About This Experience

If you love visiting sites overlooked by tourists, you'll enjoy this slow and fascinating walk with locals in an off-the-beaten-path area of Rome. You’ll climb Aventino hill, one of Rome’s seven hills on which the city was founded in the 8th century BC. During medieval times, monks and knights chose to build their monasteries and sanctuaries here. Your guide will take you through this awesome historic and lesser-known site, including gardens, basilicas, an ancient venue for games (Circus Maximus), and panoramic views of Rome. An informative and interesting experience, only locals who know this place so well can offer such a friendly and special atmosphere! You'll top off this memorable tour by sharing an aperitivo with your hosts– a wonderful opportunity to ask about everyday life as a modern Roman!
