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 meeting your guide at Piazza di Spagna. 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. Walk along Piazza Colonna, a monument that takes its name from the marble Column of Marcus Aurelious. Admire Rome's Pantheon from the outside and relax in one of the top Rome wine bars, 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 guide, enjoy a glass of wine and assorted regional delicacies before continuing your Rome by night tour.

Head to Piazza Navona, where lively cafés, restaurants and nightclubs buzz alongside Baroque statues and elaborate fountains. 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.

It was the best tour in Rome! The guide was very entertaining and knowledgeable and we really had learned a lot including having fun and increasing our love for Rome. Unfortunately I remember only his first name John, but maybe it will be enough for our friends who are planning a trip to Rome.

This is must have tour. You visit real Rome at night by walking its streets. Tour Guide was very good. Aperitivo was excellent too. Only Trevi fountain was out of action, but no regrets.

Delightful!! Our guide was lovely, very knowledgeable and gracious. We went to a great little restaurant that we would never have found on our own. The plates were generous and very, very good.
