What you can expect on Your Christmas in Rome walking tour.

You will join your small group (max 9 people) and local guide at Barcaccia (fountain of a boat) at the bottom of the Spanish Steps. The guided tour will commence with a stroll through the high-end shopping district of Rome where all the boutiques are beautifully lit for Christmas.

Continue your tour to the very center of Rome to admire stunning Piazza Colonna and Galleria Sordi. Listen to your guide’s Christmas-themed commentary as you wander the narrow streets to the Pantheon (we stop for a short coffee break at the Pantheon), and then, to the Christmas market at Piazza Navona, the most spectacular square of Rome.

At the piazza Navona, your guide will give you ample time to take photos, ask questions, take a little break, or buy presents at the traditional Christmas shops for your friends and family back home.

From piazza Navona, your guide will take you to the last stop of this tour, the Vatican, Saint Peter’s Square. Marvel at the most stunning, world-famous Nativity Scene in Rome as your tour ends, and soak up the atmosphere of this truly magnificent place.

We booked this tour last year and loved it so much that we’re doing it again this year. Sarah was our guide, she spoke perfect English and kept us entertained for 2 hours 🙂 We stopped for coffee at Tazza Doro (forgive my spelling), I had hot chocolate which was AMAZING. Sarah told us wonderful Christmas stories and explained many Roman traditions. My favorite part of the tour was walking into Saint Peter’s square at night with not a single person in sight, just our small group.
This time we are coming with the whole family!

Sarah knew a lot of history about the buildings but she also gave us local tips on where to go or not to go. She was very friendly and personable which made it easy to ask question. It was a perfect first night in Rome.

Special your at Christmas. Fantastic! Loved our guide. Wonderfully engaging and full of insight. Rome is very specialized at Christmas

Well organized company and outstanding guide (Sarah). We enjoyed the Christmas lights and insights into the different areas we toured. We had great weather and that was a huge plus. I would recommend this tour if you can walk for 2+ hours (flat services, limited steps but lots of uneven surfaces).

We signed up for this trip for our 2nd day in the city and it was one of the smartest things we did. It was supposed to be a 2.5 hour tour but became a 3 hour walking tour with Sarah taking us all over the city not only to see the city’s festive Christmas display but also to share some of it’s rich and ancient history. She was great and we got some of the best pictures of our trip that evening.
