In between visits to the favourites in Rome, such as the Vatican and the Colosseum, consider some of these alternative and unusual tours of Rome. Here are my top five most enjoyable alternative tours of Rome.

You will visit the most important sites such as the Forum, the Palatine Hill, the Circus Maximus as well as the Colosseum. You will also be introduced to some of the lesser known treasures.

Play Golf in Rome

Make your choice from a great selection of Golf Courses that surround Rome. From the Archi di Claudio which is surrounded by ancient Roman aqueducts, to the Fioranello, one of the oldest courses with views of St Peter’s Dome, to the Castelgandolfo which hosted the Roma masters in 1993 and many other courses you can choose the club where you want to spend your day. You will be picked up from your hotel and brought home again at the end of the day, so all you need worry about is your game.

This tour will give you an insight into ancient Roman culture and architecture. You will also be astounded by the excellent condition of this Roman road, which was inaugurated in 312BC by Appius Claudius. This road, the first major road to the South of Italy is surrounded by many monuments. Stops along the way include the Baths of Caracalla, the Arch or Drusus, the Porta Sebastian and the Catacombs of San Castillo, not forgetting the Mausoleum of Cecilia Metella and the Villa dei Quintili.

Italian Football: Reserve AS Roma Tickets

For the football fans:  see AS Roma in their home stadium! Be prepared for an unforgettable show of Italian football at its best. It’s even possible to grab hold of some premium seats if you order early. Enjoy a tour of the stadium before the game, then sit or stand or jump up and down when you get caught up in the excitement of this amazing game.

Discover Italian Culture: Private walking tour in Rome
