What You Can Expect

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

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.

We had a great time on this tour. Because of the large amount of people in the group, everyone is given a radio with ear piece. The tour guide was great but the quality of the ear piece is not that great which makes it hard to hear the tour guide.

I can't say enough good things about Rosie and her knowledge of the city. This is by far the best way to see the monuments and explore the history of Rome. Wear comfortable shoes and ladies have your shoulders and legs above the knees covered or buy and carry a shawl for the Pantheon and other religious sites.

Mauda took us to all the wonderful sights of the Medieval part of Rome. She gave us a lot of information and told us some interesting stories. We had time to take pictures. We had fun and enjoyed the gelato.

Ancient Roman history came alive in this fantastic walking tour! It is a lot of walking, but so worth it to see and learn about the life and culture of this part of Rome. Our guide was so knowledgeable and also kind and sensitive to two of the people in our group who were struggling with some of the walking. This was my first ever group walking tour and I will definitely do one again!
