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.

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

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

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

Eye opening and very informative!!!! The guide was very knowledgeable

Affordable and great tour to find out about Ancient Rome and the history behind the ruins.

Very informative tour with a very knowledgeable and funny guide

Although the tour started an hour late to the annoyance of pretty everyone in the group. The guide done well to stay calm with the torrents of abuse coming his way from the american contingent. As the guide himself said it was it out of his hands and he was just as annoyed as anyone else. Once this was out of the way and then your started he done very well and kept my partner and I attentions very well. Again it must have been extremely frustrating for the guide to do his job as he was constantly trying to herd together different groups of Americans, as they pretty much decided to do their own thing. Which in turn effected everyone else's tour. But over all the tour and the content which had me gripped throughout was fantastic.

Fantastic tour and superb guide. Absolutely brilliant.

The tour was excellent. Our guide Antonella was absolutely brilliant, bringing the history of the Colosseum and Rome to life. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. It made our trip!
