Rome by Night Walking Tour

Rome by Night Walking Tour

The evening walking tour visits Rome's best known sights, including the Colosseum (exterior visit only), Capitoline Hill, Trevi Fountain, Pantheon and Piazza Navona. It also includes an overview of the Forum area, including the Imperial Forums. Several major sites are covered in a short period of time, and you'll receive enlightening insights into the city's millennia of history as you stroll.

You'll experience the romance and beauty of Rome as the sun sets and the city lights are illuminated on this special walking tour. All tour guides are native English-speakers or Roman archaeologist, hold university degrees in teaching and the humanities, and adhere to the highest standards of education.

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.

Very informative and covers pretty much most of Rome in a few hours

We did the Rome by night walking tour on our last night and I thought by then we would be revisiting everywhere we'd already been and hearing everything we'd already heard from other tours. I was very wrong! Our tour guide, Ciara, was excellent, providing not only the historical information to illuminate the sights we were seeing, but also including little things we might not have noticed by ourselves - such as marks on the walls around the city showing various flood levels prior to flood defences being put in at the river. The route was very well designed so that it didn't feel like we were walking miles between sights, and it was a great idea to finish at the Colosseum, as this is so impressive lit up at night (even partially obscured by scaffolding!)
This was the second 'by night' tour we did on our trip, the first being by bus, and I have to say the walking tour was by far the best. We may not have been able to visit as many places on foot, but we got a much better view of them, seeing things you just can't see from a tour bus.
The pace was also nicely balanced, so we didn't feel like we were being rushed everywhere and really had time to take in what we were seeing all around us, and we were in a small group (12 people) so felt as if we were really getting the personal tour. Ciara injected a lot of humour into her commentary and I really felt like I came away knowing a lot more about the city.
Highly recommended.
