Via Ortigara, 3 00195 Roma (RM)

Forum Boarium, Circus Maximus, Aventine Hill

Outside the usual but inside Rome’s heart: even in Rome you only have to leave the most famous itineraries to discover much more.

It seems impossible to be just a few people to follow this itinerary tracking the origin of the town itself, away from crowd and chaos. Forum Boarium, built near the river Tevere, was one of the nerve centres of Ancient Rome. In fact, it was the animal and vegetables market as well as the place where temples were built for several divinities. It must be said that right in this area there are the town origin’s oldest evidence. Today, temples and churches’ ruins together with unusual spot tell us again this ancient past. From the slopes of Capitoline Hill down to the Circus Maximus, one of the roman architectures’ wonders, and looking at the Palatine Hill up on the Aventine Hill gentle slopes to keep marveling of the many souls of Rome. Here, surrounded by green very high pine trees you can breathe an atmosphere of tranquility so hard to find in Rome. Next to St. Sabina’s Church there is the Orange Garden, a panoramic terrace facing one of the most beautiful views of Rome with the Tiber flowing gently in the middle of the town. And then, more history, unusual and beautiful churches and one of the most beautiful view with which Rome will make you fall in love with her.
