On this tour I propose a walk through the Suburra district, which to me is one of the most fascinating areas of the Eternal City. I will explain the history of this unique neighborhood, from its beginnings as a dangerous center for brothels and drug-trade to its present, as a hub for art galleries, trendy restaurants and wine bars. Along the way, I will take you to some of my favorite local spots, including a wine bar, where we will try two wonderful local Italian wines. We will also share some typical appetizers, the perfect aperitivo before a night out on the town.
