The tourguide was brilliant! Giovanna, very pationate about her job, knowledgeable, communicative. The tour was very intense to get some introduction abd then to see major points for a while. Truly recommend 3 hours with the guide. Whats most important, please add a notice that after the trip with the guide you need at least 1h to go up, rest a bit, take pictures and go down (for the people who are going for the next trip e.g. Sistine Chapel or Museum. Not much time and quite a long walk from one exit to the next entrance. Thank you for your time Giovanna!
Maybe you don't know but the visit to the basilica is free of charge, just like every other church in Italy, and to go in the dome you can buy a ticket there, which wouldn't cost you as much as the tour....but in doing that, you'll have spared somw money, but also you lose on the very important and interesting information oue guide us. She gave us a short history lesson and helped us understand what we are seeing. Loved it with the guide. Up in the dome the view ist the best, ans worth going up the stairs.
The food tour is great as you get history and food in one package. We did the morning tour starting at Campo d’Fiori, so you’ll get to taste a variety of pestos, olive oils and balsamic vinegars, then it moves on to the standard tour (pizza & beer, fried rice ball, fried artichoke, antipasti & pasta dishes with wine and a gelato). Overall we walked about 3.5km. Our guide was very nice and extremely knowledgeable. I’d recommend to skip breakfast if you go to the morning tour.
A fantastic way to explore this super interesting area and try some great tasty Roman treats in authentic cafes and bakeries. We ended up returning to the area (and one of the actual food spots on the tour) again the next day because we enjoyed it so much. Our guide was super friendly, knowledgeable and we appreciated the Italian wine tips he gave us when we saw him out later that evening!
One should be in decent physical and cardio shape to do this excursion and feel others could have benefited from knowing of this at booking. The tour overall is highly recommended and very much was a highlight of my trip. The guide was fantastic!
