Great beauty of Rome - 4 Days Tour

 

“Yes, I have finally arrived to this Capital of the World! I now see all the dreams of my youth coming to life… Only in Rome is it possible to understand Rome.” Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Day 1 - Arrival and airport transfer to hotel. Trastevere Tour with an exclusive access to cult food & wine venues – 4 hours

Trastevere is one of the prettiest neighbourhoods in Rome with its narrow cobblestone streets, colourful buildings dripping with ivy, and balconies enlivened with geraniums. It feels more like a small town than a capital city.

You can’t leave Rome without walking these streets and tasting the best food. Today on you first evening, explore this photogenic neighbourhood like true VIP on 4-hour evening food tour.  Not only will you try a selection of Italian classics and real Roman street food, but you’ll enjoy exclusive access to some of the city’s cult favourite eating and drinking spots.

Skip the one-hour wait and get seated immediately at Da Enzo al 29, a humble trattoria whose delicious cucina Romana draws a huge local crowd daily. Try a selection of wines in an ancient cellar dating back to 80 BC. Visit Trastevere’s “King of Porchetta”, Piero Iacozzilli, and taste his famous roast pork. Have a stop at Rome’s famous family-owned cookie factory and enjoy the gourmet gelato at Fatamorgana gelateria.

Come back to your small charming hotel by feet, walking through sparkling at night Rome and crossing the magnificent Tiber…

Day 3 - Back in time: Arena, Long-hidden Gladiator Tunnels of Colosseum & Roman Forum – 3 hours

Now, after 1,941 years, that underground area where the gladiators readied for combat is open to the public. After a 10-year renovation of Colosseum, the private area — which was only ever accessible to fighters, animal handlers, and the slaves operating backstage in execrable conditions—is open for guided tours.

Visitors can stroll on wooden walkways, above the original herringbone paving, through the corridors where fighters used to make their entrance into the arena; peek into niches that were used as storage spaces for caged animals such as wild boars and tigers; and even see the remains of the 80 travertine elevators which, powered by slaves, raised gladiators and beasts to the arena floor.

Get the real insight into Rome’s ingenuity and engineering and let you guide take you on a walk back in time!
