Tour Description

Hand Picked Private Tours

You decide who tours with you and your own private guide. Our Private Tours are priced for up to 2 people. If you want to bring more family or friends, you can easily increase the number of participants when you book your tour and the price will adjust automatically.

See Rome’s most famous buildings and monuments on a 2.5-hour private relaxing walking tour that’s both as interesting and educational as it is swift. Your expert English-speaking guide will share stories that will make each of these extraordinary sites come to life – from the Trevi Fountain to the Spanish Steps, Piazza Navona to the Pantheon, you’ll experience Rome’s historic center like never before.

Learn from The Best Tour Guides

Because this tour is intimate and private, you’ll be able to ask questions and focus on the sites and details that interest you most. We tailor the experience entirely to you! We begin with the most beautiful Baroque fountain in the world, the Trevi, as you learn the captivating stories behind its construction as well as the famed legend behind tossing a coin into its waters.

We then visit the centrepiece of the Piazza Navona – Bernini’s Fountain of the Four Rivers and its awe-inspiring giant statues. Hear about the fierce sculptor rivalry that ensued during its design and how the creative conflict eventually played out. As you continue on enjoying the Spanish Steps, be enthralled by tales of how they earned their name. Then marvel at the incredible architecture of the Pantheon dome, still standing in its vaulted perfection. Here your guide will loop you into the secret truth about the death of one of Rome’s most famous artists – Raphael.

Make This a Tour To Remember

Your expert, local English-only speaking guide is an expert in art and history. They know the city as only a local would, injecting as much passion into your experience as they have for their home town. In a short 2.5 hours, you’ll experience everything the center of ancient Rome has to offer – major sites made famous in countless Hollywood films and secret passages and hidden nooks other tours might miss.

Your perfect private tour experience ends with a bit of authentic Italian “dolce far niente” – translated as “the sweetness of doing nothing.” Sit and reminisce the amazement you just experienced over a coffee break including a gelato, or a hot drink, or soft drink and conversation with your guide, ask questions about history and sites you couldn’t get enough of, or simply kick your feet up and relax. This is your tour. This is your Rome. This is entirely your experience. Enjoy it!
