• Your first stop - the Colosseum, it is probably the most famous landmark in Rome.  Built in the 1st century AD, this great arena could seat 45,000 spectators and was the largest Roman amphitheater in the world.   Your private driver will give a brief explanation and history, you will get a chance to go in and explore on your own.  more about the Colosseum »

 

• Trevi Fountain - (Following the Coliseum) via Aventine Hill and Piazza Venezia, where you'll stop to take a look at the Monument to Victor Emmanuel II and Mussolini's balcony.  Remember that at the Trevi fountain stop, make sure you have a couple of coins with you to throw in the fountain as legend has it that you will definitely return back to Rome.

 

• The Pantheon - widely praised for its feats of architecture and concept of space.   It is a magnificent ancient temple in Rome that was later converted into the church of Santa Maria ad Martyres.  more about the Pantheon »

 

• Piazza di Spagna, or Spanish Steps - spend a short time before heading to the Borghese Gardens to see the panorama of Rome and the Vatican from the Pincio Terrace

 

• Your final stop of the morning - the famous Piazza Navona, one of the most beautiful in Rome.

 

Lunch time - Some point of the Tour you may wish to stop for something to eat.  Maybe a snack in Piazza Navona or some pizza in the cafeteria of the Vatican Museums, or a typical lunch in a little neighborhood restaurant (all at your cost).
 

After lunch your driver will take you to the Vatican city you may even wish to change the schedule and visit the Vatican in the morning, please feel the flexibility of discussing it with your driver.

 

• Tour of the Vatican City -  The Vatican Museums are enormous, about 1,500 rooms, but you will only see the best parts on your way to the Sistine Chapel. Normally this visit includes the Cortile della Pigna, Belvedere, Pio Clementino Museum, the Gallery of Candelabra, the Gallery of Tapestries, the Gallery of Maps, and Raphael's Rooms. Because of the way the traffic inside the Museums is regulated, at sometimes certain portions are closed off, so please note that the itinerary can change from time to time. Of course, you will end at the Sistine Chapel!

From the Sistine you'll go directly to St. Peter's Basilica, where you will see the Pietà by Michelangelo and other fantastic masterpieces by Bernini and Canova. After St. Peter's you may want to take some free time to take pictures of the square, shop for souvenirs and/or take a drink and relax.  


Your driver will meet up with you again and return you to the port of call together with a warm roman salutation!
