VENI VIDI VISIT’s Rome Free Walking Tour is a pleasant walk among friends! Thanks to our expert local guides, you’ll learn, in a fun way, amazing facts about history, people and everything that made Rome so great. Starting from the ancient Chariot race stadium, we’ll visit the Aventine hill with its early-Christian churches, gardens, views and its unknown “city within a city“. Then we are off to the cattle market to meet the early Romans and how they evolved from a village to the biggest city the world has known. We will pass through the Theater of Marcellus to the Jewish district, the oldest in Europe, with its charming alleys and cobblestone streets… and there’s still much more to see! Why don’t you join us?

About the Tour

Our Trastevere Free Walking Tour guides you in the amazing neighborhood of Trastevere. Trastevere has more than 2000 years of history and a remarkable amount of unique artworks. Follow us around its narrow streets, treasures, legends, and amazing churches. First of all the walk begins in the heart of Rome in the middle of its iconic Tiber island, the smallest inhabited island in the world. Our Free Trastevere Itinerary includes amazing masterpieces like the ancient Christian Basilica of Santa Cecilia, one of the district’s most stunning treasures; then it also continues among the district’s narrow alleys where you can feel countless centuries of myths and legends.
Furthermore, Trastevere’s Free Tour will include also one of the latest artworks of Bernini:” Blessed Ludovica Albertoni” before finally taking you to Santa Maria in Trastevere, the oldest church in the world where you will admire its outstanding golden mosaic. Follow us around this labyrinth of picturesque alleys and as a result, you will discover what made Trastevere, its inhabitants, and its traditions so special and unique.
Transition from the ancient Roman religion to Christianism, roles of women during different ages, district's identitiey and traditions, will be some of the topics discussed.
The tour may include a stop for snacks or drinks at the end.

He went above and beyond with telling me all about Rome, and the local cuisine/places to go. Unfortunately, a lot of people cancelled last minute, which isn't fair for him getting tips. But I very much enjoyed a small group experience.

Alessandro was engaging, enthusiastic and what you’d look for in the perfect guide. He didn’t just know his subject, he lived it! Not your typical tour - but if you love the detail of history, this is the tour for you. Highly recommended!
