My partner and I booked a tour through City Wonders starting at 8am on our first day on holiday. It turned out to be one of the highlights of the 4 week trip. A lot of that was due to the passion and professionalism of our tour guide, Frank van den Broeke (Google and check out his website too). Frank's... More

I am sure that the Vatican is a beautiful place when empty. However it's over commercialised with far too many tourists, making it hot and noisey. We were given headphones to help combat the noise but they weren't broadcasting on their own channels resulting in interference. The queues were massive - we'd been warned about these a had gone for... More

My guide was Eugenia from Colombia and she was great. Had a good summary of the museum and catacombs. The only down side was the extremely poor quality of the radio used to transmit our guide speaking. Missed a lot of what she said. Had a great time.

We booked them online a couple of months before our trip and had taken our vouchers with us . Our tour guide Maryam was very knowledgeable and very informative . She efficiently guided us amidst the crowds and gave... More

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful experience touring the Vatican! We had a very sweet tour guide by the name of Linda. She kept light-hearted and captivating conversation throughout the entire tour. She made sure everyone was always sticking together (as it gets mighty congested at times with multiple tours going simultaneously), and she was happy to answer any... More

We had a ticket for the hop on hop off bus and while on it they advertise that they can help book you onto other tours in the city of Rome. My friend and I decided to book the guided tour of the Vatican as we thought that for 47 euros it would be worth skipping the huge lines to... More

We went with Green Line Tours. Our guide was Max. He told goofy jokes but kept us entertained. It was crowded and there was a lot to see, but Max kept us together and kept us moving. We really enjoyed the tour and all the things from antiquity. We had the option to leave the tour at any time and... More

We booked in advance for a guided tour starting at 8.30am in the morning. It was a challenge to get the family up and ready in time but was well worth it. By the time we arrived the queue was already building outside but we strolled past straight through to security (which was happily very stringent). Our tour started on... More

Staying in Trastevere

Neighborhood Profile
Trastevere
Trastevere ("beyond the Tiber") is like a faded postcard, a little worn around the edges but still charming. With its wide-open piazzas, meandering streets, weathered Renaissance buildings, and overgrown personality, it's become an irresistible mecca for visitors. Trastevere is an enclave of entertainment - a rotating set of street performers entertains almost every night, and unforgettable eateries and bars pepper its piazzas and side streets. For a trip to the past, visit the southern and western flanks of Trastevere for pockets of yesteryear, less traversed areas with a residual 1960s and 70s Roman vibe.
