Classical Rome City Tour
- Hotel pickup included
- Comprehensive tour of the city
- Led by a local guide
The centro storico was made for carefree strolling, with a myriad of cobbled footpaths and picturesque piazzas, lined by buzzing pavement-side cafés. Baroque churches, fountains and palazzos built during the Renaissance are scattered around, adding to the oh-so-Roman charm that abounds.
Amble to Trevi Fountain, hearing about its coin-throwing traditions from your guide, and then stop to throw one in yourself. Do it according to legend: throw one coin to visit Rome again, two coins to fall in love with an Italian, and a third coin to marry one! After posing for photos in front of the dazzling masterpiece, stroll over to the Column of Marcus Aurelius, and then walk over to Palazzo di Montecitorio -- an elegant Bernini-designed palace that is now used as a parliament building.
Head inside Rome Pantheon and marvel at the interior of the city’s best-preserved ancient monument. Officially a church, the Pantheon contains several tombs of eminent Italians, like the Renaissance genius Raphael. Pose for pictures from the outside and then walk from Piazza della Rotonda to Piazza Navona to admire its lavish Bernini fountains.
Hop back on board your coach and end your tour back at the start point. Alternatively, request a drop-off at one of four different locations; simply let your guide know on the day.
Want to see more of Rome? Upgrade to the full-day tour, and after your morning tour, spend a couple of hours at leisure for lunch (own expense), and then meet your guide at a pre-arranged time for your afternoon tour. By coach and on foot, see the sights of Imperial Rome, including Piazza de Campidoglio on Capitoline Hill, Circus Maximus, and the Church of St Peter in Chains. Finish with a skip-the-line Colosseum tour.

Although I cannot remember the name of our morning tour guide. She did an excellent job of informing us about the history of the different buildings in the center of Rome. I appreciated that she warned us about the gypsies and other things to be cautious about regarding when traveling in Rome. Our afternoon tour guide, Max, was an excellent and funny tour guide. I greatly enjoyed listening to him explain the different tour sites we visited. This tour was a great tour and if I ever get an opportunity to visit Rome again, I will definitely book another tour.

The morning tour was very nice and we had a lunch, as part of our tour, that was MUCH nicer than we were expecting. The afternoon tour was my favorite part. The Forum most certainly activated my imagination and I could have stayed much longer just seeing it as it once was. The Colosseum was our last stop and our guide seemed extremely knowledgeable. Surprise! He was a retired Archeology professor who had even supervised college students involved in archeological digs at The Colosseum. What a wonderful opportunity to ask questions and learn more than we could have expected to. Thanks Viator!
