Aqueducts into the Wild

2:36 PM

Excursion to Tivoli seeking for Ancient Roman Aqueducts

A day trip excursion to the surroundings of Tivoli (25 km south-west of Rome) hunting surprising ruins hidden by nature: the ancient roman aqueducts, the highest example of the Romans engineering skills. We will drive you to the countryside and walk you into the wild to bring you where no tourist has never been before. Just us, nature and those giants of brickwork and concrete which supplied with water Rome and her 1.5 million inhabitants during the Empire. And afterwards, as a prize a great lunch in Tivoli or Palestrina (depending on the weather) in a restaurant just for locals.

The area of Tivoli and Palestrina, easily reachable from Rome by car or train, is rich of travertine marble quarries and natural springs of water. It was chosen by the Emperors as the water supply area of the City. An intricate and extraordinary collection of ancient aqueducts survived the centuries covered and protected by the wild nature of the forests. Only few people know about their existence and how to reach them.

Rome Oscar Academy Bike Tour

5:00 PM

Rome is the set of most of the italianand international movie productions of Italy and is certainly one of the most scenic cities in the world. Our bike tour (about 4 hours) looks back at some of those places made famous by several milestones of the history of Cinema like: "La dolce vita", "Roman holiday", "Angels and demons", "Eat Pray Love", "Rome Open City" and many others.

During our stops, guests are shown on tablet some scenes filmed in that very place. The tour can be supplemented optionally by the guided visit to the studios of Cinecittà (lasting about two hours), now largely converted into a museum with elements drawn from large film sets.

Warm Season's Greetings from Chris the Guide!

11:47 AM

Warm Season's Greetings from Chris the Guide!
This card shows three paintings by Cola d'Amatrice (1480-1547). This very talented painter, after centuries of oblivion has been rediscovered and properly studied in the last fifty years revealing a very complex inventiveness and great technical skills as painter and architect as well. His name reveals also his city of birth, Amatrice, one of the cities dramatically damaged by the earthquakes of August and September 2016.
May his revival be an auspice of rebirth and a reminder of the tragedy that occurred
Hoping in a fast reconstruction and in a peaceful return to normal life we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy 2017
