You may only visit Rome once in your life so make sure you experience only the best when you are here. The best pizza rossa, the best views and some spots where you can relax with the modern day Romans are all to be discovered with your longtime local guide. Of course you can’t help but take in some of the wondrous history of the eternal city along the way in this wonderful balance of old and new.
Start your Rome tour at the beautiful Piazza Farnese. The piazza is home to a building designed by Michelangelo which is now the French embassy.
Walk to the nearby Campo de’ Fiori, discover one the most beloved spots by the people of the Italian Capital and the only square in Rome without a church. In the square’s food market there is plenty of time to mingle with the locals as they bargain with vendors for delicious products, and even get some great local tips from your Rome guide.
Stop at bakery where they make some of the best pizza rossa (with tomato and mozzarella) in Rome, as well as all sorts of bread, freshly baked and hot from the oven. From here we walk away from the crowds to Piazza Mattei to see the Turtle Fountain and enjoy the lively atmosphere with nearby bars bustling with Roman youth, a great place to learn about the aperitivo tradition.
The next stop is the Jewish ghetto filled with kosher restaurants and shops where you get to know about the delicious specialties of the Roman Jewish food. Learn about how the area was affected during the war and pass by the synagogue. Nearby is the Marcellus Theatre, an ancient Roman theatre that has been incorporated in Renaissance buildings. These buildings have been converted into homes that are thousands of years old, which gives this Rome trip a unique sense of history.
Continue walking and climb the Capitoline hill to see the square designed by Michelangelo and the imposing statue of Marcus Aurelius. Reach the terrace for beautiful views over the Roman Forum and the countless Rome attractions dotted throughout the city.
Afterwards continue your Rome walking tour to Piazza Venezia home to a huge monument to King Vittorio Emanuele II, one of the most famous landmarks of the Eternal City, known locally as “the typewriter” due to its shape.
Have a look at the Trajan Column and the Trajan Markets where the ancient Romans did their trades and finish the tour at a good place where you can sample more delicious local food and wines for your lunch break.
