Full description
Join this two day private sightseeing and historical tour to discover the Eternal City. The first day you will be picked up at 9:00 AM from your hotel in Rome, though the exact departure time may vary—final program will be sent to you via email a few days before the tour. Your private driver will bring you away from the usual tourist itineraries to capture the unforgettable sensual atmospheres of charming squares like Spanish Steps, Piazza Navona and Santa Maria della Pace. You will then appreciate the Baroque masterpiece, the Trevi Fountain, the silent flow of the Tiber River and the beautiful Pantheon. Your promenade will continue to Emperor Hadrian’s Mausoleum and legendary Ponte Sant'Angelo to enjoy a fantastic sight of the Castello Sant'Angelo. After a 1-hour break for lunch (not included) you will have a skip-the-line private tour in the Vatican Museum. Here you will see the art collected by Popes throughout the centuries, the Gallery of Maps with views of the Vatican Gardens, the Tapestry Gallery and eventually, the Sistine Chapel painted by the Renaissance genius, Michelangelo. Then you will admire the immense Basilica and Square of St. Peter, the sublime and touching Pietà, Bernini‘s glorious and mystical baroque Canopy, and the burial-site of St. Peter with the monumental tombs of Popes.

The second day you will be picked up at 9:00 AM and you will embark on a 45-minute tour of the the mysterious catacombs, situated along the old Appian Way, some 93 miles (150km) of underground galleries used as cemeteries by early Christians under Roman persecutions. After the tour you will have a small panoramic tour to reach Colosseum. After 1-hour an half break for lunch (not included) you will have a private skip-the-line tour in the symbol of the Ancient Roman world, the Colosseum. Discover the construction techniques invented by the Romans, and hear about the skills of the gladiators, and the violent exotic animal fights. Afterwards, explore the Palatine Hill, residence of the Roman Emperors, and the Roman Forum, centre of political, religious and commercial life at that time. You will see the old Senate House, Temple of Vesta, Triumphal Arches of Constantine, Titus and Septimius Severus.
