Itinerary description

Enjoy a walk along the Tiber River to discover the museums, historic squares in Rome and the wonderful Sant'Angelo Castle.
We recommended to walk from one place to another since all the locations are in the city center or along the river.
Time Required:
It takes about  8 hours to visit all of the sites mentioned, depending on how much time you decide to stay in each place.

Our itinerary starts from People’s Square (Piazza del Popolo), easily reached by Flaminio Train Station or by subway at "Flaminio" (Line A). From Piazza del Popolo take Via di Ripetta, straight down to the Ara Pacis, one of the most famous monuments in Rome, built in 9 BC to celebrate Emperor Augustus . If you want, you can visit the museum, open all week except Mondays. Now continue your fun tour of Rome along the Tiber River, walking on Lungotevere Marzio and continuing on Lungotevere Tor di Nona. On your right you'll find one of the most beautiful monuments of Rome, Sant’Angelo Castle. Walk across the Sant'Angelo Bridge to get to the front gates of the spectacular castle, built by emperor Hadrian in 125 DC. If you're not too tired, we suggest you visit the castle, where you will find beautiful papal apartments and Hadrian's Mausoleum. For tickets contact the Turist Info Point Sant'Angelo Castle. Continue your walking your down Via della Conciliazione to get to St Peter's Square where we suggest you visit the St Peter's Basilica. After visiting the many attractions of Vatican City, which could take quite a while,  go back to Via della Conciliazione andturn right onto Via San Pio X.  Cross Ponte Vittorio Emanuele II which leads to Corso Vittorio Emanuele II and turn left onto Via del Governo Vecchio.  This lively street leads to Navona Square (Piazza Navona) where you can stop for a break and check out the square and its fountains. Now take Via del Salvatore and then Salita dè Crescenzi until you reach the Pantheon, one of the most characteristic monuments of the historic centre. We suggest you visit the monument to see the famous “big hole”. From Piazza della Rotonda, head straight down on Via della Rotonda until Corso Vittorio Emanuele II. Turn left onto Via dei Baullari and you'll soon arrive in Campo dei Fiori, the famous roman flower market where you can enjoy some shopping and drinks!
