Return Details

Piramide metro station
Follow a true local off-the-beaten track and wander through two of the most authentic districts in Rome: the historic Testaccio and the post-industrial Ostiense.

Both lively and controversial, these neighborhoods provide a perfect backdrop to discover more about Rome's local culture and contemporary lifestyle, just a few steps away from the busy city center!

After walking by the stunning Egyptian-style Piramide of Cestius (a 1st century BC mausoleum of a rich Roman senator) and the adjacent Non-Catholic Cemetery of Rome (resting-place of notable artists among which the British romantic poets Keats and Shelley), you'll visit the historical market of Testaccio, recently relocated into a modern, elegant facility.

You'll take a stroll through local farmers’ stalls and street food kiosks. Taste yummy specialties and breath in the powerful scents and aromas of local culinary traditions.

Founded in late 19th century to accommodate the growing working class of Rome, Testaccio has been recently turning into a more lively and trendy district, but it still conserves a unique popular soul. No wonder you may still come across elder residents sitting on a street bench or watching over kids playing and laughing in a cozy square.

This is where modern street culture got rooted in Rome and where contemporary artists started painting the walls of abandoned and run-down buildings to give them a new life.

You will have the opportunity to appreciate some of these fascinating works, both in Testaccio and in Ostiense, busy industrial heart of Rome in the 1950s, nowadays a cultural melting pot and student district.

The itinerary can be 100% personalized based on your requests, so please let us know what you want to do and see and we’ll think of an unforgettable tailor-made experience.
