As a fellow runner, I know the quirky needs of runners (e.g., marathon training, diet, accessories, etc.).  Then you have the needs of a traveler, like finding hotels and flights.  Combining these two factors can lead to a headache when planning your run vacation!
We take the pain out of finding the hotel, restaurants, and sightseeing options. We keep your legs rested for the marathon, but if you want to do lots of sightseeing that’s fine by us! We have dedicated staff in Italy.  For your list-makers, here’s our list of why Riveting Trips is your Rome marathon tour package provider!
