What You'll Do
  • Enjoy a walking tour of Rome’s old Jewish Ghetto and learn about its historic and cultural importance
  • Marvel at the size of the Circus Maximus, ancient Rome’s chariot-racing arena
  • Walk along the Appian Way and hear stories of the grandeur and brutality of the Roman Empire
Walk with an expert guide to see far-flung sights scattered around Rome. Visit some incredible places rarely seen by visitors. Learn about the influence of the old Jewish Ghetto on Rome’s culture, stop at the Mouth of Truth, and walk along the Appian Way.
What to Expect
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) and the giant Circus Maximus, the ancient chariot racing arena. 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.

See the famous Baths of Caracalla, which channeled water from the aqueducts into a public bathing area that accommodated over 1,600 people at a time.

Perhaps the best views and photo ops in the city are from the Janiculum Hill, which is the final stop on the tour.
