Hi everyone ! My name is Arianna, I am 30 years old and I have a degree in History of Art and Science of Cultural Heritage at Roma Tre. I live in Rome and the place of my heart is the Gianicolo, the eighth hill of Rome! Together with the Gianicolo there is also my other beloved place, made of beauty, nature and breathtaking views: the Aventine Hill. Both are hills rich in history, legends and myths that I can't wait to tell you about! ✨🏛️ I don't live only on art but also on literature, good cinema, good food, nature and all those precious details in which the essence of what we call "beauty" is enclosed. ✨ I love taking long walks and getting lost in the timeless charm of my city. Between history, culture, lightness and laughter I hope to convey to you the immense love I feel for my city and for these two corners of paradise which are 'home' for me! NB. Min number of people for the tour 4 ✨

Tour description

Are you curious to know the Aventine, the southernmost hill of Rome, ancient antagonist of the Palatine hill?
Together we will walk among the timeless wonders of this romantic and enchanted place, whose history dates back to the 7 kings of Rome.
Over the centuries the Aventine has become the main seat of the major ancient and medieval cults of Rome of the past, until it became the "home of the Templars".
Together we will go back in time, we will go through the phases of the hill from ancient Rome to the early 1900s, in a "walking tale " full of legends, stories and anecdotes as well as mysteries. Surprisingly, we will visit a secret and magical corner usually closed to the public.
If you are curious to learn about the ancient Aventine told in all its charm, all you have to do is book a walk through time with me!

I'm waiting for you ✌️✨

Io e le mie colleghe in visita a Roma abbiamo deciso di fare un tour un pò diverso dal solito e abbiamo prenotato il giro dell'Aventino. Abbiamo trovato Arianna che con la sua simpatia, competenza e con il suo entusiasmo ci ha guidato tra meraviglie sconosciute di Roma. È stato così bello che abbiano prenotato anche la visita del giorno dopo con lei al Gianicolo e anche per quello possiamo dire " Arianna è una garanzia"

Passione e simpatia travolgente di Arianna che diffonde a tutti quanti. Scoperta di angoli meno noti ma ricchi di storia e affascinanti che non avremmo sicuramente mai visto senza il tour! Super consigliato!
