Highlights of this Rome Private Tour:

The Forum: Your private English-speaking tour guide in Rome will bring the relics of the ancient Roman forum, dating back to 6th century BC, to life as you traipse through the ruins of numerous temples, basilicas, palaces, arches and shops. The first Roman civilization began here, in turn becoming the administrative and commercial center of ancient Rome.  Other sites of Ancient Rome here include Arch of Constantine and Piazza del Campidoglio, designed by Michelangelo.

The Colosseum: This Rome private tour also features the Colosseum, the entertainment center of ancient Rome. Here, 50,000 people gathered to watch gory gladiator contests.  You will hear about amazing 450 years of history here, and get a sense of how Romans celebrated the best and the worst of their society, influenced by the emperors’ overwhelming powers.

You should have enough time to see the Trevi fountain and the Spanish Steps on your own.  Your excellent driver and Rome tour guide will work together to deliver an unforgettable tour of Rome.

You will be on your own while you pop into the Pantheon and while exploring Piazza Navona. 

Pantheon, first erected by Marcus Agrippa in 27 B.C. and also rebuilt by Emperor Hadrian as a temple to the all the gods of Ancient Rome in 2 A.D. It was the largest dome in the world until the 1400’s when the cathedral in Florence was built. Pictured on the right.

Piazza Navona, with beautiful 17th-century fountains built by Bernini, is a magnificent plaza built on the site of a Roman Circus, where chariot races once took place.
