What You Can Expect

Rome Running Tour

Enjoy a different way of touring around Rome!

Begin your running tour at the historic Castel Sant’Angelo in Rome, where you’ll meet your guide and discuss your running experience to make sure everyone is on the same page. Guides keep a moderate pace so that you can enjoy some sightseeing while still listening to the commentary.

The running route takes you along the Tiber River and over the Ponte Cavour. Pass the excavated Mausoleum of Augustus and the Ara Pacis, dedicated to the Roman goddess of Peace, both of which date from the 1st century BC. Continue to Via di Ripetta and the vast Piazza del Popolo. Pause briefly in the square to rest a moment and listen to stories about Giacomo Valadier, the designer of the piazza; about the gateway built for Queen Christina of Sweden; and about how the piazza featured in Dan Brown’s novel, Angels and Demons.

Set off again through some of Rome’s less popular streets, including one full of chic shops where famous filmmaker Federico Fellini used to live, and arrive at the Spanish Steps. This 18th-century grand staircase offers another chance to catch your breath before continuing your run toward the Trevi Fountain.

Stop again briefly to toss a coin in the famous fountain, ensuring that you’ll return to Rome. Keep running past the Pantheon and then through Piazza Navona with its souvenir stalls and artists at work. Listen to stories of the Bernini fountain in the center of the piazza, called the Fountain of the Four Rivers.

Conclude your running tour where it began, at Castel Sant’Angelo.

Please Note: The Trevi Fountain is undergoing a major restoration through late 2015. The sculptural work is covered and the water has been drained, but there is a walkway above the central part of the central part of the fountain so you can see the ongoing restoration work. You can still toss a coin into the fountain, of course.

Oh my goodness! The MOST fun I had in Rome. Perfect pace and my guide was the sweetest! I would recommend to anyone, even if you and #39;re not a great runner because you stop frequently to take in the sights. I also learned so much and the tour took me places I later shared with my friends.

This was a wonderful way to see the main sights of Rome, learn something, and get in a run. It was wonderful for both the mind and body! The guide was friendly, knowledgeable, and set the perfect pace. You couldn't ask for anything more on a running tour.

We met Christine, our tour guide, at 9:00 a.m. on a very hot morning in Rome. Slow pace was fine and she was very good in making sure we were regularly passing by public water fountains, grazie! She was happy to accommodate our slow pace 12-13 minute miles and she encouraged us to ask questions, made recommendations about other places to visit and see. And then...she had to go to work. My daughter and I recommend Christine for this tour/experience as it is a fun way to see and learn about Rome. Grazie Christine!

I really enjoyed the tour! I would have liked to have done it at the start of my stay in Rome so I could share what I learned with my family. It was fun to hear new information about sites I have visited a few times before. Our guide was friendly and well - informed. I certainly recommend this for anyone who would like to combine a jog with a tour.
