Itinerary
Stop At:  
Piazza Navona
You will meet with your guide at the Colosseum where pre-booked tickets will enable you to avoid queuing at the entrance and explore this masterpiece of Roman engineering immediately. After seeing inside the Colosseum, you will move to the Arch of Constantine and the Roman Forum nearby. The Forum served as a centre of commerce, politics and religion in Roman times. Dotted around the square are the ruins of the Arch of Titus, the House of the Vestal Virgins, the Temple of Saturn, the Senate House, and the marble Arch of Septimius Severus. You’ll then head down the Via Sacra (Sacred Way) to the Capitoline Hill and Il Vittoriano, an imposing neoclassical building and an icon of the city. A further stroll and you will arrive at the renowned Trevi Fountain. According to legend, if you throw a coin into the fountain you are destined to return to Rome one day. You will then have some time for lunch (own expense). There is a wide selection of restaurants and other eateries to choose from, and your guide will be happy to recommend somewhere. After lunch you will enter the Government District, home to the Parliament Building, the Palace of the Council of Ministers and the Column of Marcus Aurelius. The ancient Temple of Hadrian stands nearby; a magnificent structure, built by the Emperor Antonius Pius to honour his predecessor. A short walk down a narrow passageway will bring you to the Pantheon, the site of the great Renaissance Master Raphael’s tomb. You’ll then pass by the remains of the Baths of Nero as you make your way to Piazza Navona where you’ll see Bernini’s breath-taking ‘Fountain of the Four Rivers’. The last stop on the tour will be the Vatican City, just across the river Tiber. Here you’ll see the Vatican Museums; a cornucopia of incredible artworks including frescoes by Raphael, as well as Michelangelo’s epic ceiling in the Sistine Chapel. You will also visit Saint Peter’s Basilica and finally into Saint Peter’s Square where you can see the exterior of the papal palace – a wonderful 6 hours in Rome!
