Rome: Street Food Tour with Local Guide
- Duration: 2.5 hours
You can't turn a corner in Rome - the Eternal City - without coming face-to-face with its extraordinary history. Why not make the most of it with an expert leading the way on a walking tour? Here's just a taster of the options.
Book a tour of the Vatican Museums for deeper insights into Michelangelo's famous ceiling, as well as stunning frescoes by the likes of Botticelli and Perugino, Raphael's teacher.
Avoid the sub-par tourist traps on a foodie tour with a city native. Seek out the best restaurants and market stalls between sampling local faves from gelato to succulent supplì.
Once the worst corner of the city, today Rome's Jewish Ghetto boasts superb restaurants and gorgeous landmarks, including two grand synagogues, the Jewish Museum, and the ancient Teatro Marcello.
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!
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.

we've visited the site together with our 12 years old son and we were absolutely impressed by the amount of details and interested information we've got from the guides. Our son was captivated by the interesting stories told by our guides. They were very knowledgeable and well prepared to deliver not only historical accurate information but stories about the ancient world, their habits and living style. We really enjoyed out tour.
Amazing experience and fantastic tour company. The tour was absolutely amazing and the tour guide was so great, really informative but also a lot of fun. The company was great at ensuring that everyone was safe and socially distanced whilst still having fun. Everything was contactless and we felt very secure. I would highly recommend this tour.
I did the tour with my son (10 years) on a Sunday morning and we had a perfect last day in Rome. Our guide was very friendly and professionnal regarding the anecdotes of the history of the Via Appia. Some small parts are a bit more tricky to ride because of the car traffic. Overall I recommand the tour to everyone who can ride a bike.
This was slightly different to usual times given Covid-19, but it was pretty much a private tour. Had an in-depth, enjoyable and insightful tour. Had time to take amazing scenic pictures
Absolutely wonderful our guide did her best to keep our kids engaged. She answered all of our 13 year olds questions. We can’t wait to come back to Rome
