Overview
If you have an interest in history or are a seasoned traveler looking for a unique Italian experience; our Rome Off-The-Beaten-Path tour is for you. For a full morning you’ll travel with an expert local guide to far-flung sights around Rome, visiting incredible spots rarely seen by visitors — the kind of sights that locals show to visiting friends.
Highlights
  • Discover Rome’s lesser-known landmarks on a tour away from the tourist trail
  • Hear the history behind the ancient Appian Way, Theatre of Marcellus, and more
  • Relax with transport between the sites and save your energy for sightseeing
  • A small-group tour limited to 15 people ensures a personalized experience
What to Expect
With your guide and group, start the tour with a walk into the heart of the Jewish Ghetto. Originating in the 16th century, the enclave is enshrined in Roman culture and is home to landmarks, such as the Colosseum-like Theatre of Marcellus (Teatro Marcello). Swing past the Mouth of Truth (Bocca della Verita), a face-like plaque that’s rumored to bite the hands of liars. Then, pause by Circus Maximus before you continue to the ancient Appian Way. Once the busiest road into Rome, the street is steeped in history. Hear tales of emperors and Spartacus, as you amble along the cobbles and pass into Aqueduct Park. Gaze into the Baths of Caracalla and strike a pose for photos from Janiculum Hill—it’s one of the best city vantage points. Take in other highlights, such as a so-called optical illusion of St. Peter’s Basilica and Rome’s only pyramid. Then, work your way back to central Rome.

Andrea gave us a wonderful informed morning that was a pleasure. His enthusiasm, passion, and knowledge added to the experience. The Aquaduct and Appian Way is as interesting as the other Roman history. This should be promoted more as it really is a hidden gem!
