EXTENDED TOUR DESCRIPTION

EXPLORE THE COLOSSEUM WITH AN EXPERT GUIDE – AND NO LINES!

You’ll begin your day as Rome did: With the ancient world. At an overlook of the Roman Forum, learn how the little-city-that-could became the heart of a vast empire, spotting the Senate and the Temple of the Vestal Virgins, and hearing the incredible stories behind the sites.

Then skip long general entrance lines to get inside the Colosseum. With your expert guide on hand, you’ll discover what gruesome entertainment these ancients enjoyed – from gladiator fights to the execution of the first Christians and even mock sea battles! With our handpicked guide on-hand to bring this ancient amphitheater to life, you can be sure that you’re getting a true local insight on your Rome in a Day tour.

DISCOVER HISTORY AND ART IN THE HISTORIC CENTER.

By including a walking tour of the historical center on your Rome city tour, you’ll experience the Pantheon, a 1,900-year-old temple that’s inspired everything from the U.S. Capitol to St. Peter’s Basilica. You’ll also explore the other side of Rome, the Rome of Audrey Hepburn and Federico Fellini, piazzas and fountains, gelato and photo ops. You’ll see the world-famous Trevi Fountain, where Fellini’s lovers cavorted in ‘La Dolce Vita’ and beautiful Piazza Navona, home to Bernini's Fountain of Four Rivers.

As an extra bonus, you’ll enjoy a refreshing Italian gelato to eat as we stroll, just as the Italians do. Don’t resist; after all, it’s on us! Consider it part of your welcome to Rome.

SEE THE BEST OF THE VATICAN MUSEUMS, SISTINE CHAPEL & ST. PETER’S BASILICA.

Let’s not forget Vatican City. As at the Colosseum, we’ll skip long general entrance lines for our Vatican tour, ensuring that you get the best from your time with us. Once inside you’ll tour the best of the Vatican collection with your expert guide, visiting the Raphael Rooms, ancient sculpture galleries and the stunning Hellenistic ‘Laocoön’. The Vatican Museums can be overwhelming, with nine miles of art, sculpture, tapestries, maps and relics contained within, not to mention Michelangelo’s frescos in the Sistine Chapel. We’ve chosen the best for your three-hour visit, giving you a broad view of the collection as well as its most famous works.

You’ll end your Rome in a Day experience in the Sistine Chapel, with the option to spend more time inside the breathtaking chapel and Vatican Museums, or to leave the Sistine Chapel with your guide and gain direct access to St. Peter's Basilica with skip the line entrance after your tour. Once in St. Peter's Basilica, your guide will leave you alone to explore the Basilica on your own, visit the Papal Crypts, or even climb the dome to the highest manmade point in Rome.

Don’t waste any time standing in line. Instead, see exactly what you need to see, get the best and most entertaining stories behind it all, and get past the normal lines with the special entrance we’ve already pre-booked for you. It’s the only way to make the most of your time in Rome! See, we promised you’d be able to pack it all in, while still letting travel be what it should be – fun!

A well structured walking tour that takes in all the highlights and leaves you with time to do your own exploring afterwards. Our guide Massimiliano was very well informed. Would recommend if you only have a short time in Rome.
The Tour had just the right amount of sights information, etc. Francesco was a fantastic guide, keeping the tour on track, for what was a busy day, as well he somehow seemed to address our personal questions and queries. I couldn't rate him highly enough, fantastic!

Luigi was an excellent guide; we had a great day touring Rome. I probably would have preferred a little less time in the Vatican in exchange for seeing something else, but overall it was terrific.

