Tour description

Your private off the beaten path walking tour takes you through the atmospheric quarters of Trastevere and the Jewish Ghetto, visiting fascinating ancient and medieval sites along the way. It offers a chance to get away from the crowds and discover a different Rome, starting in the cobbled medieval neighborhood of Trastevere. 

Complete with winding narrow streets, medieval architecture, quiet and picturesque alleys, and quaint and cozy restaurants and bars, Trastevere is the real Bohemian area of Rome. Its ancient past is long lost, but its medieval character survives. You'll see both come together as we cross the river's only island - the Isola Tiberina - across Rome's oldest bridge. In fact, since the Roman Republic this island has served as a place of healing - first with the ancient asklepion; now with the Hospital of the Fatebenefratelli. 

We will then enter and visit the Jewish Ghetto with its complex variety of history, architecture, and tradition. It’s one of the most fascinating areas of Rome, one with the highest number of examples of medieval architecture - out of the very few - that still stand in Rome.

We will conclude our walking tour in yet another interesting area: Campo de’ Fiori, once the site of executions. Dominating the middle of the square is the statue of Giordano Bruno, the most famous martyr of the Inquisition. Today, far from executions, Campo de' Fiori one of the most bustling fruits and vegetable markets in Rome at daytime and one of Rome’s favourite places for the movida at night.

The tour will end at the site of Julius Caesar’s murder. Not far from Campo de' Fiori is the Large di Torre Argentina, another fascinating place. It was adjacent to the ancient Theatre of Pompey, amidst its surviving temple complex, that the great Roman statesman was killed on the Ides of March – 15th March – in 44 B.C. We'll conclude the tour by going through the grizzly details of how it happened.
