Meet your guide close to Castel Sant’Angelo in central Rome and hop aboard a traditional electric Ape Calessino to begin your tour of off-the-beaten-track Rome. Set off to explore the cobbled alleyways and maze-like backstreets of historic Rome, stopping to stroll around Piazza dell’Orologio, with its Borromini clock tower, and snap photos of the Parrocchia Santa Maria in Vallicella church in Piazza della Chiesa Nuova.
Continue along Via del Governo Vecchio, which connects Piazza dell’Orologio to Piazza di Pasquino, where you’ll learn the legend of Rome’s famous ‘talking statues’. Nearby, stop at Piazza Navona to admire the elaborate Baroque fountains, then pass by the grand Pantheon en-route to lively Piazza Venezia.
There’s still time admire landmarks like Teatro Marcello, Piazza Mattei and the Turtle Fountain, as you wind through the Jewish Ghetto. Finally, end your tour in the bustling central square of Campo dei Fiori, the perfect place to tuck into a tasty ‘maritozzo’, a sweet bun filled with cream.
