Planning Your Visit

  • How do the free tours work?

    Free walking tours are perfect for those visiting on shoestring budgets or simply unsure how much to pay in advance. You might not be surprised to hear that they're not strictly free, however. Remember your guide does this for a living so bring some cash in order to tip them what you think it was worth at the end. Otherwise skulk away guiltily!

  • Can you do it yourself?

    Rome's city center is almost wall-to-wall with significant landmarks. There are few cities so easy to tour with just a map and there are even apps available for further guidance. For a truly enlightening experience, however, you can't beat a good guide! And with so many distractions along the bounty of sights, you'll probably find sticking to an expert itinerary to be your best bet.

Amazing service. This is the kind of company and people you wish to find when you are visiting a city for the first time. Dario and Mary made our experience even better. Even after the vaticano tour with Mrs Mary (which was absolutely perfect, Mr. Dario kept helping us through what's up.. 5 stars
