Spend a few hours getting to know some of Rome's lesser-known sights, including historic churches, with this small-group walking tour.

Begin the tour near the ancient Roman cattle forum, Foro Boario, where you'll meet your guide. Learn about two important temples in the area – the Temple of Portunos and the Temple of Hercules, Ionic and round styles respectively.

Walk across the Palatino Bridge to see what's left of the ancient Roman Ponte Rotto (which means 'Broken Bridge'). Hear about how this bridge dates from the 2nd century A.D. Continue into the Trastevere neighborhood to see the church of Santa Cecilia. Admire the tomb of the saint as you hear about the popular legend of the church being built atop the saint's former home.

Stroll through charming Trastevere to the church of San Crisogono to see 8th-century frescoes from an earlier church on the site, unearthed during archaeological work.
