insights into the ancient City of Rome

On this page

One of the delights of visiting Rome is the ancient City of Rome. Only a handful of roads wide enough for two vehicles to pass or carry large buses and trucks have been cut through the ancient centre.


The result is a maze of quiet mainly pedestrian lanes and alleys to explore. Evening is a great time to do these walks too, you are spoilt for choice of atmospheric restaurants or bars where you can people watch from an outdoor seat.


There are of course some major tourist attractions in the area like the Trevi Fountain and the Pantheon but for many people there are other less well know self discoveries that capture the imagination upon discovery. Just about around every corner there is something of interest.


A church that anywhere else would be a major tourist attraction here is just a quiet retreat with a few tourists taking in the spectacle inside.


The choice is yours, just get 'lost' in the ancient centre and soak up the atmosphere, get a good guide book and street map and explore independently or take a guided walking tour to get an orientation of the highlights and make sense of the marvels in front of your eyes.


We have also put up some self guided walking routes that get you between the main attractions independently and probably much quickly than a sightseeing bus.

 

Free self guided walks from/to Trevi Fountain

There really is only one way of exploring the ancient city centre of Rome and that's to walk.

Pick-up a good guide book that can explain what you are seeing and you have the recipe for a great independent adventure, day or night.
