Down the Spanish Steps, through the city’s very heart and across the Tiber River, you get to Castel S. Angelo and the magnificent St.Peter’s Basilica.
An absolutely striking route, not to be missed on your first visit to Rome.
Through the Porta Pinciana entrance to Villa Borghese, you get into an always extremely green maze of routes and to the Pincio Terrace and its breathtaking view.
On the way back through V.le della Trinità dei Monti, a following of wonderful glimpses over an ever enchanting city.
Along Via and Piazza Barberini, you get to Viale della Trinità dei Monti and to the Pincio Terrace, where you enter Villa Borghese.
A meandering route through the old Campo Marzio takes you to the extraordinary and elegant Piazza Navona. Built as a stadium by Emperor Domitian, the piazza has undergone a series of different remakings during the centuries up to the present baroque order wanted by Pope Innocenzo X.
A very interesting route which, through streets and squares full of history, in an endless show of artistic marvels, takes you to an amazing opening onto the Tiber River and its island. The Tiberina Island, as an extraordinary stone ship, sails the waters of a day-after-day different river.
A route through over 2000 years of history. Among the relics of an ancient Rome, as a unique and breathtaking background to your run. Do not miss it!
A run through the heart of Rome will take us to Trastevere, lively neighbourhood, which keeps intact its roman essence.
At night a trendy spot, during daytime it is a charming dedalus of narrow streets, riddled with old artesan shops, ancient churches and fashionable bars.
Amidst the unique views which make Rome a city to remember, Circus Maximus stands out as a powerful testimony of times gone by, surrounded by the majestic ruins of the Imperial Palaces, which set against the greenery of the arena.
Jogging up and down Rome's famous seven hills, get ready to be swept off your feet when climbing up to Michelangelo's famous Campidoglio square, suspended over the spectacular Roman Forum.
Stronghold of the Italian Risorgimento and destination of Roman fiancés of all times: the Janiculum Hill will pay all your efforts back with a most striking view. Suggested especially at daybreak and sunset.
Sightjogging, in collaboration with CSI (Italian Sport Centre) and "La Fiaccola di Lolek", and under the sponsorship of the Council Sport Committee of the City of Rome, is pleased to present the first route designed for differently abled people.
The route starts from Via della Conciliazione 1, seat of CSI, with the gorgeous St. Peter's Basilica in the background, and passes by the most picturesque sites of renaissance and baroque Rome.
One week advance for reservations is appreciated.
The last Saturday of every month a run will be offered free to how many, among the differently abled people, will demand it with at least 15 days advance.
A run along some of the most imposing monuments of the Roman Empire: from the ever-impressive Colosseum to the amazingly huge Circus Maximus and from the still mysterious Palatine Hill to the red-brick ruins of the Baths of Caracalla. You’ll finally reach the “queen of roads”, as the Latin poet Statius called the Appian Way. Lined with splendid burial monuments and patrician residences, which stand amid the evocative beauty of the land that it crosses.
A run in the park of the biggest Roman “villa”: over 450 acres of green spaces and history. From Pamphilo Pamphili, Pope Innocent X’s brother, who wanted here his suburban residence, to one of the bloodiest battles in defence of the Roman Republic fought by Napoleon III’s and Garibaldi’s troops. Historic events and gardens, shadows of the past and rural idyll alternate and chase each other in the very heart of Rome.
Definitely an unusual and not expected run, out of the common tourist itineraries. The route winds along the white geometrical structures of the EUR, a neighbourhood representative of modern Rome, amid austere and essential architectures, which in some way follow and stylize those of Imperial Rome.
Back in the XVI century Father Filippo Neri and his friends had the habit of walking together in the afternoon … this was the beginning of the Rome’s most famous pilgrimage: the Seven Churches visitation, which on February 13, 1586 Pope Sixtus V Peretti made official with the bull Egregia populi romani pietas.
The route was 16 miles long and it was initially covered in two days. The procession reached the seven major Basilicas of the City: St. Peter’s , St. Mary Major, St. John Lateran, St. Paul’s Outside the Walls, Holy Cross in Jerusalem, St. Lawrence Outside the Walls and St. Sebastian’s.
For the first time, Sightjogging offers a running version of the Seven Churches pilgrimage, in a different age contest, maybe, but of unchanged fascination.
To begin with September 20, 2008 Sightjogging offers twice a week (Saturdays and Sundays) the possibility to join in a running group.
