The historic center of Rome is often called an “outdoor museum” because many art and architectural masterpieces can be seen just walking down its streets. Among these is the Trevi Fountain – considered the most beautiful Baroque fountain in the world. Although many people are familiar with the legend that tossing a coin in the fountain will guarantee your return to Rome, not many know the stories and secrets behind its construction. The centerpiece of the Piazza Navona is Bernini’s Fountain of Four Rivers with its giant statues of sea gods. There are tales about its construction as well, including a fierce rivalry with another sculptor. While enjoying the Spanish Steps, you’ll learn how they got their name, and, while marveling at the incredible architecture of the Pantheon dome, you’ll learn the truth about the artist Raphael’s death.
