Key Details

  • City: Rome
  • Duration: 3hrs 30mins
  • Start Time: 8:45 AM

Tour Highlights

  • Explore those hidden sites locals reserve for visiting friends, discovering secret histories and traditions you’d never hear otherwise. We’ll take you on a whirlwind adventure through Rome and further afield for a half-day tour you won’t forget.

  • Discover an unexpected side of Rome at the Jewish Ghetto and so-called ‘Jewish Colosseum’; walk a section of the ancient Roman Appian Way; see the Aqueducts; witness the best panoramic views in Rome (including the Janiculum Hill where if you are lucky you will get to see the daily cannon fire) & much more!

  • We have a lot of land to cover, from the almost-rural Appian Way to the top of Janiculum Hill, so we’ve arranged for the most comfortable, air-con transport in Rome. We’ve kept groups small (15 or fewer) so your experience is intimate & you’ll be led by an expert local.

EXTENDED TOUR DESCRIPTION

Ancient aqueducts on the Appian Way

EXPLORE OFF-THE-BEATEN-PATH ROME, DISCOVERING ITS HIDDEN GEMS.

We start our day in a fascinating little corner of Rome usually ignored by visitors – the Jewish Ghetto. In 1555 the Pope ordered that all Jews (a community which arrived in Rome before the Christians) had to live within this walled neighborhood, where the gates were locked at night. The wall, built on the order of the Pope, was to be paid for by the Jews. And although it didn’t help to suppress regular flooding from the Tiber River, it did a fantastic job of feeding disease and poverty inside.

We’ll enjoy a walk through the Jewish Ghetto tour by foot, passing by Teatro Marcello (a.k.a. “The Jewish Colosseum”), learning about life behind the walls and the influence that the Jewish community had over the development of Rome – including the creation of some of the best regional foods.

View from Janiculum Hill

TRAVEL TO AREAS NOT USUALLY ACCESSIBLE TO INDEPENDENT TRAVELERS.

We’re covering a lot of ground so we’ve included a luxury vehicle to shuttle us with aircon for those hot summer days. After our walk through the Jewish Ghetto, we’ll make a stop at Circus Maximus to see the Ancient Roman chariot racing arena before heading outside the city to find Ancient Rome’s greatest thoroughfare – the Appian Way (a.k.a. Via Appia Antica).

This ancient road is where Spartacus and 6,000 of his followers were crucified, where war veterans lined up to pay homage to Emperor Augustus, and where St. Peter had a vision of Christ as he left Rome in 64 A.D. You’ll go for a relaxing stroll on this peaceful road (which still retains many of its original paving stones!) hearing stories like that behind the fortress-like mausoleum of Cecilia Metella, an enormous tomb built for a Roman noblewoman in the 1st century B.C.

Our next stop is the Park of the Aqueducts. You’ve heard about how the Ancient Romans invented running water, their greatest gift to modern civilization – but you haven’t seen it yet. We promise that your jaw will drop when you see just how huge and well-constructed the ancient aqueducts were, carrying millions of tons of water into Rome (and you’ll feel badly for tourists who never get to see them!) After taking a chance to walk along the aqueducts, snapping those perfect pictures, you’ll head to the overlook of an ancient site that put all that water to good use: the Baths of Caracalla. These 3rd-century baths included an Olympic-sized swimming pool and could hold more than 1,600 people at a time.

Canon fire on Janiculum Hill, included on our off the beaten path tour

EXPLORE THE SECRET SITES THAT LOCALS SHOW TO VISITING FRIENDS.

We can’t tell you all of the sights you’ll visit on our hidden gems tour because that will ruin the surprise – but we do promise to surprise you more than once during your time with us. One site we will guarantee however, is Janiculum Hill. This is where you get the best view of Rome. Enjoy this breathtaking view of the city and snap the pictures that friends back home will envy as your guide points out the Colosseum and major sights of historic Rome.

During the drive from Janiculum Hill there’s a stretch of road where, even though the dome of St. Peter’s Basilica is very far away, it looks extremely close! And stranger still, the further you drive away from it, the closer it seems – while the closer you get, the further it travels. Fun and surprising, this optical illusion is just one of those secret sites we promise will surprise and delight you.

