Classical Rome City Tour

243 Reviews

  • Location: Rome, Italy
  • Duration: 3 - 6 hours (approx.)
  • Tour code: 2390GRET1
Spend your morning on this classic Rome tour, seeing all the top attractions in Rome’s ‘centro storico’ – its historic center. By both coach and foot, visit must-see sites like Piazza Navona, Trevi Fountain and the Pantheon on the 3-hour Rome morning tour. If you'd like to see more, upgrade to a full-day tour (with or without lunch) to see the sights of Imperial Rome in the afternoon. Visit Capitoline Hill and the intriguing Church of St Peter in Chains, and then finish your day with a skip-the-line Colosseum tour!

Highlights

  • Hotel pickup included
  • Comprehensive tour of the city
  • Led by a local guide
Start your morning with either a hotel pickup or by meeting your guide near Rome Termini Station. From this point, your classic Rome tour heads to Rome’s centro storico, passing through Piazza della Repubblica to see the Fountain of the Nyadds (Fontana delle Naiadi).

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.

Full-Day Tour:
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.

Full-Day Tour with Lunch:
Upgrade to the full-day tour and include lunch at a restaurant close to Vatican City or Termini Station in between your morning and afternoon tour.

Hotel pickup is available; please click on ‘View Additional Info’ below to see the Rome hotels that are included in this service.

Please note:
Rome's Trevi Fountain is currently under restoration until late 2015. A walkway above the central portion of the fountain will allow you to catch a glimpse of the ongoing work. Water will be drained during the process, but you'll still be able to cast your coins into the fountain for luck.

A great day with a great guide. There is SO MUCH art in Rome (and all of Italy, really) that the guide could be talking every second of the tour. I think they do a good job covering the highlights. If you majored in art history, you're going to know more than everyone else on the tour -- but you'll enjoy yourself, too.

A wonderful experience. Walking tours are so much fun. Our guide Max is amazing. He has so much knowledge and a great sense of humor and I love the way he talks with his hands. I would recommend this to everyone.
