What You Can Expect
At your own leisure and expense, head to the Vatican Museums, housing some of the world’s greatest art. Explore the Tapestry Gallery and the magnificent Raphael Rooms before strolling through the Sistine Chapel, where you’ll soak in the magical atmosphere created by Michelangelo's ceiling painting of the The Creation of the World.
Next, explore St Peter's Square and see the largest church in Christendom, St Peter's Basilica. If you decide to venture inside, check out the gilded Papal Canopy suspended over the altar, where the Pope celebrates mass. Here, admire one of the best-known sculptures in the world, Michelangelo's Pietà marble masterpiece.
After these breathtaking sites, explore Ancient Rome. Visit the Roman Forum, the Colosseum and the Arch of Constantine, and drive past the Circus Maximus, Palatine Hill and the Baths of Caracalla. Visit the well-preserved Pantheon and the nearby Santa Maria Sopra Minerva church housing Michelangelo's Risen Christ. Throughout your journey, your driver will explain the history behind these incredible sites and suggest good places to stop for lunch (own expense).
Finally, stroll through the historical center of Rome, from Piazza Navona through the narrow streets to the Trevi Fountain and the Spanish Steps, before ending your day with a relaxing drive back to the Civitavecchia port.

Our private Rome tour was fantastic. The guide was very friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. He drove us to the attractions and then to scenic views. He drove us to a square and pointed out the best of Roman pizza, coffee, and gelato in that square. We had a wonderful lunch.
This tour was the highlight of our trip. Gianfranco was waiting for us at the gang plank with a shiny, black Mercedes and we were whisked into Rome and dropped off in front of each attraction that was on OUR list.
Gianfranco had the Skip the Lines tickets pre-purchased so we walked right into the Coliseum and Vatican Museum. We saw everything on our list and many other attractions suggested by Gianfranco. This tour was a splurge, but worth every Euro spent!
