Free Walking Tour of Rome

  • 9.30 / 10 1,588 reviews | 9,868 travellers Anna was very good, lots of explanations and even some laughter which never hurts. 10 Rosella Pulicani

The city of the Caesars, of Baroque and, of course, The Eternal City. Discover Rome with this free walking tour of the Italian capital .

The Trevi Fountain

Description

We'll meet in the central  Piazza di Spagna . We'll learn of the history of this mythical place, internationally known as the backdrop to numerous cinematic scenes, such as Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck in Roman Holiday .

Our free tour of Rome continues, visiting some of the best-known artistic sites. If Florence is the city of the Renaissance, then the Italian capital is the city of Baroque . We'll learn the characteristics of this art style alongside the Trevi Fountain , the masterwork of sculptor Nicola Salvi. It became all the more famous with its appearance in the Fellini film 'La Dolce Vita' , in which Anita Ekberg bathes in its waters.

On our guided tour of the Eternal City, we'll also get to admire the exterior of one of the best-preserved monuments from Imperial Rome:  Agrippa's Pantheon .

Having taken in some of the other highlighted monuments in the historic centre of the Italian capital, we'll culminate our free tour in Piazza Navona . Which rivers do the fountains of this square represent? Is it true that mock naval battles were celebrated here in the Imperial era? As a final flourish on our tour, we'll reveal the answer to all these questions.

  • Groups of more than 6 people are not allowed on this free tour of Rome. If you're a larger group, please reserve our  private tour  instead.
  • Minors must be accompanied by a parent.
  • Schools and groups of students are not permitted on this free tour.

Free Walking Tours in Rome

With local guides.

free walking tour em roma

Welcome to Rome, the Eternal City, a place that needs no introduction.

There are 5 types of free tours in Rome, Italy, one of ancient Rome, another of Rome's centre, the Vatican museums, and St. Peter's Basilica, one that covers the Trastevere neighborhood, as well as free food tours.

We let you know about your options, provide schedules, and explain what you will see on each tour.

We are a group of local walking tour guides who lead daily walking tours throughout Rome.

We have also written several self-guided walks as well as audio tours of the city.

And, in the video below, Matteo from Rome Free Tours, one of our local guides, takes you on a virtual walk of Piazza Navona.

OVERVIEW AND SCHEDULE

Searching Availability...

More Tour Options?  More tours are available in the individual tour sections below.

  • Ancient Rome
  • Rome City Centre
  • Rome Food Tours
  • Night + Ghost Tours

This model of free tours is that they are technically free to take and there is no obligation to pay anything at the end.

However, they are popularly understood as pay-what-you-like tours. How much you pay is dependent on you.

You can pay what you think your walk was worth or what you could afford at the tour’s end. 

According to online reviews, most participants contribute between €10 to €20 per adult to the tour guide when they feel the tour was good.

Just about all of the companies have local guides who grew up in Rome or nearby.

We also offer tours throughout Italy including:

ANCIENT ROME FREE WALKING TOURS

These free walking tours cover notable historic sites which, in some cases, date back more than two millennia. 

If you’re interested in learning why Rome is called the Eternal City, these tours will give you plenty of information about how this city became home to one of the most remarkable empires in the history of the world. 

Learn about the emperors who ruled over the Roman Empire and the gladiators who entertained the masses.

Here are a few of the ancient sites you can expect to see on these tours:

  • Roman Forum
  • Palatine Hill
  • Capitoline Hill
  • Circus Maximus

You will also see not-so-ancient sights such as Piazza Venezia and the Campidoglio.

This walk is an abridged version of our Ancient Rome audio tour. Listen to a sample of the tour.

There is no schedule (take our tours anytime you wish). We also have an audio tour of Central Rome.

  • Purchase this audio tour from our Booking Page  (scroll down to Rome).
  • You’ll receive a confirmation email with a .pdf, Google Map link, and audio tour.
  • Enjoy the tour(s).

For more information, check out our self-guided tour of the Roman Fori .

