Just when you think you've seen it all...there's much more to the Eternal City!


For those of you who "think" you've seen all of Rome and then some. . . wait. . . there's more! On this tour you will experience the off the beaten track area's of interest. The places where few folks go and calm walks and primo photo shots are experienced.

We will go, see and do the following places and more:
The Chiesa de Santa Prassede: On a quiet side street near the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore, this small, easy-to-miss church is a gem. From the outside it looks nothing special, but venture in and you'll be bowled over by some of Rome's most dazzling Byzantine mosaics. The 9th-century apse designs are beautiful but for a full-on, jaw-dropping spectacle, check out the Cappella di San Zenone. The Quartiere Coppedè- Taking a stroll in the Quartiere Coppedè, Northeast of Villa Borghese. This pocket-sized district, designed in the 1920s by a little-known Florentine architect, Gino Coppedè, is a fairytale mishmash of turreted villas, towers, gargoyles, arches and graceful palm trees. Villa Gulia too!

Itinerary

The Museo Nazionale Etrusco di Villa Giulia is one of Rome's great unsung museums. Housed in an elegant Renaissance villa, its superb collection of Etruscan treasures provides a fascinating introduction to the mysterious people who ruled central Italy before the Romans. Must-sees include a 6th-century BC tomb, the Sarcofago degli Sposi (Sarchophagus of the Betrothed), and the terracotta Apollo di Veio.

Overlooked by an ancient pyramid, the Cimitero Acattolico (Non-Catholic Cemetery; cemeteryrome. it) is a verdant oasis of peace in the bustling Testaccio district. An air of Grand Tour romance hangs over the site where up to 4000 people lie buried, including the English poets John Keats and Percy Shelley, and Italian political thinker Antonio Gramsci. Outside the cemetery walls, Testaccio is a top spot for a taste of nose-to-tail cuisine. Many of Rome's trademark offal dishes originated in the area, and there are any number of trattorias still serving them, including longtime favourite Da Felice
