Cross a bridge from 62 BCE to reach Isola Tiberina, a tiny boat-shaped island which sits in the Tiber River as the river passes through Rome. See the old hospital on the island, which has been associated with healing since the building of the 3rd century BCE temple of Aesculapius, the Greek god of medicine and healing. Rest a while on one of the benches on the small island before heading back into the city.

  • To get to the Tiber island we skirted the Coliseum, then moved in front of Circus Maximus then moved in front of the mouth of truth and doing a little walk along the Tiber. Tiber island was formed probably prior 510 b.c. and billions of feet and voices have crossed his land. Already particularly striking to look at, the island houses the Temple of Asclepius, God of medicine, whose symbol is a snake which still represents this area. For this, the fatebenefratelli hospital is located on Tiber island. Other sights not to be missed are the Church of San Bartolomeo (at whose side lies the Israelite hospital), the Temple of Faunus and, if you find yourselves in the area during the summer, you can't surely miss living room cinema international. Finally, in this magical place Roman, there is the historic restaurant of the mythical Sora Lella (ElenaFabrizi), Cook and actress who has left an indelible mark in the history of Italian cinema.
