Walk around St Peter’s Square, and check out St Peter’s Basilica, the largest catholic church in the world, home to more Renaissance art like Michaelangelo’s La Pietà sculpture.
Maybe you want to immerse yourself in Ancient Rome by visiting the Colosseum, Roman Forum, Arch of Constantine and Palatine Hill. Drive by Circus Maximums, and marvel at the imposing design of the Pantheon. For a look at Rome’s most beautiful and romantic attractions, you’ll want to walk through the historical center to find the Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps and Piazza Navona. Don’t forget to take a break to enjoy the most pleasurable of Italian activities—eating and drinking at a sunny sidewalk café.

What a wonderful experience! I highly recommend this tour if you have only a quick day in Rome. Such a great way to avoid the crowds from our cruise excursions and tailor your own day. Definitely the way to see Rome and, honestly, our guide treated us like a member of his own family. Truly recommended!
Our driver was Amor. OUTSTANDING!!! Well worth the money! He helped us make sure we got to our tour guide, took us to a local restaurant instead of the tourist' ones as well as many other sites that we wouldn't have know about.
Because there was 4 people in our group we decided to book a private van and driver to meet us at the port for our visit to Rome - Patrick met us at the port and it was a dreadful morning rain very heavy - Patrick quickly got us seated in the van and for the next 1-1/2 hrs he gave a consise history of the city -when we arrived he took us straight to a coffee bar close to the colosseum - he then took us to the ticket office - arranged to meet us after at a certain point - as it was still raining he arranged with his office tickets for the Vatican Museums/'Sistine Chapel - he took us to see all the major sites which we couldn't have covered otherwise - so a big thank you to Patrick who was very knowledgeable about everything and made sure we saw as much as we possibly could on such a very wet day - he was total gentleman and most helpful to 4 ladies 2 youngish 2 oldish!! - he certainly knows his city and it's history - i would certainly recommend a private car to a party of 4
Amazing, fabulous day in Rome with Luca as our driver. Very courteous, friendly and knowledgeable. Our group of seven had a great time exploring Rome in a very comfortable vehicle. We were able to customize our day based on what we wanted to see and then we let Luca take us to places he recommended seeing. We also enjoyed a great lunch at a quaint Italian restaurant per Luca's suggestion. I would highly recommend this day trip. Thanks for all the great memories.

Our tour was fantastic. Our guide was waiting for us at our port and was extremely knowledgable about the city, where to go, what to see and how best to avoid the lines. In fact he even secured last minute tickets for us to get into the coliseum and walked us to the front of the line right into the arena. Five Stars and well worth the expense...which was fairly priced for two people!
Our friends who took the bus-based ship from the cruise ship received nothing like this more personalized 6-person with one guide trip.
Our driver Luca was excellent! He made sure we got to see everything in our allotted time. He even
took us to places we didn't know about. I would definitely recommend him.
Worked great. No lines!
Excellent tour. Luigi was a great tour guide. We had 2 young kids with us who also really enjoyed themselves. I would highly recommend this tour as it allows you time to see the major highlights at your own pace.

Our driver and tour guide, DAVID, was AMAZING!!!! David was punctual, friendly, funny, personable and a pleasure to spend the day with!!!! David was in contact with other tour guides and maximized our time by bypassing the attractions that had long waits to attractions with shorter to no lines and then at the end of the day we returned to the attractions that were previously busy to find no wait. His ability to get around Rome and to fill all of our time with sightseeing was remarkable and skilled. When we told David of our wish to have Gelato he took us to the best Gelato in Rome and even put on an apron and went behind the counter to help scoop. By the end of the day we felt that we had found a friend in David.
