Why the Historical Centre?
The historical centre of Rome it's been since 2000 years ago the centre of the most incredible civilization of the past. Emperors, Popes and then Kings strived to leave a sign on the Eternal city, to have their names been written on stone and remembered forever . Men and women coming from all the part of the world made this part of Rome the richest in terms of histories and traditions, and of course local foods, if you know where to go. Plus, given its very central location, we can show you more than one area, including the famous Pantheon, Campo dei Fiori, and the Jewish Ghetto.
