What You Can Expect

Rome by Night Tour

Throw a coin into the famous Trevi Fountain!

Begin this fun 2-hour guided evening tour of Rome by getting picked up at your hotel in the center of the city or meet your guide at Rome's Termini train station. Hop on the comfortable coach and weave through Rome, heading for the Centro Storico, the lively central district filled with Baroque churches, Renaissance palaces and oodles of narrow winding cobblestone lanes. Learn about the history of this medieval quarter. 

Linger for a while in Piazza Navona, the beautiful oblong-shaped public space that is lined with restaurants and cafes. Don't miss the Bernini-designed fountains. Board the coach again and head to Vittorio Emmanuele II monument, the object of much teasing among Romans who call it 'the big typewriter' and the 'wedding cake,' among other not-so-flattering names. 

From Capitoline Hill and its main Michelangelo-designed square, pass by the Roman Forum and the Colosseum, looking particularly striking as it's illuminated at night. Then, while cruising along the Tiber River, pass by the Circus Maximus and the imposing Castel Sant' Angelo, stopping in Vatican City to admire St. Peter's Basilica, perhaps the most famous and recognizable churches in the world. 

After passing by Piazza del Popolo, hop off the bus for a look at the Trevi Fountain, the city's amazing 17th-century fountain. Toss a coin in the fountain and then get dropped off at your centrally located hotel or another central 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!
