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.

Best way to experience the Vatican Museums

Big thanks to our wonderful guide, it makes such a difference to experience the Museums (which are in itself stunning and a definite must-see for anyone who is interested in art) with a well educated guide that is happy and excited to share her knowledge.

Great tour with lots of information along the way!!!!

Definitely recommend this tour for seeing the colosseum. Our guide was great and she was very knowledgable. Be prepared to walk for the whole 3 hours though so wear comfy shoes. Loved it!!

Fabulous! Can't recommend highly enough.

As soon as you see the queue for the Vatican you know you made the right choice! Our guide Valeria was knowledgeable and funny! In the time available we saw the highlights: Raphaels rooms and the corridor of maps was breathtakingly. Plenty of time to gaze upwards at Michelangelo's masterpiece and back through st Peter's basilica. Even got to enter through the holy door, it being jubilee year. In the afternoon we did the colosseum tour. Not for the unsure footed. Palatine hill views were incredible and Angla our tour guide was brilliant. Definitely recommend this tour. We wouldn't have understood half of what was going on otherwise. Only downside was trying to find the initial meeting points. Even the locals struggled!
