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

Definitely Get Your Guide. Brilliant Tour!

Emmanuelle was a superb guide. It is really worth getting a guide. There can be lots of people milling round. There is lots to see and you will not make the most of it without somebody to show and tell all the amazing history.

Our guide had an emergency and had to leave

Walked throughout the museum with other people and enjoyed the beauty of the rooms

Loved Christina!! She had so much personality and gave so much insight

Christina was wonderful! She gave all the deep details and happily answered all questions. Her personality really brought all the stories to life! My boyfriend and I were on a two week trip around Europe and took numerous guided tours. We both agreed this one was hands down the best.

Contracting this tour to Grayline was great!

Monica was an amazing guide! She is very knowledgeable about the sites & their history. She gave great tips and shared stories I hadn't heard before...and this was my 3rd guided tour of the archeological sites.

Amazing guide and tour. Terrible directions to meeting point.

Mariza with CityWonders was an amazing, very knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide! Her heart was fully committed to providing the best tour. We were a group of 10. Great quality headsets and the perfect walking tour of Rome. Highly recommend the company but try not to book through GetYourGuide as the meeting point directions was wrong and we ran back and forth 3km (with a 6 month old baby) making us 25 min late for the tour. Departure was at 3:30 and we were to be 15 min early. We would have been there at 3pm would the meeting location be correct on GetYourGuide. Luckily we were able to get through to citywonders help line and they called the guide for us to ask her to wait. We were also not the only onse that got lost. And 6 more people that were to come along didn’t make it at all. P.s. the free gelato was not a joke!
