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 the last of 5 days of tours and I was a little worried it would be one tour too far. I need not have worried. Francesca our guide was interesting and engaging throughout. Her knowledge was fantastic and her energy and enthusiasm infectious. The sights included were perfect and the time exactly right. Would highly recommend to everyone.
