Our full-day Rome walking tour is perfect for visitors who only have a short time in Rome and want to see the very best of the city – past and present. Explore the history of the Roman Empire on a Colosseum tour before racing back to the future on an adventure through its picturesque streets and piazzas, experiencing Rome as it is today on our popular Best of Rome Walking Tour.
We’ll kick-start our day with a skip the line Colosseum tour, bypassing long queues to gain access to this magnificent structure. Follow your English-speaking guide as they lead you to the best vantage points inside the Colosseum, telling you the stories and pointing out the details that bring this magnificent arena to life.
Roman Forum, Palatine Hill
Our tour through Ancient Rome continues on to the Forum, once the heart of the Empire's political power, where Romans from all walks of life participated in the incredible exploits that made the civilization so remarkable, and then on to the Palatine Hill – the spot where it all started. Legend has it that this is where Remus and Romulus were raised by their wolf mother and where Romulus decided to found his city. It’s also home to the city’s oldest ruins and best views.
Next we’ll take a well-deserved break for lunch in the historic centerof the city. Your guide will recommend a spot or you can follow your nose to one of the countless trattorias and pizzerias around the area. Soak up the atmosphere before the next leg of our tour, a journey through the best of modern Rome.
Sightseeing in Rome
After the pause we’ll wander the streets of Rome, seeing the most famous sights – from the Spanish Steps to the Trevi Fountain, the Pantheon and splendid Piazza Navona. Again your guide will bring the myriad sights from across the centuries to life with the stories and myths that make Rome unlike any other city in the world. Want to know why Raphael died so young? Or why there is one spot by the Trevi Fountain from where your view is completely obscured? Listen to your guide as they lead you on a trek that takes in the length and breadth of Rome’s historic center.
