Rome: Sightseeing at Sunrise Walking Tour

2. Rome: Sightseeing at Sunrise Walking Tour

Start your walking tour at the Spanish Steps, then go to the Trevi Fountain. Walk through the tiny ancient streets that lead to Piazza Venezia, then continue your adventure through the medieval neighborhoods on the way to Torre Argentina - the site of Julius Caesar's murder. Gaze in awe at the majesty of the Pantheon, before enjoying a delicious Italian breakfast of coffee, orange juice, and a pastry of your choice. Sip your cappuccino while sitting in beautiful Piazza della Rotonda with the Pantheon right in front of you to truly get a taste of La Dolce Vita. End the tour in one of Rome's most famous squares: Piazza Navona where you can admire the ancient Stadium of Domitian. Cover Rome's most beautiful sites in the early morning hours, when the city's bustling traffic of locals and tourists alike is not yet zooming through the streets and crowding your view. Witness these incredible monuments just as the sun rises, meaning you will basically be alone to enjoy them as they glisten in the splendor of sunrise. Travel in an intimate small group of only 6 other people led by an expert local guide. Ask all the questions you want, go off the beaten path, and truly get to know the Eternal City as it is meant to be known.

Rome: Hot-Air Balloon Flight over the Tiber Valley

3. Rome: Hot-Air Balloon Flight over the Tiber Valley

Travel just 37 miles (60 km) outside of Rome to the small town of Magliano Sabina located on the Via Tiberina. Meet your pilot to transfer to the nearby launch site for a pre-flight briefing. If you choose, you can assist with the balloon inflation. Once the balloon is inflated, the pilot will welcome you onboard the 'lighter than air' flight. As you ascend into the air, enjoy 360-degree panoramic views and get bird's eye photo opportunities of the spectacular scenery. The maximum height you will ascend to is 1,500 feet (500 meters) where the temperature is almost the same as on the ground. The ground crew will be tracking your flight as you go and will be waiting with the Jeep transfer to take you back to Magliano Sabina after your landing. When you land, after a 40-60-minute flight, toast your adventure with local DOC wines, salami, and cheese. Your pilot will sign your First Flight Certificate as a souvenir of your day.

Rome always has its charm, but Piazza Navona, San Pietro, and Fontana di Trevi at sun up provoke unique emotions that you must experience at least once in your life. Remember to bring a coin, you will need one to toss into the Fontana di Trevi to make sure one day you will return to Rome!

Beautiful experience at dawn on a Sunday morning. As soon as the hot air balloon broke away from the ground, it seemed to live in an almost surreal reality, time stopped and everything became magic ... Wonderful landscapes and enchanted atmosphere. All the fears that had made me hesitant for days also dissolved. Great credit also goes to Ivan and Elisa, truly exquisite people. Straconsiglio.

A fun way to see Rome before it wakes up with excellent guide Matteo. Saw all the sights and delicious coffee and croissant stop. Thoroughly recommended

Laura was great. Although getting up to early wasn’t fun it was truly worth it to see everything with so many less people. Picture taking was a dream

Super! Rome in the morning without tourists was great!
