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

The guide was very knowledgable and passionate about history

For me the most important thing about attending guided tours, is for the guide to be knowledgable and the way he/she delivers the information. The guide was so enthusiastic about what he was talking about, which made it easy to consentrate on what he was saying. I highly reccomend this tour. You will skip the hige line, which can take up to 5 hours and recieve unique knowledge about Vatican l. For me the duration of the tour was just enough. I am not a big fan of too long tours.

A fascinating look at Rome beneath the surface

This tour was one of the best I have done and certainly the most unusual. Alessandra and her colleague were very knowledgeable and entertaining. I would recommend this tour. You see and learn things that would be difficult to experience any other way.

The tour was really good! I recommend it

Alexandra, our tour guide, was extraordinary. Always aware of any group member that was staying behind. Very knowledgeable and patient. Stopping when needing along the route. She even offered to stay a little time longer after the tour in case anyone needed tips or recommendations for Rome.

Tour guide good however check in process very disorganised.

Asking us to turn up 45 mins before start of tour to only stand around with all the smokers,( employees!!) total waste of time. Tour guide very friendly and knowledgable.

Rome: Skip-The-Line Colosseum Guided Tour Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer, 01/08/2018

Claudia was gracious and managed our complicated group beautifully.

I was very impressed with how smoothly and nicely Claudia moved our group along. We started in Campo di Fiori just as the market was finishing (chaos), it was the last Sunday of the Christmas holidays, and the group had several children, including an infant and one in a stroller. Not easy! Notwithstanding, Claudia was charming and informative. We all had a good time.
