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.

Tour was everything I had hoped for- and more. Having an Italian guide to provide not only history but historical context, current interpretation and opinions of events and personages was wonderful. Our guide did an excellent job and the bus transfer was much appreciated. Thank you.

This tour was amazing because of all the beautiful historic places we got to see but even more importantly we had the BEST GUIDE EVER! Eleonora was so knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating to us. The headsets worked perfectly—we could hear all the information she had to share. I also greatly appreciated the small number of people in the group. You knocked it out of the park Eleonora! Molto, molto bene! Grazie mille!
