Palazzo di Giustizia Rome

This walk begins at the Ponte Sant' Angelo. We recommend to walk along Via dei Coronari to the Piazza Navona. This is the Palazzo di Giustizia with the Ponte Umberto I and the Via Zanardelli in front of it.


Via dei Coronari Rome

Along the Via dei Coronari you will find many beautiful sights like this. There are also a number of cafes that invite for a rest.


Piazza Navona Roma

Piazza Navona is one of the (many) must-see places in Rome. The Piazza is a busy multi-cultural place with many cafes and restaurants which are clearly overpriced. We strongly recommend to pass these and visit the less expensive cafes and restaurants in the surrounding streets. The photo shows the Fontana del Nettuno (from 1878) at the Northern end of the Piazza.


Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi Roma

This is the Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi (Fountain of the Four Sources), located in the middle of Piazza Navona. It is said to be the masterpiece of -you guess it- Bernini. It depicts the four major rivers of the world - the Nile, Danube, Ganges, and the Rio de la Plata.


Fontana del Moro Roma

This is the third fountain at the Piazza Navona - the Fontana del Moro in front of the Palazzo Pamphilii. This fountain was created in 1654 by Giovanni Antonio Mari after a model of -yes!- Bernini.


Campo de Fiori Rome

The Campo de' Fiori, the only historical place in Rome without a church. In February 1600 the philosopher and visionaire Giordiano Bruno was burned here. He predicted the endlessness of the universe and refused to revoke when faced with the inquisition. The statue in the center of the Piazza is devoted to him today.


Area Sacra del Largo Torre Argentina Roma

This is the Area Sacra del Largo Torre Argentina, created around the 2nd century BC. The buildings were found in 1926 and restored as far as possible until 1930. Even if this historical place is surrounded by heavy traffic, you can easily walk around it site by foot.


Piazza della Rotonda Roma

Our walk ends at the Piazza della Rotonda right in front of the Pantheon. Here, two guys in costumes provide an idea how it might have been 2,000 years ago.


Pantheon Rome

This is the main entrance to the Pantheon. It was built in 27 BC and shows one more time the supremacy of the ancient architects, especially when you visit the interior (it's free!).
