Info Tour

This Tour cannot be booked online, contact us to book it

We will visit the city center together to discover glimpses and landscapes, you will learn anecdotes and curiosities, combining the history of those places with that of cinema. Our tour will begin with a dutiful tribute to two of the films that have contributed most to making the beauties of Rome known throughout the world: La Dolce Vita and Roman Holiday.
In Via Veneto, we will see the places where Federico Fellini set some unforgettable scenes from La dolce vita, passing through the streets of Audrey Hepburn’s vespa escape in Roman Holiday, until we reach the location of one of the most famous scenes in the history of Cinema : bathing in the Trevi Fountain by Anita Ekberg in La Dolce Vita.
A place that was the backdrop for other well-known films such as Tre Soldi nella Fontana and We were loved so much, one of the most beautiful works by the master Ettore Scola, also filmed in Piazza del Popolo. Here stands the Basilica of Santa Maria del Popolo in which Dan Brown set some scenes of Angels and Demons and where we can admire a beautiful work by Caravaggio. The welcoming square has hosted films such as The Great Beauty, winner of an Oscar, a Golden Globe and four European Awards.
Another interesting area for history and cinema is undoubtedly that of the Vatican.
Fellini used Castel Sant’Angelo to sign his first film, The White Sheik, now included in the list of 100 Italian films to save and Dan Brown set part of the narration of Angels and Demons in the Passetto del Borgo, taking advantage of the mysterious charm of this viaduct which leads to the Vatican Palaces.
Among the Streets, Fountains and Churches of Baroque Rome Brad Pitt was chased on foot by the Italian police in Ocean’s Twelve, Julia Roberts strolled in Eat, Pray, Love and Hepburn with Peck filmed a scene from Roman Holiday.
In Spectre, the last of the 007 saga, James Bond is chased by car at breakneck speed in a deserted Rome, passing through the Colosseum up to the Baths of Caracalla, where the final part of our tour dedicated to the great historical films will begin.
The Appia Antica has been the real protagonist of most of the films that have been set there.
From Ben Hur in the Circus of Maxentius to the award-winning film Gladiator, set in Rome and based on the narratives contained on the Column of Marcus Aurelius. Many films to tell that blend with the history of the places that hosted them in a unique, fun and exciting tour.
