Rome Off The Beaten Path Including Appian Way Aqueducts and Jewish Ghetto
US$69,81
Overview
Spark your intrigue of the Italian capital with a tour of Rome's lesser-known gems. Perfect for those who want to see the sites that the guidebooks sideline, the excursion visits tucked-away treasures such a pyramid and an ancient lie detector test along with better-known attractions like the Ancient Appian Way and the Jewish Ghetto. Even better: Numbers are capped at 15 for a small-group tour.
What to Expect
With your guide and group, you’ll walk into the heart of the Jewish Ghetto. Originating in the 16th century, the enclave is enshrined in Roman culture and is home to landmarks such as the Colosseum-like Teatro Marcello.

Swing past the Bocca della Verità (the Mouth of Truth), a face-like plaque that’s rumored to bite the hands of liars, then pause by Circus Maximus before you continue to the Ancient Appian Way.

Once the busiest road into Rome, the street is steeped in history. Hear tales of emperors and Spartacus as you amble along the cobbles, and pass into the Aqueduct Park. Gaze into the Baths of Caracalla and strike a pose for photos from Janiculum Hill; it’s one of the best city vantage points.

Take in other gems such as a so-called optical illusion of St. Peter’s Basilica and Rome’s only pyramid, then work your way back to central Rome.

Yes, we did walk along the Appian Way but it was fairly short, about 15 minutes because the tour takes in a lot of sights. I taken a number of tours with Walks of Italy and have been very happy with all of them. Great... More
