Along the River Tiber: 28 Centuries of history told through the bridges and riverside monuments of Rome

Presented by Stuart Harvey

Join Betchworth Fine Arts Society for our January 2022 Lecture in Betchworth Village Memorial Hall – or join from home by zoom on Monday 17th January 2022 at 2.30pm.

Professional Rome tourist guide Stuart Harvey will take us for a journey upstream along the River Tiber as it winds through Rome from the Tiber Island to Ponte Milvio just north of the city centre. Starting with the legend of Romulus and Remus and the founding of Rome, and leading us through to the Unification of Italy and Rome’s new role as a modern capital city, the Tiber will lead us through 28 centuries of Roman history told by the historic bridges and riverside monuments. Roman Emperors, Renaissance Popes, Kings of Italy and some of the important and controversial political figures of the 19th and 20th centuries will feature along the way as we enjoy the beautiful views of “Er Biondo Tevere” … “The Blond Tiber”, as it is known in Rome.
