Running along the Tiber River in Rome is a great way to go for a run and see the city without dealing with traffic and intersections. Several years ago, the city completed a bike path that runs nearly 7 miles from near Olympic Stadium to Ponte Guglielmo Marconi.
The trail runs through the heart of the most visited sections of the city, but below the roads. It’s a great way to do a dedicated run or to use it as a link to other sites or routes. Note that the path can get flooded fairly easily, often leaving behind a muddy mess. The northern section of the path officially starts south of Olympic Stadium but we start the run at the stadium, since it’s a thrill to see it and do a lap around the track. The southern section concludes at the Ponte Guglielmo Marconi. It is also possible to run on the eastern section of the Tiber.