GET AN OFF-THE-BEATEN PATH EXPERIENCE, VISITING DIFFICULT-TO-ACCESS SIGHTS.

Perhaps the most satisfying part of our tour is the peace and quiet you’ll find at so many of the sights and the knowledge that you’re traveling further and seeing more than the average visitor. These sights aren’t known to most travelers and are difficult to access by public transport – which is where we can help. On this exclusive exploration, you’ll enjoy a private vehicle with a group size of just 15 people or fewer, a driver and a separate tour guide who will bring the sights to life for you as you travel, with stories and local legends.

So if you want to see the “real Rome,” and its true off-the-beaten-path gems, in comfort and with a local insider, take a walk (or a drive) with us! We’d love to share our city with you, introducing you to Rome as a local.

5-stars from over 226 Customer Reviews

We had an excellent experience with this tour! Getting to see some sights of Rome that were out of the ordinary made our trip much more well rounded. The group size was great, our guide was knowledgable, and the overall energy was very positive and a great time.
Julia is great
Marta was very nice and a font of knowledge. Both pace and content (and driver,Paulo), were just right. We don't often take private tours, but this one was well worth it!
Walking the Appian Way was special.
I'm glad I signed up for this tour. It was such an eye opener and Andrea even made a very special experience.
Very good overall. Great guide who was friendly, informative and knowledgeable. Places visited very interesting and little known. Will definitely look to do another of your tours the next time we are in Rome.
Our guide was fantastic. He was extremely informative yet kept the tour upbeat, interesting, and funny at times. The tour route was great and we would recommend to anyone wanting to see some of the more hidden parts of Rome.
Great experience. Thanks very much!
This was a great 3.5 hr tour that lets you explore some areas that a first time visitor might not necessarily explore on their own. The highlight for me was the aqueduct park.
Andrew was informative, interesting to listen to and very inviting on our tour. We would recommend Walks of Italy for future Rome tours to family and friends. Grazie.
Really enjoyed this tour, was everything as promised.
Andrea was excellent!
Amy did an excellent job, and I like the structure of the tour because it supplements other famous attractions.
Erica was delightful. Informative and fun. We wish her well with new baby.
Excellent tour with Amy who took us through a journey of Rome's fascinating historical spots. She was pleasant, polite and well informed. 10 out of 10
Passionate guide with a small 5 person group made this tour a treat
Cecilia was ultra knowledgeable and pleasant. Wonderful information and tour of the Jewish Ghetto, Gianiculum Hill, the Appian Way and Aqueducts. It was a comfortable combination of a mini bus tour and walking.
Georgia was fantastic! Knowledgeable, friendly and energetic. I could tell she has a deep, historical. Passion and understanding of rome's history & culture. Also the driver was superb and the bus was the nicest, most comfortable touring car I have ever been touring.
Amazing! We loved this tour and the guide was just fantastic!!! :)
Georgia was an informed, passionate and highly engaging guide. She helped make the tour very memorable. We appreciated the both the content of the tour and small number of participants. Comfortable transport included. Excellent value.
We had a wonderful insightful guide who inspired us to come back to Rome in the future and explore more.
An atypical tour that held a lot of insight and adventure! Georgia was incredibly informative and able to answer all questions about all facets of ancient Roman life with accuracy and aplomb. I especially enjoyed going slightly off the beaten track and touring the Jewish Quarter and Appian Way.
Geo is a superb guide ! We enjoyed the entire tour.
Charming , enjoyable, informative, great tour to get the history of Rome on our first day. Great tips
Outstanding guide! Best guide to date. Loved the tour! Highly recommend it.
LOVED this tour! Guide was phenomenal!
Andreas was a wonderful guide, very entertaining as well as considerate of the needs of the group and made sure to point things out and make recommendations according to my interests. Brilliant tour, thank you!
Andy was an EXCELLENT guide. Very interesting information. I'm so glad I took this tour!
Camilla was phenomenal! I really appreciated all her in-depth stories and descriptions, and how well she knows and loves Rome! I felt very lucky to be in her group and see Rome from her perspective. Truly a highlight.
Wonderful! !! Camilla was a very informative and friendly guide who Made everyone feel welcome.
Absolutely loved Georgia, aka 'little Mary Beard'. She not only knows her history but she is an extremely engaging storyteller. Her passion shone through. We would definitely book a tour with Walks of Italy again.
camilla was excellent i loved her stories
Erica was great. We were in Italy for 2 weeks and this tour was the best one that we took!
This was our third time in Rome in recent years. We usually prefer to do things on our own but we we were looking to get off the beaten track and this intinary fit the bill perfectly. Great tour and great guide! We loved Georgia's enthusiasm!
Wonderful tour! And Georgia was a great guide!Thanks a lot!!!
Georgia was a wonderful guide full of energy knowledge and personality. She made both tours a wonderful experience. I hope to return to Rome someday and do more walks with her.
Enjoyed seeing the slightly less tourist areas. Got a really good feel for the Rome away from the Colosseum, Vatican etc
Andrea was fantastic, had great knowledge and involved everyone. Great guide
The tour was varied, covering a range of interesting sites at a relaxing pace. Andrea was an excellent tour guide - knowledgeable, entertaining with an obvious love of Rome. Great tour.
Enjoyed the range and variety of things seen and experienced in mostly un crowded places - and in a small group. Certainly broadened our depth of experience and knowledge. Well worh it. Our 2nd tour with Andrea who is wonderful- lots of interesting facts and info- but not overload.
Guide was funny and gave us great information. Would have be easier to hear if we had the earpieces like the day before but it wasn't a big issue. Only a couple of spots were hard to hear everything.
