A fascinating journey through the beauty and history of Rome

Tour Description

Dive into Ancient Roman history as you explore the Circus Maximus and Aventine Hill. Meet your private guide at the heart of the Eternal City and start your tour to discover the ancient monuments, historic treasures, hidden corners and lovely gardens with sweeping views of the city.

First, you will visit the Circus Maximus, the largest stadium in ancient Rome famous particularly for chariot races. It was an important venue for public entertainments and could accommodate at least four times more people than the Colosseum. Your knowledgeable guide will share the fascinating stories and little-know facts about the popular battles and athletic competitions such as running, boxing and wrestling, that were held in this arena during the Roman Empire.

After that, you will visit the picturesque Aventine hill, the southernmost of the Seven Hills of Rome and an historic neighborhood well known for its observation deck and its beautiful gardens. It is a peaceful area, where you can relax from the bustle of the touristic landmarks and enjoy the hidden corners of Rome. There, you will discover the majestic medieval basilicas, the Rose and Orange Gardens with a breathtaking panorama of the historic center and the famous keyhole at the Knights of Malta entrance which offers the magical view of St. Peter’s Basilica framed by trees.
