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.

Great way to see key highlights. Fantastic guide.

The Vatican Museums are always crowded but our guide picked key highlights and created a very informative tour that enabled us to navigate the crowds with ease. She taught us art history and church history, and made the most of our time in the famous Sistine Chapel. Would highly recommend this tour.

Fantastic tour of the main historical Roman sites

David was a phenomenal guide, we were very lucky to be educated and entertained by him for this tour. Even though we were 30 in the group, he had us all enraptured in the history of what we were seeing from start to finish. Would recommend 100%!

An absolute highlight of our three weeks in Italy!

Mercedes did a superb job of showing us St. Peters in all of its glories. She was very knowledgeable, very sensitive to the interests of her audience, and managed a pace perfectly suited to her group. Highly recommended!
