This guided 4-hour walking tour explores this ancient neighborhood, and you will have the chance to sample 10 food and wine tastings at some of the best restaurants in the region.

Another food tour that is available is the Taste of Testaccio Food Tour which features nine authentic food stops with 12 delicious tastings.

This is a similar structure and layout to the Trastevere tour but just in a different area and with different food. You will still be accompanied by a profesional guide who will tell you all the inside knowledge about the area.

Cat Sanctuary at the Roman Ruins

Cat Sanctuary at the Roman Ruins

Since the archaelogical ruins of Torre Argentina were opened up to the public they have become home to a hoard of feline squatters! The cats first started taking refuge there thanks to the abundance of shade, shelter and peace and quiet, but since the 90s it has become more of a formal cat shelter with friendly cat ladies or “gattare” looking after them. The ruins were excavated in 1929, and the area contains the remains of four Republican temples as well as Pompey's Theatre: the site at which Julius Caesar is believed to have been assassinated. Take a visit during the day and come and say hello to the cats and see the marvellous ruins.
• Via di Torre Argentina, +39 06 454 25240, romancats.com. Open daily midday-6pm. Donations welcome.

In the beautiful Villa Borghese – a delightful public park – there is a high-tech outdoor cinema which was created in 2001 as the result of an innovative project to turn a disused pavillion into an area for film lovers to marvel at the big screen.

Sometimes there is also the opportunity to meet with film makers and actors and discuss your favourite movies. The cinema pride itself on usually playing original language films, but after big film festivals such as Venice and Cannes you can expect to see some of the award winners being shown. If you are strapped for cash then you are in luck because the city council subsidises every film played and there are times of the day when free films are shown.  

Largo Marcello Mastroianni 1, Villa Borghese,  casadelcinema.it. Open daily, see website for screening times.

If you would like to come to Rome but haven´t yet found somewhere to stay then take a look at Habitat Apartments where you will find a lot of apartments for any number of people. Below featured is the cosy Ara Pacis Apartment which sleeps up to 6 people comfortably.
