Classic & Imperial Rome Full Day Tour
- Take in the sights of Rome’s historic center on a pleasant guided stroll
- Enjoy lunch at a traditional Roman restaurant
- Visit the Colosseum and the Roman Forum
In the morning the tour begins at Piazza della Repubblica. Your local guide will take you on a pleasant stroll through the historical center, where you can admire the Trevi Fountain, Bernini’s Palazzo di Montecitorio, Piazza Navona, and other sites.
The bus stops adjacent to Vatican City so that you can admire St. Peter's Square while listening to your guide’s commentary on the Basilica. You’ll then have the chance to explore this magnificent church on your own and admire masterpieces such as Michelangelo's Pietà and Bernini's bronze canopy before re-boarding the bus.
You’ll stop at a local restaurant where you’ll enjoy a typical Italian lunch and a break before you head off with your guide for the afternoon tour.
This part of the tour begins at Piazza Venezia and continues on to the Michelangelo-designed Piazza del Campidoglio. From here there are terrific views of the Roman Forum. You’ll then visit the Colosseum and tour the interior. This is the largest arena constructed in the Roman Empire.
You’ll travel to the Circus Maximus by coach to see the Pyramid of Caius Cestius, before finally arriving at the Basilica San Pietro in Vincoli, where you’ll see the famous Moses statue by Michelangelo.
