What You Can Expect

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

The Best of Rome Afternoon Walking Tour

Set off from Piazza di Spagna, and then proceed to the Spanish Steps, with their lively atmosphere and stunning views down into the winding alleys of the heart of the historic center. Next you will encounter one of Rome's most dramatic monuments, the beautiful Trevi Fountain.

Your stroll through Rome continues with a stop at Piazza Colonna, which contains the column erected by Marcus Aurelius and is considered by Romans to be the very center of the city. Stop at the Pantheon, with its impressive concrete dome and open oculus, which never fails to impress. Nearby you will explore Piazza Navona, with Bernini's famous "Fountain of the Four Rivers" triumphantly marking its center.

Finally, Campo de' Fiori gives you a taste of one of the liveliest and famous traditional Roman piazzas.

Keen to see more and have the morning free? Why not upgrade and include a 3-hour Colosseum and Ancient Rome small-group walking tour in the morning? By booking the two tours in this way, you'll save 13% compared to booking two tours separately. Start your day with a gentle stroll up Oppian Hill to enjoy unforgettable views of the Colosseum -- Ancient Rome's most iconic landmark. After heading back down, skip the long entrance lines of the Colosseum and enjoy priority access to explore this famous attraction with your expert guide. As you walk around the fascinating ground and first floors, hear stories from your guide about the amphitheater's intriguingly brutal past filled with bloodthirsty gladiators.

After leaving the Colosseum, head into Ancient Rome to see the Arch of Constantine before walking through the Roman Forum and up Palatine Hill. Your tour ends on Via Sacra, the main street that links the Colosseum to Capitoline Hill. Enjoy roughly two hours at your leisure.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2014

Excellent tour. We opted for the 15:30 time slot which was really busy, so I might recommend going for an earlier time slot if available or if you want to try and get pictures without people in every shot.

We chose this tour on our second day in Rome (first was at Vatican) mostly to get a feel for the city and figure our way around. We felt it was money well spent. The roads and paths to get from piazza to piazza are not always the most direct and having some certainty that we were heading to all the right places was comforting.

We actually attempted to go back to the Trevi fountain from the metro station at Barbarini, but partially thanks to some bad directions at the local hotel and tourist map, we spent an extra 45 minutes trying to refind it on our own :(

The piazzas were really nice and the guide brings attention to some of the stories and rivalries between early Italian sculptors and artists and the little jabs they put towards one another in their pieces and it makes you wonder if the "everyday" wandering tourist gets these kinds of insights.

All of Rome seems to have interesting history; every fountain and many of the buildings, but of course none of the information is written like a museum piece, so without a guide I have no idea how you would pick up on it.

Overall, I would recommend an earlier tour if you would like to get some good pictures, but think that the tour was very worthwhile. Some of my favorite pieces (the statue of the four rivers for instance) came from this tour.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2014

Very nice tour, especially because our guide really hit the sweet spot with respect to the amount of information she gave about each of the sights. She described the history and art without dwelling overly much on details (an issue we faced on some of our other tours). Be aware that this tour ends a pretty good distance away from where it starts, and involves a reasonable amount of walking as is.
