Rome Off The Beaten Path Including Appian Way Aqueducts and Jewish Ghetto
From US$70.00
Spark your intrigue of the Italian capital with a tour of Rome's lesser-known gems. Perfect for those who want to see the sites that the guidebooks sideline, the excursion visits tucked-away treasures such a pyramid and an ancient lie detector test along with better-known attractions like the Ancient Appian Way and the Jewish Ghetto. Even better: Numbers are capped at 15 for a small-group tour.
What to Expect
With your guide and group, you’ll walk into the heart of the Jewish Ghetto. Originating in the 16th century, the enclave is enshrined in Roman culture and is home to landmarks such as the Colosseum-like Teatro Marcello.

Swing past the Bocca della Verità (the Mouth of Truth), a face-like plaque that’s rumored to bite the hands of liars, then pause by Circus Maximus before you continue to the Ancient Appian Way.

Once the busiest road into Rome, the street is steeped in history. Hear tales of emperors and Spartacus as you amble along the cobbles, and pass into the Aqueduct Park. Gaze into the Baths of Caracalla and strike a pose for photos from Janiculum Hill; it’s one of the best city vantage points.

Take in other gems such as a so-called optical illusion of St. Peter’s Basilica and Rome’s only pyramid, then work your way back to central Rome.

Our guide had a gift for story telling and imparted information in a fun and interesting way making history come alive in an entertaining way. He's the one in the jug band!

Camilla was a wonderful tour guide. She's very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. She seems to truly enjoy working with people and sharing her knowledge of her beautiful city. I have taken several tours with Walks of Italy and have always thoroughly enjoyed them. And this...More

Educational, relaxed pace, great tour

Finally a tour where we didn't feel rushed. It was as guide Marta said - a walk with friends! Along with the history of the areas, she filled us in on local tips - how to drink out of a water fountain. The scenery out...More

I love Walks of Italy!

Every time we visit Rome, we try to incorporate one of the Walks of Italy tours. This time we chose Rome Off the Beaten Path. This was a great tour to see parts of Rome you would not ordinarily see. We visited the Jewish ghetto...More

Glad I did this tour, so very interesting!

Had it with overcrowded ruins & stuffy museums? This tour is a welcome reprieve from the hustle and bustle of (admittedly lovely) Rome. The morning starts at a central meeting spot - in our case a cafe next to the Theatre of Marcellus (Teatro Marcello)...More

Great answer by zizzle14. Just adding that the tour will end back at the starting point right at lunchtime, so if you want to sample some authentic Roman Jewish cuisine, you can walk a few blocks back to the ghetto and snag... More

Unfortunately, we only spent about 10 minutes at the aqueducts. I would loved to have had at least an hour to wander about the area, but due to the timing of getting around Rome to the other sites, we were limited to only... More
