Get picked up at your hotel or meet your knowledgeable local guide near Rome's main railway station Termini. Then head straight to the historical center, Centro Storico, passing through the spacious Piazza della Repubblica.
Wander the narrow cobblestoned lanes of the Centro Storico, passing outdoor cafes, Barque fountains, ancient churches and Renaissance-era palaces. Stop for a while at the 17th-century Trevi Fountain and perhaps even toss a coin in to ensure that you'll come back (two coins means you'll fall in love with an Italian and three coins will ensure you'll marry one). After your coin tossing and perhaps a photo, stroll over to the Column of Marcus Aurelius and then to the Bernini-designed palace, Palazzo di Montecitorio, which today is the house of parliament.
Get ready to be wowed by the Pantheon, one of the best preserved buildings from ancient Rome. Meaning 'temple of all gods,' the Pantheon is a site to behold: it holds the tombs of Renaissance artist Raphael and King Umberto I, among others. Take a short walk over to stunning Piazza Navona, one of the greatest public spaces in the city to look at the fountains designed by Baroque master Bernini.
Hop back on the coach and head to the where the tour began or request being dropped off at one of four different locations.
