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.
Why Travelers Choose This Tour
Santo Stefano Rotondo is an eye-opening church with its round design and large interior. But, gaze at the walls, and you’re in for a more gruesome surprise. Grizzly frescoes of Christian martyrdom and death bedeck the interior, making it a church you won't easily forget.
