This is a super interesting tour that will give you a more in-depth experience of ionici areas such as the Jewish Ghetto and Trastevere and will give you the wonderful opportunity to admire other treasures of Rome like the remarkable Roman aqueducts in the area of the Appian Way and the Testaccio Marketplace. And here is the cherry on the cake!!!! A delightful plate of Roman pasta, a choice of Carbonara, Amatriciana, Cacio e Pepe or Gricia, abundant and tasty. Traditional Roman recipes in the most traditional atmosphere of the most traditional Roman market.

This tour allows an in-depth experience of some ionic areas of Rome such as the Jewish Ghetto, Tiberine Island, Trastevere and the Roman Aqueducts on the Appian Way. Each one of these places is presented and explored in a way that would be impossible to accomplish by oneself. The Tour Guide Andrea Silvestri captured everybody's attention and continued to fascinate us all throughout the tour with his profound knowledge and sensitive comments. I was particularly moved by Andrea's description of the events in the Ghetto during WWII and of St Cecilia's story. Andrea is much more than an excellent tour guide, he is a very interesting and charismatic person with an unusual knowledge of his city and a very good sense of humour. The Testaccio Marketplace at the end of the tour is the cherry on the cake!

This was our favourite tour during our week in Rome! The guide was hugely knowledgeable, friendly and humorous. He was very happy to answer all questions and was not patronising if the question proved to be slightly ignorant. The aqueducts along the Appian Way was a huge treat with this being the only tour I could find to offer this destination. The final stop-off - the markets - was of less interest and was not the most convenient venue to find one’s way back to the city centre/hotel. Having said that, the guide was very helpful to advise the best way (buses, roads etc and what to see on the way) to navigate home.

Rhianne was a fantastic guide and showed her love for the subject matter all along the way. It was great to have a driver and headphones made it easy to follow without crowding. Highly recommended