The free tours will not include admission to any of the attractions listed above and cover them from viewing platforms. 

You can purchase tickets for them either before or after your free tour.

However, the free tours cover areas not usually covered on the paid tours, including the Imperial Roman fora.

The paid tours, on the other hand, all include tickets to the Colosseum, Forum, and Palatine Hill.

Reservations are required for all tours.

New Rome Free Tour

Their team is filled with local guides from Rome, who really know the hidden gems.

Ticket prices range from €20-€80 and last for 2-4 hours on average.

Check this list of paid ancient Rome tours to find an outing that fits your itinerary.

FREE CENTRAL ROME TOURS

These free walking tours focus on the centre of Rome, such as the baroque squares and fountains and Renaissance architecture, rather than ancient Rome.

While some of the sites you’ll see are very old, this type of tour is about both helping first-time visitors become more familiar with the city and covering some of the history of Rome.

Join licensed Rome tour guide, Sara from Rome Tour Guide on a walk on and around the Spanish Steps.

If you’re looking for an introductory tour that provides a look at a wide variety of attractions and historical landmarks, central Rome tours are an excellent option.

Here are a few of the sites you can expect to see on these outings:

  • Piazza Navona
  • Bernini's 'Fountain of the Four Rivers
  • The Pantheon
  • Trevi Fountain
  • Spanish Steps
  • Venice Square
  • Campo de' Fiori

A few tours even cover Villa Borghese from the outside.

This company offers a free guided tour of the city centre which covers some of the most notable or historic architecture and the artwork you’ll find throughout Rome.

Their local guides will also point out some hidden gems and share anecdotes.

With an overall rating of 4 ½ out of 5 stars , this is one of the best-reviewed tour services in the entire city, and reviewers indicate that they also provide tips on the best places to eat!

Their 2-hour city centre tour is available daily at 17:00 (5 pm), which means you can enjoy both this outing and their Ancient Rome tour on the same day!

They also offer a Rome at Dusk Tour that has a similar route as the previously mentioned tour but starts at 20:30 (8:30 pm).

Reservations are required.   View the calendar above .

Paid Tours of Trastevere & Jewish Ghetto

There are a variety of paid services that cover the Trastevere and Jewish neighbourhoods. 

Whether you want to learn more about the area on foot, by bike, or by segway, there are several different tours to choose from.

Paid Vatican Tours

There are several paid tours for visitors who are looking for a guided tour or a different kind of experience at the Vatican. 

Some of these outings offer reserved entrance, others cover both the Vatican Museums and St. Peter’s Basilica, and there are even early morning priority access tours you may want to consider.

Ticket prices range from €20 - €60 on average.

Some tours are either private or limited in size, so if you want to be part of a small tour group, these tours may be right for you.

Look at this list of paid Vatican tours to find the right service for your needs.

If you’re planning to visit either the Vatican Museums, the Sistine Chapel, or St. Peter’s Basilica, this company offers an audio tour of each location which is available either to download or via their app.

  • Vatican Museums Tour
  • Sistine Chapel Tour

FREE ROME FOOD TOURS

Currently, there is only one company offering free food tours in Rome, and they focus on three neighbourhoods in the city: the Jewish Ghetto, Trastevere, and Monti.

Free Rome Food Tours

Each of these outings includes at least 3-4 stops at great restaurants and food shops where you’ll find some of the best dishes in the city.

The foods you will try on these tours vary quite a bit depending on which neighbourhood they cover, but most outings will cover some of the following options:

  • Parmigiano Reggiano

Although you don’t have to pay for the tour, you will have to pay for any food you might purchase along the way, and you should expect to spend around €10-€15 on average.

The nice thing is that even if you tip them another €10-€15 for the tour, you’ll still spend significantly less on this than you typically would on a paid Rome food tour.

In addition to their free walking tours, this company also provides 2-hour pay-what-you-wish food tours which allow you to pick and choose the dishes you will try.

Their Trastevere food tour is offered on both Tuesdays and Thursdays at 11 am. 

