On this Rome walking tour, capture the best sites in Rome with your local guide.  As you stroll through the charming streets of the Eternal City, you’ll begin to recognize some of the most famous attractions in Rome, such as the Spanish Steps, Pantheon and Trevi Fountain. After a comprehensive walking tour, your guide will lead you to a local kitchen, where you’ll learn how to make pasta from scratch. This 3.5-hour guided tour includes:

  • A walking tour of Rome’s city center must-see sites
  • A professional English-speaking guide
  • A pasta-making class with complimentary glass of prosecco
  • Traditional Roman pasta lunch with a glass of wine and tiramisu

Piazza Navona

One of the main squares in Rome, Piazza Navona is a delightful hub of food, culture and charming architecture. One of the first things you’ll notice when entering this piazza is the Egyptian Obelisk, towering over the surrounding buildings of the open square. See the beautiful Fountain of Four Rivers in the center of the piazza, known for its intricate sculptures. Your expert guide will delve into the story behind the Stadium of Domitian, the ancient stadium that lies beneath today’s piazza.

Pantheon

Continue on Rome’s cobblestone path as your guide leads the way to ancient Rome’s most well-preserved building. Now considered a church, the Pantheon is a former temple home to some of Rome’s most precious artwork. The structure’s rectangular vestibule links to a wholesome rotunda, drawing great inspiration from Greek architecture. Learn about the origins of Hadrian’s temple and the uncertainty behind its exact age.

Spanish Steps

Located in the middle of Rome’s high-end shopping scene, the Spanish Steps lead to the Trinità dei Monti church. At the base of the steps, you’ll find another one of Rome’s beautiful fountains, Fontana della Barcaccia, or “Fountain of the Longboat. If you are ambitious enough to climb the Spanish Steps later in your trip, you’ll find the Borghese Gardens, a beautiful park with stunning panoramic views of the city.

Trevi Fountain

Admire this gorgeous baroque fountain in Rome’s city center, which you may recognize from some classic films including Roman Holiday and La Dolce Vita. The fountain’s sculpture depicts Oceanus on a chariot being pulled by two horses. As you walk past, you’ll notice crowds of people tossing coins into the Trevi Fountain, hoping to one day return to Rome. Your guide will explain the construction and restoration of this Roman icon and allow you to toss your own coin into the fountain.

Pasta Making Class (1 hour)

Join a local chef as you learn the art of making authentic Italian pasta. You’ll be greeted with a glass of prosecco to get you in the mood for some more delicious Roman cuisine. Put your kitchen skills to work and make some fresh tagliatelle pasta with your group. What would an Italian meal be without dessert? After your pasta creation, learn how to prepare some delicious tiramisu.

Please note: The pasta that you will eat for lunch will not be the exact pasta prepared during your cooking class. For health code reasons, your lunch will consist of a delicious pasta dish that has been prepared for you by a professionally trained chef. You will get to take the pasta you created during your class home with you.

So fun!

Me and my kids loved the pasta making class, the best experience we had in Italy. The guide and instructors were great too!

Great Food

The pasta class was in a restaurant that was open to other customers. We made the pasta while sitting at the tables which was a little awkward. The instructor was amazing and we discovered that making pasta is really easy. After the class was done we were able to order a pasta dish from the menu.
