Being on vacation doesn’t mean you have to put fitness on hold. With
LivItaly’s Rome Running Small Group Tour you can run past centuries of history with the ease of running through your home town. Your guide will let you set the pace as he or she steers you around the cobblestone streets of Rome. You’ll pause at breathtaking monuments and still complete a four mile run in about an hour. Running in a city that is not your own, is a unique way to see it all at once and feel like a local! Your guide is there to be both your running companion and still show you around town, explaining what it is your coasting by. What to Expect from Your Rome Running Tour
Your Rome running tour begins at Castel Sant’Angelo. Look up the tomb of the Emperor Hadrian to see the ramparts of a Papal fortress as you stretch for your run. You’ll start out running along the Tiber river to the Cavour Bridge which will carry you over the Tiber.
Run past the mausoleum of Augustus who was buried there in 14 AD before passing the Ara Pacis. This memorial to the Pax Romana of ancient times has been brightened up with glass and travertine but the relief sculptures still pop out as you run by. Next, your running tour Rome goes along a street that has been traveled since the first century BC – Via Ripetta. This street will take you to
Piazza del Popolo, home of an obelisk brought from Egypt by Augustus. Your guide will lead you through the square in a way that will keep you on pace until the next attraction – the Spanish Steps.
“I did the running tour
with Kristin on my first day in Rome
and it was absolutely fantastic! It took
my morning workout to a whole new
level. We hit several key attractions
that turned into my list of place to hit
during the rest of my visit. We made
stops so Kristin could explain all
Pause and re-hydrate as you look at this site so beloved by the literary world before catching your breath at the nearby Trevi Fountain. This cacophony of marble gods and wild horses is busy and gigantic but somehow looks exactly right in the Palazzo Poli.
This running tour will get you a special look at the Fountain of Trevi – you’ll get to see it without the crowds! Early morning is the best time to see Rome’s sites, as tourists are still tucked away in their beds.
Water break over, and your Rome Running Tour heads to Piazza Venezia – Rome’s central hub. Almost all of Rome’s attractions are linked to the piazza but your guide will quickly lead you to the one that towers over the piazza, the Victor Emmanuel Monument.
This mountain of marble was built to honor the first king of unified Italy, Victor Emmanuel. Try to pick out Italy’s Tomb of the Unknown Soldier as you run past.
Your running tour Rome will now run past one of the city’s most picturesque and best-preserved monuments – the Pantheon – before running through to the well known and iconic film square of Piazza Navona. The street performers in this beautiful square will just be setting up for the day as your tireless guide leads you past them and back across the river to end your run at the Castel Sant’Angelo once again. You now have the option of saying good-by to your small group or joining them for breakfast. This will give you the chance to question your guide about the sites you’ve passed and share your impressions with the group over a typical Italian breakfast of cappuccino and croissants, just like the Romans do it! Breakfast After Your Rome Running Tour
One frequent topic of breakfast after the running tour Rome is the Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain. Very few people are able to see these sites without standing in line or getting jostled by a crowd. The Rome Running Small Group Tour painstakingly arranges your run in a way that provides an unobstructed view of these most famous Roman monuments.
Why Book LivItaly’s Rome Running Tour
Running is a great way to get the feel of a city but it is hard to map out a good course when you are unfamiliar with the roads. This Rome Running Tour takes the guesswork out of the equation, especially for a circular city like Rome and provides you with a way to keep your pulse rate up while discovering the heart of the world’s greatest city.
ADDITIONAL OPTIONAL BREAKFAST:
You may choose to end the run socializing and having breakfast with the group and the guide. We chose a spectacular place in the Pantheon Square, where you will be served a typical Italian breakfast made of a warm home-made croissant, Cappuccino (or Espresso) and a freshly squeezed orange juice. Weather permitting, we’ll be sitting outside in the Pantheon square admiring this marvelous monument once again and making friends for a lifetime. The cost of this optional breakfast is 10 Euros, please add it and prepay in your widget.
*The run is about 6.5 kms (4 miles)
