Alternative Rome: City Transformations & Street Art with a Geographer


Join me on this off the beaten track tour of Rome’s hip and happening neighborhoods. I'll show you how historic and modern Rome come together. Then we’ll relax and take in the cool vibes of the local’s favorite entertainment and arty areas. You’ll discover a side to the Eternal City that you wouldn’t otherwise see. Rome’s Testaccio area is seriously reinventing itself, and we are going to experience the best of it. Get your history fix at the Pyramid of Cestius and visit an ancient harbor used by the Romans two thousand years ago. Plus I’ll give you the low-down on the origin of this area. Jump back into the present day. Nothing says modern Rome more than the bright and bustling Testaccio Market. This is the local’s go-to​ for fresh produce. Blend in with the shoppers and get a real insight into the day-to-day life of the area’s residents. See Testaccio’s best renovation examples. An ex-slaughterhouse is now an art gallery and old industrial buildings are now hip bars and restaurants. We will stop by one of the cool coffee bars and taste some delicious Italian coffee. Bellissimo! Let’s finish by getting our creative juices flowing. The Ostiense area is famed for street art. Italian and international artists have worked their magic on the walls, metro stations and old buildings of this gritty neighborhood. This area is definitely not to be missed.
