EXTENDED TOUR DESCRIPTION

Enjoy a gelato on our Rome walking tour

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

We’ll start 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 fill you in on.

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.

Visit the Pantheon

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

Next we'll take a brief pause from all 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 enjoying this sweet treat it's on to The Trevi Fountain. 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 - and learn the significance of the gesture. Hint: it depends on your intentions – do you want to return to Rome or find your soulmate?

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.

An expert guide leads our Rome walking tour

BEST PIZZA? TIPPING ETIQUETTE? SMALL GROUPS MEAN YOU HAVE TIME TO REALLY QUIZ YOUR GUIDE.

Traveling in small groups of only 15 people or fewer, your historic Rome walking tour will be relaxed and intimate, your guide easy to hear and talk to. A good thing too, since our guides are some of the best in the business, hand-picked for their knowledge and enthusiasm. During your tour they’ll forget about dates and figures, focusing instead on the stories and anecdotes behind the sites you visit – because we know that its these funny (and often shocking) tales that make Rome so special, bringing monuments and fountains to life.

Our twilight stroll isn’t just about the sights though – it’s about giving you everything you need to enjoy a perfect vacation here. Throughout your tour, you’ll get all of your questions answered, from where to find great pizza to whether you should tip your cab driver. It’s your chance to mine an insider for knowledge so be sure to take full advantage!

Both Chillia (not sure of spelling?) on the Welcome to Rome tour and Cecilia on the Vatican tour were outstanding! Chillia went out of her way at the end of the tour to help us find La Campagna restaurant and was extremely articulate and passionate about Rome and it's history. Cecilia was also outstanding and extremely good at maneuvering the group through the crowds at the Vatican. She shared a wealth of information on the history of the Vatican and we felt she would also be very fun on a food and wine tour as well! We would highly recommend both guides and tours. Thank you!
What a wonderful welcome to Rome. Vanessa gave us a thoroughly informative and relaxed tour that helped us get our bearings in the city. I would highly recommend!

We did take a couple tours with another company. We definitely found your tours preferable. Your guides made the most difference. They were extremely nice and you could tell they really enjoyed what they were doing and talking about. That passion was infectious. I'll definitely try to book all my tours with your company when I return to Italy!
Had a good time.
Tanguy was a great tour guide especially as he had a hard situation to deal with with an older lady on a walker. Why was she even allowed to go!? He was very kind and catered to her needs even getting her in the Panthenon(where she left the group). At all times we never felt like he was neglecting the rest of us. Tour was informative.

Great tour and guide! Travel plans caused us to re-schedule our tour and Walks of Italy made it painless. We loved the tour and the guide was knowledgeable and interesting. You can tell he was passionate and we learned a lot.
We had a great tour, very informative and enjoyable. Thank you very much.
Matra was amazing she helped make our first night in rome perfect. Thank You
This was an absolutely amazing tour! The gelato was a great touch. It was exactly what we were looking for and our guide was awesome. She recommended a really good restaurant for after the tour and was more than just your regular guide. She told us about the history of the sites we visited but also gave us really good insight into Rome that you don't usually get during tours. She made the tour fun and it felt more personal than other tours we went on. She was also very well organised! Great job!!

Tanguy was informative, amusing and made sure we kept with him! He was also helpful in suggesting routes for people to get back to their hotels from the finish point.
The information and presentation by Marta about Rome was excellent. The size of the tour allowed for more interactions with Marta and other tour members.
Our guide Cecillia was full of interesting information & facts & made us feel very at ease with her, we don't speak Italian & she was very clear when speaking. Loved the stroll and would definitely recommend it.
