The route of the Rome Marathon 2023

As it does every year, the route of the Rome Marathon promises true beauty. It begins and ends in Via dei Fori Imperiali, with a course of 42.195 kilometres that will allow participants to explore some of the most picturesque places and most important monuments of the Eternal City. So keep your eyes wide open, and look up to the sky to watch the Frecce Tricolori display a few minutes before the start. For the first time in an Italian marathon, they will paint the world's longest tricolour in the sky over Rome.

START/3 KM. Ready, set, go! Leaving the Fori Imperiali, we immediately encounter the majestic Altare della Patria and the Insula Ara Coeli, at the foot of the famous staircase, before passing by the Campidoglio and the Teatro Marcello, the only ancient theatre still preserved in the entire capital. Through Via dei Cerchi, the marathon runners arrive at the vast Circus Maximus before reaching, at the third kilometre, the exotic Pyramid of Cestius, incorporated in the Aurelian Walls.

LUNGOTEVERE 4/15 KM. The route runs along the banks of the river Tiber, passing from the Lungotevere Aventine, where, according to legend, Romulus and Remus were picked up by the waters, to the Lungotevere de' Cenci, between the Isola Tiberina and the Campidoglio, ending with the Lungotevere dei Tebaldi, one of the most beautiful promenades in Rome.

KM 16/HALF MARATHON. At kilometre 16, the marathon runners cross Via della Conciliazione until they reach the Colonnade and St Peter's Basilica, which never ceases to enchant with its majestic beauty. At Ponte Cavour, between Campo Marzio and Rione Prati, they arrive at the half-marathon finish line.

KM 21/30. The second half of the route passes places that were part of the Olympic Village: Piazzale dell'Acqua Acetosa, Via dei Campi Sportivi and Viale dell'Agonistica.

KM 30/42. It is impossible not to feel a thrill of emotion as you run along the city's most famous street. After crossing Via del Corso, the route continues to Piazza del Popolo, with its distinctive twin churches, then on to Piazza di Spagna and Piazza Navona, the capital's ‘parlour'.

FINISH LINE. The route reaches Largo di Torre Argentina, to then return to Via dei Fori Imperiali and cross the finish line at the foot of the symbol of Rome par excellence, the magnificent Colosseum.
