Day 1: Rome Sightseeing and the Vatican
Start your day with a 9:00am pickup from your Rome hotel, and travel into the center with your private driver. Your morning kicks off with a sightseeing tour that takes in a mix of Rome’s classic sights along with some that the usual tourist itineraries miss. Visit Piazza Navona, Trevi Fountain, the Pantheon, and the Spanish Steps alongside Santa Maria della Pace. See the Ponte Sant’Angelo, lined with angel sculptures by Bernini, and admire the views of Castel Sant’Angelo aka the Emperor Hadrian’s mausoleum.

After a break for lunch, head to the Vatican with your skip-the-line ticket. You’ll bypass the main ticket line to step inside the vast Vatican Museum complex, seeing highlights such as Raphael’s Rooms, the Gallery of the Maps, the Tapestry Gallery, and the Sistine Chapel with its lauded Michelangelo frescoes. Your day tour ends with a walk around St. Peter’s Basilica to see La Pietà, Bernini’s bronze baldachin, and the papal tombs.

Day 2: Appian Way, Catacombs, Colosseum, and the Roman Forum
After another 9:00am pickup, you’ll travel with your guide to the Ancient Appian Way to explore the catacombs that lie beneath the old Roman road. Used as cemeteries for Rome’s persecuted early Christians, the catacombs are fascinating to explore, stretching some 93 miles (150km) in underground corridors.

From the Appian way, you’ll travel into the heart of Ancient Rome for some free time for lunch and a skip-the-line tour of the Colosseum. Bypass the general ticket line, then explore the ancient amphitheater that was used for gladiatorial games under the rule of the bloodthirsty Roman emperors. Learn about the dangerous animal battles and the gladiator’s skills as you explore, then head outside to stroll around Palatine Hill. Finish with a visit to the Roman Forum, and discover the Temple of Vestal Virgins and triumphal arches among other monumental Roman ruins.

Please note: A minimum of two people per booking is required.

Our two day private tour let us experience the highlights of Rome without any long lines. We climbed the Spanish steps, gazed at the Trevi Fountain, explored the catacombs, stared into the domes and reliquaries of numerous basilicas and cathedrals including St Peters of course, viewed the wonders of the Vatican museums, gawked at the Sistine Chapel ceiling, and were awed by the Colosseum and Roman Forum. Our guides were knowledgeable and full of stories and personality. Frequently our driver would pull over, say climb those stairs for a surprise, and we'd dutifully get out, climb the stairs, and be in wonder at yet another amazing site. Then we'd trot back down and he'd be waiting, ready to maneuver through the crazy traffic to the next awe-inspiring wonder. Our whole family highly recommends this tour.

Our guide, Paola, was stellar! She’s a PhD in Christian Archaeology, speaks 5 languages, and was so wonderful. Loved every minute! Florido, our Driver, also amazing and even sang to us! So worth the money to do this. Long days packed with interesting info you’d never get otherwise!
