What To Expect
Spend your morning at the Vatican Museums. Enter the Sistine Chapel and marvel at some of the world's greatest masterpieces such as the Creation of Adam and the Last Judgment. Proceed to the Pio-Clementino hall to see the Laocoon and Apollo Belvedere.
The last stop on our Vatican tour is the Saint Peter's Basilica. See the hauntingly beautiful La Pieta by Michelangelo, the gold and bronze Balchadin Altar by GianLorenzo Bernini, and the Colonnade just outside the church.
We take a break from touring and stop for lunch and drinks at a restaurant.
We start by exploring the Jewish Ghetto area. Founded in 1555, this ghetto in Rome is one of the oldest in Italy and Europe. Do not miss the Synagogue, built in 1904, one of the area's most important landmarks.
Behind the Synagogue runs Via del Portico d'Ottavia which owes its name to the ruins of the ancient portico built in the 1st century B.C. Inside part of the monument stands the church of
St. Angelo in Pescheria.
Then, we proceed to Tiberina Island by passing through the Ponte Fabricio. Even without specific monuments, the quaint local houses and streets that still retain their medieval charm are enough to draw you in.
Afterward, we head on to one of the most famous and ancient parts of Rome, Trastevere. This area is famous for its restaurants, pubs and magical evening atmosphere, but unbeknownst to many it is also rich in art. We enter Trastevere though Piazza in Piscinula and Via Arco dei Tolomei, named for the medieval arch which can still be seen in the area.
We pass through Via dei Genovesi to Piazza Sonnino, which is home to a well-known medieval construction, Torre degli Anguillara, better known as the "House of Dante."
Toward the end of our tour, we walk down Via della Lungaretta to the Basilica of St. Maria
in Trastevere, one of Rome's precious medieval gems. Inside, admire the apse containing stunning mosaics. The tour ends here, at the very center of Trastevere, and it is up to you to continue with a fun and relaxing walk in the district, or perhaps stop at any of the restaurants or pizzerias for a local meal.
