What you'll do

A slow walking tour from the Tevere riverbank up to the Aventino hill, among medieval churches and monasteries, knights sanctuaries, secluded gardens and magnificent views of Rome. We’ll climb the hill through a panoramic path, with steps, overlooking the Tevere river and then walk to discover more of this awesome historic place in Rome: We enter the garden that offers a beautiful view of Rome towards the west and the north of the city with S. Peter dome in the center of it. Once reached the top of the hill, here the first of the medieval Basilicas that stands on the Aventino: SS. Alessio e Bonifacio that dates back in the 4th century b.C. We then proceed to enter the Malta Knights square where the Templar Knights used to have their headquarters overlooking the Tevere river. On the left side there stands S. Anselmo with its Catholic University atheneum. We walk back to reach the second of the minor Basilicas, Santa Sabina that dates back to the 5th century b.C. We then walk down the hill passing by S. Prisca church and then we get to viale Aventino. We enjoy a light snack and a drink, italian aperitivo, a casual conversation then "ciao" 'till next time!
