Live La Dolce Vita (“the sweet life”) in Rome’s center as you explore stunning squares and streets alive with history. Learn to navigate Rome’s labyrinth of ancient streets, discover hidden corners only known to locals, and understand the intricacies of Roman culture.
Inspired by the 1960 film “La Dolce Vita“, this La Dolce Vita stroll gives you your own sweet taste of Roman life. As the sun sets on the city, wander through the most famous piazzas and picturesque spots in Rome— many of which are featured in the film — including the Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, Pantheon, and Piazza Navona.
As if appearing from thin air, the Trevi Fountain greets you with its gushing waters and illuminated statues. Marvel at the stunning Baroque architecture, take a moment to soak in its curves and edges in Rome’s unique evening atmosphere, and create your own lasting La Dolce Vita moment. Make sure to throw a coin into the fountain before you leave. Tradition has it that doing this will ensure your return to Rome one day.
As we stroll Rome’s winding medieval streets, you’ll encounter lots of stunning architecture. But nothing can prepare you for seeing the Pantheon for the first time. This majestic 2,000 year-old temple stands supreme at the head of the piazza – unweathered by time and a symbol of Roman might.
Just a few minutes away, encounter another ancient Roman monument whose fame is buried beneath the city. For beneath Piazza Navona lies the ancient Stadium of Domitian – a structure that has given the square its peculiar shape.
Your La Dolce Vita stroll finishes now, not far from the Tiber, in Rome’s historic center. As your grande finale, enjoy an optional aperitivo at a local bar and soak in the local atmosphere. Although this tour can be given at any time of day, we recommend taking it in the afternoon or evening when the streets and piazzas spring to life for an authentic taste of Roman life.
