A Day Away From Crowds! Underground, Panorama, Optical Illusions ... with Lunch!

Beneath, Above and Beyond ... With lunch!

This half-day tour starts with a visit to Basilica San Clemente, which provides an insight to 2000 years of history in three ground layers. After that, the tour takes you on the less-known Caelian Hill where ancient Roman Houses were discovered. It continues towards the oldest entertaining venue, Circus Maximus and the Aventine hill where you will enjoy the stunning views over Rome away from crowds.

You will wrap up the experience in one of the local restaurants with a typical Roman lunch or dinner.

This tour will make you see Rome from different points of view, discovering some of its hidden gems and optical illusions. As such it provides an overview of Roman cultural history, supported with examples from architecture and arts, which makes it a great experience for those who just arrived in the city, as well as, for those who have already seen the major “must-see” sights and are looking to experience something different.
