Walks: Campidoglio To Trevi Fountain, Rome (4K)

This Rome tour starts at the Campidoglio which is a hilltop square designed by Michelangelo. This square is lined with museums and offers views of the Roman forum. On our way to the Colloseum we pass the Forum Romanum ruins on both sides of the Via dei Fori Imperiali. Probably the most famous sight in Rome is the Colosseum which we almost circle around. We go uphill after the Parco San Gregorio al Celio. There we look around some more busy areas with cafés and restaurants, where the locals have their lunch. At last we get to the Piazza del Quirinale and Trevi Fountain, which is another famous sight and one of the most popular selfie backgrounds for tourist in this great city.

Rome Walks: The Trevi Fountain & Pantheon

The Trevi Fountain is a fountain in the Trevi district in Rome, Italy, designed by Italian architect Nicola Salvi and completed by Giuseppe Pannini and several others. Standing 26.3 metres (86 ft) high and 49.15 metres (161.3 ft) wide, it is the largest Baroque fountain in the city and one of the most famous fountains in the world. The fountain at the junction of three roads marks the terminal point of the “modern” Acqua Vergine, the revived Aqua Virgo, one of the aqueducts that supplied water to ancient Rome. In 19 BC, supposedly with the help of a virgin, Roman technicians located a source of pure water some 13 km (8.1 mi) from the city. (This scene is presented on the present fountain’s façade.) However, the eventual indirect route of the aqueduct made its length some 22 km (14 mi). This Aqua Virgo led the water into the Baths of Agrippa. It served Rome for more than 400 years.

The Pantheon from Greek Pantheion, “temple of all the gods” is a former Roman temple and since the year 609 a Catholic church (Basilica di Santa Maria ad Martyres or Basilica of St. Mary and the Martyrs), in Rome, Italy, on the site of an earlier temple commissioned by Marcus Agrippa during the reign of Augustus (27 BC – 14 AD). It was rebuilt by the emperor Hadrian and probably dedicated c. 126 AD. Its date of construction is uncertain, because Hadrian chose not to inscribe the new temple but rather to retain the inscription of Agrippa’s older temple, which had burned down.
