Discover history and art in the historic center

The next part of your Rome in a day tour is the walking tour of the historical center of the city including a stop at the Pantheon, a 1,900-year-old temple that is the inspiration for buildings around the world, including the U.S. Capitol. 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, your walking tour also features 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

You can't say you've seen Rome in a day until you take a Vatican Museums tour. With skip the line Vatican tickets, you'll avoid the extremely long wait to enter and get right into the highlights of the collection with your guide. Our specially-designed itinerary picks and chooses the very best of the nine miles of art and antiquities to make sure you are engaged and entertained throughout, while not missing any of the gems of the collection, like the Apollo Belvedere, Laocoon and His Sons, and Raphael Rooms.

You’ll end your Rome in a Day experience in the Sistine Chapel. Afterward, you can choose between spending more time in the Vatican Museums or using a special entrance into St. Peter's Basilica that will allow you to skip the lines and enjoy a self-guided visit to the greatest church in Christendom.

If you only have a short period of time to see the absolute best that Rome has to offer, our Rome in a Day tour is the perfect way to maximize your time and experience the wonders of the city in the company of an expert local guide and small group of fellow travelers.

Luigi did a fabulous job. He had an infectious energy, which was much needed on a very hot day in Rome. He found shade as much as possible and was very attentive to the group needs on the tour, without sacrificing anything. I would highly recommend Walks of Italy and Luigi to anyone.
