What You Can Expect

Ancient Rome Half-Day Walking Tour

See the sights of the Roman Forum on this exciting Rome walking tour!

After meeting your guide, your half-day Rome walking tour start by entering the Colosseum.

With your guide, explore the first and second levels of this legendary amphitheatre, learning interesting facts such as how seats were assigned according to social class. You’ll also hear about the gruesome gladiator games, the Colosseum’s main attraction that provided much entertainment to the crowd. Then follow your guide back outside to walk around the neighboring streets, where the commercial and political center of ancient Rome once stood.

Head to the Roman Forum, where you’ll check out historic ruins such as the Temple of Caesar and listen to stories about the power and backstabbing that went on during this period of Roman history. Other sites you’ll see include the Arch of Septimius Severus, the colonnaded Regia, the Gemonian stairs and the Temple of Vespasian and Titus.

From here continue to Rome’s historic center (centro storico) to see well-known attractions like the Trevi Fountain, Pantheon and Piazza Navona. Check out the square’s three fountains designed by famous baroque sculptor Bernini before your tour ends here, the perfect central location from which you can continue exploring Rome on your own.

I really enjoyed this tour it was worth it, our tour guide Maria was very informative and patient with us, she answered all our questions and made the tour a very joyful event. I did the early morning tour 09.15, I personally think doing these tours in the mornings are better because you miss the crowd, each time you move on you are a step ahead of the crowd.

Our tour guide was an archeologist so this was brilliant. They really loved telling you all the information about what we saw and where we went etc.

To be standing listening to her and then told, turn around and you will see Julius Caesar's place of burial, really brings the history of Rome to life.

Rome has a lot of history and this tour was a great way to be introduced to some of the best of it.

Well worth it!

We signed up our family of 6 and my parents for this tour, and we all LOVED it! Our guide, Joseph Giuseppe was wonderful. He was not only knowledgeable and friendly, but he was very considerate of my parents who are both in their late 70's. We really saw more than expected on the tour. We also liked that we had time to take pictures at each site and do a little exploring. It wasn't just a drive-by tour.

Francesca was fun and professional. She knew her stuff and managed us well, finding the best lines, how to get to the under used bathrooms and where we should be cautious. Very entertaining. Thank you!!
