Running past the Spanish steps in Rome.

Travellers short on time can capture many of Rome’s picturesque hot spots with the help of a built-in photographer as part of ArcheoRunning’s new Instagram Running Tour.

Led by renaissance (wo)man Isabella Calidonna, an art historian, certified tour guide, and coach for the Italian National Olympic Committee, the tour explores all the city’s most iconic landmarks and hidden gems, from the Imperial Forum to the Mouth of Truth.

Behind the lens – and accompanied with interesting stories about the location, advice on photo hot spots, picture angles, and more – Calidonna, will snap travellers photos in front of the Eternal City’s most iconic locations for sharing with their friends, family and followers in true Instagram fashion.

Beginning first thing in the morning, the private running (or walking, if travellers prefer) tour begins at the Spanish Steps to capture the alluring view of the Fontana della Barcaccia before the city comes alive. From there participants will be guided to other locations around the city before tourists and locals alike stroll the streets on their daily schedule.

Stops on the tour include:

Trevi Fountain


Largo di Torre Argentina

Piazza Margana

Piazza Venezia

Capitol Hill

Imperial Forum


Circus Maximus

Mouth of Truth

Forum Boarium

Theatre of Marcellus

Jewish Ghetto
