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.

Super Saver Upgrade (Morning Small-Group Ancient Rome and Colosseum Tour):
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. Explore the impressive ruins or have lunch at any of the several nearby restaurants (own expense) before meeting your guide for your Best of Rome Walking Tour in the afternoon.

Please note:
* Rome's Trevi Fountain is currently under restoration until late 2015. A walkway above the central portion of the fountain will allow you to catch a glimpse of the ongoing work. Water will be drained during the process, but you'll still be able to cast your coins into the fountain for luck.
* The Pantheon is closed on Saturday for Mass. Full explanation about the Pantheon will be given from the outside.

My daughter and I did this tour last week, and thought it was fabulous. Very well organised, and the tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable, full of facts, and could answer all questions. We did this on our first day, and it really helped us get to know the city center quickly.

We had a great guide who enjoyed what she was doing. She listened to us and because of our interests she took us to some places that were not on the standard tour. For example in the church of Santa Maria of the Well, she realized that we were Catholic and took us to the back of the church were there was a very special Nativity Scene.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2015

Unfortunately we could not see the Trevi Fountain in all it's splendor due to restoration. However, our guide was really good as he even took us to additional places that were not included in the tour providing us with much more insights of Rome.
