Walking Tour Highlights

Welcome to Rome, the eternal city and one of the most fascinating cities in the world! Give yourself a proper introduction to Rome with a walking tour, a relaxing way to view the highlights of the open air museum that is Central Rome.

You will be guided through the wonderful winding cobblestone streets where you will discover how Rome has been transformed throughout the centuries. Piazza Navona was redesigned in the 17th century, with Bernini’s monumental Fountain of the Four Rivers, on the site where an Imperial stadium was located in the first century. A portion of the stadium still exists underground and gives the piazza its unique shape.

One of the many highlights of this tour is the Pantheon, the only pagan temple that is left in Rome, which is still intact. The colourful marbles on the floor came from all parts of the Roman Empire and provides a real wow factor, until you look up to the dome and marvel how the Romans were able to engineer something so perfect and impressive 2000 years ago.

Of course, the tour would not be complete without a visit to the Trevi fountain one of the many icons of Rome. Be sure to toss your coin into the fountain to ensure your safe return to Rome!

Travel Tips

  • Don’t slow your group down, make sure to use a bathroom before the tour begins. Public toilets are not easy to find and most cafes require a purchase to use their facilities.
  • Always make sure to wear comfortable shoes, especially when taking a Rome walking tour. This doesn’t mean the shoes can’t be stylish but keep in mind that you will be walking on cobblestone streets, marble and uneven pavement.
  • Wear appropriate clothing. The Pantheon is now a church, so if you visit any church you will need to cover your knees and shoulders. A fashionable scarf that can cover your shoulders is the perfect accessory when walking around Rome in the summer.
  • Make sure you are charged. Nothing is worse than your phone or camera running out of battery in the middle of a tour. Bring an external charger just in case.
  • Don’t book tours back to back. Avoid the stress of rushing from one tour to the next by allowing ample time in between tours.