I had the absolute B E S T time of my life doing this tour. Definitely would use Walks of Italy again. I came to Italy alone and I met some of the most amazing people on this tour and now we're friends!
The tour is very long, but so informative! We never would have been able to see all of those sites and get all of that information in one day by ourselves. Definitely worth the money to not have to worry about all the details or wait in long lines.
This was amazing and Uta, our tour guide, was fantastic.
Camilla was great! Loved to hear her opinions and thoughts, not just a memorized script. Highly recommend Walks of Italy to everyone.
Great tour and great guide (Camilla).
Excellent tour!
Fabrizio was excellent. Non stop commentary and far from being someone with a script, fabrizio had deep knowledge of both Roman and Greek history which gave us rich insights and brought it all to life. The radio ear pieces are a must. Some were faulty but luckily there were spares. 100% satisfied!
Luigi was terrific, told us enough without having to much overload. The best thing I liked was that we only had a small group, did other tours during my travels and the group size was terrible 35 people, always waiting around with walks the smaller group was much better
Vanessa was amazing, knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating to all the tourist in our group. She explained all our questions and inquiries, very patient and thorough!
Luigi was informative and a great guide. We enjoyed the tour; saw and learned lots.
Our guide was excellent. Great experience with this tour
Maria Teresa was an outstanding guide/teacher: knowledgeable, considerate, enthusiastic. My husband and I had very little time in Rome, and we would not have truly appreciated the wonders of that beautiful city without the chance to see it through her eyes. I cannot recommend her highly enough!
Our experience was wonderful and we learned so much!
Great tour.. Our guide was a wealth of knowledge. We had our two kids with us 12 & 14 and they loved it!

Max was excellent. Knowledgeable, with passion for his subject. Very satisfied!
Our favorite tour in italy. The pace was very easy. She never stop talking. And answered all the questions asked by the group as well as answered questions before we could even ask. The tour is very worth the price.
Fabrizio was very knowledgeable about everything he showed us, and was very enthusiastic while showing us around. He has great energy and kept our imagination alive while explaining the great sites we were experiencing.
Luciana was an amazing guide. Her fascinating facts were interspersed with such wit and wisdom. She was a total delight to listen to and I would definitely listen to her again
Our guide was Elena Fabregas (hope I got her entire name right) but she's an awesome guide. Learned a lot from her. Very patient, knowledgeable and overall great personality, which made the tour interesting (and not boring)
Wonderful tour! Uta is very knowledgeable, it was a great way to see lots of the most impressive parts of Rome if you have a short time. It was a very long day, but we had a great time!

Excellent tour, great guide...
Great tour and Uta was great host !!

Absolutely fantastic tour and great guide! Loved every minute of it
Mr T was excellent and I will recommend this tour and particularly Mr T to anyone. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and learned a huge amount. One small suggestion though, it would be useful to give participants a map with the route marked so they can revisit locations at a future date.
Our guide was the best. He took time and wsd so informative. I would go on any tour with him. He was pactient with my 6 year old.
We really enjoyed being guided by Enza! Excellent.

The guide was knowledgeable and wonderful!
We had a wonderful time and Elena was magnificent. We would recommend this tour and guide to any one.
Lucia was very knowledgeable and imparted this to all in an interesting way so that it stuck rather than just hearing it and it not going in . Highly recommend the tour
Our tour guide was absolutely wonderful! She was very kind and knowledgeable!
We had a wonderful day with Mariana. She was informative, kind and really knew how to maneuver us around the sometimes crowded spaces. She was a delight and I have recommended Walks of Italy to others and will continue to do so.
Wonderful tour experience! Our guide was first-rate!
Our guide Stefan was AMAZING! His humor was contagious and we learned so much! It was one of the best tours we've ever done! Thank you, Stefan, for taking your time and make us all enjoy every second of this tour!!!
Our guide, Alessia was WONDERFUL. It was a lot to cover in one day, and I don't know how we would have done it without her. She was very knowledgeable, friendly, patient, gave great recommendations, offered to take photos of us, and always answered questions. Thank you for a great day in Rome!
Thoroughly enjoyed the walk and the pace was great. It was much better than just roaming around with the hit or miss concept.
Giovanni was personable and really did a good job!
Mariana is so good at what she does and is a true pro! Her enthusiasm triggers ours. She is also extremely attentive to details involving her goup's comfort and safety. Will definitely recommend this tour.
our guide was excellent. well done and would use you again for our next trip to Rome.. thanks

