Reserve of silence and wonder

The focus of this last day's itinerary along the Tiber is Rome, the Eternal City. In the morning, continue exploring the Nazzano Tevere-Farfa Reserve to fully enjoy its natural beauty, including relaxing on eco-boats.

Alternatively, you can choose to walk the path that runs along the river, where there are birdwatching stations and piers. Silence reigns supreme here: the only sounds that accompany the visitor are the voices of the birds and that of the waters of the Tiber, which in this area meets the Farfa stream.

Also belonging to the nature reserve are the Farfa Gorges, a true paradise for trekkers and nature lovers. Lush vegetation and icy, crystal-clear water are the stars of a unique and unspoiled nature. The incessant flow of water has formed canyons and bends over the centuries , surrounded by beautiful and fragrant forests of holm oaks, hornbeams and turkey oaks.

One river, one empire

The journey continues and, still following the course of the Tiber, from Nazzano the landscape gradually begins to change, giving way to the more active life of the capital, Rome. What awaits us is an arrival to the Eternal City from a different point of view, plying the waters of the "Blond River," that river that contributed to the birth of Roman civilization and, therefore, to the development of one of the greatest empires in the history of the world.

According to legend, the history of Rome begins right here, when the basket that held the newborn babies Romulus and Remus lay on the banks of the Tiber. The river protects them until the arrival of the She-wolf, who has become the symbol of Rome, rescues and nurses them, saving them from death.

The Tiber flows just a stone's throw from many of the city's landmarks such as Piazza Navona, the Pantheon, the Vatican, Castel Sant'Angelo, Piazza del Popolo, the Circus Maximus, the Colosseum, and Via dei Fori Imperiali. Our journey ends right at the iconic Castel Sant'Angelo and its majestic bridge is our glorious finish line!
