Classic private walking tour in one day. Check out also the driven tour version.
Full day tour of Rome (approx 7 hours including lunch break). Morning- Colosseum, Roman Forum, Pantheon. Afternoon-Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel, St. Peter's Basilica. No waiting in line. Steady but rewarding walking tour, aimed to accommodate those with little time, great for travelers not wishing to be part of hectic bus-tours and yet willing to see most of the sites in Rome in one day.
We'll travel like Romans do - public buses, metro or taxi.
So that we can make the most of our time, we meet just by the Colosseum Subway. We'll visit the ancient city first, then after a lunch break we'll reach the Vatican city area by taxi. We'll visit the Sistine Chapel/St. Peter's Basilica. REMEMBER NO TOPS, SLEEVELESS SHIRTS, NO SHORTS.
At the end of the tour you'll be walked to ROMA SAN PIETRO train station or other location. You'll be back on time for your next destination. Note this tour is not offered on Sundays.
I'll meet you at Roma Ostiense train station or Colosseum subway. (No time for hotel pick up). We'll visit the COLOSSEUM first, ROMAN FORUM, and PANTHEON. After a lunch break we'll reach the Vatican City area by bus or by Taxi. We'll visit the SISTINE CHAPEL and S. PETER'S basilica. if needed at the end of the tour you'll be walked to Roma San Pietro train station. You'll be back on time for your next destination.

Fabio is an art historian and art curator - who else would you want as your guide around the Colosseum and Vatican? Our family of eight ranging in age from 19 to 50+ years were all enthralled by his engaging tour of these vast areas. His highlights were excellent! And his English was perfect - also with a great sense of humour! The use of audio phones certainly made it easier in the crowds to hear everything he said. A well- organised tour of complex sites - time flew and we learned so much!
