Description

This is the ideal tour for “hit and quit” visitors that are willing to cover all of the main highlights and attractions of Rome in one day. The tour includes pick-up from your accommodation, transfers between destinations in comfortable air conditioned vehicle, priority entrance with VIP "skip the line" tickets in both Colosseum and Vatican and a traditional 2 course meal in one of our favourite Roman restaurants!

After the complimentary pick-up from your accommodation, you will start by visiting the world’s largest amphitheatre with your “skip the line” ticket, which will allow you to access directly the metal detector control. Once inside, 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 complex engineering applied by the Romans to build such an imposing structure.

After the Colosseum, you will proceed into the archaeological site of the Roman Forum which represented the commercial, legal and administrative center of Ancient Rome. You will literally feel as if you were brought back in time during the Imperial age of Rome. All of this, while walking by the ruins of ancient temples and Roman mausoleums.

From the Roman Forum, a driver with air conditioned vehicle will pick you up and take you way across town 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. You’re sure to be dazzled by the masterpieces of great artists like Michelangelo with his world-renowned ceiling, “Last Judgment” and Pieta, and Gian Lorenzo Bernini with his twirling bronze baldachin, tomb of Alexander VII, and the many other gorgeous embellishments with which he adorned the interior of St. Peter’s Basilica. During the whole visit, your guide will fill you in on the historic, religious and artistic significance of the works and structures, as well as, the stories of the artists themselves. At the end of the Vatican tour, the guide will take you to a typical Italian “Trattoria” restaurant to taste some of the most delicious Roman dishes. After recharging batteries at lunch, you will drive to Navona square where the last section 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 in order to assure your future return to Rome.