Angela was fantastic! She had so much knowledge of history and culture and she moved us through the crowds very effectively.
Uta was a fantastic guide! VERY knowledgeable, friendly, and interesting. Her pace was just right and she also made us laugh along the way too! Overall, we had a spectacular day!!
Excellent tour and great tour guide as well. The day was packed and the gelato and lunch breaks came at the right time. I would have liked to enter the roman forum site instead of just viewing if time allowed.
She was very caring and made sure everyone understands what she says. So incredibly smart, there is no way on earth we could have gathered this amount of knowledge for these few hours if it wasn't for her. Thank you!
Excellent tour. What a great way to spend a day in Rome. Tour guide was fabulous and incredibly informative.
Our guide was amazing! He was very enthusiastic about providing us with an incredible experience!
Excellent Tours. The Rome in a Day tour is a long day but I was very well looked after by the walks of Italy. A very informative and enjoyable day overall. Dario is a wonderful guide also, I couldn't recommend him highly enough.
We enjoyed our tour of Rome very much. Andrea was very knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend Walks of Italy Tour to friends. Thank you!
Crutched 10 miles. Well worth it. Thanks Andrea
great tour , great tour guid (Elenna ) she is the best :)
Enza was wonderful! We were very impressed with her extensive knowledge and how much we were able to cover in the tour. We learned more about Rome and the Vatican in a day than we ever imagined possible.
Luigi made our experience in Rome a fantastic experience !! He made a long day walking through Rome seemed to short.☺ Many Thanks,
Luciana was an amazing guide! She was very knowledgeable & personable & the experience was well worthwhile!

Our guide Camilla was wonderfully informative and entertaining. This was an excellently planned tour and a wonderful introduction to the city.Also appreciated the gelato stop. Many thanks, Beryl Bardsley.
Uta was an amazing host! She was so very knowledgeable, kind, funny and charming. Would suggest this tour 100%.
Guide was very knowledgeable and was able to give us an excellent tout despite the huge Easter holida day crowds.
Our guide was amazing! She knew so much information about every sight we visited as well as things along the way! I will definitely recommend this tour in the future!
This tour was excellent. She is extremely knowledgeable and friendly. One of the highlights of the Italy experience !!
Dario was wonderful and full of knowledge. He provided the extra-touch we were hoping for with a private tour. He went at a speed that suited our family aged 16 to 67. We definitely recommend the tour.
Jowita was our guide. She was excellent! So knowledgeable and personable. I was very pleased with her and the tour over all! I would highly recommend to friends and family!
I found this was the easiest way to tour Rome. Quick entry into every site along with a fantastic friendly and informative tour guide. I would highly recommend this tour!
Luciana was an excellent guide with an amazing wealth of knowledge. There was not a question asked that she couldn't answer. I would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone. Full marks all round.
Uta was very knowledgable in the cultural and history of Rome and Vatican. We had such a wonderful time listening and talking to her; will definitely recommended Uta and walks if Italy to my friends and family :) thanks for the memories
Cecilia was the best! We could not have asked for a more informative and patient tour guide. We will be recommending to our friends traveling to Rome and especially Cecilia!! Please let her know. Thank you!
Julietta was fantastic!
Excellent! Rosa was informative and enthusiastic!
Vincenzo was a very knowledgeable guide.
Our only issue was not understanding the Vatican tour took until 4:30 PM. Sadly, we had to opt out of that because we had to depart for our cruise ship at 3 PM. That said, the tour and guide were both excellent, thank you.
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour. Giovanni was outstanding so friendly and shared his immense knowledge with us. Would have appreciated being able to go down into the colosseum and seeing the Roman forum properly even from the outside but none the less we still enjoyed the experience
Giovanni was excellent with amazing details. His passion about the history of Rome became contagious. I was extremely satisfied with Walksofitaly and have already recommended it to my friends. There was 6 in my family, ages ranging from 27-61, and we all loved the tour. Thank you!
The tour was absolutely excellent. Giovanni was superb - extremely knowledgeable, funny and friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole tour and felt as though we really did get to see the 'best of Rome' while learning so much. Thanks very much!
The best guide i ever have
Loved our walking tour! We learned so much from our knowledgeable guide. We saw all the major sites and got to skip all of the lines to get in! Would recommend to anyone, especially if your time is limited and you need to see a lot quickly!
We greatly enjoyed our time with David! He was very knowledgable and was a great guide!!
Luigi was a fantastic guide. Very friendly and knowledgeable. Would recommend this tour company to anyone.
I missed the tour guides name but she was great. I like that an I-Pad was used to show things.
Our guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Really enjoyed the tour and getting VIP access to attractions.
Luigi was very knowledgable and entertaining the entire day, my husband and I enjoyed the trip greatly and so happy we found Walks of Italy!
David was very knowledgeable and entertaining. The entire group really enjoyed the tour, we were sad he was only there for the Ancient Rome bit! Would highly recommend him.
An incredible insight into Rome and it's layers of history. Both David and Toni gave us their endless amount of knowledge of Roma and the Vatican. Thank you for sharing one of Europes great treasures with us. A fantastic tour to be part of.
We were on the pizza making tour. Josef was wonderful. We loved the shops we visited and the things we learned. wished I had taken this tour the first day I was in Rome
The tour was fantastic. Uta, our tour guide, was so informative. We had a smail group of 11 and we really enjoyed ourselves. Rome was amazing.
Cecilia was an excellent tour guide. She was informative and knowledgeable about Rome history.
Terrific guided tour; both guides were knowledgeable and gracious.

