Your private tour can be customized to your preferences, so when you book, list any special interests you have so your art historian guide can tailor the itinerary.
On the day, meet your guide at Capitoline Hill near the equestrian statue of Emperor Marcus Aurelius, a replica of the original in the museums. Get an introduction to ancient Roman art and start your private 3-hour tour.
After admiring the Michelangelo-designed Piazza del Campidoglio, enter the famous Capitoline Museums, home to a renowned collection of Roman art, statuary and antiquities.
Stroll around as your guide shows you the main highlights, all displayed in wonderful halls decorated with 16th-century frescoes.
Admire the statues, vases and important monuments, and see masterpieces such as the original of the equestrian sculpture of Marcus Aurelius outside.
View the ruins of the 6th-century-BC Temple of Jupiter and walk down the surviving corridor of the Tabularium, ancient Rome’s archives office, to enjoy a wonderful view over the Roman Forum.
Listen as your guide identifies the landmarks, and after descending from the Piazza del Campidoglio toward the Forum, view Trajan’s Market, Trajan’s Forum and the marvelously sculpted Trajan’s Column as your guide discusses their history.
Your tour ends at Piazza Venezia.
