What You Can Expect

Rome by Night Tour

Throw a coin into the famous Trevi Fountain!

Start your evening with a hotel pickup from your central Rome hotel or alternatively board your air-conditioned coach near Rome Termini station. Then, sit back and relax as you travel around the city’s centro storico – its historical center – admiring the illuminated attractions. First stop is Piazza Navona, a square thronged by lively restaurants. Stretch your legs and stop for photos by Bernini’s beautiful water fountains.

Return to your coach and pass the Palace of Exhibitions on the way to Piazza Venezia to see its ostentatious Vittorio Emmanuele II monument. Hear tales and trivia about this love-it-or-hate-it landmark from your onboard guide, and learn about Rome’s Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, located on the building’s sweeping terrace.

Travel around Capitoline Hill into the area known as Ancient Rome, and see the relics and ruins that the Roman emperors left behind. Gaze at crumbling monuments in the Roman Forum and admire the Arch of Constantine lit up against the dazzling backdrop of the Colosseum.

Head alongside Circus Maximus and follow the Tiber River past Castel Sant’Angelo to Vatican City. Gaze in awe at the sight of St Peter’s Basilica set against the night sky, and then pass the ancient Aurelian walls on your way back into Rome. Admire Porta Flaminia Gate by Villa Borghese, Rome’s central park, marvel at the Egyptian obelisk in Piazza del Popolo, and then head back into the historical center.

Hop off your coach at Trevi Fountain – Rome’s famous water feature – and throw a coin in the fountain for luck. Then, finish your tour with a drop-off at your central hotel or another central Rome location.

We really enjoyed our tour of Rome at night. There were only four of us on the tour and it was brilliant. It wasn't supposed to be a private tour but it turned out that way. Wonderful experience

I absolutely loved this ... Rome is gorgeous by night, even when it was raining cats and dogs, and I really appreciated the hotel pick-up. Well worth the extra money, especially for someone who has never been in Rome before and has no idea how to get anywhere.

One of the best tours we took in Rome! Rome at night was absolutely beautiful, and we wouldn't have missed this opportunity for anything! Best to take this tour right after you arrive in Rome, as we did. It sets the perspective for the rest of your trip!
