Private Tour: Ancient Rome by Car

    What to Expect
    Start your day with a pickup from your Rome hotel. The start time is up to you, but early morning pickups are recommended to avoid the crowds that appear later in the day.

    With your driver-guide, you’ll travel into the heart of Ancient Rome to see the Colosseum. Listen to your guide to learn about the famous amphitheater and the gruesome gladiator battles that took place inside its walls. If you want to head in, pay your entrance fee direct, and spend 45 minutes exploring on your own.

    Your next stop is the Roman catacombs, a tangle of tunnels beneath the city where Rome’s early Christians buried their dead. Head underground to explore some of them on a 45-minute guided tour.

    Back above ground, you’ll visit the Appian Way, the ancient Roman road that once connected the capital to the coast. It’s believed to be one of the first roads built by human hands. Continue to Circus Maximus where the Romans raced chariots, and gaze at what’s left of it as you take in views of Palatine Hill. 

    Hear tips for places to eat lunch, and then resume your tour of the city. Visit the Pantheon, and Spanish Steps, then stop to throw a coin in the Trevi Fountain for luck.

    Your tour finishes with a hotel drop-off.

    We were short on time in Rome, but Antonio got us to all the places we wanted. We saved a lot of wasted time and we really good our moneys worth from the short time spent with him. If you are short on time, this company is recommended.

    Luca and team are super prompt and responsive - he worked with me to come up with a good itinerary for my family (elder parents who can't walk too much and small children) in order to cover as much ground as possible on a private tour. I really appreciated the thoughtfulness
