Piazza Navona

One of the main squares in Rome, Piazza Navona is a delightful hub of food, culture and charming architecture. One of the first things you’ll notice when entering this piazza is the Egyptian Obelisk, towering over the surrounding buildings of the open square. You'll also visit the beautiful Fountain of Four Rivers in the center of the piazza, known for its intricate sculptures. Your expert guide will delve into the story behind the Stadium of Domitian, the ancient arena that lies beneath today’s piazza.

The Pantheon

Your next stop is the Pantheon—once a Roman temple and now an important Catholic church. Thought to be the best-preserved ancient Roman building in the city, the Pantheon exemplifies classic Greek architecture. You’ll notice how many buildings have been modeled after this classic architecture, such as the US Capitol and the Jefferson Memorial. Your guide will explain the role the Pantheon played in ancient Rome as you explore this grand place of worship.

Spanish Steps

Located in the middle of Rome’s high-end shopping scene, the 18th-century Spanish Steps lead to the Trinità dei Monti church. At the base of the steps, you’ll find another one of Rome’s beautiful fountains, Fontana della Barcaccia, or “Fountain of the Longboat." If you're ambitious enough to climb the Spanish Steps later in your trip, you’ll find the Borghese Gardens, a beautiful park with stunning panoramic views of the city.

Trevi Fountain

You'll continue your walk through the center of Rome, stopping off at the beautiful Trevi Fountain. This 18th-century treasure is the most famous fountain in Rome, and possibly the world. Depicting the Greek god Oceanus, the fountain portrays the changing tides of the ocean. If you toss a coin into the fountain over your left shoulder with your right hand, it's believed that you'll be certain to return to the Eternal City. Your guide will explain the construction and restoration of this Roman icon and allow you to toss your own coin into the fountain.

Pasta Making Class (1 hour)

You final stop is a beloved local restaurant where the chef will be ready to teach you the art of pasta making!You’ll be greeted with a glass of prosecco to get you in the mood, and you'll learn how to make authentic fresh pasta from a true expert. It's a new kitchen skill that's bound to go down well when you get home, and you'll even get to take your own homemade creation away with you.

Authentic Roman Lunch

After you've washed the flour from your hands, it's time for a delicious fresh pasta lunch, prepared by the real experts in the restaurant's kitchen! You'll also enjoy a glass of local wine and a famous Italian dessert—tiramisu.

The pasta that you will eat for lunch will not be the exact pasta prepared during your cooking class. For health code reasons, your lunch will be prepared for you by a professionally trained chef. You will get to take the pasta you created during your class home with you.

The walking tour was extremely educational. Our guide was very informative and fun. We stopped along the way for coffee before we arrived at the restaurant. The owner provided our education and we learned a lot about pasta! Our lunch at the end was superb. Overall this was just a fantastic tour!

Frequently Asked Questions

Where to meet?

In Piazza della Chiesa Nuova, look out for a friendly representative holding a sign with our company name on it.

What to bring?

Wear your comfortable walking shoes and bring a water bottle. Also, since the Pantheon is a religious site, you may be refused entry unless your knees and shoulders are covered. Rome can get how, we know, so you may want to bring a light scarf or sweater so you can cover up just for this part of the tour.

I have to pay a fee for my small child, what does that actually include?

Children ages 6 and younger will be able to assist one of the adults in your group during the pasta-making lesson. Lunch and soft drinks are included for them as well.

What if I have food allergies, intolerances or other requirements?

Please contact us in advance so we can do our best to attend to your needs. Please note that not all allergies or intolerances can be accommodated.

Do I get to eat the pasta I made during the lesson?

No, but you do get to take it home with you! In compliance with the local health and safety laws, you'll be able to take your homemade pasta to-go with you in a container. For lunch, you will still be provided with homemade pasta, made by the restaurant's professional chef.

What do we get to see during the city walk?

We will tour the city's main piazzas and must-see monuments such as Piazza Navona, the Pantheon, the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain.