Andrea is just a perfect guide. Well prepared and very thoughtfull!
Gio was fantastic!
Best tour we had while in Italy.
The Rome as a Local Tour was well designed and executed. The audio equipment worked very well. Most importantly, our guide Amy was fantastic in knowledge and personality.
I really had a good time with the most a beautiful tour spacially with Amy and her explanation of the tour
The tour was great and Gio was awesome! Loved that we got to see things around Rome that you would not easily see by foot. Gio was outgoing, well informed and lovely. Thank you!
Great guide. Natural style and great knowledge.
Jos was awesome
Great tour guide and I was glad to get out of the city a little. The tour was well paced and informative. The guide was good with all the ages of the group.
I enjoy this tour. First of all, the guide Camila, is very knowledgeable and speaks graceful English. Second, the content is rich in historical sense. Third, travel in small bus is a good choice in hot summer. If you care about history, this is a tour for you.
Really nice to have a look a little outside the city confine. Guide was great. Relaxed. Informative.
could not be better!
Was our last tour of 4 that we did. Liked the change of being in a van. Some folks complained ac in bus wasn't all that but we had no issues. Loved tour and the guide
Excellent!
This was by far our best tour -- Tango was so informative and funny -- he made it come alive for us!
Gio was very knowledgable. She was also So very good with our children. We saw some amazing sights and Gio helped us greatly with appreciating the history of places.
The guide was very knowledgeable! We enjoyed the tour a great deal.
Julia gave us a great background history. We learned more than the history books. Thank you.
Tour should have been just a little longer and included one of the catacombs. This is not a complaint just a suggestion. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. We had a great time.
Well named tour! It felt as though we saw unique sites the average Roman tourist doesn't see. Andreas is an excellent guide!
Excellent guide.
Georgia was a great guide and the covered areas we never would have seen on our own. She had lots of fascinating information about Rome and its environs
Fabulous your! Georgia was very knowledgeable and had a wonderful style of imparting that knowledge. She really brought the ancient wonders alive and we certainly will take another tour when we return to Rome. We'll also recommend to friends. X
Andrea is very knowledgeable, charming and enthusiastic. The level was just right throughout. Great experience.
Andrea was terrific!!
Our guide Antonio was very knowledgeable about rome and the area's we toured with him. He brought along pictures and documents to further explain what we were seeing. An Excellent Guide.
Georgia was excellent!! She was a wealth of information about Rome and its history!! Wished we had time to take another tour with her or anyone else from your company!! Will recommend Walks of Italy to all our friends. Have posted a rave review of you on TripAdvisor.
Andrea was a fabulous tour guide! We loved him! This tour was a very pleasant surprise because we added it onto our itinerary spontaneously, not knowing what it would really be like. This tour was really wonderful! We were so happy we took it, and Andrea made a fantastic tour even better!
Andrea, our guide was personable and very knowledgeable. We loved the 'surprised' he had for us - the golf course near the aqueduct and the canon.
Very nice tour, Andrea was well informed, shared a different perspective. He was very helpful at the end, finding a cab for us in a very busy area.
This tour was such a treat and Camilla is an excellent hostess. Lots of surprises and lots of fun! And because our group was small, we asked lots of questions - Camilla answered them all with good humor and great knowledge. I wish more people knew how much fun this tour is!
Andrea was an excellent guide. The tour was a highlight of our trip to Rome.
Very knowledgable guide. Nice van and experienced driver. Would recommend to others.
Joseph was fantastic. Very informative and personable. Couldn't be more pleased.
Excellent guide!!!
Cecilia was great! Very informative, answers all these questions, engaging, and fun
Loved this tour. Esp ecially loved the walk on the old road of rome and the stop at the old cafe. Great to have a mux of walking and mninibus tour.
Loved andrea
Absolutely fantastic guide and one of the best yours we did in Italy! We actually did not make our meeting time on time, but our guide and the support staff were wonderful...we made it in time to catch the bus and the rest of the tour. Loved it so much. Could not be happier.
Guide was very thorough and knowledgeable. Fantastic tour. Appreciated driver also. Very kind and helpful. Had a fantastic day. Thank you!
Andrea showed us some really neat things about Rome. He definitely painted a pretty awesome picture of Rome taking us to sights we would never have found on our own.
Amy was terrific. She modified the tour to meet our needs and was energetic, entertaining, and knowledgeable about everything.
Really a great time. we saw things we never would have even noticed without having them pointed out to us. Our son was quite impressed with the aqueducts!
The only negative I could say was I wish we had head sets, was hard to hear him out of the bus.
Thanks for providing this tour. We got to see things that a lot of visitors do not. Great guide.
Rosa did an excellent job. She shared a great amount of information with us. A few times, I could not understand what she was saying because she was speaking so quickly. She would enhance her delivery if she could speak more slowly.
Loved this tour. Our guide was fabulous and was very knowledgeable.
This tour itself was a little gem! We had done all the big sites and sights in Rome, and this low key bundling of small, significant places of interest was enthralling. Andrea was the perfect guide--incredible knowledge, endearing manner, Italian verve, and fun when he needed to be.
This was not my first (or second, or third) trip to Rome, and I saw and heard about places I wasn't aware of while on this tour. Wonderful morning, and an excellent recommendation for lunch. Thanks!
