Rome Off-the-Beaten Path 3.5-hour Walking Tour

1. Rome Off-the-Beaten Path 3.5-hour Walking Tour

Your 3.5-hour tour begins in Rome’s Jewish Ghetto, one of the most important, but greatly ignored neighborhoods in the city. With roots dating back to the mid-16th century, the area was integral to the development of Roman culture and cuisine, and home to important landmarks such as the Teatro Marcello, which is also known as the Jewish Colosseum. Next, you’ll make quick stops at the famous Mouth of Truth (stick your hand in and tell a lie if you dare). Then you’ll leave the city proper in search of the Appian Way, the most frequented thoroughfare of ancient Rome. Walk along the original paving stones as your expert guide tells you stories about the thriving Empire. From the veneration of Emperor Augustus to the crucifixion of Spartacus, this road played a central role in many of Rome’s greatest events. Your trip outside the walls will take you past the Park of the Aqueducts. Marvel at the giant structures that once provided Rome with fresh running water on demand. Afterwards, head off the beaten path to to Tiber Island, the boat-shaped island which has connected both sides of the Tiber River since antiquity. Onwards, experience some of the lesser-known spots in bohemian Trastevere, starting with a visit and tasting at a historical bakery. Pop into the church of Santa Cecilia, a magnificent complex built upon a 5th-century Basilica, before heading to Testaccio Market, where you'll try a typical roman pasta with a soft drink included.

You can choose from a menu of freshly made food for a sit down lunch at a natural spring just outside of the city, where the remains of Roman temple can be seen.

Cycling from Rome out into the countryside is quite an experience and will remain an amazing memory when you see the rolling fields and trees of the Appia Antica Regional Park. On our way back into Rome, we can stop to visit the Catacombs. Whilst the entry ticket is not included in the price there is not any extra charge from us if you want to include this site.

This was a great tour to have booked! If you take the metro to get there, it's super easy to walk from the nearest metro station to the bike shop (or you can taxi/uber). Glenn was our tour guide, and he was fantastic! It's an absolutely beautiful trail you ride on, with plenty of opportunities to stop and take in the scenery, take some photos, and hear a little about the history of the Appian Way. We stopped to see a few of the ancient aqueducts as well! One of my favorite parts was where we stopped for lunch - it's a small local-run market type of area, with several local vendors selling fresh fruit, delicious wine, and many other choices for whatever you're looking to eat! There are bathrooms and a place to fill up your water bottle here as well. Glenn seemed to know some of the vendors and introduced me to one of them, where I tried their wine and chatted for a bit (he helped translate for me!) Overall, I would book this tour again and recommend you do too!

Great time for our family of 6. Leopoldo and Glen were both great to work with and spend a morning with. Nice to get out of the city for some fun. The cool breeze on the bikes was super. And the bike! They were wonderful!! I was a skeptical, having never riden an e-bike before, but we all loved them and they assisted us like a charm from start to finish! Would definitely recommend this outing. And grab some gelato or iced coffee at the shop next door after!

It was very enjoyable and Glen was very knowledgeable about the area. It was a beautiful ride. Be sure you can keep up as we did zip along in some areas and it can get bumpy. It was really nice to get away from the crowds.

Our guide was knowledgeable, likeable and well informed. The route was enjoyable and unforgettable. Our guide was very safety conscious and helpful. Our first experience on e-bikes was as excellent.

Highly recommend this trip! It was the best thing we did whilst visiting Rome. Our tour guide Glenn was excellent. You see so much and learn so much on this tour.
