Rome in a Day

Tour Description

So much to do, so little time? This 9 hour skip-the-line Rome Walking Tour is designed for those wishing to experience all of the city’s major sights in a day. Experience the Colosseum, stroll past the Roman Forum, and visit the Spanish Steps, the Pantheon, the Vatican Museums, the Sistine Chapel, and St. Peter’s Basilica. This is the ultimate walking tour of Rome!

Our expert guide will reveal the political, artistic, and religious history of Rome as you travel from ancient times to the modern period.

Witness the glory of Rome’s most enduring monument – the Colosseum – and learn about the scandals, passions, and intrigue that occurred within its walls and under its shadow in the nearby Roman Forum. As we walk past, you will be able to imagine the urban center full of life as it was in ancient times.

You will see more of Rome’s ancient past juxtaposed by modern history as you gaze through the Oculus of the Pantheon, hear the plop of coins falling into the Trevi Fountain, admire the architecture of the Spanish Steps and Piazza Navona, and bear witness to the mastery of Bernini.

An art lover’s paradise is waiting to be explored within your private tour of the Vatican City. Skip the lines to marvel at the splendor of St. Peter’s Basilica and Michelangelo’s fresco masterpiece in the Sistine chapel.

Your expert guide will help you navigate the corridors and galleries of the Vatican Museums to see famous works and little known-gems while disclosing papal secrets.
