On this Rome walking tour, capture the best sites in Rome with your local guide.  As you stroll through the charming streets of the Eternal City, you’ll begin to recognize some of the most famous attractions in Rome, such as the Spanish Steps, Pantheon and Trevi Fountain. After a comprehensive walking tour, your guide will lead you to a local kitchen, where you’ll learn how to make pasta from scratch. This 3.5-hour guided tour includes:

  • A walking tour of Rome’s city center must-see sites

  • A professional English-speaking guide

  • A pasta-making class with complimentary glass of prosecco

  • Traditional Roman pasta lunch with a glass of wine and tiramisu

Piazza Navona

One of the main squares in Rome, Piazza Navona is a delightful hub of food, culture and charming architecture. One of the first things you’ll notice when entering this piazza is the Egyptian Obelisk, towering over the surrounding buildings of the open square. See the beautiful Fountain of Four Rivers in the center of the piazza, known for its intricate sculptures. Your expert guide will delve into the story behind the Stadium of Domitian, the ancient stadium that lies beneath today’s piazza.

Pantheon

Continue on Rome’s cobblestone path as your guide leads the way to ancient Rome’s most well-preserved building. Now considered a church, the Pantheon is a former temple home to some of Rome’s most precious artwork. The structure’s rectangular vestibule links to a wholesome rotunda, drawing great inspiration from Greek architecture. Learn about the origins of Hadrian’s temple and the uncertainty behind its exact age.

Spanish Steps

Located in the middle of Rome’s high-end shopping scene, the Spanish Steps lead to the Trinità dei Monti church. At the base of the steps, you’ll find another one of Rome’s beautiful fountains, Fontana della Barcaccia, or “Fountain of the Longboat. If you are ambitious enough to climb the Spanish Steps later in your trip, you’ll find the Borghese Gardens, a beautiful park with stunning panoramic views of the city.

Trevi Fountain

Admire this gorgeous baroque fountain in Rome’s city center, which you may recognize from some classic films including Roman Holiday and La Dolce Vita. The fountain’s sculpture depicts Oceanus on a chariot being pulled by two horses. As you walk past, you’ll notice crowds of people tossing coins into the Trevi Fountain, hoping to one day return to Rome. Your guide will explain the construction and restoration of this Roman icon and allow you to toss your own coin into the fountain.

Pasta Making Class (1 hour)

Join a local chef as you learn the art of making authentic Italian pasta. You’ll be greeted with a glass of prosecco to get you in the mood for some more delicious Roman cuisine. Put your kitchen skills to work and make some fresh tagliatelle pasta with your group. What would an Italian meal be without dessert? After your pasta creation, learn how to prepare some delicious tiramisu.

Please note: The pasta that you will eat for lunch will not be the exact pasta prepared during your cooking class. For health code reasons, your lunch will consist of a delicious pasta dish that has been prepared for you by a professionally trained chef. You will get to take the pasta you created during your class home with you.

Great walking tour with knowledgeable guide

My sister and I took a walking tour with Dimitri and it was an amazing tour! Dimitri was extremely knowledgeable about the sites we visited and was very personable. He knew so much about the architecture and history of Rome, it was very impressive! The tour was a very doable 3 miles and you get to visit some of the more well known sites (the pantheon, Trevi fountain, Piazza Navona, etc), as well as some lesser known churches (one of which happened to have a Caravaggio painting inside that surprised even our guide!) The pasta making class was fun!

Loved the walking tour, our guide was the best. He even suggested a restaurant for later that was a highlight of our trip. Pasta lesson was so hands on, can't wait to try at home. Excellent lunch of fresh pasta. My first The Roman Guy tour but not my last.

Can't say enough about the tour, our guide whose knowledge made it a wonderful experience. The guide tailored our experience to what we enjoyed. As good as the tour was the pasta class was even better. The staff at ACRODOLCE was the best and we have a great time and enjoyed just the best meal we had during the trip. Highly recommend this company and this tour.
