What to expect

Join a tour led by an expert private guide and discover the best Rome has to offer: you'll get to visit the ancient and modern beauties this amazing city is home to, from the Roman Forum and Trevi Fountain to the Pantheon, Piazza Navona and much more!

Your guide will make sure that the experience is tailor-made for you. Before you start, you'll have the opportunity to make any adjustments you wish to the itinerary so that you're certain to fully enjoy your visit and not miss out on sites you're most eager to see.

The tour begins at the Colosseum, and with fast-track access tickets there will be no time wasted queueing. Once inside, your guide will tell you more about the history of this ancient arena – the largest of its kind ever built. You’ll hear the intriguing stories of the violent duels which took place here, and you'll discover why and how it was built. After a very short walk, you'll get to the Arch of Constantine and the Forum, the next stop on the tour.

The Forum was the political, economic and religious center of the city. Here you'll see the ruins of the Temple of Julius Caesar, built on the site of his cremation, the Arch of Titus, House of the Vestal Virgins as well as the Senate House and the Basilica of Maxentius. You'll then move on to one of the most recognizable buildings in the city, Il Vittoriano, and to the Quirinal Palace, the official residence of the current Italian president.

The tour also includes a visit to the renowned Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps, Piazza Navona – with its breath-taking fountains – and the impressive Pantheon. With so much to see in the Eternal City, accompanied by a guide you can be sure to experience the very best!
