Best of Rome Walking Tour: Pantheon, Piazza Navona and Trevi Fountain

Rome, Italy

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Overall, a good tour. The guide was professional, knowledgeable, and engaging. I thought the content and subjects of the tour were not meaningful enough. I would have liked to see more of the classic Rome sites, than those that we passed around the meeting point. The Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps were good, some of the lesser know buildings we passed getting to the Trevi Fountain were not too meaningful. Maybe, the tour should start at a more central point in the city.

Tuscany in One Day Sightseeing Tour from Rome

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was just an outstanding tour, one of the best I did while on vacation in Italy. The cities we visited were incredible (and incredibly beautiful), lunch was at a beautiful location at a vinyard, and was just right in terms of the amount and variety of food, and wine sampled. I initially wasn't thrilled about a 2.5 hour bus ride to our destination, but the time passed very quickly thanks to our guide who was very knowledgeable of the area, the food and wine, and other historical dimensions of Italy and the locations we were about to visit. The destinations were worth the wait. I highly recommend this tour!

This tour was really worth the time. There's really no better way to learn and appreciate the historical and cultural relevance of the sites on the tour. The tour guide was knowlwdgeable, and professional, and clearly had a real passion for the subject matter.

Papal Audience Ticket at Vatican City

Rome, Italy

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

While our guide was good, and helped us to navigate through to the Square, the tour really provided no other benefits. We sat pretty far away from the the Pope's platform, struggled to hear and understand the ceremony (might have been good for the guide to provide more context around the ceremony). While it was inspiring to be in St Peter's Square, with the Pope in attendance, the placed was mobbed, and took away from the spiritual experience of this event.
