa piazza offre innumerevoli occasioni di bellezza romana.

Trevi Fountain

The monumental Trevi Fountain is one of Rome’s visitor magnets. The Fontana di Trevi became world-famous after featuring in a scene in Fellini’s 1960 film “La Dolce Vita” when the leading actors Marcello Mastroianni and Anita Eckberg bathed in the fountain at night. According to a Roman tradition, you make a wish to return to Rome if you throw a coin into the fountain. A Incidentally, the fountain owes its name to the fact that three streets converged in ancient Rome: “tre vie” – meaning three streets – later became “Trevi”.