Everything was excellent. We were on our last full day in Rome and knew we would exhausted. For us, this was perfect and definitely gave us the overview we were looking for. The right amount of walking and vehicle time. The guide was terrific and enjoys what he does.
We enjoyed our guide and the route.we are returnimg to the jewish quarter later today.I am going on the vatican tour tomorrow at 2pm. Can you let me know when it is finished.rsndy mundi
Thank you and as a family we enjoyed the tour very much
She was fantastic!
The tour was excellent. We visited places which I would never found myself. The guide was great and very informative. Please, more this kind of tours.
Excellent day.
Our group thoroughly enjoyed our morning with Amy. It was lovely to see some "out of the way" places.
Loved this tour seeing some of the different sites of Rome, our tour guide was great too.
Rosa was awesome. Not only was she extremely knowledgeable about the tour topics she answered everyone's random questions. The small group size was nice too. When I make it back to Italy I will plan on taking another tour.
A well-organised trip, which gave us a very varied and interesting end to our 5 day stay in Rome. Amy clearly loves her job and her enthusiasm is infectious!
This is by far the best company I have ever seen. Amy was great!! everything was perfect
We saw a part of Rome not in the guidebooks and received a lot of local color.
Andrea is really knowledgable, easy-going and engaging. Loved the tour with him. Excellent tour, excellent guide.
Amy was very informative and entertaining. Very nice tour which managed to pack a lot in. Thank you. Naomi Geller
I gave detailed feedback to the Welcome to Rome tour on the 12th September and everything I said there applies to this one too. All excellent!
Andrea was outstanding. Very excellent English and knowledgable about everything we saw. He has a charming sense of humor and made us all feel very comfortable. I felt we got excellent guidance with him.
This was a great tour to sights outside of the downtown area. I especially liked seeing the Aqueducts and original Appian Way. The Jewish Ghetto was also interesting. Peter was very friendly and informative about Rome.
This was one of the best tours we've ever taken in Rome and will definitely use Walks of Italy again.
This was an amazing tour. My favorite in Rome! The guide was wonderful.
Andrea is one of the brilliant natural guide . He LOVES what he does . Thanks
Amy is terrifi . Will sign up for any of her tours
Friendly, informative guide. Nice tour.
Paul was a great tour guide. My Mom and I loved how he was funny and could joke with everyone on the tour. We had a small group for this tour and it was great because we could all connect really well. We loved how he kept certain things a surprise when we were on route to them.
Wouldn't have seen any of what this tour covers as out of central rome..really interesting and the cannon firing was different!
We took several tours by different companies during our stay in Rome and this was one of the best. Peter was the best tour guide we had during all of our tours. It was excellent!
we really enjoyed the tour and thought Andrea was fantastic
the tour was great and our guide offered detailed information throughout the walk- pacing was perfect for the group and he readily answered questions asked.
Very good. Tour has changed since last time. Liked seeing the aqueducts. Did miss seeing the boca de la verdad. Overall very good.
Absolutely Fabulous morning Tour! Julia is a very warm and interesting Guide. Thank goodness for the Air Conditioned Bus as Rome temperatures were quite warm. Appian Way and Aqueduct portion of Tour were a standout !! Wonderful Tour.
Our knowledgeable guide really knew her stuff. I would recommend your tours to anyone. Good job!
This was an excellent tour that exceeded our expectations! Was so glad to see the cannon go off at noon!!
Really enjoyed seeing the aqueducts and the Jewish ghetto. The brass remembrance pavers in honor of those taken and killed in Auschwitz was moving.
Andrea was a fabulous guide. He was patient, had great andedocts and was very knowledgeable.. I chose your company as groups were small - Worth the extra cost! Once things settle down at homw, I plan to write a review on trip advisor.
Loved everything about this tour. Guide was great. Stories were interesting and helped Rome come alive for us. We saw areas off the beaten path that we would not have been able to see otherwise. Once of the most memorable tours during our three weeks in Italy.
Of the several tours we took, Peter's was the best. He is so personable and such a great communicator.
We were very pleased with the itinerary, pace, information, anecdotes. Julia did an excellent job fleshing out what we were seeing and hearing. First-rate, thanks.
We were very happy to have Joseph around. He was passionate and informative. He is very much involved in history and has told us lots of things. This is tour which we would recommend for everyone.
Excellent tour that I would recommend to others
The guide was great. Very knowledgeable, personable and great with ideas and suggestions. We went to 2 of the restaurants she suggested and they were perfect. She made the tour a perfect day.
All good.Met need to get to outlying areas without having to master public transport.Going right by Baths a short look would have been nice to add
Very good tour and excellent guide. Glad she got us to Gianicolo in time for the cannon firing!
Amy was very friendly and knowledgable. This tour covers a lot of ground and we missed the cannon firing, which was disappointing.
Guide was amazing! Excellent tour
It was good having a roman guide you on a roman tour.
This tour is very appropriately named. We had a fantastic time. Marta was very knowledgeable and we enjoyed her very much.
Very good tour.
Perfect morning tour. Van was very comfortable and a small group size made this the most enjoyable experience. Our guide was terrific. Walks of Italy is a must to enhance your vacation experience
I wrote a review for the AppianWay tour/Romes Driving Tour with Joseph on Trip Advisor. I enjoyed the tour fully. Joseph did marvelously.
Our guide Andrea was knowledgeable, enthusiastic and engaging. The tour was interesting and it was great to walk on the Appian Way. The van was modern and comfortable with a great driver. We enjoyed our tour with Andrea so much we booked another tour with Walks of Italy.

