IN ONE DAY

Do you have just one day in Rome to see its most famous wonders and highlights?

Ancient City and Vatican tour in One day is the guided tour you need!

This tour is for very dynamic people who want to enjoy the major attractions but don’t have much time!
We have paired the Ancient City Classic tour and the Vatican City Classic tour in one day adding also the spectacular tour of the Pantheon along the way!

Our tour guides are local, licensed and qualified experts in art, history and archaeology. They will stay with you from the morning to the afternoon guiding you through the most important sites in Rome and Vatican city.
You will cover the mighty Colosseum, the impressive remains of the Roman Forum, the stunning Pantheon dome and the breathtaking Sistine Chapel and Vatican Museums in just one day in Rome.

You’ll take a taxi from one location to another and have a short lunch break, maybe tasting a slice of pizza like we Romans do. By the end of the day you’ll have learned everything that happened in Rome over more than 12 Centuries of history.

This tour is only for PRIVATE GROUPS and is tailored to your needs and requests, your guide will spend the day with you help you with transportation, tickets and inspiring “things to do”.

Recommended for “cruise ships excursions”.

Sites included in the tour:
Colosseum, Roman Forum, Vatican Museums (gallery of the candelabra, gallery of the tapestries, gallery of maps), Pantheon, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica.

IMPORTANT: Please, please consider that St. Peter’s is a church and that there may be changes in opening and closing times according to last minute religious celebrations.
In the case that it will not be possible to visit the Church, you will visit extra areas of the Vatican museums, such as Raphael Rooms.
