    I'm a positive and curious traveller around the world but when at home I like to share stories and anecdotes of my city. Since I was a child, I like to ride and promote cycling in Rome. I'm a passionate about sea sports such as surf and windsrsurf and as soon as possible I travel to catch some waves. My background of studies, I’m a geographer, helps me to make my itineraries more appealing, focusing on a mix of historical information, anecdotes and curiosities.

  • What you will see and do

    We will go around for about two hours in the neighborhoods of Testaccio and Ostiense. I will be glad to show you aspects of the city that otherwise you would probably not get to know, exploring areas with an ancient history that were shaped by continuous transformations up to recent times, also being reinvented as alternative centers of the Roman night life.

    The walk starts from Testaccio district which was home to the Emporium port, where the bulk of the Romans’ food supply funneled into the city and it ends in the quirky Ostiense neighborhood, with its modern vibes, hosts Rome’s universities and is rich in art, culture, and cuisine.

    During the walk it will be possible to guess important people drawn in a mural; walk by the most ancient artificial hill of history; eat the best Roman sandwich in town; enter in a very peculiar cemetery, admire the best-preserved pyramid of Rome; enter in an occupied building and something more!

    We will have a coffee or a cappuccino in one of my favorite places.

    I'm sure you will not forget this experience!!!
