2. What you’ll want to include (or skip)
You might want to include in your walking tour the classic hotspots in Rome – Colosseum, Vatican, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, Navona Square, just to mention a few- or have a more original approach and visit the city under a different perspective with a street art tour, a tour at night, an underground tour of Rome.

3. Be specific with the locations & things you want to see – while walking
There is no better way to get the feeling of the city than walking. But not every spot is worth visiting on foot.