You can also take their Old Jewish Ghetto food tour on both Wednesdays and Fridays at 11 am.

Alternatively, you may also want to consider their Monti food tour on Mondays through Thursdays + Saturdays at 16:00 (4 pm). It also sometimes runs on Mondays at 11:00 am.

Paid Rome Food Tours

If you’re looking for a different kind of food tour or one that covers another area of the city, there are several paid options to choose from.

While some outings cover specific types of dishes such as street food, others provide a look at the best places to grab a bite in the city centre, Testaccio, and many other locations in Rome.

Ticket prices range from €40-€100 and some services offer small or private tour groups so that you’ll get the full attention of your guide.

Take a look at this list of paid Rome food tours to find one you like.

If you’re looking for another option, consider our self-guided Rome food tour .

ROME NIGHT AND GHOST TOURS

Rome is wonderful at all hours but Rome at dusk and by night is magical.

There are a few free night tours available most evenings as well as several ticketed tours, including tours of the Colosseum and the Vatican .

When daylight starts to fade, our passionate guides will show you the most authentic heart of Rome when it starts to emerge: the crowds thin, the locals come out and the monuments seem to exhale as they see off the last visitors and dress up in nighttime lighting.

This night tour runs daily at 20:30 (8:30 pm).

Ghost and Mystery Tours

There are usually a couple of pay-what-you-wish ghost or mystery/dark Rome tours available multiple times a week, if not daily.

We offer a daily ghost tour on weekdays @ 21:00 (9 pm). You can book this tour here .

Click here for even more options .

Discover the neighbourhood of Trastevere in Rome by following a free walking tour designed by official, local tour guides! Enjoy a pleasant stroll through the picturesque, cobblestone alleys of one of the most charming areas in Rome at a leisurely pace. Discover masterpieces of art, fountains, squares, churches and spots where locals usually go.

1. PIAZZA TRILUSSA

This free walking tour to discover the district of Trastevere in Rome starts in Piazza Trilussa . The square is named after the great Roman poet Carlo Alberto Salustri, better known with the nickname “Trilussa”, born in Rome in 1871 and died in 1950. On the left side of the square there’s a small garden with a commemorative monument, a marble statue of the poet reciting a poem.

“IN THE SHADE While reading the usual newspaper, snuggling in the shade of a haystack I see a hog, and I say: – hello, pig! – I see a donkey and I say: – hello, jackass! –

Maybe these animals won’t understand me, but at least I feel satisfied for being able to say how things are for real without the fear of landing in jail.”

With the fountain in front of you take the street on your left called Vicolo del Moro. At the end of the street, turn right and stop at the stunning “Piazza di Santa Maria in Trastevere”.

2. ST. MARY IN TRASTEVERE

The Basilica of Santa Maria in Trastevere overlooks the homonymous square, the beating heart of this neighbourhood in Rome. Dating back to 337, this is the oldest Basilica in Rome . Beside the facade stands a lovely Romanic bell tower from the 12th century. The interior of the apse is decorated with a mosaic dating back to 1143. Inside, the Church of Santa Maria in Trastevere features impressive mosaics by Pietro Cavallini.

In the middle of the square rises a beautiful fountain , work of Donato Bramante, Bernini and Carlo Fontana which has always been regarded as quite interesting due to its mysterious origins. Indeed, according to tradition, this is the oldest fountain in Rome dating back to the 8th century, but the exact date of its construction is still unknown. According to legend, on the night of the birth of Christ a fountain of oil miraculously appeared from the ground right on the spot where today stands the Church of Santa Maria in Trastevere, hence it was given the name of “Santa Maria in Fontibus”.

At sunset the Fountain of Santa Maria in Trastevere is particularly lovely.

Sit down and rest for a while on the steps as locals do. Listen to the sound of the bells ringing as the bars in the square fill up for aperitif hour.

Leave the square and the Church behind, and walk ahead down Via della Lungaretta.

