When there are so many Rome guided tours to choose from, it can feel a little overwhelming. Hiring a tour guide when in Rome is an excellent idea, and all you need to do is decide in advance which type of tour will suit you and the vacation you are planning.
Not everyone takes a break away from home for the same reasons. Some want adventure, some want peace and quiet, some want culture, and others just want some time to spend with their loved ones away from work. Knowing which type of vacation you want will make choosing the right guided tours of Italy a lot easier. If you want a Rome tour guide to give you the perfect family view of Rome, that’s not a problem at all. There can be a lot of walking to do in this great city, and that can take its toll on children, or even on elderly family members. Therefore, you may want to find a tour that caters for those who are less mobile, focusing instead on a smaller portion of the city where everything you will want to see is close by. Something that you will need to take into account is that Rome is an extremely busy place, one of the world’s top travel destinations according to Telegraph Travel. That means it will be busy, and queues to some tourist attractions could take a while. Make sure you bring water and enough toys or books to entertain the little ones while you wait.
Perhaps you’re not on vacation with your children or maybe you are a couple looking for a romantic break away. If so, you may want to look into private tours of Rome, rather than those that are meant for larger groups. This may be a little bit more expensive, but could well be worth stretching your budget if you prefer some proper alone time whilst learning all about the history and culture of Rome. If you have gone to Rome to soak up the culture and the art, then there will be Rome guided tours to suit you too. Rather than visiting all the usual tourist hotspots, you can instead go to less visited places such as churches and museums. Speak to a tour guide and you may even be able to create a private tour that takes you only to the places you want to go to. Bespoke tours are ideal when you already know what you want to see. And of course, if you have journeyed to Rome in order to visit the wonderful, evocative Vatican City, you can book onto a tour that lets you in on some of the fascinating history behind it. Whatever you want to see and learn about, there will be a tour that allows you to.
Whether you book one of the private Vatican tours, a museum tour, a family friendly tour, or any of the other Rome guided tours that are available, you will come home with a better understanding – and appreciation – of this magnificent city. So what are you waiting for? Rome is ready for you.
