A small sprint to St peters while learning the history of Berninis colonnade? A stretch on Piazza di Spagna while learning the secrets of the Barcaccia fountain? A jog along Via dei Fori Imperiali surrounded by two thousand years of history? Sightjogging is the new fad on the streets of Rome, as trimmer tourists leave the tour bus and guide book to one side and hire a personal trainer with a twist, who not only tells you the history of Rome but also picks you up and drops you off at your hotel. We can help people discover Rome in a fun and original way, explains Carolina Gasparetto, the inventor of the new craze, although she admits they are not real tour guides. We can give a sprinkling of information at most, interesting facts and titbits of history of art, she says. These special personal trainers cost 70 per hour for an individual, 100 for a couple, or 140 for four (plus VAT). There are currently seven standard routes of around 45-60 minutes, though these can be tailored to requirements.
