Take a walk with us as we discover Rick Steves’ Gloryhole of Ancient Rome.
Join us for some overpriced gelato and a big sandy pit!
We began our trek to the Pantheon from Piazza Venezia. By now we had decided to walk everywhere because we had heard all the horror stories about taxi cab ripoffs in Rome.
Running tangential to the Sacred Road, Palatine Hill is notable as being the location of the first settlement established by Romulus. Guess what that settlement later came to be called?
If anybody tells you the Sacred Road is not touristy or crowded, assume they recently smoked an entire pound of crack cocaine and their perception of reality is not to be trusted.
