The most famous among the Roman fountains is certainly the Trevi Fountain. The architecture of this fountain, inspired by Roman triumphal arches, marks the end of an aqueduct, built by Marcus Agrippa in 19 BC. In the following centuries the Popes who restored the ancient Roman aqueducts used to build fountains to commemorate their deeds of munificence. Piazza Navona is the symbol of Roman Baroque: in front of the magnificent Palazzo Pamphilij we can see Bernini’s Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi (fountain of the four rivers). The monumental fountain’s figures each represent one of the four principal rivers then known. Among the other squares of this itinerary we will see also the famous Spanish Steps and the Pantheon, one of the best preserved buildings of Roman Antiquity.
Julia, Thank you so much for the recent tours we took from you while on our Rome vacation. My family and I had a wonderful time on The Vatican and Roman Antiquity tours. You made learning and understanding about Rome’s history fun and exciting for our entire family. We were all impressed by you and your knowledge of Roman and Art History and it was so nice to have our own personal guide.
Julia, It has been a week since we’ve left Rome. What beautiful memories we have of your lovely city and your warm hospitality. You were wonderful and I shall never forget the time we spent with you. I will also pass your name on to all that may be able to spend time in Rome…Thank you Kathy Polikowsky
