What's a SoundGuide?

Say hello to your new best friend! SoundGuides deliver a heady mix of straight-talking information, drama, history, banter, gossip and a bit of daft thrown in. This comprehensive and self-guided audio tour of Rome is custom made to enhance your experience without getting in your way. It's the next best thing to having a friend in every city.

Soundguides tracks are split into two categories to maximize your flexibility.

Before You Go

  • Little Gems: I've heard of the Colloseum but where's this gladiator school?
  • Save Money: How can I avoid the tourist traps?
  • Hidden Rome: How come Italians look so darn good all the time?
  • Language: Why is everyone shouting Chow! Bella! At me?
  • History: Who built what, when and why? Where did Julius Caeser get murdered?
  • Go Native: What's the proper way to order your Second Plate in an Italian restaurant? How can you tell when Gelato is authentic?

While You're There
  • The Colloseum: How did they manage to fill the auditorium in 15 minutes? How many animals died in a season of games? Who got to watch? What were the side shows? Who were the strange characters with the mallet and the red hot poker?
  • The Forum: What was the Roman Forum like in it's hey day? What was everyday life like in ancient Rome?
  • Circus Maximus: Welcome to the largest sporting arena ever built, just what went on here?
  • Trevi Fountain: What's it got to do with an angry Barber? And find out the secret of how a small coin can guarantee your return to Rome.
  • Sistine Chapel: If there's black smoke coming from the Sistine chapel what does it mean? And learn how Michelangelo got revenge on his critics.
  • St Peter's Basilica: Is St. Peter himself really interred beneath the altar?
  • Spanish Steps: OK, so just what has a Spanish square in Rome got to do with English poetry?
  • Pantheon: Discover how the Pantheon survived 2000 years and still looks brand new. And find out why there's such a big hole in the roof.

SoundGuides are absolutely packed with the most romantic, terrible and wonderful tales of how this city came to be the marvel it is to today.
