Discover history and art in the historic center

The next part of your Rome in a Day tour is a walking tour of the historical center of the city including a stop at the Pantheon - a 1,900-year-old temple that is the inspiration for buildings around the world, including the U.S. Capitol. You’ll also explore the other side of Rome, the Rome of Audrey Hepburn and Federico Fellini: piazzas and fountains, gelato and photo ops. You’ll see the world-famous Trevi Fountain, where Fellini’s lovers cavorted in La Dolce Vita, and of course beautiful Piazza Navona, home to Bernini's Fountain of Four Rivers.

As an extra bonus your walking tour also features a refreshing Italian gelato to eat as we stroll, just as the Italians do! Enjoy it, after all it’s on us: Consider it part of your welcome to Rome!

See the best of the Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica

You can't say you've seen Rome in a day until you take a Vatican Museums tour. With skip-the-line Vatican tickets, you'll avoid the extremely long wait to enter and get right into the highlights of the collection with your guide. Our specially-designed itinerary picks and chooses the very best of the nine miles of art and antiquities to make sure you are engaged and entertained throughout, while not missing any of the gems of the collection such as the Apollo Belvedere, Laocoon and His Sons, and Raphael Rooms.

You’ll end your Rome in a Day experience in the Sistine Chapel. Afterward, you can choose between spending more time in the Vatican Museums or using a special entrance into St. Peter's Basilica that will allow you to skip the lines and enjoy a self-guided visit to the greatest church in Christendom.

If you only have a short period of time to see the absolute best that Rome has to offer, our Rome in a Day tour is the perfect way to maximize your time and experience the wonders of the city in the company of an expert local guide and small group of fellow travelers.

We had a wonderful tour of Rome in a day. Our guide was absolutely so knowledgeable and answered all our questions and then some. I would have liked to start in the Vatican and end at the Colosseum. Also would have liked a little time to shop instead of the gelato break Fabio was a wonderful guide and really enjoyed the tour.

I was probably a bit nervous heading into this, booking it over the internet, but I could not have been more pleased. Everything was coordinated VERY well. There was absolutely no stress. The pick up was easy, where to meet after the noon break was easy ... The guide was very knowledgable ... I learned so much! And the headphones were great ... I didn't feel like I had to be tied to her to hear. In short it was worth EVERY penny. I don't often take the time to fill out reviews but wanted to make sure that others knew that this tour was well worth the price and the fact that there was literally NO stress made it invaluable. -- Emily G. from Dayton, OH.

A very thorough and enjoyable walking tour with our knowledgeable guide. Unfortunately one member of our party had walking issues because of a travel injury during our trip to Italy. The cobblestones and hilly roads proved to be too much of a challenge. Our guide found us a cab and after a rest period and lunch, we were able to re-join the tour for the afternoon. We appreciated her accommodating our needs. The guide was excellent and able to provide a wonderful narrative for the tour.

This was a good extension of the NCL "Highlights of Rome with transfer" excursion from cruise port to Rome. The guide was exceptionally well-versed. Very meaningful.
