Tour description

Rome is undoubtedly one of the most picturesque cities in the world to explore. Join me on an enchanting stroll through the city centre as we visit some of the major sights that you really shouldn’t miss, plus some of my off-the-beaten-track spots. My route is carefully curated and I make sure to take characteristic little back alleys that few venture down.
We meet at Via Celsa 7 close to Venice Square (Piazza Venezia), in the heart of the Eternal city.
After getting to know each other, we will move to Trajan’s Column and Piazza Venezia and I will begin to explain the ancient Imperial Forum, the unification of Italy, and the rebirth of Rome during the Renaissance. The Trevi Fountain attracts millions of visitors every year and with me, you will find out why! Admire its beauty as I give you the full story behind the fountain and we get to the bottom of the coin-throwing tradition.
The next stop will be in Piazza della Rotunda, the location of the world-famous Pantheon. Experience this most important of Rome’s pagan temples and discover its dynamic uses over 2000 years! We save the best till last: Piazza Navona, which is by far the most elaborate of Rome’s squares.
Absorb the ambiance as we get into the rivalry between the artists whose works have defined the beauty of this square.
We finish near some of the best bars and eateries in Rome!

Sharon is every professional and delivered the right amount of information and facts so that we can follow what she was saying. Tone and speed of voice is just right, clear and loud. She always makes sure that the group was together and never leaves anyone behind. We had a very good experience with her.

This was the second GuruWalk tour I took and they were both very good. Chiara was nice, professional, patient and knowledgeable. She took care of the group, had a sense of humour, knew her subject and even provided extra information about places to eat. She was also open to answering questions about the city's nightlife, where to shop and more. These tours are a good way to get a quick overview of some important sites at an affordable price.

Our guide was excellent! I forgot her name but she was from Cleveland. We had 60 people show up for the tour and she seemed a bit worried. But, it could have been just us as far as we were concerned. She waited for everyone at each stop before talking and was loud and clear. It was the best tour of our whole vacation. We highly recommend!!
