Go outside the crowd and enjoy Rome

This tour allows you to discover two amazing areas -full of history, art and architecture - where usually tourists don't go.
We will visit a wonderful area built in the Twenties and another cozy area - the oldest of Rome - where the history was born.

I'm leading you into a world who seems unreal and you'll learn many things about Rome and its history.


We're visiting first the Coppedé area: built during the Twenties, you'll be very surprised to see something like that in Rome. Houses plenty of details looking like fantasy buildings.

Then we're moving to Monti area: close to Colosseum, we visit the ancient area of Suburra, considered during the Roman Empire as the worst part of the city so that Caesar ordered to build a division wall from there! Now it's a cozy area full of unconventional shops: curiosities, vintage shops, local artisans shops!
