Rome in One Day

By Viator, July 2016

5 1718 Reviews | Add your review

From the mighty Colosseum to the ethereal grandeur of the Sistine Chapel, to the much-fabled Trevi Fountain, Rome is one of the most historically rich cities in the world and the ancient capital is teeming with must-see attractions. Everyone knows that Rome wasn’t built in a day and trying to cram all of its sights into a day tour is equally insurmountable, but it’s still possible to discover the highlights with just one day in Rome. 

With only one day in the city, booking a tour is the best way to maximize your time and ensure you don’t miss anything, while also benefitting from the insider knowledge of a local guide. A full-day Small-Group tour of Rome and the Vatican will ensure entry to top sights like the Vatican Museums, the Sistine Chapel and the Colosseum, while a Rome Super Saver: Colosseum and Ancient Rome with Best of Rome Afternoon Walking Tour offers excellent value, including visits to the Roman Forum, the Pantheon, the Trevi Fountain and the Spanish Steps, as well as a pit-stop for some Italian gelato. 

Walking tours are also a great way to soak up the atmosphere of the city, while checking out the sights, but for a more fun way to get around, take a Vespa tour, or a Rome in a Day tour by Electric Bike or Segway. If you’re spending the evening in the city, you even extend your itinerary to include a night walking tour of illuminated Rome, an evening visit to the Colosseum or Vatican Museums, or a night Segway tour. 

If you decide to explore independently, a hop-on hop-off sightseeing tour can save on both time and money, as well as taking the hassle out of navigating a new city, and it’s also worth pre-booking tickets for top attractions, as queues can be unfeasibly long, especially during the high season. Skip-the-line tickets are available for sights like the Colosseum, the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel, the Borghese Gallery, the Crypts and Roman Catacombs, St Peter's Basilica and Palatine Hill.
