Tour Description

From August 6th, all Italy sites we visit will require clients and guides alike to provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test completed within 48 hours prior to entry. They will also require a legal form of ID matching the vaccination or test results. This does not apply to children under 12. You can read more about it here.

Explore the Colosseum with an expert guide - and no lines!

Your Rome in a Day tour begins at an overlook of the Roman Forum, where your expert guide will introduce you to the ancient city and point out various attractions that you will visit later. Using skip-the-line Colosseum tickets, you'll then step into the iconic amphitheater for a full Colosseum tour including all the general access areas on the first and second tiers. Since there are never more than 18 people in the group, this is a unique opportunity to interact with your guide and learn about this iconic structure.

Discover history and art in the historic center

The next part of your Rome in a Day tour is a 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 of course beautiful Piazza Navona, home to Bernini's Fountain of Four Rivers.

See the best of the Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel and 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 such as 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.
