Off the beaten path with the qualified guide Marisa
If you have already been in Rome, or if you like going off the beaten path, follow me in the discovery of the untouched Rome.
We'll start with the area around the Tiber River, the Island, where in the ancient time there was a Temple for the God of Medicine, Esculapio.
Then we'll walk accross one of the most genuine area of Rome, the Jewish District when you'll learn about the local jewish community and its life during centuries.
After, we'll see the Forum Boarium, two Repubblican shrines totally preserved (temple of Hercules and Portunus).
If you're interested, we can line to pose with the Mouth of the Truth :)
Finally we'll climb the Aventine Hill, famous for its gardens and churches, ending in the lovely Gardens of Oranges. (during spring we can visit even the Garden of Roses)

Marisa was informative, warm, and tolerant of our millions of questions and follow-up questions. We felt immensely well educated and also really enjoyed hanging out with Marisa, who is lovely. We highly recommend her for her expertise as an archaeologist and personality as a tour guide.
