What You Can Expect

Rome Day Trip from Sorrento Including Dinner

Admire St Peter's Basilica and learn about Rome's history from your guide

Board your coach in central Sorrento in the morning and get ready for your day trip to Rome: Italy’s must-visit destination. Sit back and relax on the 4-hour journey north while listening to your guide talk about the day's itinerary. When you arrive in Rome, get acquainted with the city by seeing the sights from the comfort of your coach. Then, hop out when you reach Vatican City, Rome’s sovereign city-state that’s home to the pope.

Follow your guide by foot to St Peter's Square, a massive plaza sitting in front of St Peter’s Basilica, a famous place of pilgrimage for Roman Catholics. Get an overview of the surrounding sites before enjoying three hours of free time to explore independently. The time can also be used to enjoy lunch in the area at your own expense; simply ask your guide to recommend a restaurant.

Perhaps visit the Vatican Museums, home to some of the most renowned sculptures and Renaissance art in the world, and step inside the Sistine Chapel, official residence of the Pope, to marvel at the stunning ceiling painted by Michelangelo. Head inside St Peter’s Basilica to visit the underground tombs where past Popes are laid to rest. Or, if you have a head for heights, make your way to the top of the dome for sweeping city views.

Reconvene with your guide and travel to the Colosseum, considered one of the greatest works of Roman architecture and engineering. The largest of the Roman Empire, this jaw-dropping amphitheater was used for gladiator entertainment for millennia. Spend an hour exploring the interior independently, and imagine those fearless warriors fighting against each other to their deaths, watched over by the thousands of spectators.

This Colosseum is the last stop on your Roman adventure. Reboard your coach and begin the journey back to Sorrento, stopping at a restaurant along the way to enjoy dinner with your group.
