Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps Virtual Tour: In the Footsteps of the Grand Tour

duration 1.5 hours

Tour Overview

Join expert guide and legendary storyteller Thomas on a virtual exploration of two of the most beautiful monuments in the Eternal City - iconic Trevi fountain and the romantic Spanish Steps. One of the great masterpieces of Baroque urban design, discover how the dazzling sweep of the Spanish Steps has been a meeting place for artists and poets, lovers and layabouts for nearly three centuries - and how there’s nothing really Spanish about them. Following in the footsteps of the grand tourists of centuries past, we’ll also be beating a trail to the nearby Trevi fountain - an extraordinary masterpiece of Baroque sculpture where the dramatic power of water takes centre stage. Learn all about the fascinating history of the fountain, and mentally toss in your coin to make sure we’ll be seeing you in the Eternal City in person very soon!

Meet your Guide: Thomas

Hi, I’m Thomas. A native of Florida, I studied History in the United States and France, Art History in France and Italy, and Archaeology in Italy. I am one of four brothers, one of many Tolkien fans, and one of very few native English-speaking licensed tour guides in Rome, where I have lived and worked with Through Eternity Tours since 2006. My particular interests are medieval history, Baroque painting, pork products, tasty cakes, and full-figured red wines. I speak English, French, Italian, a smattering of Spanish, and a few German swear words.

Dear Thomas, It was lovely to travel with you again on Tuesday. Thank you for another lovely experience. I did look up the name of the hotel where I stayed in 2012 when I spent two weeks alone in Rome and discovered Through Eternity Tours. I stayed at Hotel Homs at 71 Via Della Vita - only a short walk to the Spanish Steps! It is a small hotel, but charming. Warmly, Arden
