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

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

Great guides in both the sections of the tour

Barbara for the Hill & Forum (2+approx)was informative, fantastic and lively with a group of 6. With the small group we covered a lot of ground and a wealth of information. Coliseum Dungeon section was new to us, and worth it. Extremely knowledgeable guide in a group of 24. Tours and guides were outstanding. Before tour make sure you have active communication available- ie phone , WhatsApp, email?. 2of the 3 couples had signed up for 4 pm over 2weeks before tour- then got 24 hours notices that tour time changed to 2 pm. This has to do with the dungeon section is very limited and time slots are difficult to get. Luckily I saw a what’s app message at 10am, being I was at sea before hand. Also do be there 25 minutes beforehand and use GPS/ google look for Nicotours white banner.

Chaos getting tickets near the arch. Running late again.

Chaos getting tickets near arch. Not girls on site fault though. Needs more organising with a different system. People getting frustrated and angry. Late again as other tour by 25 minutes. Why get everyone to turn up 25 early if you’re going to be 25 minutes late. 50 minutes wasted. First guide, a man, around forum and hill wasn’t great. Even though a small group could not hear him. Seemed to be just filling time talking about marble to much. Would but recommend this part of tour ..... I would recommend the Colosseum tour which was great and all credit to the guide, a young woman who was fantastic. Fun to be with, funny and very knowledgeable.

Transported back in time by Marcus the best guide I've ever met!

Our tour guide Marcus was a historian from Romania and this guy really knew his stuff! He magically linked the fascinating stories and facts of Ancient Rome in such an interesting and humorous way. The three hour tour of The Colosseum, Palatine Hill and Roman Forum was spellbinding. Some guides would have bombarded us with facts parrot fashion as if reading from a script but not him! Even as pensioners we feel we learnt so much from him . Things that we will remember forever because of the way we were told. The Colosseum has been top of my bucket list for years and thanks to Marcus it exceeded my expectations! Highly recommended!

Frascati is a beautiful small town, great to get away from the city.

Paola our guide and a Paola at the winery were excellent hosts. We very much enjoyed the food and seeing a small family owned vineyard. Also, we actually took an earlier train than what was recommended and had the typical breakfast, coffee and a pastry, while looking out at the country. Once we joined the group, it was nothing but fun because as expected, by the end, many of us were tipsy!

Take this tour your first or second day in Rome!!!

This was my second Trionfale Food Tour! It was just as engaging and informative as the first time we took this tour in July 2016 with Laluca. I would recommend taking this tour your first or second day in Rome so that you can apply what you learn on this tour to the remainder of your visit!!
