You meet your officially licensed guide at an agreed-upon location in the center of Rome, and together you start your private walking/rolling tour. If your hotel is located outside the city center, we can reserve an adapted taxi to pick you up.
During this walking tour, you visit Piazza della Rotonde with on the southern part, the Pantheon, the highlight of this square. The Pantheon is an authentic Temple. The informal name of the Patheon is the church of Santa Maria Rotonda. Because of this, the square got its name: Piazza della Rotonda. It is one of the best-preserved Roman buildings in the world. The temple transformed into a church in the 7th century and is still in use today.
In front of the impressive Pantheon, you see the marble Fountain, Fontane del Pantheon, built-in 1575, with a red marble obelisk, and decorated with four dolphins. This Egyptian obelisk was placed at the order by Pope Clemens XI in 1711. Around the Piazza della Rotonda you find the beautiful facades of 18th-century palaces, and many restaurants and souvenir shops.
Your tour continues through the Jewish Ghetto, today, better known as the Roman Ghetto. Many tourists overlook this neighborhood, although this Jewish Ghetto is probably the oldest in the world. During this tour, we delve into the history of the Ghetto and see some hidden treasures and archeological sites. The Jewish Ghetto is located near the Tiber River in the southern part of Campo de’ Fiori since 1555.
After the Roman Ghetto, you bring a visit to Tiber Island. This prominent island with an elongated shape is approximately 270 meters long and 67 meters wide. The island is located in a curve of the Tiber river and is mainly known for the Temple of Asclepius.
After you have admired these historical sights, your guide can advise a place for lunch or a coffee. If your hotel is located outside the city, we can reserve a private adapted vehicle to bring you back to your accommodation.
