    One-Day Rome: An Introduction to the City

One-Day Rome: An Introduction to the City

  • City: Rome
  • Duration: Approximately 7 hours (including a break for lunch)

Make the most of your trip to Rome in this 7-hour tour that explores the highlights of the Eternal City.


If you have just one day to see Rome, this is the tour that will help you get the most out of your visit and enhance your appreciation of the city's aesthetic and architectural highlights. For those planning a longer stay, this tour will provide the perfect introduction to the Eternal City.

The tour starts with San Clemente, where two superimposed churches evocatively illustrate the wealth and development of Rome as a medieval city. You will continue to the Colosseum for the classic and always-exhilarating exterior view of this emblematic feature of the Roman cityscape and then you'll walk along Via dei Fori Imperiali - laid out during the Fascist Period and lined with the imposing ruins of the Imperial Forums.

Then it's on to the Capitoline Hill, where the genius of Michelangelo has left its indelible mark on the 'Eternal City.' From the Capitoline terrace, there is a breathtaking view of the Roman Forum, encompassing the broad sweep of ancient Rome's magnificent past. In Piazza Venezia you will admire the enormous and impressive monument to the unification of Italy.

Next, you'll explore the picturesque Jewish Ghetto (with an independent lunch, perhaps at one of the renowned Roman-Jewish eateries in the neighborhood) and the Renaissance piazzas around Campo de Fiori before arriving at the splendid Piazza Navona, with its remarkable Baroque fountains. Afterwards, you'll visit the Pantheon square, where the Pantheon - one of the greatest and best preserved Roman temples in existence is located. And where else can the tour end but at the mythic cascades of the Trevi Fountain? Toss in a coin so you'll be sure to return to Rome!

Please note that around lunch time, your guide will give you some great restaurant suggestions and you will have some free time to enjoy your lunch (not included in the total price).

Here our guide literally saved the day as we were touring on a Sunday and access to several of the sites (churches) was impeded due to services that day. Our guide easily revised the itinerary and took us to replacement sites that were extremely interesting and broadened our Rome experience greatly. We were all impressed with his ability to improvise and impress. Bravo!

We had a spectacular day with our guide. She showed us things we would never have discovered on our own. She was knowlegdeable and fun to be with. Overall it was a great way to see the highlights of Rome.

Barbara was a knowledgeable, articulate guide who took us to the key places in the city. It was a long hot day, but she was a pleasure to be with, and we really understood the city much better after spending a day with her. Well worth the money!

Fantastic day through the city. Seen from the eyes of a local who loves his city. This was one of our favorite days and definitely our favorite guide. He made the city come alive.
