Get acquainted with the Eternal City on this perfect Rome walking tour as you get an inside scoop on the history and characters that made the city what it is today.
Rome can baffle even the most seasoned travellers with its beautiful chaos. This tour is all about getting you acquainted with some of the city's biggest sights, helping you find your way around, and giving you the tips, tricks, and suggestions that will prepare you for a fantastic visit.
You'll start at the world-famous Piazza Navona where Romans gather every evening to enjoy some of the city's most impressive outdoor art and its relaxed street life. You'll learn the history and lore behind Bernini's famous Fountain of the Four Rivers and the truth behind its hidden messages.
Then it's on to the Pantheon, Rome's best-preserved ancient building. As the crowds begin to thin you'll enter to explore this 1,900-year-old building. Once a temple to the ancient gods, today the Pantheon is a church and burial place for some of Italy's most important historic figures - your guide has some pretty juicy stories about their lives and deaths too.
After all this walking you deserve a break, so we'll stop for gelato before continuing to the iconic Trevi Fountain. As you throw a coin or three into the water, you'll learn the lore behind what each one means for your future.
Finally, your city stroll will end high atop the Spanish Steps, where you can grab a couple of postcard-perfect photos with a classic Roman backdrop.
In just one evening, you'll learn enough history to give your entire vacation context but that's not the only advantage of starting your trip with a local guide. Throughout your time together, they'll answer all your questions, however irrelevant, and give you tips on getting around the city, where to eat (and where not to eat), what to see and all the other things that will help you have the most authentic experience of Rome.
