What You Can Expect

Illuminated Rome Night Tour with Aperitivo

Rome Pantheon at night

Know the phrase ‘When in Rome, do as the Romans do?’ Well, do just that on this Rome night tour, where you’ll start your evening relaxing in a top Roman wine bar, enjoying an aperitivo alongside the locals. This much-loved Italian tradition entails sitting down for an evening drink accompanied by Italian appetizers -- cured meats, olives, breads or cheeses. With your friendly guide, enjoy a glass of wine and assorted regional delicacies before heading out to tour Rome by night.

Setting off on a leisurely 1.5-hour walking tour, your guide will point out top Rome attractions as you walk around the historic city center. See the Spanish Steps illuminated into a golden haze and admire the Trevi Fountain -- the city's largest -- in the relative calm of the evening hours. Admire Rome's Pantheon from the outside, and pass through popular Piazza Navona, where lively cafés, restaurants and nightclubs buzz alongside Baroque statues and elaborate fountains.

Continue to the River Tiber to board an air-conditioned coach for the next leg of your evening sightseeing experience. Relax in your comfortable seat and head past the towering fortress of Castel Sant'Angelo to see it lavishly lit up, creating silhouettes of the statues that frame its entrance. Stop to stretch your legs on Janiculum Hill, and be rewarded with panoramic nighttime views over Ancient Rome.

Back on your coach, pass Piazza Venezia before seeing the impressive yet lesser-known Trajan's Column. Your final stop is outside the Colosseum, everyone's must-see Rome site that seems even more dramatic by night than by day. Feel the looming amphitheater come to life with tales of gladiatorial glory from your guide. Your tour finishes here, leaving you to set off independently into the night.

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.

This walking tour was the best! Sev, our tour guide, is an archaeologist. He has been working in Italy for the past 10 years. Our tour was about 3.5 hours long, with a toilet/food break, we also toured around the city on a bus. Wear comfortable shoes. This is a must to do!

Fantastic wonderful guide an American in Rome who was funny and very enlightening. Really enjoyed the tour well worth while and showed Rome at Night in a different light. The only down side was the small meal in the resturant...... not good at all dissapointing should just give a drink as it would still have been worthwhile.
