We will start our day with a breakfast in one of the oldest bakery located in the Jewish Ghetto tasting several pastries and cakes where the owner will explain us the recipe and their old culinary traditions.
We will walk through the quarter where we can admire some buildings and ancient monument dated back to the II sec. b.C. such as the monumental Portico d’Ottavia.
We will end up our walk to an unknown area of Rome where the origins of City took place: Forum Holitorium (vegetable market) and Forum Boarium (kettle market), located along the Tiber just downstream of the Theatre of Marcellus. Here we will discover some of the legend of the ancient Rome. The forum covered a small area and was dominated by three temples of Junes, Spes, and Juno Sospita, which were positioned close together along the triumphal route which passed through the forum. Together we will go in the underground of the church of S. Nicola in Carcere where the podiums of the temples are preserved.
About Loredana - the Doer
My name is Loredana Fauci and I am president of a local association whose main aim is to help people discover the history and hidden corners of Rome and Region of Lazio. I studied as tour operator and travel consultant in USA and archeology in Italy. My passion for archeology and the dungeons of the region brought me to join an association of speleology with which I still cooperate. Plus I love good food and I like to make my own pasta, bread and pizza!!! I literally love to cook and experiments new recipes trying to preserve the genuine taste of the ingredients!
I also organize other similar tours in other area of the city and its surroundings.
