How it works!

Hello and welcome to Free Tour Rome

Get the best out of your Rome city trip!

Visiting a new city can be overwhelming and especially a city like Rome. With over 2500 years of history, there is just so much to see. Rome was the capital of the Roman Empire and many amazing buildings from this time are still standing, like the Colosseum or the Pantheon. After, it became the center of Catholicism in the world. Many amazing paintings, churches and frescoes were created to glorify the Church. Besides this, Rome is also the capital of the modern country of Italy. You see why it is easy to get overwhelmed?

Because of this a good introduction to the city can really make your stay so much more worthwhile. Our guides all know this beautiful city in and out. They can tell you everything about the history and monuments, but will also provide you with the essential tips that will make your stay in the Eternal City a great one. Do you want to know how the public transport works? What are the must-sees in Rome? Which museums are the best? What about the nightlife? Where to go if you have kids? Our goal is to answer all your questions and show you some of the most beautiful places in the city.

We like to keep our tour groups small, so make sure to book today. Our tours sell out quite fast in the high season (March to November). This is the only way we can guarantee and keep for you the highest level of our tour service.
