For many visitors time is the enemy when visiting Rome. Ok, you must see the Colosseum, Vatican Museums and St Peter's Basilica but what about the Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain and the Roman Forum to name just a few?

One of the big advantages of taking a tour is that they are very time efficient, covering a lot of ground quickly.

You won't lose time finding places and you won't miss highlights of an attraction because of lack of information and all too common in Rome, lack of signage and information.

Explore Rome's classical attractions on a tour that combines a little walking with relaxed sightseeing by coach.

The tour is modular in structure so you can choose from just the morning tour or the full-day tour with lunch included.

Start your morning with either a hotel pickup or by meeting your guide near Rome Termini Station.

From this point, your classic Rome tour heads to Rome’s centre storico, the ancient city centre.

Morning tour

The ancient city centre is made up of narrow cobbled lanes so no access for the coach.

Your guide will take you through the best bits taking in the general vibe of the area as well as the not to miss tourist attractions of the Trevi Fountain, Pantheon and lastly Piazza Navona where you join up with the coach again.

Optional lunch

You have the option to include lunch at a restaurant with the tour or you can use the free time to make your own provision.

Afternoon itinerary for full-day tour

In the afternoon by coach and on foot, see the sights of Imperial Rome, including Piazza de Campidoglio on Capitoline Hill, Circus Maximus, and the Church of St Peter in Chains. Finish with a skip-the-line Colosseum tour.