Excellent tour with Amy who took us through a journey of Rome's fascinating historical spots. She was pleasant, polite and well informed. 10 out of 10
Went on four tours with Walks Of Italy while on holiday -- two in Rome and two in Florence. This tour was our favorite, and Georgia made it great. She helped us understand how the city's history influences what we're seeing, and how the structures we're seeing influenced the history. She offered us great recommendations for places to eat and things to see both in Rome and in Florence to help us get off the beaten path, so to speak. Couldn't have asked for better!
Passionate guide with a small 5 person group made this tour a treat
Cecilia was ultra knowledgeable and pleasant. Wonderful information and tour of the Jewish Ghetto, Gianiculum Hill, the Appian Way and Aqueducts. It was a comfortable combination of a mini bus tour and walking.
Instructions to get to meeting point (separate email) stated that you could 'see' Plaza Venezia from the café. This is not the case - it is a good 100m and around the corner. To add extra value to the tour consider adding a walk through the gardens (Villa Bertoli????) before driving to the Aqueducts / Appian Way. Georgia is an excellent guide and really lively and friendly (good recall of names which personalised the tour).
Fantastic guide. I had to prompt her for why she was chosen to guide Prince Harry as she does not brag. It is clear why she was chosen as the best guide in Rome in the recent past. I am curious which organization selected her. My mother and I look forward to reading her book. Gulia (sp?) was so kind as to give us extra help over the phone with directions post-tour. This was especially appreciated as my iphone maps did not work, my translator map did not function, my practiced Italian language skills turned into "Spanalian" which was unitelligilble to the locals
We had a great tour with Amy despite the downpour, traffic jam from a protest, and exhaust coming into our bus! She handled everything calmly and had a great sense of humour. We wish her well living in Rome! The tour was fantastic, and it was great to get out of the city of Rome to have more perspective of the history. Loved seeing the Appian way and having a snack out there. Thank you!
Georgia was fantastic! Knowledgeable, friendly and energetic. I could tell she has a deep, historical. Passion and understanding of rome's history & culture. Also the driver was superb and the bus was the nicest, most comfortable touring car I have ever been touring.
Our guide was fantastic! We really enjoyed the sights and experiences of this low-key tour. I only wished that it had included a visit inside the catacombs rather that just having them pointed out to us.
Amazing! We loved this tour and the guide was just fantastic!!! :)
Georgia was an informed, passionate and highly engaging guide. She helped make the tour very memorable. We appreciated the both the content of the tour and small number of participants. Comfortable transport included. Excellent value.
We had a wonderful insightful guide who inspired us to come back to Rome in the future and explore more.
Good tour, but would have liked time to go into tomb of Caecilia Metella.

