Podtour of Medieval Rome0.75
Baroque Rome and the Rome of the ancient Empire
are probably better known, but the city has a wealth of early Christian
and medieval architecture. In this podtour ™we go a little way off
the beaten track to find some fine mosaics, unusual frescoes, visit a fortified
monastery, and see a unique medieval house decorated with the fragments
of classical buildings.
Many sightseeing tours focus on the big sights -
this is your chance to find some undiscovered corners of the city. We start
at the little church of Santa Pudenziana, and end up on the Aventine Hill,
fitting in a temple to Mithras and one of Rome's most peaceful cloisters
on the way.
One of our customers said "You helped me find
some sights that just aren't in the guidebooks - and that I never would
have thought were so interesting. A pagan temple under a medieval church
- that's fantastic!"
This is one of our longest podtours™ in terms
of miles walked, and there are a few hills to climb, but it's well worth
it - we end with one of the best views in the entire city.
