Hi everyone ! My name is Arianna, I am 30 years old and I graduated in History of Art and Cultural Heritage Sciences at the University of Roma Tre. I live in Rome and the place of my heart is the Janiculum, the eighth hill of Rome! Together with the Janiculum there is also much more. Urban corners made of beauty, nature, breathtaking views and remote corners full of charm and legends. Every tour means something to me and you will discover this profound meaning by walking in my company✨🏛️ I do not 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 define as "beauty". ✨ 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 corners of paradise that are 'home' for me! NB. Minimum 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 ✌️✨
