What to expect

Do you only have a couple of days in Rome? To make the most of your stay, this Rome walking tour covers all the sights you absolutely have to see, including the Colosseum, Pantheon, Trevi Fountain and more! With skip-the-line access and a small size, you won’t have to waste precious time in line or straining to hear your guide.

MORNING TOUR Your tour will start with the legendary Colosseum. By skipping the long lines, you’ll have immediate access to this magnificent structure where your expert guide will tell you the history and will point out the details that bring this incredible structure to life. Your group will then move on to the Roman Forum, once the political and social center of Ancient Rome.

Stroll down the same road once tread by the feet of victorious Roman armies and see the remains of the banks, temples and homes. You’ll climb the Palatine Hill to visit the location where a wolf mother raised Remus and Romulus, the legendary founding bothers of Rome. Admire views that stretch out below your eyes, as far as St. Peter’s Basilica. Your well-deserved lunch break will be in the historical city center.

*Lunch is not included in the price of your tour, but your guide will be happy to recommend a spot. Or you could just follow your nose as it guides you to one of the city’s countless trattorias or pizzerias. Soak up the atmosphere before catching the metro to the next part of your journey, an adventure through the best of modern Rome.

AFTERNOON TOUR For the second half of your walking tour, you’ll walk along the picturesque streets and piazzas of the city, seeing the best-known spots – from the Spanish Steps to the Trevi Fountain, the Pantheon and splendid Piazza Navona with its incredible Bernini fountain. Your guide will bring all the sites to life with the stories and myths of the monuments that you will not hear on other tours.

*You'll have time to take a coffee break along the way to have a famous Italian espresso. Join this Rome in one-day tour for a true taste of Rome that will leave you hungry for more.
