Context provides an in-depth alternative to traditional tours. Context's Rome walking seminars are an alternative to typical guided tours. With over 50 different walks led by Ph.D. or MA-level scholars, and with the smallest group size available—only six people. Context is much more than a walking tour of Rome.

Antonella, our archeologist guide, provided a tour of the Colosseum that was a highlight of our trip to Italy. Her tour was a mini liberal arts education. We learned about the people who built this timeless building, how they built it, why it was built...More

There were five of us, the maximum, in our tour of Galleria Borghese. Our docent was a passionate art historian who conveyed a lot of information engagingly and entertainingly. Entrance to the Galleria is limited to two hours and it would be impossible to see...More

My take is these PhD tour guides can go deep in certain areas, but often they aren't good "tour guides"...can't hear them speak if group is larger than 2...and they miss some fundamentals you would get with regular tour guides. Not sure it's worth the...More

Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighbourhood just
west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as
it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet
for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season,
quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its
cobblestone streets. The neighbourhood supports unique
and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime
residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at
