What You Can Expect

Rome by Night Walking Tour

Explore Rome's top attractions by night on your walking tour

Meet your guide in Rome’s Piazza Navona in the early evening then, with the daylight fading and the city lights flickering on, set off on foot to begin your tour. Widely considered one of the world’s most beautiful cities, Rome is home to a wealth of amazing history and heritage with new revelations around every corner.

Head first to the Pantheon, initially commissioned by Marcus Agrippa during the reign of Augustus (between 27 BC and 14 AD) then rebuilt by the emperor Hadrian in around 126 AD. Admire the nearby Trevi Fountain, an icon of Rome considered by many to be one of the city’s most impressive treasures.

Continue on to Capitoline Hill with your guide and explore the famous Roman Forum area, where the ruins of many Ancient Roman government buildings still stand. It was here, during the days of the Roman Empire, that public events such as criminal trials, market days and political rallies took place on a daily basis. Wander the Forum with your guide, and gain insight into the thousands of years of ancient history held within its decaying walls.

Conclude your tour at the world-famous Colosseum, dramatically illuminated against the dark night sky. Once capable of holding an estimated 80,000 spectators, this masterpiece of Roman engineering has been used over the millennia for events as varied as public executions, gladiatorial bouts, religious ceremonies and theatrical re-enactments of Classical mythology. Take a tour of the spectacular amphitheater’s imposing exterior and listen as your guide talks in detail of its fascinating history.

After three hours exploring Italy’s ancient capital, your tour concludes beneath the towering arches of the ancient Colosseum.

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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2014

Felix did an excellent job showing us Rome at night. He was interesting and entertaining (and being cute didn't hurt either!). I had seen all the sights he showed us during the day but had wanted the night view and it didn't disappoint. There was something magical about it. The tour was easy to book online from my hotel and Felix as at the meeting place in a timely manner. I'd recommend it - and book with you again.
