We are going to start diving into my favorite Trastevere neighborhood with the introduction to Italian history on the peak of the highest hill of the Eternal City, where locals enjoy wonderful panoramas. This is the spot with the most delicious and inexpensive Roman bars and restaurants.

This private walking tour is ideal during first days of your Roman holidays since after it, I am sure, you are going to have lunch and dinner only in Trastevere

During this tour you will discover:

  1. The story of unification of Italy and achievements of national hero, Giuseppe Garibaldi
  2. Where shootings of the most beautiful movie about Italy “The Great Beauty” (La Grande Bellezza) and scenes of “Spectre” about James Bond took place
  3. Interesting facts about the grandfather of famous Trevi Fountainthe Fountain of Acqua Paola. Also, you will learn how to recognize authors of architectural masterpieces (fountains, churches)
  4. Where to eat the best Italian pizza in Trastevere and the story of its creation

  5. Where the love of famous Raphael Santi used to live
  6. My favorite restaurants and bars where I usually have a dinner and invite friends. You will find out places where you can pay 30-45 euro per two for an excellent dinner with wine, while other tourists pay 50 and more euro in touristic places
  7. Where Roman guys do marriage proposals to their lovers. The tour starts on the Janiculum hill, where we will see magnificent panorama of Rome and views of the Vatican

At the end of the tour, you will have a special:

In the last part of the tour, we will visit one of the best bistro restaurants in Rome, Bottega Fienaroli. The owner of the restaurant, Giacomo, is in love with Italian cuisine.
