Tandem Paragliding

As you visit Rome you do not really need to be stuck inside the city. An afternoon or morning tandem paragliding experience is available close-by. Launching spot is Lake Bracciano, Tivoli or Rieti. There will be a guide that will help you glide for around 45 minutes over scenic countryside views.


  • Prearranged round-trip transportation available
  • Technical and safety training before paragliding
  • Guide with huge paragliding experience
  • Afternoon or morning experiences

Obviously, flying paragliders is difficult from a technical point of view. However, this is available thanks to the guide that will take you through the entire trip. Even the drive to the launch point is an attraction that allows you to see the unseen side of Rome.

Rome Running Tour

Do you love exercising? Why not combine it with sightseeing? You can jog along some of the most popular of the Rome attractions while guided by a local. The running tour takes you across highly popular tourist destinations like Spanish Steps, Piazza Navona, Trevi Fountain and the Pantheon.

What is interesting with such a Rome tour option is that you can see some locations that are less-visited, locations that you do not often see in tour packages. You would be on a small group that is normally limited to 6 people. That is so you can easily enjoy everything you visit. However, you should be a runner to consider the tour. Upgrade to the Pantheon Square Italian breakfast.
