Rome... as you have never imagined.

Ara Pacis Augustae

Discover the hidden (and not-so-hidden) secrets of this well-trodden city

If you have already been Rome and think you have already seen the best after just 3 or 4 days, think again. This Eternal City with a history of nearly 3000 years can easily keep you occupied for weeks on end, with some of the most distinguished museums and archeological sites you can ever think of, wonderful parks, surprising locales, and secret locations that you probably never imagined existed, both within the city limits as well as just beyond.

Go beyond the cursory visit of the Colosseum and dive into the details of its construction. Spend time exploring some off-beat museums and highly unusual neighbourhoods. Wander through the districts of Trastevere and Testaccio to discover artisans and locales which you would never find on your own.
