If you are planning to visit a city in Italy, you might want to consider joining a free walking tour with a local guide.

These types of tours are slowly becoming more common in Italy and are the best way to meet other people and explore new places with the help of an experienced guide without spending too much.

What is a Free Walking Tour?

Free Walking Tour is a tour where a local guide takes participants to explore the city without a fixed cost. Typically, they last from 2 to 4 hours and have free cancellation.

Does this mean that the tour is 100% free? It depends. Even though there is no fixed cost it is still a good habit to tip your guide. If you have no idea how much to give, don’t worry. At the end of the tour, the guide will give some indication of how much people usually tip (most of the time is at least 10 euros per person) but, as mentioned, there are no obligations.

Keep in mind that since it’s a walking tour, most likely you won’t visit places of interest such as museums or monuments, but you can still go back later.