All tours were excellent and sites amazing. So glad to do tours as we learned alot on them that we otherwise would not have known. Great to skip the lines!
All four tour guides were excellent, well grounded in history and the culture of the area. Really liked the Florence Food Tour...something different.
Fantastic tour ...Vincenzo for the morning tour and Camilla for the afternoon. Both guides were fantastic. would definately recommend your company to my friends
This tour was wonderful. Our guide for the Colosseum and city highlights was personable, friendly, and engaging. A wonderful host! The Vatican tour host was well informed and very capable. A great tour, which we would highly recommend.
Amazing Tour ! Our guide Guido was the best ! Extremely friendly and knowledgeable. You could tell he loves this work !
Terrific guided tour; both guides were knowledgeable and gracious.
What a great tour and tour guide. David has such enthusiasm that it was infectious. Lots of great information and a good pace. Found the Vatican tour to be very crowded and confining. Imagine it is that way all the time. Left with the appreciation of the history of Rome.
We did the Rome in a day tour. Silvia took us through the morning Rome highlights part. She was amazing. She new so many details and made the experience marvelous. We like the walks of italy tours because they were so personal-- even though it was a group it felt like a private tour.

Excellent tours
We had a great time on the Eternity In A Day tour. :) Lots o' walking, but worth every step.
We absolutely loved this tour and the company Walks of Italy. All of the staff were helpful and friendly and the guides in particular were very knowledgeable, making for a fun, informative but relaxed day out. We will definitely be booking another our upon our return to Rome.
Both of out tour guides were excellent! We are so glad that we did this tour and will highly recommend it to others traveling to Rome. Thank you for employing knowledgable, passionate, and intentional tour guides. Both of our guides went above and beyond out expectations.
What a wonderful day with Jon. so very knowledgeable and made history come alive. Easy pace, gave a great highlight tour, we went back the next day to re-visit having enjoyed it so much.
Really enjoyed our day, guides were excellent (especially at the Vatican). Thanks, would recommend!
Sadly missed the first half of the tour due to plane delay, but the afternoon was excellent. Very informative guide who looked after all the party well and was amusing. Will be back to do the part we missed! Thank you.
Our tour guide, Jon, was outstanding. He was extremely knowledgeable, pleasant and accommodating. If you have to spend one day in Rome, this is the tour to take. It was well worth the money!
Had a great time on our tour! Both our tour guides (Vincenzo & Luigi) were awesome-very knowledgable and passionate about all the sites.
I thoroughly enjoyed our tour! Our two guides were knowledgeable and thoughtful. The group size was nice also. It was well worth the experience. Thank you for your excellent service with the tour and in answering some questions by email earlier.
Very informative tour. Knowlegeable tour guide
Wonderful guide. very informative tour. very punctual. I would definitely recommend it.
Great tour to see all of the highlights of Rome in one day and avoid the lines. Both our morning guide, Vincenzo, and our afternoon guide, Bruno, were engaging and very knowledgeable. A stop at the best gelato spot in Rome was an added bonus!
We enjoyed this wonderful tour
Absolutely fantastic! The guides were extremely knowledgeable but more so passionate about the subjects!
I am the travel agent who booked several people on the Best of FLR tour + a couple on Rome Eternity. All were very happy with the guides.
Cecilia was perfecto! She was well informed, professional, and passionate about her Roma!
Our Eternity in a Day tour with Claudia and Ferdinando as guides was an absolute joy. Such knowledgeable and passionate guides really made the tour fly by! I heartily recommend Walks of Italy for any exploration on an Italian holiday.
We thought the two tours were really good.We thought Katia was great.Her knowledge on Rome and the Vatican was first class and it gave us an excellent taster of everything Rome has to offer on our first visit to Rome!
Fantastic - hit all of the highlights of Rome and Jowita, our tour guide, was so great!
Our experience with Walks of Italy was excellent. Our guide was personable, very knowledgeable, and an exceptional teacher. Please give him our thanks again.
Cecilia was absolutely amazing on the first half of the tour. Very knowledgable and a terrific upbeat attitude about her City. My wife and I enjoyed every bit of our Eternity in a day and will be booking again with Walks of Italy the next time we return. For another wonderful adventure.
Even though my husband and I are not historical or artsy people we loved the Best of Rome tour. It highlighted all the main attractions and presented them in a way that was interesting and fun. We were able to see all the main sites in one day and have another day to relax in Rome!

