Rome in a day at a glance
(plus a 1-hour break for lunch)
Rome in a day is a comprehensive tour that will show you all the main attractions of the city. You will enjoy the beauties of the Eternal City through the eyes of a local expert guide! Don’t miss this tour if it is your first time in Rome or if you want to refresh your memories about this city.
You will meet your guide at the meeting point, close to the Spanish Steps. You will start a walking tour that will show you all the highlights of the city centre, including the Trevi Fountain, the Pantheon and Piazza Navona.
After a break for lunch, you will reach the Colosseum. You will get inside the ancient Roman amphitheater with your skip-the-line tickets. The guide will tell you how the gladiators fought in the arena to save their lives, showing you the stands where 80,000 fans asked for blood. After the Colosseum, you will enjoy a pleasant walk through the heart of the ancient city: the Roman Forum, and then you will see the place where emperors built their villas: the Palatine Hill.

- the itinerary is indicative and can be changed in case some monument is inaccessible for restoration;
- even with skip-the-line tickets, expect to wait some minutes to enter the Colosseum, especially during high season; in particular, entrance to the Colosseum depends on the maximum capacity, set in 3000 persons.
Things to bring (and not to)
Having a camera with you is your choice. Someone prefers to immerse in beauty not being distracted by taking pictures/making videos, someone else prefers to build printable memories of his trip. It’s really up to you. Inside the museums included in this tour, pictures and videos are allowed, but the use of a flash or selfie-sticks is prohibited.
Your jackets and bags will be scanned by a metal detector at the Colosseum. Knifes, cutters, multipurpose tools and any sharp object that might represent a danger for the works of art will be seized at the sole discretion of the museum personnel. Large backpacks, tripods, and long umbrellas will have to be left at the entrance and be collected at the exit (this service is free of charge, but we suggest not to bring with you these objects).
Entrance to the Pantheon and any other religious place is subject to restrictions: your clothing must be appropriate and cover your shoulders and knees.
