Visiting Rome for the first time? Then you don’t want to miss this private Rome day tour, where the secrets of the Eternal City are unveiled.
Your English tour driver will welcome you at your dock in Rome-Civitavecchia at 8:00am, to discover the beauty on this private Rome day tour.
During your private Rome day tour, if you have special requests or interests, your tour driver will be happy to honor them.
Furthermore, you’ll be able to visit and understand the Colosseum, the Roman Forum, Piazza Venezia ( also known as the wedding cake monument & Mussolini’s balcony), the Capitoline hill, the Palatine hill, the Circus Maximus, the Trevi Fountain, Pantheon, and the Spanish Steps.
You will also drive by several other attractions that your tour driver will point out to you, such as the Via Veneto, the Castle of St. Angelo and its bridge, the Italian Senate, the Marble Foot and Cat Street (Roman Curiosity), Trajan’s Column, Trajan’s Market, The Maps of the Empire, Arch of Constantine, Marcus Aurelius’s Column, Parliament and Council of Ministers, St. Nicholas in Chains, temples of Apollo, Vesta and Janus, and Quirinal Palace.
At some point, you will stop for lunch, so you can choose to have a relaxing, typical Roman lunch in a local, not too touristy restaurant or a quick lunch break in a coffee shop. Your driver will be happy to make some suggestions, because he’s a local. So he knows the best restaurants in town, of course.
Finally, you will drive to the Vatican City and stop at St. Peter’s Basilica, the largest church in the world.
Take some time to admire Michelangelo’s “Pieta” and the beautiful Bernini Pulpit.
*Saint Peter’s Basilica is closed on Sundays and other Christian fesitivities, but you can visit the Basilica from the outside.
Of course, your tour driver is entirely flexible – if there is a special place that you want to see, just let him know! We will depart from Rome in order to be back at the dock beside your cruise ship at around 5.00pm.
This Rome day tour length is approximately 9 hours in total and is conducted by an English-speaking tour driver that will not enter sites but drive you around and show you places, pointing out things while explaining what they are, as well as stopping at the places that require a visit and helping you access them.
