What to expect

Your tour starts in the middle of it all, as your friendly guide will be waiting for you right outside the Metro Stop Colosseo. Yep, you guessed right, first stop: The magnificent Colosseum! That’s just the beginning of the journey which that you will see walking through the Forum to the Piazza Venezia and the controversial Vittorian. Making your way through the streets of Rome, you’ll emerge at the top of the Spanish Steps to one of the best views of the Eternal City.

The sights only get more iconic from here; next up is the Trevi Fountain, where your guide will teach you how to throw your coin over your shoulder (or maybe two?); Piazza Navona where you’ll learn all about Bernini, Rome’s version of Michelangelo; and the Pantheon, which for many visitors is the most incredible spot in the entire city.

After a short break at one of Rome’s best and oldest gelaterias, Make our way to the Castelo di Sant'Angelo. There, looming in the distance, you’ll see the mother of all churches: Saint Peter’s Basilica, the biggest church in the world within the smallest country in the world.

From here the tour will end, or you can select the optional Vatican Museums tour to continue with your guide inside! Begin your tour of the Vatican Museums with a fully-licensed guide, who will teach you all the legends, history and curiosities of this enigmatic place. Best of all: you’ll skip-the-line, giving you maximum time in the museum!
