EXPLORE THE ETERNAL CITY
Tours with Archeologist & Licensed Guide Livia Galante

We'll visit some fascinating and often overlooked treasures of the ancient world, led by native Roman Livia Galante, an archaeologist and passionate licensed guide. Tour groups will be small (and in English) so that we can engage with the surroundings and our expert guide!
You may sign up for any or all of the tours by registering and purchasing tickets through our website. Unfortunately, our system requires you to purchase tickets for each tour separately.

Capitoline Museums Collection
Saturday, February 25, 2:30 pm - 5:30 pm
Livia will guide us through the permanent collection of the Capitoline Museums, spread out over two Renaissance palaces on top of the Capitoline Hill. This is the oldest public collection in the world, dating back to 1471, and one of the most important! You'll understand why as Livia tells you how the museum has evolved and shows you the highlights in each gallery.
Meet at the Capitoline Museums
Tickets: free with Mic Card or €16.00 for non-residents
Baths of Diocletian and the Church of Santa Maria degli Angeli
Saturday, March 25, 2:30 pm - 5:30 pm
We will explore the complex of ancient baths and the fascinating church built on its ruins. As it's one of the largest and most impressive thermal bath constructions of the ancient world, the site can be overwhelming, but Livia will guide us through on a targeted itinerary to see the most interesting details. We'll also learn how and why a Renaissance pope wanted to turn the site into a church, commissioning none other than Michelangelo to design the transformation.
Meet at The Baths of Diocletian
Palazzo VeneziaSaturday, April 29, 2:30 pm - 5:30 pm
Palazzo Venezia is in the center of our day-to-day lives, but many of us have probably never bothered to see what's inside. Built in the 1400s as the residence for a cardinal, the building has huge historical significance: as papal residence, embassy of The Republic of Venice, and of course, headquarters of Mussolini’s party. Livia will spill the tea on a long list of fascinating characters who inhabited the Palazzo, as well as guide us through the modern-day museum collection.
Meet at Palazzo Venezia
Sunday, May 28, 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm
We'll conclude our tour series at Ostia Antica, the Roman site Livia is most passionate about and the perfect place for a spring afternoon outside the city. She will take us back in time to the “Pompeii of Lazio” and bring the everyday customs of the ancient world to life.
Meet on-site at Ostia Antica (members can join by private car or by train from Piramide) Tickets: €10
