Full description
Avoid the hassle of traveling around the crowded capital city on a private tour that takes you to Rome's top highlights in a single day. Enjoy the convenience and luxury of having your own private vehicle and English-speaking driver-guide. Learn about the historical and archaeological background of the places you are about to visit as you drive and go in on your own once you arrive. While your driver is not permitted to enter the sites with you, they will be sure to provide you enough with information that you can enjoy an informed visit. 

After pickup from your hotel in the morning, head to the Colosseum and the Roman Forum, centers of ancient Roman public life. Then visit Capitoline Hill, one of the seven famous hills of Rome, and see St. Peter in Chains, a basilica that is home to Michelangelo’s Moses sculpture.

Jump forward in time to Rome's famous Baroque-era sights with stops at Trevi Fountain, Piazza Navona, and the Spanish Steps. Get into the spirit of “La Dolce Vita” as your driver-guide takes you to Piazza Venezia and Campo dei Fiori where you can peek into local artisan shops. End your day with a visit to Circus Maximus and Aventine Hill. Peek through the famous Aventine keyhole for a picture-perfect view of St. Peter's Basilica in miniature. 

Ask your driver for local restaurant recommendations and stop for lunch (at your own expense). Your seven hour private tour concludes around 4 pm at your hotel or any centrally-located destination in Rome where you wish to be dropped off.

If you wish to further optimize your time in Rome, add on an additional visit to the Vatican, the smallest state in the world. Your Vatican visit will take place at the beginning of your day before making the stops on the standard private tour (except on Wednesdays when the Pope holds a private audience). After being dropped off by your driver, find your way along the impressive city walls to the main entrance of the Vatican Museums where you will meet a professional private guide who will lead you on a three-hour Vatican tour.
