The Ultimate One Day Guided Tour of Rome

Your expert guide will discuss the political, artistic, and religious history of Rome with you as we visit ancient locations, modern sites, and everything in between.

You will begin your guided tour at your central Rome accommodation where your private guide and driver will meet you to transfer to the Vatican Museums: where an art lover’s paradise is waiting to be explored. Of course your Skip the line ticket will be invaluable here otherwise you might spend the entire nine hours waiting in the queue to get in!

Marvel at the splendor of St. Peter’s Basilica and Michelangelo’s fresco masterpiece in the Sistine Chapel.

Your expert guide will help you navigate the corridors and galleries of the Vatican Museums to see famous works and little known-gems while disclosing papal secrets!

After you leave the Vatican City you will be picked up in your private Mercedes Benz vehicle and driver to visit the famous Piazza Navona. Once the athletics stadium of Emperor Domitian, it is today home to Bernini’s baroque fountain masterpiece, the Fountain of the Four Rivers, which you may recognize from the movie Angels & Demons!

Our epic journey continues rather fittingly at a place where many legends were made, by entering Rome’s most enduring monument – the Colosseum. Your private guide will reveal all the scandals, passions, and intrigue, and Gladiatorial glory that occurred within its walls.

Our walking tour will then take us to the nearby Roman Forum. As we wander through what was the heart of the Roman Empire, you will be able to imagine the urban center full of life as it was in ancient times.

After this, we will be picked up by our private Mercedes Benz driver to head into the city. You will see more of Rome’s ancient past juxtaposed by modern history as you gaze through the Oculus of the Pantheon, hear the plop of coins falling into the Trevi Fountain, admire the architecture of the Spanish Steps, and wander down the famous Via dei Condotti.

What Makes Our Rome in a Day Tour Different From The Rest?

Quite simply the passion, humor, energy, and unsurpassed knowledge of our officially licensed guides truly are the difference makers between simply admiring the beauty of the city or leaving feeling like you have made a connection to this incredible place.

We aren’t just history buffs, we are expert storytellers and the private group setting of our tours means that all your questions will be answered in a full and detailed way.

Moreover, as official licensed guides, booking with us ensures you can maximize your time by skipping the line at all the attractions. If you only have one day in Rome and you want to see it all, then you know that is a must!

Itinerary Details

Rome in a Day from Civitavecchia: If your visit to the Eternal City begins on the docks of Civitavecchia, we can arrange your transportation from Civitavecchia to Rome and customize visits to the above sites according to your arrival and departure times. Please contact us for further information.

*Please note that churches included in our tour are operational churches. There are occasions in which churches close unexpectedly without prior notice. Luxe will seek to provide an alternative in-situ art experience on these occasions.

*The Pantheon is closed Sunday afternoons so will be viewed and explained from the outside only. If you wish to enter the Roman Forum with your guide rather than view it from the outside, then we can arrange this, however we would need to remove Piazza Navona from the itinerary due to time restrictions.

This tour doesn’t run on Sundays, 1st May, 29th June, 15th August, 1st November, 8th December, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day.

Where Does This Guided Walking Tour Start?
