What you'll do

Planning to stay in Rome for just a day and want to have every single hour count? Or maybe you are looking for a tour that takes you into the history, beauty and food culture of one of the most spectacular cities in the world?

Then this experience is the perfect choice for you.

Feel like the first visitor to Rome and experience this magnificent city in the same place that the first Romans did thousands and thousands of years ago.

Beginning in the ancient city, we will start from Piazza di Popolo and walk between the Spanish Steps and the Baroque squares, the Trevi Fountain, and Renaissance fountains towards the one and only, The Pantheon. Afterwards you will enjoy the authentic Roman street food-suppli, admiring Bernini's masterpiece, Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi in Piazza Navona. The taste of homemade gelato will enhance your experience at Largo Argentina, the place where the great Julius Caesar was killed.

The splendid view of Piazza Venezia that opens up to the ancient Imperial Forums, will function like a time machine bringing you back two thousand years in the history of Rome. Finally, when you least expect it, one of the new seven wonders of the world, the Colosseum, will open up right in front of you.
This will be the perfect time to sit and enjoy a glass of excellent Italian wine or aperol spritz, overlooking the Colosseum and the Arch of Constantine.
