Evening Rome Walking Tour

Let Rome, the Eternal City, enchant you with a nighttime walking tour. Embrace the late evening hours as you ditch the crowds and heat. A local guide will lead you on an incredible journey back in time past Rome’s illuminated monuments.

From ancient times to the modern-day, Romans have always known the importance of the humble square. You’ll begin the tour in Rome’s most elaborate square, Piazza Navona, right by the famous Fountain of the Four Rivers by Bernini. Down the street and surrounded by rustic cobbled alleyways lies the towering Pantheon. Emperor Hadrian constructed this record-breaking dome nearly 2,000 years ago, and it still puzzles archaeologists to this day. Listen to your guide divulge stories regarding the mystery that shrouds the city's most intact Ancient Roman building.

Next up is one of Rome’s most iconic and romantic spots, the magnificent Trevi Fountain. Admiring the famous fountain as it glows at night is a magical experience. After explaining the history of the Trevi Fountain and the legend of the coin toss, your guide will pause for a short break, where you can take photos or enjoy a refreshment.

Continue through the city and pass the biggest building in Rome, Piazza Venezia, built to commemorate the founder of modern Italy, Vittorio Emanuele II. Explore the history of Italy’s unification towards the end of the 19th century in this iconic area. Next, your guide will navigate through the Ancient City of Rome on the road of the Imperial Forums. The illuminated statues of emperors, columns, temples, triumphal arches, and the winding streets of Ancient Rome are truly a sight to behold at night.

Saving the best for last, your evening excursion ends with a secret, picture-perfect viewpoint that overlooks the illuminated Colosseum
