We are sure this happens to everyone all the time. You find yourself in Rome - just have a couple of hours at your disposal - and are not sure whether to spend them in the gym working out or sightseeing. Well - you don’t have to make that choice anymore!
The ever resourceful Romans have come up with a whole new take on sightseeing in Rome, which I am sure will have traditionalists jumping up and down with rage. In short, the latest trend for the fitness-conscious visitors of Rome is a guided tour of Rome whilst jogging.
One of the routes claims to take you in 90 minutes and 5 miles down the Spanish Steps, through the city’s very heart and across the Tiber River, you get to Castel S. Angelo and the magnificent St.Peter’s Basilica.
“An absolutely striking route, not to be missed on your first visit to Rome.�, says the Sightjogging website.
Another route takes you in 60 minutes through 2000 years of history round the Imperial Forums and the Colosseum.
The trip is handled by multilingual trainers jogging tourists along predefined routes.
