Know More about this tour

Meet your guide by Castel Sant'Angelo in central Rome. Start with a quick chat about your running experience, and then set off on your tour. The pace is moderate, allowing you to listen to your guide and soak up all the sights as you go.

Follow your guide along the picturesque banks of the Tiber River, passing many of the city’s beautiful bridges. Cross over Ponte Cavour and enjoy a jog alongside the Mausoleum of Augustus and Ara Pacis, an intricately carved sacrificial altar dedicated to the Roman goddess of Peace.

Then, continue to Via di Ripetta, an ancient river port, before arriving at Piazza del Popolo, a distinctive Neoclassical square. Here, make a brief stop to catch your breath and hear stories about Christine of Sweden and Giacomo Valadier, the square’s designer, as well as Dan Brown’s Angels and Demons, in which the square was featured.

Picking the pace back up, taper off onto some of Rome’s lesser-known streets including Via Margutta, which is lined with boutique stores and is where Italian film director and scriptwriter Federico Fellini once lived.

Continue on to the Spanish Steps, an impressive set of steps that date back to the 18th century. Pause to snap a selfie with your group and to admire the Fontana della Barcaccia (Sinking Boat Fountain) before heading for the famous Trevi Fountain.

After tossing a coin into the fountain’s clear waters to ensure your return trip to the Eternal City, continue on your tour of Rome’s showstoppers. Pass by the monumental Pantheon, then weave your way through the artists’ easels and stalls at Piazza Navona. As you breeze around the square, listen to your guide talk about its history and Bernini's Fountain of the Four Rivers, the square’s impressive centerpiece.

Your running tour then concludes back at the original start point with a final jog along the river. Upgrade to include a traditional Italian breakfast in Pantheon Square.

  • AWESOME! This jog around town gave us the opportunity to see the major sites while the city was quiet. We were THE ONLY PEOPLE at Trevy Fountain and the Spanish Steps! That would never happen any later in the day! The guide was very informative and was happy to stop and take pictures whenever we wanted. He was American and therefore was very easy to communicate with. This was a jog, not a run... so don't worry if you aren't fast. You do have to be able to jog, though. Go for it! A definite highlight of our trip!

  • This is the absolute best way for a runner to see the city. Awesome!

  • If your a runner, the best way to see the city is on a guided tour. We ran about 4 miles in an hour with stops along the way, John provided great insights about Bernini and some details and humor in the works along the way. We ran as a group, there were 5 of us total, just a great time early in the morning to see the city and get a run in. The pace was good, I could go faster but im a marathoner. Bring a bottle of water if its summer time. We had about 6 stops along the way, and our tour guide gave us plenty of time to take pictures. The best part was, early morning you have the sites including the Trevi fountain pretty much to yourself.

  • Booked this for my son and he loved every minute!

  • A very knowledgeable and charming guide took as around the sites of Rome at a pace that was comfortable and a time when we were not trampled by other tourists. I learnt so much and really enjoyed it.

  • The sights were amazing, and seeing them in the early morning before the crowds descended was really nice. I wish our guide would have set his pace to match the pace of the slowest runner. We were quite spread out at times. Other than that, it was a great tour, and I highly recommend it!

  • Oh my goodness! The MOST fun I had in Rome. Perfect pace and my guide was the sweetest! I would recommend to anyone, even if you and #39;re not a great runner because you stop frequently to take in the sights. I also learned so much and the tour took me places I later shared with my friends.

  • Great tour! Bellie was a fantastic guide. Great way to see major attractions in Rome!
