Description

This is the ideal tour for visitors who are willing to cover all of the highlights and attractions of Rome in one day.

After meeting with your guide at the designated meeting point, you’ll receive a brief explanation of the itinerary, you’ll skip the lines to enter the Colosseum, and will begin with the tour of the world’s largest amphitheater.
The tour guide will bring the Colosseum back to life by explaining how the gladiators entertained the crowds with spectacular fights and show you the engineering applied by the Romans to build such an imposing structure ahead of its time.

Next, you will proceed to the Roman Forum, an archaeological site that represented the commercial, legal, and administrative center of Ancient Rome. You will feel as though you have been transported back in time to the Imperial age of Rome as you stroll through the ruins of ancient temples and Roman mausoleums, such as the Roman senate and the original altar where Julius Caesar’s body was cremated. You’ll then get to explore Palatine Hill, the birthplace of Rome, and see what remains of ancient Roman Villas and houses of rich and important Roman families.

From the Roman Forum, you’ll make your way across town (transportation not included) to explore the world-renowned Vatican museums and two of the most important churches in the world: the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica. The greatness of the façade and care of details will overwhelm you. Highlights of the Basilica include Michelangelo’s Pieta’, the imposing 29-meter-tall Baldacchin by Bernini, and the mosaics that cover the whole ceiling.

At the end of the Vatican tour, the guide will take you to a typical Roman “Trattoria” restaurant (not included) to taste some of the most delicious Roman dishes. After recharging batteries at lunch, you’ll go to the Navona Square where the last part of the tour begins: You will explore one of the most iconic and beautiful squares of Rome, you will walk inside the Eternal Pantheon, and finally, throw your coin in the Trevi fountain to assure your future return to Rome!
