Itinerary:

Day 1: Colosseum and City Highlights

Stop At: Colosseum, Roman Forum, Colle Capitolino, Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, Piazza Navona, Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi, and Arco di Settimio Severo.

The day begins at the Coliseum where you meet your guide and with reserved tickets (no queuing) you go straight inside. You have a little time to wander about this breathtaking amphitheatre and your guide will tell you something of it history.

Then it is outside again to see the Arch of Constantine and the Roman Forum. The forum was the empire’s hub where everything happened; political, religious and social. There is the 1st century Arch of Titus, the House of the Vestal Virgins, the Temple of Saturn, the Senate House and the white marble Arch of Septimus Severus to name a few.

You then arrive at the Capitoline Hill following a short walk up the Sacred Way. Here is one of the most famous and breathtaking monuments of modern-day Italy, Il Vittoriano. The tour continues with a visit to the Trevi Fountain,it is more beautiful in real life though and if you follow the legend, throw a coin in the fountain and wish that you will one day return to Rome. The next part of the tour brings you to the Government District, home to the Parliament Building, the Palace of the Council of Ministers and the Column of Marcus Aurelius.

Another short walk down a narrow “vincolo” brings you to the Pantheon where you can visit the tomb of the Renaissance painter and architect Raphael. The day finishes with another walk, past the Ancient Baths of Nero to Piazza Navona and Bernini’s Fountain of the Four Rivers.

Next you will enter the Sistine Chapel; home of the conclave to elect a new Pope. Once inside you will benefit from the information your guide has given and be better able to appreciate Michelangelo’s wonderful ceiling frescoes and those on the walls painted by Botticelli and his contemporaries.
