Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Via Cavour, Rome Italy

Your highly-qualified top-rated guide will meet you at 3 pm just outside the Cavour Metro Station, and this is where your walking tour of Rione Monti will begin. Rione Monti is one of the prettiest districts in Rome and is located right in the heart of the city, just a stone's throw from the Colosseum and Piazza Venezia. Your expert guide will make sure you see all the area's highlights and learn all about the district's art, history and culinary traditions. There will also be plenty to interest shopping lovers as you breathe in the atmosphere of what is often called the “real” Rome.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Piazza di San Pietro in Vincoli 4/a, 00184 Rome Italy

The first points of interest on your walking tour are the medieval towers of the Capocci and Graziani families. After that, you will take a stroll to the Church of Saint Peter in Chains, one of Rome's oldest Catholic churches and founded by Empress Eudossia in order to house the chains with which Saint Peter was bound when he was taken prisoner in Jerusalem. Another fascinating feature of the church is a statue of Moses, a funeral monument for Pope Julius II and one of the most highly esteemed works of art from the Renaissance period.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Chiesa di Santa Maria in Monticelli, Via di S. Maria in Monticelli, 28, Rome Italy

Next on the itinerary are the Piazzetta and the Church of Madonna ai Monti, landmarks signalling a hub for the area's nightlife and social activities.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Colosseum, Piazza del Colosseo, 00184 Rome Italy

A labyrinth of old narrow streets and the local market will delight you before you come to the towers of Grillo and Milizie, and the city's famous Trajan's Market, which lies just a short walk from the Colosseum (you not get inside the monument).

With the help of an iPad and other multimedia tools and visual aids, your expert guide will bring history to life in an entertaining and informative way. If you wish, your guide can recommend a number of excellent pizza restaurants and ice cream parlours in the area where you can find refreshment, and the Monti district provides some fantastic opportunities to take some memorable photos of yourselves and the beautiful surroundings. We advise you to wear comfortable shoes as you will have to walk for about half a mile or so (around 1 km), and you will say goodbye to your guide at around 5:30pm outside the Church of Saint Peter in Chains.

Duration: 20 minutes
