sunset walking tour of rome

LivTours Private Sunset Walking Tour of Rome takes place at the perfect time to capture the magical moment as the sun begins to set on the Eternal City. In the glow of the evening light, the city’s buildings become stunningly more vibrant; ancient monuments, bridges, and fountains become dazzlingly illuminated by city lights. And, local Romans, done with their workday, begin to fill the streets and piazzas meeting up with friends and family for the daily Italian ritual known as la passeggiata. On this spectacular tour, you will be able to take part in the magic for yourself in the company of your private guide.

This is your chance to see the most famous highlights of Rome while maximizing your time as your private local guide leads the way, allowing you to be in the moment and leave the logistics to us! In the historic center, you will see the  Pantheon, the Spanish Steps, and Piazza Navona – home of the former Roman Circus (think chariot races) and is now the largest square in the Eternal City. Your private guide will make sure to stop at the Trevi Fountain, a must for any visitor to Rome, so you can toss a coin over your shoulder into the fountain and seal the deal for your return to the Eternal City!

Towards the end of your evening private tour, enjoy gelato from the best gelateria in town!

Your LivTours Private Sunset Walking Tour of Rome starts by meeting your guide near the Spanish Steps. You will discover why this monumental staircase with 135 steps was funded by a wealthy French aristocrat. After spending time on the Spanish Steps, your guide will lead you into the maze of charming cobblestone streets and alleyways that make up Rome’s most historic quarter. As you stroll under the evening sky, your guide will share with you interesting stories and historical facts about the innumerable little fountains dotted around the city, beautiful buildings, and hidden piazzas you pass. Next, it is on to the Trevi Fountain, the largest Baroque fountain in the city. Appearing in several films, including Fellini’s la Dolce Vita, this elegant fountain which stands 86 feet high and just over 160 feet wide took over a century to build. Make sure you throw a coin in the fountain to return to Rome!

A short walk later you will come to the Pantheon, a former Roman Temple it is now a Catholic church. Dating back to 27 BC, it is a triumphal accomplishment in engineering; to discover how the construction materials of this immense site were brought from Egypt. Once you have finished admiring the most well-preserved monument from Roman times, your guide will lead you to the largest square in Rome, la Piazza Navona. Notice the shape of the square that was once the seat of the Roman Circus, and open space stadium. Admire the Baroque fountains and hear the meaning behind the statues and decorations.

Your private tour includes an opportunity to try a delicious gelato from one of Rome’s best and most authentic gelaterias!

  • An enchanting evening stroll

    The two best times to see Rome, my husband and I have decided, are at sunrise and sunset. We were particularly enchanted with our sunset walking tour with Giulia. The tourist crowds have thinned and you experience that special, relaxed walk through a city that never ceases to impress! Giulia was a wonderful guide and a lovely, gracious person with whom we felt immediately at ease. This tour was everything we had desired and more! Thank you Giulia and thank you LivTours.

  • Memorable experience

    We were so happy that we booked the private walking tour at sunset. The colors of the city, on the monuments and the reflections on the river take on a very special nuance when the sun is setting. As our guide Rachel described the beautiful places we visited, we joined the romans in their traditional evening stroll and watched the sun set over St. Peter's dome. We will never forget this very special experience!
