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.

It is SO much better to see the Collosseo at night. It is so much more dramatic to look at and for pictures. We were not interested in going inside so that was fine for us. If you want to go inside you can go back the next day to go inside. Our guide Jeannette gave us a good tour of all the important parts of downtown Rome - the Collosseo, the Four Rivers, the Pantheon, the Fontana di Trevi, the Forum - were all incredible. She told us about the background of each area - and that made it really special to look closely at them.

One of the best tours we booked! Rome is not a pretty city but this walking tour at night is less crowded, cooler then the heat of the day and the guide was very intelligent! Most guides are archaeologist, he was! Rome is beautiful at night and quiet. Take this tour you will be happy you did!
