Tour with us and our English speaking driver will greet you in the port of Civitavecchia directly after disembarkation.

During you journey to the Eternal city (approx. 90 minutes) your driver will discuss with you the area and also the days itinerary. 

Our first stop will be the famous Circus Maximus, an ancient Roman chariot racing stadium, in its time accommodating around 150,000 spectators. We shall then continue to one of the most recognized monuments ... The Colosseum. Here you will have 40/60 minuites free time, if you decide to enter the Colosseum (not obligatory) you must pre-purchase entrance tickets to avoid the lines; We will give you all the information for this. 

On to The Forum of Caesar, the Forum of Trajan and ascending up Capitoline Hill, where we will be able to admire the splendid panorama of the Roman Forum. 

Next stop is Venezia Square, "Altar of the Nation" also known as "The Wedding Cake", Spanish Steps & the newly renovated Trevi Fountain, where there is an age old tradition of throwing a coin into the fountain, guaranteeing your return to Rome. After visiting the Trevi fountain we suggest a short break in Navona Square where the famous "Fountain of Four Rivers", by Bernini, stands in the centre of the square. 

At this point you will probably want to stop for lunch. Your driver will present to you the following options: a snack in Campo dei Fiori, a large square with a nice market with lots of Cafes or a typical lunch in a neighbourhood restaurant (all at your expense). After lunch your tour of the Vatican will begin, the moment you've been waiting for…

This tour INCLUDES an authorised guide in the Vatican museums and Sistine Chapel, YOU MUST pre-booking entrance tickets to skip waiting in the long line (which can last up to two hours!) we will advise you with this process.

The tour in the Vatican museums is private and led by articulate and enthusiastic tour guide. Their wit and knowledge make the labyrinth of the Vatican City, the smallest country in the world, a cinch to visit.

After St. Peter's, time permitting, free time to take some pictures of the square, St. Peters Basilica and shop for souvenirs.
