What You Can Expect

Best of Rome Walking Tour: Pantheon, Piazza Navona and Trevi Fountain

See Rome Pantheon on a walking tour

Your walking tour starts at Piazza di Spagna, one of the city’s most popular squares, known for its setting at the bottom of the Spanish Steps. Walk up these famous steps to enjoy a lovely view from the top, and then continue along Rome’s winding cobblestone alleys to the Trevi Fountain.

Stop at the fountain to post for photos and throw a coin in the water, if you wish, which legend says ensures your return to Rome someday. Then continue to the square that Romans consider to be the center of the city, Piazza Colonna, home to a column erected by Marcus Aurelius. Make your way to the Pantheon, a stately temple known for its concrete dome and open oculus, before heading to Piazza Navona, one of Rome’s liveliest squares, where street artists show off their talents and visitors mingle around Bernini’s Fountain of the Four Rivers.

Please note: The Pantheon is closed on Saturdays for mass. If your tour takes place on a Saturday, you’ll listen to explanation about the Pantheon from the outside.

Optional Colosseum and Ancient Rome upgrade:
When booking, you have the option to upgrade your walking tour to include an additional tour of Rome’s ancient attractions, including the Colosseum. This is a morning tour, so it would take place first, starting with a leisurely walk up Oppian Hill for a view of the Colosseum.

Then head back down and enter the Colosseum, skipping the main entrance line with your priority-access ticket. With your guide, walk around the first and second levels of this legendary amphitheater, listening to stories about the gory gladiator battles that once took place here. Next, walk over to the Roman Forum, passing by the Arch of Constantine, and climb up Palatine Hill for more views. You’ll end on Via Sacra, a main road that links the Colosseum to Capitoline Hill. You have about two hours of free time before the Best of Rome walking tour starts so you can have lunch or take a break on your own (own expense).   

By booking these two tours together, you'll save 13% compared to booking them separately.

This tour was fantastic. Our guide was excellent and very knowledgeable. The group was small so he could take the time to answer everyone's questions. We didn't feel rushed on this tour either. I enjoyed the fact that it was an afternoon tour and since it was in November is gets dark early so we could see these amazing places all lit up at night. Highly recommend!!

Our guide was so knowledgeable. The depth of information she presented and the way she presented it was terrific. Also, having tried gelato in at least 15 different cities throughout Italy, I can say with all confidence that the gelato served in the piazza at the Pantheon was by far the best. all four of us agreed on this

Another great tour. We did the expanded version that included the Colosseum and Ancient Rome tour in the AM and the walking tour in the afternoon both were fantastic. The tour guides were both great, but the Colosseum one was extremely good ... he was a trained archaeologist who had actually participated in some of the excavations that we saw, and so was very knowledgeable. The only thing to note about these tours is that they are long and involve a LOT of walking ... but definitely worth the exhaustion.
