Rome in One Day

By Viator, June 2015

5 196 Reviews | Add your review

They say all roads lead to Rome, and hopefully the road you are on will eventually wind its way around to the Eternal City. Calm and chaotic, metropolitan and provincial, from ancient catacombs to Roman ruins and Renaissance masterpieces, indulge your senses in the pleasures of Rome.
 
Day 1: City of Rome Eternal Sights
Dive into the heart of Rome on the hop-on hop-off bus, or a specialist walking tour including Ancient Rome, Baroque Rome, Jewish Rome, and art history. See the city’s dark side on a night-time tour, complete with spooky ghosts and vampires, or cruise the Tiber River.

Admire the monument to Vittorio Emanuele II in Piazza Venezia, then dig into Rome’s past at the Forum. The unmissable Colosseum is one of the most recognizable monuments in the world. Creep along eerie Roman catacombs and step inside the Pantheon, then go shopping on Via del Corso, and finally swing by the Trevi Foutain to throw in a coin and ensure your return to the Eternal City.

Day 2: The Vatican

The Vatican is one of Rome's most fascinating areas, packed with history and intrigue. Witness the Papal Audience and experience the wonder of this spiritual tradition. Skip the line to experience the sumptuousness of the Vatican Museums, Raphael's Rooms and La Pieta, in St Peter's Basilica. View the brilliantly decorated masterpieces of Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel or explore the artistic and architectural treasures in an exclusive viewing of the Vatican Museums. Discover Christian Rome's ancient pilgrimage route on the Thrones of the Pope tour.

Day 3: Day Trips
Food is a major pleasure in Italy, so indulge in a food tour of Chianti and Umbria. Explore beyond the city from Hadrian's Villa, Assisi and Orvieto to Florence, or savor the delights of the Amalfi Coast and Tuscany on an overnight trip. Sail across the Gulf of Naples and discover the secrets of Capri, or take a three-day excursion to Naples, Pompeii, Sorrento and Capri. Enjoy the highlights of Southern Italy and climb to the smoking summit of volcanic Mt Vesuvius.
