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

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.

Avoid the sub-par tourist traps on a foodie tour with a city native. Seek out the best restaurants and market stalls between sampling local faves from gelato to succulent supplì.

Jewish Ghetto

Jewish Ghetto

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

Piazza to piazza

Rome's piazzas are where the local culture blossoms into life, and they play host to many of the city's most iconic landmarks. Don't miss the Piazza della Rotonda, Piazza Navona, and Campo de' Fiori.

Roman Forum

Don't leave without visiting Rome's most revered archaeological site for an unparalleled glimpse into ancient life! It's just a short stroll to the Colosseum and Circus Maximus, too.

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.

What people are saying about Rome

Awesome tour of underground and upper levels.

After an initial delay by tour company and then being joined with a different group we got under way about 25mins late. The counter staff at top meeting point were fantastic and took us to a different meeting point for underground tours. Our guide at the coliseum Chiara was fantastic. Learnt so much, she was an archeologist and very informative. Got to see the upper sections which we weren’t expecting which was awesome. Underground def worth visiting. We had a different guide for the forum and palatine hill. More of a story teller. Potentially not the style of tour that we like. Only real negative was The different prices charged to people for same tour - we found out we’d paid quite a bit more than another Aussie couple on the tour who hadn’t Prebooked.

Frascati is a beautiful small town, great to get away from the city.

Paola our guide and a Paola at the winery were excellent hosts. We very much enjoyed the food and seeing a small family owned vineyard. Also, we actually took an earlier train than what was recommended and had the typical breakfast, coffee and a pastry, while looking out at the country. Once we joined the group, it was nothing but fun because as expected, by the end, many of us were tipsy!

Would definitely recommend to avoid crowds

We loved this tour! It was in 2 parts, the first part shows you things outside the Colosseum, like the Roman Forum, and the second part was the Colosseum. Both guides were great and really informative. The only thing I didn’t think through was that the pictures I took weren't great since it was dark out. However, I would do it again to avoid the normal crowds during the day.

Great experience, Max was an awesome tour guide!

Easy to figure out, train was simple, upon arrival Max met us at the landing and brought us through a unique tour of the town with lots of laughs and info. Food/vineyard/WINE were all great. There are a decent amount of steps/hills/walking so if you’re out of shape just prepare for this as we saw some that struggled. Would definitely recommend!

Great exhibits but a lack of information in English on what they were

Well organised entry. Slots limited to 2 hours, ensures the venue never gets overcrowded. Not a tour, but audio available and some (well worn) laminated sheets also available for some items. Fantastic exhibits, Just felt a bit lost sometimes on what we were looking at! Good cafe and bookshop.
