About
Escape the downtown Rome crowds and head off the beaten track to discover one of the city's most infamous districts. The Esposizione Universale di Roma (better known by its acronym, EUR) was commissioned by Italian dictator Benedito Mussolini in the 1930s to showcase architecture that portrayed his fascist ideologies. Today, it is a thriving commercial suburb. On this four-hour walking tour, visit EUR's Square Colosseum, the Via dei Fori Imperial road and much more. As you explore, your guide will give insight into the historical and political significance of its buildings and monuments.

What to expect
  • Your half-day tour starts by meeting your guide and boarding a coach for the drive south of central Rome to the EUR district (Esposizione Universale di Roma). From your guide, learn about the origin of this area in the 1930s, when it was created as a city regeneration project under the direction of by Benito Mussolini, the fascist prime minister of Italy who called himself Il Duce (The Leader). Mussolini wanted to feature the district at the 1942 World’s Fair to celebrate 20 years of fascism in the country. As you walk along the wide, symmetrical streets, your guide will point out the neoclassical architecture of that era and tell you about how the project was left incomplete when the World’s Fair was canceled after the start of World War II. Listen to stories about Rome in the 1930s and Mussolini’s notorious reign, and see the Square Colosseum (Colosseo Quadrato, known officially as Palazzo della Civilta del Lavoro), the EUR’s most prominent building with its white marble façade and rows of arches. Outside the EUR, visit Foro Italico, originally known as Foro Mussolini (Mussolini Forum), a sports complex home to Stadio dei Marmi, a track surrounded by 60 marble statues. You’ll also see the Via dei Fori Imperiali, a road commissioned by Mussolini that connects the Rome Colosseum to Piazza Venezia. Your tour ends after the drive back to central Rome.

Mussolini hizo un lago y diseñó esta zona de la ciudad onde querían hacer la Exposición Universal de Roma en 1942 pero debido a la II Guerra Mundial esto no fue así y quedó inconclusa. Aún así ves grandes edificios cuadrados, con grandes ventanas cuadradas, calles amplias, ....que evocan el pasado fascista...ahora en algunos vive gente, hay oficinas, etc...No verás tanta gente como en la zona de la Roma antigua, menos turistas y más tranquilo...pero ya sabes evoca el pasado fascista de Roma.
