Discover highlights of Rome with a qualified guide


A fullday walking tour in the History, perfect as an introduction to Rome.
We'll start with a skip the line visit of the Colosseum, the amphitheater, and the Roman Forum, the main plaza, where in Ancient Times senators and plebeians gathered.
After a slice of thin-crust pizza or some good carbonara pasta (and why not, a glass of wine!) we'll walk further to admire the best fountains and plazas of Rome.
Be ready to trow a coin in the Trevi Fountain, enjoy a gelato and be amazed by the Pantheon.
We'll end in the most spectacular "piazza" of Rome, Piazza Navona, home of the Bernini masterpiece: the Fountain of the Four Rivers.

TIPS for a perfect visit:
- Only small backpacks or handbags allowed in the Colosseum
- Wear comfortably shoes
- Bring a bottle of water (you can refill during the tour)

IMPORTANT:
-->We'll visit the Colosseum at 8. 30 am or 3 pm to minimize the queue at the entrance for the security checkpoint

A Recent Review of this tour

Our tour today was a major hit. I had seen the historic sites in Rome before but never received the full explanation of events, causes and outcomes as was provided by our exceptional and qualified guide, Marisa. What a great joy to have the sites brought alive by a knowledgeable archeologist and delightful person.
