Rome Audio Tours for your Smartphone or Tablet


If you like the idea of an expert tour of Rome but don’t like the idea of walking around with a group of other visitors then an audio tour of the city might be a great solution for you.

One of the best audio tours we’ve come across recently is by New Found Tours. Each guide fully covers the history and stories that surround the most fascinating areas of Rome. It’s a great way to bring the city’s history to life.

As you’d expect, the famous Rome attractions like the Vatican & St. Peter’s, the Trevi Fountain, the Pantheon, Spanish Steps, Colosseum, Piazza Navona, etc. – are all covered but it’s great to see less well-known areas of the city featured like Castle St. Angelo, Campo dei Fiori and the amazing Largo Argentina.

The New Found Tours collection is split across four separate audio tours covering fourteen historic sites with a combined running time of just under an hour and a half. Taking the tour itself in Rome will take about four hours – allowing for a leisurely stroll between each of the attractions featured in the tour – so it’s perfect for an afternoon of getting totally immersed in the history of Rome.

The complete tour costs $9.99 and is an immediate MP3 download so it’s compatible with any phone, computer or tablet with an audio player. You can hear audio samples on the New Found Tours order page.
