This is a unique adventure, the only one in Rome where historical figures come alive, walk with you and tell you their stories. It is the ultimate time travel adventure!
First up, meet Saint Peter near St. Peter’s Square. Now finally you can ask him why he is always holding the keys, yes the two keys. Listen well as he tells you why this famous square bears his name. And how shouting the words, “water the ropes” could cost a man his life. St. Peter has some good stories to share!
Next up, meet a Roman Emperor. And not just any, but a really important one. The only one with a beard! Yes he was the jet-setting and trend-setting emperor so come and meet Emperor Hadrian. Walk with him as he takes you to see his very own castle: Castel Sant’Angelo. Listen to his travels and adventures and interesting stories. Follow one of the most beloved emperors of the empire to check out this mystical, mysterious castle in the middle of Rome.
Then the last but certainly not the least, meet Gian Lorenzo Bernini. Some say Bernini is Rome and Rome is Bernini because his works and masterpieces are found in almost all famous places in Rome. Some even say that what Shakespeare is to drama, Bernini is to sculpture. So take advantage of this once in a lifetime chance to walk with one of Rome´s best sculptor, if not the best. Let Bernini walk you through the narrow and maze-like alleys and listen as he tells you about his life and works, taking you step-by-step through time with a first-hand experience of his art. Ask him how he shaped marble as if it was dough! As the tour comes to a close, do not miss the chance get some inside information about the famous fountain in the very heart of the square, by listening to the artist of the fountain himself.
Get to know that side of Rome that so many visitors miss. Learn some more about the history, culture and art of this amazing city – in a fun and interactive way. Remember, storytelling is way better when you hear it straight from the story and history makers themselves. Time to meet some real heroes!