3. VIA DELLA LUNGARETTA

Dive into the night life of the Eternal City! Via della Lungaretta in Trastevere will set your senses alive with its cafes, restaurants, gelato shops, cocktail bars, which all stay open until late in the evening!

Cross the big avenue called “Viale Trastevere” and continue along Via della Lungaretta until you find on your right a little street known as “Vicolo della Luce”. Walking down this cobblestone, picturesque alley you will encounter another street “Via dei Genovesi”.

At your right stands a big brown building that houses a famous chef school! Keep walking for about 5 minutes until you cross “Vicolo dell’Atleta”. You will find it on your right.

4. VICOLO DELL’ATLETA

This narrow street is named after a famous statue depicting an Athlete, found in this exact spot by chance in the 19th century. Today the statue is housed inside the Vatican Museums .

At the end of the street, on the right side stands a building, which according to several sources could have been one of the oldest Synagogues in Rome. The site is no longer used for ritual functions, and houses today several apartments and a fine restaurant.

At the end of the street, turn left and then take the first street on your right called “via Santa Cecilia”.

5. CHURCH OF SANTA CECILIA IN TRASTEVERE

The Church of St. Cecilia in Trastevere dates back to the 5th century and is especially interesting for its history which links the church to the martyr’s life. According to tradition, the church rises on the remains of Cecilia’s house.

Legend seems to have roots in history though. Indeed digging activities under the church have brought to light a group of ancient buildings and houses dating back to the Roman times when St. Cecilia lived.

Enter the church and don’t miss the sculpture located in front of the altar by Stefano Maderno, depicting St. Cecilia in the same position she was found in her tomb. Looking at the statue up-close and personal you will see that the position of the fingers of the right hand symbolize the Holy Trinity.

Exit the Church, take via Santa Cecilia once again! Walk toward the river and reach the Tiberina Island.

6. TIBERINA ISLAND

Two bridges join the Isola Tiberina or Tiberina Island to the mainland: the Cestio bridge (46 b.C.) and Ponte Fabricius, also known as Quattro Capi, because of the four headed statue at the bridge entrance on the side of the Jewish Ghetto built in 62 B.C.

At Springtime and Summertime, you may see locals sunbathing here in the afternoon, while in the evening and the little square close to the river bank is usually crowded by people heading to restaurants and cocktail bars. The Church of Saint Bartholomew stands on the ruins of the ancient Temple of Aesculapius, the Greek god of medicine, once a pilgrimage site for the diseased.

7. THE ROMAN JEWISH GHETTO & THE GREAT SYNAGOGUE OF ROME

Cross the small bridge and reach the Jewish Ghetto of Rome. Across the river you can clearly spot among the trees the beautiful facade of the Great Synagogue of Rome .

Inaugurated in 1904, today the Synagogue is home to the Jewish Museum in Rome, which houses an impressive collection of artwork and documents, all evidence of the historic importance of the Jewish community in the city of Rome, as well as the fascinating history of Roman Judaism.

Taken all together, the surrounding streets form what was known as the historical “ghetto” – which was established in the middle of the 1500’s until the 19th century – the area where all Roman Jews were forced to live.

We strongly suggest you to taste some of the Roman Jewish snacks at the patisserie shop in front of the school on via del Portico d’Ottavia. Don’t miss lip-liking hot biscotti and chocolate-ricotta tart.

Behind the area, in via del Portico d’Ottavia , rises the homonymous porticus dedicated to Emperor Augustus’s sister, Octavia, in I century a.D.

8. TEATRO DI MARCELLO

Inaugurated by Augustus around the 17 b.C., Marecellus Theatre – also known as Teatro di Marcello – was dedicated to the memory of his nephew. The original building reached 33 meters in height and could accommodate up to 15,000 spectators. Teatro Marcello was one of the biggest theatres in ancient Rome. Later in years, the building was used as a quarry to extract precious materials, folling the same destiny of other monuments in Rome.

Before leaving the site, look at the remains of the Temple of Apollo Sosiano. There are three beautiful columns standing. Other remains of this ancient temple can be admired today at the Centrale Montemartini Museum.
