Overview

Bypass Rome’s tourist hotspots and uncover the lesser-known gems that many visitors miss. Guided by an expert in art history, the 3.5-hour tour introduces you to Caelian Hill with its history-steeped churches and archaeological digs. Check out Case Romane del Celio, an ancient Roman house, and step inside the city’s so-called medieval Sistine Chapel. Visit the papal seat, aka the Basilica of San Giovanni in Laterano, and learn about the city’s history from Roman Empire days to the Middle Ages.  The tour can be tailored to your preferences.

This was a wonderful tour. It showed us a side a Rome and it's history that we did not know existed and would have missed. Our guide was knowledgable, charming and very patient with all our questions. This tour helped us tie together the ancient and Renaissance Rome we had gotten to known over the previous several days
