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.

Very knowledgable and small group was great.
LOVED OUR GUIDE!!! Tanguy was wonderful. Very knowledgable and really seemed to love his job.
Francesco was very knowledgable and passionate about his city but sometimes the information was too detailed for us. It was a good introduction to Rome for us.
We did this tour on our first day in Rome. It was a nice way to be introduced to some of the highlights of the city at a beautiful time of day. We planned it this way so we wouldn't be tempted to go to bed, and it made us even more excited for the rest of our visit! Simone was a great guide, and our first gelato experience was fabulous!
Guido was a great guide and introduced us to the highlights of central Rome.
Great tour! Excellent guide!
Mariana was funny and very knowledgeable about the sights! Totally enjoyed the tour with her. A great introduction to the beautiful piazzas and fountains of the city.

We were very tired, but of the 4 tours that we had in Rome this was our least enjoyable. Our enjoyment was hampered by the fact that both the Trevi Fountain and the Spanish Steps were closed. These factors are totally out of Walks, and the guide's control though. Our guide was very knowledgeable though.

Our tour guide did a wonderful job introducing us to so many important sights in Roma. She was accommodating to all in the group, answering questions and setting a leisurely pace so that we could take photographs. All the tour guides we encountered with Walks of Italy were gracious, proud of their city, and professional.
