There is more to see in Rome than just the Colosseum and the Vatican. Some of the most precious treasures of the Eternal City are inside small churches and museums that should not be missed during your stay.

This tour takes you to the highlights of the Esquiline hill, one of the famous 7 hills on which Rome was founded.

Our itinerary starts from Piazza della Repubblica, one of the city’ most elegant squares. It features the Fountain of the Naiads and the ruins of the Thermal Baths of Diocletian, the largest one in Ancient Rome…it could contain more than 2500 users at the same time.

Next, I will take you to the National Roman Museum to see great Ancient mosaics, statues and frescoes that were found during the last century excavations.

Our visit continues to the Basilica of St. Mary Major, Rome’s largest church dedicated to the Virgin Mary and one of the world’s most precious temples.

Only few steps away we will reach the ruins of the Thermal Baths of Trajan built above the Domus Aurea, Nero’s Golden House.

Walking by the Colosseum we will see an Ancient Roman Aqueduct and the starting point of the Appian Way.

The tour ends with a great visit of the Baths of Caracalla that are the best preserved  in the city.  There, you will clearly  see and understand the ingenious methods used by the Romans to provide fresh water to their pools, saunas and gyms!
