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.

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

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

Marco was superb, entertaining and inspiring, under crowded condition.

Easter week in Rome is always going to be difficult, and on top of that, I am partly deaf, and had jet lag. Marco overcame my tiredness, and patiently got us through the crowds (enormous), so we still had a entertaining and educational trip. Of course a better microphone for the guide, and prior warning to bring your own earphones for the deaf, could have made an excellent experience even better, but the rating still has to be 4.75 stars, thanks to Marco.

Exceptional, learnt heaps about the colosseum and it's surroundings

Would highly recommend Nicholai from CityWonders. He was just amazing. He knew what was the main bits to cover and what would keep everyone's attention. Worth every penny for a tour with him. We got lucky, and had a group of just 6. Took some notes during tour, will sure be reading up on the amazing history. Loved his flip book of how things used to be vs now. Was hard with a pram was hard but so worthwhile.

This tour was wonderful! I recommend it as a go to if you’re in Rome.

My tour guide Barbara was great. Super knowledgeable, passionate and really funny. She made sure that there were plenty of bathroom breaks (and in non busy places), she checked in with everyone to ensure that everyone was having a good time. She kept our group together and was patient with stragglers. Thanks Barbara!!!

Organisation at start needs work but guide excellent

The guide around the colosseum was excellent even saw him later that night near the Trevi Fountain and he remembered my sons name at the start outside not great not well organised sent a very small young lady to the area to meet us and there where Hundreds of ppl about and she had the smallest sign on the back of a clip board that needs improvement also too many in tour some ppl just paid when they got there hadn’t booked was about 25-30 of us too many for the price I paid but I could hear everything he said

excellent way to get to know the neighborhood

Covers a LOT of ground for 3 hours. Be aware, there are no bathroom breaks during the tour & many establishments have no bathrooms for customers.
