TOUR ITINERARY

Overview

The walking tour starts with an awesome view of the “Piramide Cestia”, the only surviving Pyramid of ancient Rome: when Pharaos culture from Egypt had a major influence on habits of Romans upper class.

The Testaccio walking tour then heads to the “Non Catholic Cemetery”, a garden in the heart of Rome: also called “the lost poets park“, silent, peaceful and inspiring, with its awesome monumental graves, that hosts the remaines of British poets Shelley and Keats, of many painters, sculptors and artists, a number of scholars and several diplomats: a unique and magical place that offers shelter to a number of privileged cats as well.

The walking tour then reaches the “Testaccio food market” where we will enjoy a tasty supplì (a fried ball of rice with tomato and mozzarella), a slice of pizza, a sip of “romanella” (a popular local sparkling wine), a juicy “panino” and a nice chat about Rome and its bi-millenial history. An experience with locals from meeting to farewell.

  1. 5 out of 5

    What a day! I didn’t expect anything like this: it is a tour that goes beyond any expectation, a part of Rome that is definitely different from the one I knew. The cemetery is such a special place that you seem to be dreaming; then the vibes you get walking around the food market and all those juicy and tasty food, what can I say: I really recommend it! Thank you to my hosts they were such a nice and lovely company.
