We are used to taking part on Free Walking tours all over Europe but unfortunatelly our experience in Rome was terrible. We took the morning tour on January 2 and the guide (a blond woman) was clearly not happy doing her job and kept complaining about visitors leaving the tour before the end and about bad tips. Wonder why... We... More

Thanks for your review and sorry for your not good experience with us. We are a group of official guides who offer these tours to welcome tourists in our city in the best way. Unfortunately during the Christmas festivities some of us were out of the city so we had to call some replacements... guides who works with us only... More

We did 2 of their tours (the Colosseum in the afternoon, and the Vatican one in the morning). These are great tours by locals who give you great background info (our guides were both trained archaeologists). Make sure you try to be close to the guide as the group can get big.

We did the Spanish tour around the centre of Rome (Spagna, Trevi, Pantheon, Navona). It was a good tour with good and interesting explanations about Rome's history, Pope's, including good food recommendations.

Going to a walking tour as a first thing after i come to a city is very important for me to get a better understand about this city. I did the same thing for Rome with two of my friends and we chose this tour for this purpose. Unfortunately we had to leave the tour after 10 minutes because of... More

I did both tours, the Vatican and colosseum tour. The morning tours are better as it gets dark early now and is harder to see things near the end of the colosseum tour. The guides knew lots of information and had stories to share with us. It was easy to find the meeting spot and no printed paper was needed... More

This was an excellent tour! We took the Spanish tour and it was Luca who gave it, an excellent tour guide very friendly and dynamic. Even if this is not your first time in Rome with this tour you will still learn new things and discover the city in a more or less 2 hour tour. It was great thank... More

This was my first time in Rome. My friend and I did the "Vatican Tour". I don't remember the tour guide's name (it was a women with a orange flag) but she was very well informed of the city. She knew the history well and did a great job of explaining everything and answering all of our questions. That being... More

We took Vatican tour and Colosseo tour and both were great. Guide gave us a lot of interesting facts about history and art of Rome. Bernini became our favorite artist:)

We met our tour guide in front of the Spanish Embassy near the Spanish Steps. Our guide, Alessandra was great. A very proud Roman who told just enough information about the landmarks and significant buildings on our way to the Vatican. The tour moved at a reasonable pace. I think it's the best way to get a high level view... More

Staying in Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori

Neighbourhood Profile
Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a five-minute walk of each other, the Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.
