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.

Rome: Fountains and Squares Free Walking Tour Reviewed by Christie, 02/05/2016

Gets my vote for 'Best Guide in Rome'. Absolutely Fabulous.

Stefan our guide engages you from the start. We have been on alot of walking tours, but Stefan we have to say is No 1. His narrative is so informative and interesting. He injects a sense of humour and tells you points of interests only a well read Roman would know. You don't want to miss a word he says. We both said we could easily book Stefan for a whole week to show us around Rome. We saw so much and were told so much throughout the very thoughtful and well organised tour. Easily could of walked round another 2 hrs listening to Stefan. Some tour guides sound as if they are reading from a book and inject no enthusiasm or genuine interest for the subject. Stefan you can tell is trully passionate and interested in what he talks about and every question you asked him he knew the answer and didn't mind at all. Excellent and well balanced tour in every way. Please pass on our comments to Stefan always nice to receive well deserved praise and you know you are appreciated.

It was just perfect and our guide excellent!!!

The tour was excellent but i would have loved to enter the Dome and see the tombs below the church.

Full of fun facts and a great way to see the sights

This is a great way to start your time in Rome as it gets you around to see some main sights. You can then go back and look more in depth. I especially enjoyed hearing some information I'd never know on my own.
