Itinerary
Stop At:  
Piazza del Colosseo
As you step inside this imposing ancient structure allow your imagination to explore what the Colosseum was like in its full glory: more than 50,000 roaring spectators appearing like confetti as they filled the seats around the arena where gladiatorial battles, animal hunts, public executions, theatrical plays, and many other forms of entertainment unimaginable in modern society took place for the public's enjoyment. Please remember to book your tickets online. You may contact us for the website.
Duration: 45 minutes
Admission Ticket Not Included
Pass By:  
Circus Maximus
The Circus Maximus is the large ancient stadium where chariot races were held for the pleasure of Roman citizens and royalty. Listen closely and you can almost hear the roar of the crowds and the galloping of the horses’ hooves as they race for the finish. Envision chariot races as seen in the famous film Ben Hur.

Stop At:  
Roman Forum
Your next stop in Rome's historic center will be Capitoline Hill where you will be treated to a panoramic splendor sweeping across the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill from a terrace known for the most picturesque view. It is incredible to imagine that the vast remains of temples and public buildings in the Roman Forum were once part of the most important center of the Roman Empire as it served as its political, legal, financial and religious nucleus.

Pass By:  
Piazza Venezia
As you drive through Piazza Venezia, you will also have the opportunity to see from the comfort of your vehicle the Vittorio Emanuele II Monument that was dedicated to the first king of Italy. The monument is also blindingly white, making it highly conspicuous as it sits among the ochre buildings surrounding it. Its stacked, crowded appearance has caused it to be saddled with several nicknames from "Zuppa Inglese", "the wedding cake", and "the dentures", while Americans liberating Rome in 1944 labeled it "the typewriter", a nickname also adopted by the locals.

Stop At:  
Pantheon
Once an ancient pagan temple of all Roman gods. Several centuries later it became a Christian church and burial place for Italy's kings and notable artists such as Raphael. It is the best preserved of all ancient Roman buildings, and perhaps the best-preserved building of its age in the world. The Pantheon is the oldest standing domed structure in Rome as well as in continuous use throughout its history. Entry fee to this site is € 2 per person to be paid on site.
Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At:  
Trevi Fountain
Trevi fountain is the largest Baroque fountain in the city. Legend has it that if visitors throw a coin into the fountain, they will be assured a return to Rome. The current interpretation is that two coins will lead to a new romance and three will ensure either a marriage or divorce. Another current version of this legend is that it is lucky to throw three coins with one's right hand over one's left shoulder into the fountain.

Stop At:  
Spanish Steps
The Spanish Steps is where you will find the famous 18th-century winding steps that connect the square below to the French church of Trinita dei Monti above. Below is the early 1600’s Baroque fountain, “Fontana Della Barcaccia”, or “The Fountain of the Old Boat”, a type of shallow boat popular for carrying wine to the port of Ripetta. The unique fountain is credited to Pietro Bernini, the father of the famous Gian Lorenzo Bernini.

Stop At:  
Vatican Museums
After lunch, you will visit the tiniest country in the world, the Vatican. Inside the Vatican Museums, you will be amazed and delighted at the vast collection of masterpieces, including the Raphael Rooms and the Sistine Chapel. The Vatican Museums are located within the walls of the Vatican City and display a vast number of artwork collected by Popes throughout the centuries that date from the early Classical era to the Renaissance. Because the Vatican Museums are so vast and labyrinthine that makes it overwhelming for first time visitors, and possesses such an incredible amount of precious art that is often missed without the guidance of an expert, we highly recommend hiring a private English speaking licensed Vatican Guide to accompany you on a 2 hour tour through the Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel and St Peter's Basilica. Price of Vatican Museums Admission Tickets with no line booked online up to 60 days in advance at 22 Euros per person. Please book your admission tickets for the 2:00 PM time slot and print your voucher at home. Once booked, Tickets are NOT Refundable.
