Hit the ground running in your Rome in a Day Private Tour and skip the mind-numbing queues for the Roman Colosseum, the ancient world’s greatest sports arena! Your guide will enthrall you with tales of gladiators and martyrs that made the Colosseum famous while exploring the remnants of their history together.
Next you’ll head over to the Roman Forum to learn how the heart of Rome’s all-encompassing empire functioned and thrived. Forget battling through the crowds inside the Forum, your guide will lead you directly to a stunning lookout point. From there, you can take in the entire Forum complex, including the Senate House and the Temple of the Vestal Virgins. During your Rome in a day private tour your guide will make it easy to imagine how the Forum must have appeared 2,000 years ago with stories of war, politics, economics and religion that shaped the ancient city.
No walk through Ancient Rome would be complete without a visit to the Pantheon. This nearly 2,000-year-old building has the largest non-reinforced concrete dome in the world. As you view it from inside on your Rome in a day guided tour, you’ll hear the story of how it was built and why it has inspired so many other buildings, from St. Peter’s Basilica to the U.S. Capitol Building.
Your Rome in one day private tour, through the Historic Centre, continues with a stop at the stunning Trevi Fountain, which is the largest baroque fountain in Rome. Legend has it that if you toss a coin over your left shoulder into the Fountain you’ll return to Rome one day.
The next stop in your full day tour of Rome is the Spanish Steps for a spot of people watching and plenty of photo opportunities. From here your guide will take you on the metro to the Vatican, where you will have a break for lunch before entering the Vatican City.
After lunch, your guide will take you straight into the Vatican Museums, where you’ll skip the long lines of people (who didn’t book with Real Rome Tours) and head straight in. With your Vatican expert to guide you, you’ll delve into one of the world’s greatest art collections.
This specially-curated Vatican tour highlights the best works in the vast collections here, giving you a broad understanding and appreciation of what you’re seeing. You’ll explore the sculpture galleries and the world-famous Laocoön Group before heading to the Sistine Chapel.
No Rome in One Day tour would be complete without visiting the most renowned work of Renaissance architecture and the largest church in the world – St Peter’s Basilica.
Michelangelo’s great dome is something that you have to see in real life. Pictures cannot do it justice or portray the sheer magnitude of it. Your local, expert tour guide will explain to you the fascinating history of its conception, location on the Vatican Hill, design, architecture and symbolism.
The Basilica features several chapels and contains numerous statues and mosaic works of importance. Your guide will point out the most important, and leave you with time to look around by yourself. The Pietà, one of Michelangelo’s most well-known religious sculptures, is among the highlights of this part of your visit.