LOVED this tour! Guide was phenomenal!
Erica was just amazing. The tour was so personal. She gave us so much information about then and now. She recommended a restaurant for lunch, booked it and the driver dropped us off there. Can't get better than that. Felt like we made a friend in Rome. Just love your company and guides. Thank you!!!
Andreas was a wonderful guide, very entertaining as well as considerate of the needs of the group and made sure to point things out and make recommendations according to my interests. Brilliant tour, thank you!
Andy was an EXCELLENT guide. Very interesting information. I'm so glad I took this tour!
Camilla was phenomenal! I really appreciated all her in-depth stories and descriptions, and how well she knows and loves Rome! I felt very lucky to be in her group and see Rome from her perspective. Truly a highlight.
Wonderful! !! Camilla was a very informative and friendly guide who Made everyone feel welcome.
Absolutely loved Georgia, aka 'little Mary Beard'. She not only knows her history but she is an extremely engaging storyteller. Her passion shone through. We would definitely book a tour with Walks of Italy again.
camilla was excellent i loved her stories
Erica was great. We were in Italy for 2 weeks and this tour was the best one that we took!
Georgia deserves an increase in pay! She was punctual, intelligent and was spot on with her facts. She threw interesting snippets of information and pointed out the poignant, the over-the-top baroque,the ancient and the restorations. Plus she knew our names within seconds. She was wonderful! Please pass on our thank yous to her. Jan Bartlett &a Diana Larbalestier
This was our third time in Rome in recent years. We usually prefer to do things on our own but we we were looking to get off the beaten track and this intinary fit the bill perfectly. Great tour and great guide! We loved Georgia's enthusiasm!
