Rome has captivated the imagination of writers and poets for centuries, which isn’t surprising when the city looks the way it does. You’ll join one of our local Rome hosts to uncover a world of romance, comedy and drama as you weave through the streets which chronicle Rome’s literary past.
Discover the corners immortalised in classic novels and step back in time to when some of the most influential writers and poets walked cobbled streets as you peek into the where they once lived.
Once your bookish appetite is satisfied, sit down for a cappuccino in Italy’s oldest cafe where Byron and Keats once sat, or explore a neighbourhood where famous writers once lived - they tended to group together, you know?
But it’s not all in the past - you’ll discover the most charming independent bookstores along the way, where you could spend hours getting lost amongst antique, leather-bound volumes or perusing the shelves in a more modern spot where you can find contemporary writings on Rome.
We’d be surprised if you don’t leave with at least one book in hand!
