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

  • 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.

An amazing night full of food, wine and great company. Our guide Francesca welcomed us at a local store in Prati disctrict and we started off with some ham and cheese tasting. That was just a warm up, we then had a delicious pizza, sandwiches and pasta. All with wine, beer and what not. We finished with excelent tiramisu. I have to say it was a bit too much, so do not eat anything on that day :D, but everything was so good that I do not regret extra kilograms.

Elisabeth was an excellent guide! Very knowledgeable, funny and considerate. Aside from the food (which was excellent), we also got to know a lot about Rome’s contemporary culture as well as elements of the past that shaped it. And now we know a lot about selecting the right places to eat and drink for the rest of our trip. Would highly recommend! Tip: It’s okay to skip breakfast before the 11AM tour!

We would highly recommend this 3 hour tour, which was both interesting and informative! Our Japanese tour guide, Humi was extremely knowledgeable and provided excellent information.

Everything was perfect. On our way back to Rome was a bit long. It was sunday so.. traffic war really strong. But Pompeii is amazing. And Vesuv was also really interesting.

Robert was an excellent tour guide! Very knowledgeable and engaging throughout the tour.
