Ancient Rome Self-Guided City Walk

Legend has it, Rome was founded in 753 BC by Romulus and Remus, the twin sons of Mars, the God of War. The term Ancient Rome refers to the period from the 8th century BC until the fall of the Roman Empire in the 5th century BC.

This is one of two Self-Guided City Walks of Rome (the other is Rome and The Vatican) and has some of the most important sites of the Eternal City including the Colosseum, the Roman Forum and the Circus Maximus.

But it also takes in other sites including the surprising Aventine Keyhole. This is an amazing view that can be seen through a tiny hole in a door, don’t miss it.

Walk Distance 6km / 3.5 miles with a little climb up to the Aventine Hill
