What to Expect
Rome has fascinated people for thousands of years.

This tour gives you a great introduction to Rome’s most famous monuments. Your English-speaking guide will tell you all about the history of these unique places.
The Colosseum, built more than 2000 years ago, is still one of the major attractions that Rome has to offer. During its glory days, the Colosseum seated about 50,000 people and presented, among others, spectacular gladiatorial contests. Today, you can still marvel at its beautiful architecture and you can dream yourself back in time, to those days when the amphitheatre was filled with the excited voices of thousands of Romans as they watched the gladiators fight.
A Rome Tour is only complete if it includes a visit to the Roman Forum. This plaza had been the vibrant center of Roman life for ages. Today, you can still see the ruins of several ancient buildings surrounding the square. Admire the glorious architecture and listen closely as your guide will explain to you the role of these government buildings.
You will be able to see the famous Palatine Hill from the Roman Forum. This hill is the true birthplace of the city of Rome and has always been part of the center of the city. The ruins of the palaces that were erected there are more than impressive and will certainly be one of the most memorable images that you will keep from this tour.
Follow your guide to the Trevi Fountain, the largest Baroque fountain in the city and one of the most beautiful fountains in the whole world. Completed in 1762, the fountain has for a long time been associated with a wonderful legend. If you throw a coin into the fountain, you are certain to return to Rome.
Your knowledgeable guide will also be able to tell you everything about the famous Pantheon. It is over 2,000 years old, but is still used as a church. Locals and tourists alike are drawn to this magnificent historical building that has a rich spiritual and architectural history.
A trip to the Piazza Navona will be the final highlight of the tour. The square is home to numerous sculptures and architectural landmarks. Here you will again be able to experience the true Roman atmosphere while letting yourself be enchanted by the wonders of the past.
