Explore some of the less-frequented sites in Rome on foot, including some of its marvelous piazzas.
Set out with your guide from the elegant Piazza di Spagna, better known as the Spanish Steps. This beautiful and busy area is dominated by the 16th-century Trinità dei Church and the curious Barcaccia Fountain created by Bernini. According to the legend, during one of the Tiber's floods, a boat was transported here by the waters. The water coming out of this fountain is supposed to be the sweetest water in Rome.
Walk to the famous and beautiful Trevi Fountain, where King Neptune's Tritons guard the sparkling waters of Rome's most beloved monument. Be sure to toss a coin into the fountain to ensure your return to the Eternal City.
Cross the Via del Corso, one of the main streets of Rome, which was used by the Romans for horse races. At the Pantheon, see the tomb of Raphael and then to the square said to be the most beautiful in Rome -- Piazza Navona. Admire the Fountain of the Four Rivers -- a fountain sculpted by Bernini representing the four great rivers of the world. Return to the ship at Civitavecchia.
