Rome Walking Tour

Here are some tips to take a fun Rome Walking Tour: start your tour from Piazza Venezia, at the end of Via del Corso, and admire the towering monument of Vittoriano, dedicated to the first king of Italy Victor Emmanuel II. The monument, built from 1911 and 1935, is also called Altar of the Fatherland.

Behind the Vittoriano is the Basilica of Saint Mary of the Altar of Heavens, with its long staircase. Italian famous football player Francesco Totti and his wife Ilary Blasi chose this church for their wedding. Next to the church is the Piazza del Campidoglio, designed by Michelangelo. Three palaces overlook the square and houses the Capitoline Museums, if you want to visit them keep in mind the opening hours: Tuesday to Sunday 9.00 a.m – 8.00 p.m.

End your Rome walking tour strolling along Via dei Fori Imperiali, where finally you will reach the Colosseum, the most impressive monument in the city and symbol of the ancient grandeur of the capital of Roman Empire.
