Tour description

Hi, I'm Arianna , archaeologist and historian of Roman art.

I love history, art, outdoor walks amidst the breathtaking beauty of my city and I can't wait to share the ' Great Beauty ' with you!

I will take you to discover the mysterious eighth hill of Rome, the Janiculum , a symbolic place of the Italian Risorgimento, of the Roman and Garibaldian resistance before Italy became such.
But not only…

We will travel back in time, from ancient Rome to mid-19th century Rome, in the shadow of Garibaldi, Anita and other curious characters, to discover their adventures.

During our walk, we will also focus on other places of historical and artistic interest: we will relive together some stages of ancient Rome, the Renaissance and the Roman Baroque. Towards the end of our tour, at noon sharp, there will be a big surprise!

If you are curious to travel through time to discover one of the most fascinating and romantic places in Rome, don't hesitate to book a wonderful walk with me 😊✨

NB . Minimum number for bookings 2 people ✌️

I wait for you!

Arianna è gentilissima, ci ha subito scritto e dato anche dei consigli per colazione e pranzo in zona. Molto esperta e coinvolgente, si vede che sa di ciò che parla e si vede ancor di più quanto ama ciò di cui parla. Super super consigliata!

Arianna è preparata, professionale simpatica, appassionata e disinvolta. Non perdetevi uno dei suoi tour. Se tutti svolgessero il propio lavoro con la stessa passione Roma sarebbe ancora più bella.
