Explore Rome's classical attractions on a morning tour that combines a little walking with relaxed sightseeing by coach. This half-day tour is the perfect introduction to Rome's famous classical sights: the Trevi Fountain, Piazza Navona, the Pantheon and St Peter's Basilica.
You also have the option to indulge in an authentic Italian lunch (drinks not included) at a restaurant near Stazione Termini or the Vatican, and take the Imperial Rome tour in the afternoon.
Your morning tour of Classical Rome begins with a pleasant stroll through Rome's historical center with your local guide. Along the way, you'll admire such sights as Piazza della Repubblica, Fountain of the Naiads, the Trevi Fountain, Column of Marcus Aurelius, Bernini's Palazzo di Montecitorio, the Pantheon (visit inside), Palazzo Madama and Piazza Navona.
You'll also pass the riverside Castel Sant'Angelo to reach the Basilica of St Peter, which you'll visit except when religious celebrations are taking place. Don't miss Michelangelo's magnificent Pieta, to the right of the main entrance.
If you take the Imperial Rome tour in the afternoon, you'll also visit:
- Piazza del Campidoglio, re-designed by Michelangelo, with fantastic views over the Roman Forum
- Circus Maximus and Pyramid of Caius Cestius
- Basilica of St Paul, the largest patriarchal basilica in Rome after St Peter's, built over the burial place of St Paul the Apostle
The Imperial Rome tour concludes outside, but doesn't enter, the Colosseum.
