Rome Off-the-Beaten Path 3.5-hour Walking Tour

1. Rome Off-the-Beaten Path 3.5-hour Walking Tour

Your 3.5-hour tour begins in Rome’s Jewish Ghetto, one of the most important, but greatly ignored neighborhoods in the city. With roots dating back to the mid-16th century, the area was integral to the development of Roman culture and cuisine, and home to important landmarks such as the Teatro Marcello, which is also known as the Jewish Colosseum. Next, you’ll make quick stops at the famous Mouth of Truth (stick your hand in and tell a lie if you dare). Then you’ll leave the city proper in search of the Appian Way, the most frequented thoroughfare of ancient Rome. Walk along the original paving stones as your expert guide tells you stories about the thriving Empire. From the veneration of Emperor Augustus to the crucifixion of Spartacus, this road played a central role in many of Rome’s greatest events. Your trip outside the walls will take you past the Park of the Aqueducts. Marvel at the giant structures that once provided Rome with fresh running water on demand. Afterwards, head off the beaten path to to Tiber Island, the boat-shaped island which has connected both sides of the Tiber River since antiquity. Onwards, experience some of the lesser-known spots in bohemian Trastevere, starting with a visit and tasting at a historical bakery. Pop into the church of Santa Cecilia, a magnificent complex built upon a 5th-century Basilica, before heading to Testaccio Market, where you'll try a typical roman pasta with a soft drink included.

Fascinating tour with a great tour guide

Amy was an amazing guide. She had an undergrad degree in Ancient Roman History and had lived in Rome for years. She knew details, timelines, and also shared her love and care for the city and all of its monuments, statues, roads etc. The day of our tour there was a cycling competition, which blocked off several routes, disrupting the various sites we were to see. Amy and the driver Fabio worked hard to find ways around and in the end we were able to see everything. I highly recommend the tour and her.

Little gems outside the city

This tour wasn't what we expected. It was even better. We had an excellent guide by the name of Giacomo. He made this tour very interesting and he passed his enthusiasm to the group. We learned a lot of interesting facts, stories and legends. The sites are small hidden gems that you will not see walking around the city. I highly recommend this tour with this particular tout guide.

Stefan was an excellent guide. It was the perfect start to our trip and he went above and beyond to show us all the best parts of the centre of Rome.
