What you'll do

This evening tour combines visits to Rome's most famous attractions, while also taking you to hidden gems off the tourists' path.

We'll wait until the daytime crowds die down and the temperatures cool to begin this relaxing evening stroll through one of the most historic and beautiful cities in the world.

The tour begins at Trajan's Column, which is easy to find and conveniently located in the center of the city. From there, I'll explain 3 major attractions close by:
- Trajan's Market, a 1,800 year old ancient Roman shopping center
- The Alter of the Father, one of the largest monuments in Europe, celebrating the creation of the Italy
- Piazza Venezia (Venice Square), the Venetian Embassy before Venice joined Italy

Next, we'll make our way to incredible Trevi Fountain. This fountain has been a magnet for locals and visitors for over 300 years.

Our next stop will take us to the best preserved Roman temple in the world: the Pantheon. Originally built as a Roman temple 1,900 years ago, then repurposed as a Catholic Church, the Pantheon has withstood the fall of Rome, regime changes, countless wars, and gravity for over nearly two millennia. The Pantheon is a triumph of human ambition and we'll give it the time it deserves.

We'll conclude the tour in Piazza Navona, one of Rome's most beautiful squares and in prime location for post-tour pizzerias, restaurants, and wine bars.

Originally from the United States, I've been lucky enough to call Rome home for the past 11 years!

I first came to Rome to study its incredible history, but Italy's charm, excitement, and food have kept me here for over a decade.

In addition to sharing the incredible 3,000 year history of Rome during the tour, I'm equally excited to share my top picks for pizza, pasta, gelato, and all things delicious in Rome.

Along with my officially licensed, English speaking co-hosts, we'll take care of all reservations so your visit to Rome's greatest sites includes a fun and informative tour while skipping the long lines.

Don't hesitate to contact me for any help planning your trip to Italy!

Brent knew a lot about the city and could answer all our questions. Fortunately we only had a group of four, so he had more time to tell us more about the highlights. Very kind and considerate person.
