I attended both tours one in the morning (towards the Vatican), the other in the afternoon of the same day (towards the colosseum). A great way to see the city, with staff who are interested in telling you as much as possible about the city, and willing to answer questions as you go about places to eat/see, giving hints/tips about...

As it was unclear to me at which time the tour would take place on holidays, I politely asked through an e-mail. As first e-mail I got a standard that contradicted the information on the homepage, so I asked again. They didn't answer my question, instead just complained very rudely I wouldn't read the text properly, in a very rude... More

We apologize if we seemed unpolite and unfriendly but we answered 4 times (you always asked the same thing) giving you the information about holidays timing and sending you the screen shot of the website to show you that the information were the same on the email and on the website. We were not rude but if you think we... More

We joined both free tour with Luca and definitely it was worth it. I have done free tours in many cities in Europe and Luca is one of the best guides ever, liked it a lot. Always willing to answer any doubt, thanks a lot.

We are very sorry for the inconvenience but probably you went for a tour with another company (sometimes people write the reviews in the wrong page... there are other free tours in Rome ) or you went for the tour in the WRONG day. We DON'T have ANY tour on SUNDAY AFTERNOON. We start every day at the timing indicated... More

This tour takes you through Rome while unfolding the different layers of history that this amazing city hides beneath magnificence. The tour guide was passionate about his job and encouraged you to ask questions about the tour. The tour lasts for about 3 hours with a gellato break in between. The tour guide specially emphasizes on the parts of town... More

We booked ourselves onto the free walking tour (you defo need to book, don't just turn up) and had Flaminia as our guide. She was brilliant, a local with a lot of knowledge both historical and cultural. What made it great was that she was also funny! We learnt loads about Rome and local life and it wasn't too rushed...

I took part in both of the tours on separate days and I learnt a lot from both tours. Both of my guides were full of enthusiasm and really went out of their way to make sure we had a good time, I preferred the Colosseum tour out of the two because ancient Rome facinates me and it finishes at...

I took the Vatican tour with Federica in english. She was beyond great because you can tell she really knows and loves her city, certainly proud and passionate of being Roman and realistic and objective as an Italian. Super funny, beautiful, always smiling and sarcastic, the tour was full of good historic info mixed with contemporary and daily italian data... More

I had read some good reviews so my expectations were high but I think we were unlucky with our draw of the guide. Alessandra was pleasant but it felt more like a friend showing us around rather than an informed guide. We left the Spanish Steps and I knew all about which fashion brands had sponsored the cleaning of the... More

Staying in Campo Marzio

Neighbourhood Profile
Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most desirable neighbourhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to look fabulous in gorgeous piazzas like San Lorenzo in Lucina. Campo Marzio can be a bit of a sleeper after aperitivi hour (21:00), so visit by day and experience the pulse of daytime Rome.
