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

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

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

Clara was a very knowledgable and friendly guide.

This is a very good tour of the Vatican museums Sistine chapel and St. Peter’s basilica. It was a wonderful tour and Clara our tour guide was very knowledgeable, passionate and friendly. Would highly recommend

Eyes wide open as Salvatore provided an enlightening tour

Booked thru city wonders Salvatore provided insightful dialogue throughout the entire tour!

This is a splendid museum. A knowledgeable guide is necessary.

Our guide Carolina was very knowledgeable on the art works as well as the history of the Borghese family. Very worthwhile to have a guide for this gem of a museum.

Guide was prompt, friendly, knowledgeable, and excellent overall.

Our guide and your program was much better than any reviews that I have read. I'm regretful that I cannot remember her name but she was a Roman history major from the UK and was fantastic. It was my wife's first time in London and she was both interested and captivated throughout the tour. Additionally, at 850am it was our guide's second tour and we would have never noticed. Congrats on your hiring process - from a simple observation our guide was more qualified than most. We also used your company for the Colosseum tour and had a very similar experience. Great guides, on time, and so much faster than a do it yourself your, which honestly I couldn't even imagine doing with the crowds at each historic place.

It was a wonderful tour and our guide was amazing

The Vatican was breath taking but when you add our guide it made it a once in a life time experience.
