Via Giulia

Via Giulia, Rome, Italy

The basics

Running parallel to the Tiber River for about half a mile (almost 1 kilometer), Via Giulia is often featured in walking, e-bike, or Segway tours of Rome’s characteristic historic center. Those looking for thrills and chills can opt for a ghost or haunted walking tour of Rome by night that touches on mysterious and legend-laden sights on and around Via Giulia. A popular option for foodies is a market tour and cooking class in nearby Campo de’ Fiori. Highlights along the route include Michelangelo’s Arco Farnese, the adjoining Palazzo Farnese, and the 17th-century Fontana del Mascherone. Other architectural gems include Palazzo Falconieri, the baroque Santa Maria dell'Orazione Church, and Palazzo Sacchetti.

Super fun tour for teens and adults
Our guide was fantastic: knowledgable, smart, and funny. She really brought the city to life in a unique way. This tour is not for small children, but my teens loved it, as did I. It was a great way to experience Rome at night.
