Your guide will stroll you through the streets while passionately explaining Rome’s detailed history. If that didn’t reel you in already, the walking tour concludes with a Rome pasta-making class, where you’ll create and enjoy delicious Roman pasta and tiramisu. This 3.5 hour tour includes:

The Piazza Navona is the hub of Rome that cultivates a community filled with food lovers, art and stunning architecture. Your guide will walk you through the history behind the Egyptian Obelisk and the Fountain of Four Rivers, which never goes unnoticed due to its brilliant and intricate architecture. Underneath the piazza lies the Stadium of Domitian, an ancient stadium that was used for competitive games in ancient Rome. Today, the stadium is covered up by the Piazza and the markets that fill it.
The next stop on this tour is Rome’s most well-preserved Ancient landmark, the Pantheon. The construction of the building draws upon the architecture of the Ancient Greeks, as the rectangular vestibule filters into a vast rotunda. What used to be a temple for some of Rome’s priceless works of art, now, the Pantheon is considered a church. Be sure to ask your guide about the Pantheon oculus, a circular opening in the structure's dome that lets in beautiful natural light.
Located in the heart of Rome’s higher-end shopping market, the breathtaking Spanish Steps lead up to the exquisite church, Trinità dei Monti. At the bottom of all 174 steps is Fontana della Barcaccia, or “Fountain of the Longboat”, one of Rome’s beautiful fountains. If you are up to the challenge of climbing all of the Spanish Steps, the Borghese Gardens will be waiting for you at the top with some of the most incredible views of the Eternal City.
The Trevi Fountain, one of the most famous fountains on Earth, serves as another one of Rome’s cultural and social hubs. Known for its striking baroque style architecture, the fountain serves as both a famous staple in Rome as well as a source of charity. The coins thrown into the Trevi Fountain are donated to a local Catholic charity and used to benefit the homeless community in Rome. Tourists throw in coins in hopes of returning to Rome, new romance or marital bliss.
Pasta Making Class (1 hour)
Work alongside a local chef and learn the art of making authentic Italian pasta. You’ll be welcomed with a glass of prosecco at the door, and after one sip, you will be craving the delicious homemade Italian cuisine.

Short walking tour of Rome with pasta making class
We liked this walking tour. It was just enough of walking since we had already done another longer walking tour of Rome. Our guide provided explanations that we hadn't already heard on our other tour. She was very nice and welcoming. It ended at the restaurant for the pasta making class and lunch from the menu. Our pasta making leader was patient and seemed to enjoy her work. It was fun. Our lunch was delicious!
What An Experience!
Our guide Giorgio was magnificent. He was very knowledgeable and personable. Like the tour, our pasta making class and meal was over the top.
Best of Both!
I wanted to take a tour of Rome to see the best sites and also wanted to take a pasta making class - but was only in Rome for a day. This was the perfect combination of both and I was able to take the pasta I made from scratch home with me. Yum!
