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

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.

Eat well

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

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.

Amazing experience, don’t miss this opportunity

Our guide was fantastic, so informative. We walked at a pace where I didn’t feel rushed nor did we dawdle and felt bored.

Vatican City: Skip-the-Line Early Access Tour Reviewed by a GetYourGuide customer, 10/02/2019

Excellent tour of ancient Rome and popular sites!

Was a wonderful tour of the Colusseum, Roman Forum, and then walk to Trevi Fountain and Piazza Navona. I had three chidlren, 7, 11, 13, and they all enjoyed it. Were given free time to wander and take photos, due to the time of year. Were given excellent information, our guide was great and easy to understand! Was a fantastic way of seeing most of ancient Rome!

Excelllent first tour of Rome. Perfect!!

Emma was fantastic! Easy to understand, fun to listen to, great for our entire family! She had such great information, a fun attitude, and was great to listen to. The tour took us to all the great places on our first night there and helped reassure me that walking in Rome would be the best way to get around to see all the sights. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone going to Rome!
