EXTENDED TOUR DESCRIPTION

Enjoy a gelato on our Rome walking tour

A WARM WELCOME AND A COLD GELATO – THE PERFECT START.

Your Rome Walking tour starts at the stunning Piazza Navona where you'll enjoy Bernini’s ‘Fountain of Four Rivers’, one of the most beautiful sculptures in the city. Your guide will give you the story behind the mysterious symbolism and show you some of the more interesting aspects of the plaza. Then it’s on to our favorite site in 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 its more peaceful than usual, so your guide will have space to unlock its incredible secrets – including how Raphael really came to be interred here.

Visit the Pantheon

SEE ALL THE MOST FAMOUS SIGHTS OF ROME – IN JUST 2.5 HOURS!

Next we'll take a break from the art and architecture to treat you to an all-inclusive, traditional Roman gelato - Italy's answer to ice cream whose vibrant flavors are sure to wow you.

After your gelato, your Rome walking tour takes you on to The Trevi Fountain. This colossal work is the pride of the city and it's full of old traditions. We'll teach you a few - just be ready to toss some coins.

Finally, it's time to grab a couple of postcard-perfect pictures 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’ – the perfect way to finish your introduction to the Eternal City.

A good thing too, since our guides are some of the best in the business, hand-picked for their knowledge and enthusiasm.

Luigi was brilliant. He made the tour!
Ferdinano was fantastic the tour was brilliant thank you
Our guide was fantastic and genuine. It was pouring rain and she made the best of what could have been a very crappy time. She even made a few extra stops so we got our moneys worth due to the lack of people showing up for the tour because of the rain. Overall an excellent tour.

Wonderful guide, kept it interesting and fun, and made sure group was with her at all times. Made every single person on the tour feel like they were getting special attention. Best guide we had from your company.
We thoroughly enjoyed our Twilight City Stroll & Gelato-Tasting with Antonietta who was very professional, informative/knowledgeable, engaging and fun. She gave us some useful tips and it was great to walk as a friendly group whilst taking in everything around us and the gelato was delicious. My friend and I took 4 tours with Walks of Italy and enjoyed every one of them. All of our guides were of a very high standard and each guide brought their own unique presentation of the tour they are taking - we liked that. Very often you find tours to be very structured and informative but its much nicer to have someone who is very animated and yet professional with it. Well done Antonietta and well done Walks of Italy.
Maria Grazia was a terrific guide for the tour and kept a great pace for our grandkids aged 11 and 13. thanks Maria Grazia!
Excellent tour & tour guide - very well done
This was a wonderful first evening in Rome tour. Our guide, Jowital, was excellent. She was friendly, personable and shared so much good information about the sites and recommendations. I highly recommend this evening tour and the gelato was delicious!

This was our first visit to Rome, and this tour was a fantastic introduction. Highlights included Piazza Navona, The Pantheon, Trevi Fountain and the Spanish Steps. Martina was an excellent guide and provided lots of great information along the way. Everything from historical facts about what we were seeing, to best places to eat etc... We'd certainly recommend this tour for Rome rookies!
This was a great way to get an introduction Rome.
What a great tour Jowita taught us a lot about Rome and even about traditions, customs how Italians eat. How to get great deals, what to watch out for and never mind the places we visited. She was wonderful and always had a smile!
Perfect tour for the first day in Rome. The walking tour kept us awake so we could get on the right schedule with a 6 hour time change. Our guide was knowledgeable engaging. The tour provided a great overview of the City and its history. We were so glad we started our vacation with this tour.
Thank you, Mara.

Our guide was amazing! I’ve forgotten her name, but she was polish and wore a curaçao hat! She gave us priceless information that provided us with insightful information as we started our four days in Rome. Her pace and education/commentary on the sights we visited was great. I would love to complete additional tours with your company in the future! Best wishes!

All went well. I had a toddler with me and so it went as well as could be expected and I learned a lot that I didn't know (and I've been to Rome several times!) Gianluigi was great.

Massimo was an amazing guide. Our first night in Rome was a wonderful experience. He was very knowledgeable and a lot of fun. . He made a long day of travel feel like it never happened because he kept us smiling the entire tour. The Gelato was to die for. We ended up going back to the same place a few times during our stay. Probably the best gelato I've ever had!! Walks tours are the best we've encountered during our 11 day visit and we will be sure to recommend it to all of our friends!!
