Rome is called the “Eternal City” and to get to know Rome, see all the places and hear all its stories would take an eternity. Maybe that is why many tourists return to Rome again and again to discover something new that they missed last time.
If you have visited Rome before or have time to visit sites that are not mentioned in the regular tour guides, you are welcome to visit “another Rome”. This is a collection of places that date back to ancient times as well as from the modern period. You can find out on this tour where the best panoramic view of Rome can be found and the story about Michelangelo and Raphael’s rivalry.
The majority of the tour’s locations are situated in the city center near the Tiber and, moreover, you will see both banks of the river.
It is recommended that you visit may spots on foot, but some places can be reached only by public transport, and the fastest and more convenient way is the subway. The subway in Rome has only two lines and only one station – Termini, the central railway station.
If you set out from Termini, it’s better to take subway line B (blue) towards Laurentina and get off at the Piramide stop where our tour begins
