About the Tours in the Public Interest: Archaeology in Rome Walk in Rome
Please note that in order to have as many people as possible able to enjoy this program, our normal walk size will be augmented to 15 participants maximum.
A great part of Rome's archaeological heritage is often found off-the-beaten path, at some distance from popular tourist itineraries. Tucked beneath churches and palaces, hidden away behind closed gates or just a few miles out of the city center, lie archaeological sites and monuments the discovery of which has greatly contributed to the world's knowledge of how people lived in antiquity and how the ancient urban fabric developed.
Once a month, between April and October, a Context docent will lead a visit to an otherwise off-limit monument or site:
