Travel Tips

  • Make sure you have enough time to find your meeting point for your tour. Try to arrive at least 15 minutes before the tour departure time.
  • Don’t slow your group down, make sure to use a bathroom before the tour begins. Public toilets are not easy to find and most cafes require a purchase to use their facilities.
  • Always make sure to wear comfortable shoes, regardless of the tour you select. This doesn’t mean the shoes can’t be stylish but keep in mind that you will be walking on cobblestone streets, marble and uneven pavement.
  • Wear appropriate clothing for the weather and also keep in mind that for Vatican tours and any entrance to the Pantheon or a church shoulders and knees must be covered for both men and women.
  • Make sure you are charged. Nothing is worse than your phone or camera running out of battery in the middle of a tour. Bring an external charger just in case.
  • Don’t book tours back to back. Avoid the stress of rushing from one tour to the next by allowing ample time in between tours.
  • Set aside time for your tour and book in advance. Two to Three Hours is an adequate amount of time to truly enjoy your visit.
  • Prices vary depending on the type and duration of the tour you wish to book. The smaller the group, the higher the price.
