Rome by Night Walking Tour
Start your tour (from outside) at the world-famous Colosseum, dramatically illuminated against the dark night sky. Once capable of holding an estimated 80,000 spectators, this masterpiece of Roman engineering has been used over the millennia for events as varied as public executions, gladiatorial bouts, religious ceremonies and theatrical re-enactments of Classical mythology. Take a tour of the spectacular amphitheater’s imposing exterior and listen as your guide talks in detail of its fascinating history.
Continue on to Capitoline Hill with your guide and admire the view of the famous Roman Forum area, where the ruins of many Ancient Roman government buildings still stand. It was here, during the days of the Roman Empire, that public events such as criminal trials, market days and political rallies took place on a daily basis.
Head first to the Pantheon, initially commissioned by Marcus Agrippa during the reign of Augustus (between 27 BC and 14 AD) then rebuilt by the emperor Hadrian in around 126 AD. Explore the nearby Trevi Fountain, an icon of Rome considered by many to be one of the city’s most impressive treasures.
This memorable night tour in Rome concludes with a visit to Piazza Navona- a square made famous by its three fountains by Bernini and extremely interesting anecdotes, which our guides will enthusiastically share with you.

Claire did an excellent job and was a wonderful tour guide. Would highly recommend this tour to everyone.
This was such a great tour! My husband and I now want to go for any city tour at night because of this tour. The tour guide was great. She loved Rome and her passion really came through. She helped us with quite a lot of 'perfect picture' spots too.
I have been to this World's wonder twice...day and night. Try both instead of one... one thing for sure...the ambience that your lens eyes and camera captured will surely tell you the difference...
This was an excellent tour! We had the best tour guide, but I don't remember his name. We had little radio things with ear buds and the guy talked into a mic, so it was easy for us all to hear everything he said. He really knew a lot of history and kept us entertained the whole time.
We loved this tour. Seeing the coliseum at night was beautiful. We just got into Rome the morning of the walking tour and the tour was a great way to get established in Rome. The guide was delightful and knowledgeable. The tour was worth the value.
The tour guide was exceptional, she was well prepared, took us for many places and give us advise where to eat and drink too. It is definitely worth spending time doing this tour, especially in your first day in Roma.