Important information

Before you travel, please read our important notes about possible disruptions & site entrance requirements

There is a new rule at the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill that only small backpacks and regular-size handbags are allowed inside. Guests with larger bags will not be allowed to enter (there are no storage facilities) and all guests must now pass through a security check before entering the Colosseum.

The Colosseum has changed its admission policy to ensure that only 3,000 people are allowed within the amphitheater at any given time, meaning much less crowding during busy periods. Although our tickets are pre-booked with skip the line access, this may mean a slight delay on entering if capacity has already been reached. We expect that the instances of this will be limited but ask for your patience if you travel on a busy day and are affected by this unavoidable circumstance. In all, it should make for a much nicer experience for all (and longer general access lines!).

St. Peter's Basilica and the Sistine Chapel are holy places and thus, the attire must be appropriate for the visit. Both men and women are asked to wear clothing that covers at least the shoulders and knees. Walks of Italy cannot be held responsible for denied entry due to improper dress. Please note that, since the chapel is at the end of the Vatican visit, it is sufficient to bring extra coverings with you and put them on before our entrance to the Vatican.

Your tour will start at the Colosseum and end in St. Peter's Basilica where you will have skip the line entrance to get inside, though there is no guided explanation inside the church.

Please ensure that all members of your party have a valid ID on them on the day of the visit. This is particularly important for guests who have qualified for a senior, student, or child reduction.

IMPORTANT: While the Vatican Museums are equipped with elevators for wheelchair access, they are not conveniently located on the regular tour route and only give access to specific sections of the Museums. Please contact us at info@walksofitaly.com if you have walking disabilities or if you use a wheelchair. We can then work out a suitable alternative.

(No comment)
Great tour! Gives a stellar foundation for further exploration. Our guide was outstanding!!
Jowita was excellent!! She had all the information for us and was witty :-) It was the best part of our holiday, I'm really glad we picked this tour. It was very well organised from the beginning right through the end of the day. I highly recommend anyone going to Rome to book this tour, it was outstanding! Thank you.
Luigi did great job really enjoyed the day very much. Cheers
Good size group, not too big. Very knowledgeable guide. It's a lot of walking, but if you have a short stay in Roma, want to see the highlights, and hear the history of the important sites it's a great tour.
The entire tour was AWESOME!!! Francesca was AMAZING!!! Soo happy we had her as our guide, she went above and beyond her job to explain to us all that we wanted to know. This tour is very worth it! They took us to the majority of things we wanted to see. The gelato was excellent as well ;) Thank you Walks of Italy and thank you Francesca!!!
Very good, dragged on in the Vatican a little
We had a wonderful tour with Antonietta. She was very knowledgeable and friendly. Would absolutely recommend to a friend!

Jowita was very impressive. All four of us were impressed by her historical knowledge. It was a great day!

Our guide was fabulous! Her humor and knowledge was outstanding!
I was most impressed with how well organized the tour was and how well Jowita communicated with the group. Jowita is both knowledgeable and personable and connected well with her group. We had only a couple days in Rome, and the tour made our short stay valuable and very worthwhile. Thank you to Jowita and the Walks of Italy Team.
