Extended tour of ancient Rome which includes priority entrance skip-the-line Coliseum tickets, a tour around the Roman Forum, plus historic city center walk and the magnificent Pantheon!

A guided tour inside the Coliseum and around Rome's ancient city center is first port of call for every visitor! After touring the entire Roman forum we take you right to the heart of Renaissance Rome for a visit to the lovely Trevi Fountain, then on a tour of Piazza Navona where you'll see some fine examples of Baroque sculpture above the Circus of Domitian, before a concluding stroll through the most beautiful part of Rome to the Pantheon, which is without any shadow of doubt one of the oldest and most spectacular buildings ever created. This is the de facto tour when in Rome!

Walk in the footsteps of heroes and tyrants such as Julius Gaius Caesar, Nero, and Trajan, while learning about the origins, rise and fall of the Roman Empire. Memories of centuries past echo through the remains of ruined temples, to remind us all that Rome is, and shall always be "Caput Mundi". This tour includes the Coliseum and Roman Forum, Palatine Hill (overview from forum), newly restored (by Fendi) Trevi Fountain, Piazza Navona, and the Pantheon.

For security reasons, backpacks, rucksacks, large handbags, luggage etc. are banned inside the Coliseum, Roman Forum, and Palatine Hill.

Rated: 5/5 - Rome in a Day tour
Sam (07 August, 2016 - 06:41pm)

"I must say this tour was well worth the money. The first half of the tour was with Chiara, she was amazing. One of our tour mates suggested Chiara should become a professional comedian.. :-) Her energetic style to the tour kept everyone engaged and hooked onto every word. Chiara was very protective of the group and would challenge anyone that tried to interfere with her tour group. If you are so lucky to get Chiara as a tour guide make sure you ask her about the "engagement ring" - she will know what you are talking about.. The second half of the tour was with another great tour guide, she gave my daughter and I a tour of the vatican museum and chapel. She too was awesome and very knowledgable about the museum. My overall experience with the tour company was a very pleasant one. I would recommend anyone that has limited time in Rome to do the Rome in a day tour."

She had a good sense of humour and facial expressions, she reached out to everyone on the team, so 1,000 thanks to the sweet guide named Chiara."

Marc (03 October, 2013 - 08:16pm)

"A friend and I took this tour on Saturday September 20th on our last full day in Rome, and it was well worth it. Our guide Chiara (not sure if spelled right) was very friendly, and grew up in Rome so could provide local perspective. She provided lots of interesting historical detail especially on the Colisseum and Forum, which certainly beat using an audioguide or self guided tour in our opinion. The pace was brisk when going from place to place, but we never felt rushed, plenty of time for pictures and taking in the atmosphere. Also, the tour went a little long, more like 4.5 hours but that was not an issue for us. Group size was 8-10 people, just the right amount. I'd definitely recommend this tour."

Rated: 5/5 - Wonderful!!!
Kari (10 June, 2013 - 03:16am)

"We had such a wonderful time. Our tour guide was Antonia and we couldn't have asked for a kinder, more professional, more knowledgeable guide. It was a long tour, about 4 hours, and she kept us interested, peppered the tour with fun facts that I still remember, and gave us enough time to take pictures. The agency itself has a wonderful office, that is spacious, air-conditioned, and very well organized in case you have anything to discuss or would like to book your tour in person."
