Only a day before flying, I decided to make the most of this layover. As soon as we landed in Rome,instead of just sitting at the airport, we approached... More

Unfortunately our guide tour Angalika who took us for 4pm tour from Spanish steps was not good. She didn't give any historical stories to relate to the places. Didn't go to most of the places nearby. The audio devices was in some other direction, mic was not proper, unable to hear her. I did so any walk tour in different... More

My recent visit to Rome made whole things different what I heard and saw in books... it is really worth going inside but more going into live history better hire a guide to tell you each and every gates of coliseum. 35 euros for a guide.

They offer two tours, both starting at the Piazza Spagna. One in the morning ending at the Vatican and the other in thr afternoon ending at the Coliseum. We took both of them, and we had great time. They have everything what you can expect from a Walking Tour. Lucas was a great tour guide. He offer the tour in... More

We were led by a professional tour guide who gave us quite an education about Roman history and sites, including a lot about its architecture and artists, with a lot of laugh lines. As a professional, though, he was also firm about keeping us moving and adhering to the rules.

The guide Stefan was very knowledgeable and showed us the area which was good for an overview of where to go on the following days. Not so sure about the restaurant he recommended it was okay but not great.

My sister and I took two free tours with Colin, one to the Colosseum and one of the downtown core. We knew very little going in, but we learned a tonne of interesting facts on the tour. We were lucky to be the only people on the tour both times so we were able to ask as many questions as... More

Went on this tour off the back of another free tour at Palatine Hill. Guide was a lad called Colin; I gather from chatting to him that this venture has changed hands recently, so the bulk of the negative reviews on here (relating to no-shows and superficiality) should be disregarded. The tour met outside McDonald's near the Spanish Steps and... More

Staying in Campo Marzio

Neighborhood Profile
Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most desirable neighborhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to look fabulous in gorgeous piazzas like San Lorenzo in Lucina. Campo Marzio can be a bit of a sleeper after aperitivi hour (9pm), so visit by day and experience the pulse of daytime Rome.
