A private walking tour towards a unusual side of Rome off the beaten track that most tourists never get to experience!
As tourist guide my task is to reveal you not only the most evocated landmarks but, above all, the secret jewel-case of the Eternal City, that means the less visible treasures and all the unusual and less-frequented sites, the Rome off the beaten track!
Starting with the enchanting beauty of the AVENTINE hill, the "hill of the poetry", a unusual side of Rome that most tourists never get to experience, we will admire the breathtaking view over Rome afforded by the GARDEN OF ORANGES, one of the most suggestive and "secret" place of the Eternal City and the stupendous church of Santa Sabina (5th-century).
Once being discovered the fascination of the Aventine hill, we will head the JEWISH GHETTO (considered the most ancient of the western world), then the TIBERINA ISLAND before concluding our pleasant walking tour in the picturesque roman medieval neighborhood of TRASTEVERE!

Dino was fantastic! He met us at our front door on the Aventine Hill and guided us through the Aventine area, Circus Maximus, Palatine, Forum, Jewish Quarter and beyond. He was able to explain the significance of the area where we were staying with visits to the the Basilica S.S. Bonifacio e Alessio and the Basilica Santa Sabina. I would write much more but suffice it to say that our time in Rome was much grander with Dino's assistance early in the trip. I highly recommend Dino as a guide.
