Top Five Things To Do On A Rome Walking Tour

You can't turn a corner in Rome - the Eternal City - without coming face-to-face with its extraordinary history. Why not make the most of it with an expert leading the way on a walking tour? Here's just a taster of the options.

  • Sistine Chapel

    1. Sistine Chapel

    Book a tour of the Vatican Museums for deeper insights into Michelangelo's famous ceiling, as well as stunning frescoes by the likes of Botticelli and Perugino, Raphael's teacher.

    Once the worst corner of the city, today Rome's Jewish Ghetto boasts superb restaurants and gorgeous landmarks, including two grand synagogues, the Jewish Museum, and the ancient Teatro Marcello.

  • Piazza to piazza

    4. Piazza to piazza

Planning Your Visit

  • How do the free tours work?

    Free walking tours are perfect for those visiting on shoestring budgets or simply unsure how much to pay in advance. You might not be surprised to hear that they're not strictly free, however. Remember your guide does this for a living so bring some cash in order to tip them what you think it was worth at the end. Otherwise skulk away guiltily!

  • Can you do it yourself?

    Rome's city center is almost wall-to-wall with significant landmarks. There are few cities so easy to tour with just a map and there are even apps available for further guidance. For a truly enlightening experience, however, you can't beat a good guide! And with so many distractions along the bounty of sights, you'll probably find sticking to an expert itinerary to be your best bet.

We loved this tour! It was quite fantastic! Our guide was one of our favorite parts of the entire tour. Maximus is hilarious! We had some chatty folks on our tour. Some know it all’s and our guide handled it very professionally. He was incredibly well informed and ready to help with any recommendations that we wanted. The tour itself is quite fascinating. Definitely can’t miss it while you’re in Rome! The underground’s are new to tourism. So do yourself a favor and go on this tour while you’re in town!!

Our guide Maya was amazing, she explained everything perfectly and with a lot of detail and it was lovely to see the passion she brings on the visit! Thank you for the perfect tour!! I am pregnant with seven months and Maya was always caring to know if I was doing ok, thank you!

What a Great Tour. Couldn't have asked anymore from our Tour Guide. She was so informative and spent so much time explaining everything in the Roman Forum, Palatine Hill and the Colosseum. She really is a credit to Get Your Guide. Would highly recommend booking

Mega amazing guide, we got a really in-depth account of the Colloseum, the Romans and the ruins of Rome. This trip can definitely be recommended.
