About the tour

Walk with Micky and Adry from the the gate that leads to the whacking Piazza del Popolo and discover the secrets of its fountains, the Flaminio Obelisk, the Parish Basilica of Santa Maria del Popolo and the twin churches all the way to the Baboon fountain, one of the talking statues of Rome. Before discovering why the fountain "talks" we'll stop for an espresso by the Museum Canova Tadolini, a unique Museum/Cafè which used to be the art atelier of the famous neoclassicism sculptor and his apprentice, where every inch is covered with an astounding amount of art work.

Felt like I was actually strolling there with them. The final coffee and the nice opera song at the end made it magical
