What You Can Expect

Classical Rome City Tour

See Trevi Fountain on the Classical Rome Tour

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.

Full-Day Tour: Upgrade to the full-day tour to see even more of the Italian capital! After the morning tour, spend some time indulging in a delicious lunch (at own expense) and then meet your guide to go by foot and coach to see the sites of the Roman Empire, including the Circus Maximus, the Roman Forum and Capitoline Hill, among others. And the best part: a skip-the-line tour of the Colosseum.

Full-Day Tour with Lunch:Upgrade to a full-day tour plus lunch at a restaurant near Termini Station or the Vatican.

Excellent tour of the top sites of central Rome highlighted by our ,87 year old guide who was worth the price of the tour himself! The bus stops in 2 locales and then you walk a fair bit which was fine for us but hard for some of the party to keep up.Very good way to begin your vacation and orient yourself.

Great tour, a nice overview of city highlights. The only disappointment was that the tour did not include the interior of St. Peter's Basilica. We have since recommended this tour to everyone we know who is going to Rome. People just need to be aware that there is quite a bit of walking in the city center.

a trip of a life time! The group was small and the guide was well informed! You get to see many things that i would never have found on my own. Love it

Our first tour of the trip and it was amazing! What a guide and what a city - so beautiful. On the morning tour you will see all the highlights of Classical Rome and you'll walk mostly hopping on and off the bus twice. This is the way to do it if your time is limited and even if you are staying a month or a lifetime I would definitely recommend it. Just wandering the streets with a local who loves this place is fantastic. You will see the Trevi Fountain and Pantheon and all the important squares etc. and get a feel for classical, gorgeous, Rome. We took this tour on Boxing Day right after Christmas and I was very confused when I booked it because many comments referred to visits to the Vatican despite the fact that it was not mentioned in the description of this tour. We did enter Vatican City briefly on the tour but the museum, Basilica, and Sistine Chapel we closed because of the holiday. This was good for us because I think we got to spend more time in the city of Rome as I had hoped and we had a tour of the Vatican scheduled for later in the week. The Vatican portion of the tour is something that causes a bit of confusion but I assume this tour often gives you a bit of time in St. Peter's Basilica. In any case, bring your own set of earbuds just in case the ones they give you don't work properly and have a blast!!

We also took the Afternoon Ancient Tour Of Rome that you could add to this tour and it was the only tour I found a bit disappointing. Be aware you will not get to walk through the Roman Forum as I assumed we would. We enjoyed it however and did see the ruins of course but had little detailed explanation. You do have to wait as the guide buys tickets for the Coliseum but we were prepared for that as we had read reviews here. If time is limited add this part of the tour most definitely! A nighttime tour might be a bit better.

This tour was amazing, the tour guide was fantastic and the information covered was entertaining and very educational. The morning guide had vast knowledge of what she was explaining, and was helpful and just FANTASTIC. THE AFTERNOON GUIDE WAS LIKE 90 years old, hysterical and great! I am so glad that he was the guide for the second half as he added humor to the learning and narration which was quite a change from all of the other tours that we did. Greenline was fantastic, easy to find, easy to contact. Highly recommend seeing the sights it's a guide, as we did both ways and the guide made it so much better.
