Squares and Fountains Tour – Baroque Rome
The Squares and Fountains Tour begins in the splendid Piazza Navona, one of the most visited places in the city, located in the ancient stadium of Domitian, maintaining its elongated and primitive shape. In the center of the square is the most representative work; The Fountain of the Four Rivers, built by Bernini for the Holy Year of 1650 with which he earned the favors of Innocenzo X.
Heading towards the Pantheon, built by Agrippa and rebuilt by Hadrian, we will admire the largest dome in the world from where Michelangelo and Brunelleschi drew inspiration, with a classic 8-column facade in gray granite “antis” and Corinthian capitals, and also the dome oldest in the world.
The Trevi Fountain, one of the most emblematic places in Rome, was built in 1735 by Nicola Salvi by order of Clement XII in Palazzo Poli and decorated with statues and motifs by a group of Baroque artists such as Pietro Bracci, a pupil of Bernini. Heading towards Piazza di Spagna, historically a place of concentration of artists, we will see at the foot of the staircase the Fontana della Barcaccia by Pietro Bernini and at the end the Embassy of Spain and the Column of the Immaculate Conception, where our tour ends.
