Full description
With an experienced and knowledgeable guide and skip-the-line access, tick off most of the Rome’s must-see sights in just 4 hours, including the Colosseum, Roman Forum, Piazza Venezia, Trevi Fountain, Pantheon, and Piazza Navona. Groups are a maximum of 20 people and the tours move at a comfortable pace so everyone from grandma to the grand kids can discover the city stress-free.

The tour begins at Rome’s most iconic landmark and the site of gruesome gladiatorial contests and dramatic public spectacles: the Colosseum. Here, skip the lines and head straight inside to learn more about the largest amphitheater ever built. Discover how this awe-inspiring structure got its name and see where emperors sat and watched the bloodshed unfold.

After about an hour, jump next door to the Palatine Hill and Roman Forum. The verdant Palatine Hill offers some of the most stunning views of the city and is the most famous of Rome’s 7 hills. It’s also said to be where the myth of Romulus and Remus was born. Head downhill to the heart of ancient Rome, the Forum. Filled with temples, government buildings and marketplaces, this was once the liveliest place in Rome.

In the second half of the tour, delve further into the Historic Center, starting with Piazza Venezia. Several of Rome’s most important streets converge at this hectic intersection, which is towered over by the enormous Altare della Patria, a monument to the first king of Italy. Be sure to bring a coin with you because the next stop is the beautiful, Baroque Trevi Fountain. Throw a coin in its rippling waters and, according to legend, you’ll secure your return to the Eternal City. 

This gorgeous white Travertine fountain is just as magical in real life as on the big screen in films such as Roman Holiday and La Dolce Vita. From there, wind through cobbled streets until reaching the exceptionally well-preserved Pantheon. Almost 2,000 years old, it was built as a temple to “all the gods” and is an impressive feat of engineering — its roof remains the largest unreinforced concrete dome in the world.
