Why Choose this Tour?

You probably already know that Rome is a fantastic, beautiful, and multi-layered city. But, like any major city, it can also seem a little chaotic and confusing. Particularly at first, and especially if you’re jet-lagged.

Stopping to talk on our Rome Walking Tour

A warm welcome and a cold gelato – the perfect start.

Make sure you start your trip on the right foot (literally) with our Rome walking tour. Enjoy a warm welcome and a free, refreshing gelato; get oriented; have all of your questions answered (including recommendations on where to eat and what to do); and get your first glimpse into the many layers of Rome, from ancient ruins to monumental religious buildings and Renaissance masterpieces.

See all the most famous sights of Rome – in 2.5 hours!

Hello, postcard shots! See the picturesque side of Rome from the very start at the Spanish Steps. Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck fans will recognize this as the spot where they bumped into each other in ‘A Roman Holiday’ – only the first in a number of eerily familiar sites you’ll visit throughout the tour.

The Trevi Fountain on our Rome Walking Tours

The Trevi Fountain is another, although “fountain” hardly covers it. This colossal work is the pride of Rome, which explains why its citizens were so adamant that the architect must be a Roman. We’ll pause here to toss in a coin (or three depending on your intentions – do you want to return to Rome or find your soulmate?) before enjoying a traditional Roman gelato.

The Area Sacra is a site often ignored by visitors, although you’ll never make that mistake after hearing the bloody tale of how Caesar was killed here in 44 B.C. Then it’s on to perhaps our favorite site in all of Rome – the Pantheon. A chill-inducing sight, this building is 1,900 years old and still a marvel of engineering. Visiting in the evening, we’ll find it so much more peaceful than usual, so your guide will have space to unlock its incredible secrets – including how Raphael really came to be interred here.

We’ll finish up at the stunning Piazza Navona, a testament to Rome’s status as an outdoor museum. Here you’ll find Bernini’s ‘Fountain of Four Rivers’, one of the most beautiful sculptures in all of Rome. Chat with your guide about why the Nile is pulling a hood over his head, where that obelisk came from, and why the piazza has such a strange shape. The fountain was Bernini’s way of making amends with a pope he angered – a fantastic story that your guide will be happy to tell you.

Expert tour guides on our Rome Walking Tour

5-star tours, as voted by TripAdvisor users

"This 2 1/2 hour tour was a great way to begin our brief stay officially in Rome. Joseph, a former Vatican employee and fluent in several languages, was an extremely knowledgeable and personable guide. With only 4 people in our group, Joseph was able to grant our every whim and answer all of our questions. The visit to the gelato shop was another highlight. There were over 100 flavors offered. This tour proved to be very informative, fun and the price was quite reasonable. I thank Joseph and Walks of Italy for a great experience and HIGHLY recommend this tour. Walks of Italy is a class organization."

"We loved the concept of the Twilight Tour with Amy. We arrived in Rome from the States on the day of the tour. It was great to walk around Rome that night. It was a good way to help the jet lag and was a very informative introduction to the sights of Rome."
