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

Very nice. Mat was very informative, good pace

booked this tour couple of days before i visited. Even though it was early in day (9:15) it worked out well as when day progresses it gets hot. Mat our guide was very good, kept everyone engaged, covered all the places within 3 hrs time (time seemed less believe me) including Pantheon (which was not on list). Worth the price as you can see many attractions within short time frame including getting familiar with history behind the attractions.

Would have liked more time in the colosseum

Overall, very good. Well organised. Easy from start to finish to book and meet up etc. Very good guide. Made it come to life for me. You could imagine how life was then. I would have preferred more time in the arena and less on palitine hill. Maybe my fault for not booking a longer tour. Would use again and recommend to anyone who wants to know some roman history. Many thanks

Fantastic tour of the Jewish ghetto in Rome!

This tour was so fascinating, our tour guide was so friendly and she explained the history behind the Jewish ghetto so well. It was lovely to walk through the streets of where it all happened and also to see certain ruins that still remain. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour and would recommend this to anyone.

Colosseum Underground Tour, isn’t worth the extra £40.00

Tour was average, the guide didn’t speak very well English and we was waiting around for 30 minutes before it started. The second tour of the Roman Forum was great, the guide was really personal and patient. I would of liked him to do the whole tour, I can’t remember his name but he was great.

Great fun, and surprisingly educational too! Thank you so much!

I had a great time, and my nine-year-old son loved it even more! Very well-run and the trainer was really enthusiastic and fun. Adults be warned - you’ll get a proper workout. But it’s well worth it!
