Highly recommending this tour. Great insights and great stops. Glad we passed through some small alleys that we wouldn't have discovered if we didn't join the tour. The stops will NOT include the Trevi Fountain, Colosseo, and Spanish Steps. I liked the idea of exploring...More

At first, the guide (I think is the only one. Checking the website after the tour you realize there is only Chris on pictures, probably this is his own "free walking tour") was not local. A guy from US that is living in Rome since...More

I apologize if you didn't enjoy the tour. But I have been in and out of this city for ten years and I'm most definitely not a tourist and I have a degree in Classical History. Best, Chris

Lucio was enthusiastic, engaging and personable. The kind of person you want to get a handle from a city like Rome. I have been on many free tours before in other cities but I found this to be above the usual. It helped that we...More

Great tour with Nick, who brought history to life and built the bridge from the ancient empire to modern times. Very dedicated group. Make sure to take that tour!

We'd already spent 6 days in Rome before booking an afternoon tour led by Lucio, so we weren't sure if we'd learn or see much new. Boy were we wrong! Lucio gave us great information, showed us streets and sights that we'd missed, and altogether...More

We enjoyed a tour led by Nick, he is very passionate and knowledgable in many areas, not only historical where he is a true expert. Can't add more to the reviews that were already been written, tour is really amazing.

This was probably the best walking tour I've ever attended. Rome has layers of history and Nick has layers of knowledge to share.

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
