Sites you’ll visit

  • Roman Houses on the Celio Hill
  • Museo di Pietro Canonica
  • The Celio hill was a notable wealthy residential district during the Republican-era and Imperial Rome alike. The hill, one of 7 within Rome, is where the greatest soldier of Julius Caesar lived, and the site where the expensive material of Marble was first found within a house in the age of Rome. Lavish villas complete with murals and mosaics have since been found. It has even been said that the great Emperor Marcus Aurelius was born on the Caelian Hill in 121.

Tour description

A 2000 years long journey through the Eternal City's lifestyle: a true local experience!

This is the best way to fully understand how the Romans lived their everyday life, from ancient times up to this day.


The tour starts with the visit of the Roman Houses on the Coelian Hill, an incredibly rich and interesting area; the buildings, brought to light in 1887, are located underneath a medieval basilica: originally an insula (the typical working class home), the house was transformed in a domus, an elegant upper class residence.


Then we'll move in the wonderful landscape of Villa Borghese, one of the greenest parks of Rome, where we're going deep into the life of an artist.

We'll visit the private apartments and atelier of Pietro Canonica, neoclassical sculptor and composer, where he lived and worked until his death, in 1959.

The building, now an unique museum, still houses the original furnitures and the tools used by the artist, who found in Rome his unexpected source of inspiration.


A 100% Roman experience!
