What To Expect
Once you feel confident, zoom off along Rome’s ancient streets behind your guide. Breeze through the Jewish Quarter, a bustling district where Romans and tourists alike flock to sample Roman-Jewish and Middle Eastern cuisine and soak up the festive atmosphere. Then continue to the Temple of Hercules and learn the legend behind the so-called ‘Mouth of Truth’ (Bocca della Verità).
Ascend Aventine Hill to Parco Savello, a former orange grove known locally as Giardino degli Aranci (the Garden of Oranges), for a postcard-perfect view of Rome. After you’ve had your fill, seek out the secret peephole that offers an unrivaled view of St. Peter’s Basilica.
Next, stop for a photo opportunity of Circus Maximus, where chariot races were once held, before continuing alongside the Palatine to the mighty Colosseum. Pose in front of the colossal monument, arguably ancient Rome’s most iconic treasure, and then cruise by the Roman Forum, taking in its timeworn buildings and learning about its history.
Continue up Capitoline Hill, one of the original Seven Hills of Rome, to see the square designed by Michelangelo and to visit a beautiful terrace for another panoramic view of the Eternal City.
Make your last stop at the Theatre of Marcellus, once the largest and most important of Rome’s theaters. Your tour then concludes in central Rome.
