On this guided tour you’ll take in Rome’s major attractions and get an overview of its history. Even better, you'll get an introduction to the city and an idea of what modern life is like. Try a cappuccino, learn how to use the Metro system, and more!
What to Expect
If you’re visiting Rome for the first time and looking to get a sense of the city before doing some extended exploration, this 2.5-hour Rome Highlights Tour is the perfect start.
This is a walking tour that’s not just about historical facts and art, but also about Rome today and how contemporary Romans live in their city.
If you want to know the right time to ask for a cappuccino, or how to use the Metro and the bus systems so you can get around Rome independently, your guide will provide all the help you need!
Your guide also knows the restaurants where locals eat, so you’ll be able to avoid the touristy places. If you’re looking to try fresh and authentic Roman food, you’ll be shown the right spots.
See the highlights of the city, including the Pantheon and Piazza Navona, as you get an orientation and a sense of distances in Rome.
If you’re not all that interested in detailed in-depth stories of the monuments but more in the city itself, your guide will introduce you to Rome’s different neighborhoods and show you things that newcomers often miss.
Know Before You Go
Be sure to bring something to cover your shoulders in case you enter a church.
The starting point will be at your hotel so that you’ll become familiar with what’s around you. The highlights will differ according to your hotel location. Generally the tour covers the city center of Rome: the Pantheon, Campo de Fiori, Piazza Navona, the Spanish Steps, and the Trevi Fountain, but the guide can also focus more on real life than the history of the monuments.
