Few know that there is a charming way to visit Rome and its museums: the streetcar Number 19 from Piazza Risorgimento.
This tram starts along the Vatican walls and touches some of the most beautiful neighborhoods of Rome, especially in the first part of its route when it goes through the elegant Parioli district.
Clanging and clattering through the northern district of the city, it reaches the Etruscan Museum of Villa Giulia and the Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna (GNAM), passing into the greenery of the Borghese Park.
You will also catch a glimpse of Villa Torlonia, once residence of the extravagant Prince Torlonia, inhabitant of the Casina delle Civette (House of Owls), and later the fascist dictator, Benito Mussolini.
Further along the line, the tram will be filling up with students, as it passes in front of the first University of Rome, “La Sapienza”, in the San Lorenzo district, finally arriving at Porta Maggiore, where eight of the eleven ancient Roman aqueducts meet over the big, ancient gate.
Don't miss a snack or an ice cream at the Café of the GNAM and a stroll through the Borghese Park.
You can have a pizza at 'Limonaia', the lemon garden of Villa Torlonia, if you get hungry along the way.
If you are a fan of chocolate, visit Said in San Lorenzo.
