Either I or one of my DGS will be able to guide you through one of the most beautiful cities in the world while making you feel at ease. You can be assured that the people who are guiding you love Rome and can share it with you in a way that will you fill you with enthusiasm and passion just as Rome should be seen.
Once picked up we should arrive in Rome in no more than 1h and 15 min. And where better to start off but The Colosseum. We will of course go over the basic history and interesting need-to-knows of this amazing amphitheatre but also will touch upon the not-so-known tidbits. Revealing its history, its traditions, but most of all its secrets!
Don’t even worry about the queue and the waiting aspect of entering this one-of-a-kind edifice, this is just a small detail that you need not bother yourself with since with Driverguideservice, our clients get in without the hassle. We will then conclude the first part if our day by visiting "Where the games began…." Where else but The Circus Maximus, the large, oval track where the chariot races took place. Here we will observe The Palatine Hill, the centermost of the Seven Hills of Rome, one of the most ancient parts of the city. Can anyone say, Ben Hur? Next we will stop byThe Roman Forum, the political and economical centre of Rome during the Republic.
Here we will take our time and marvel at the The Forum of Trajan, The Basilica Ulpia sestertius, The Forum of Caesar, The Mamertine Prison and then finally reaching the Piazza del Campidoglio where we can see the most spectacular view of this ancient city and the midst that is filled with everything from historic ghosts to the modern-day romance. Obviously, we’ll take a stroll to see The Trevi Fountain, an authentic masterpiece of baroque art and here, express our most profound wish.
Next stop? Why The Spanish Steps, of course. And then Piazza del Popolo or The People’s Square, passing by The Pantheon, my favourite landmark, completely surrounded by the evolving Rome in every direction. As far as lunch, we suggest one of the local restaurants where the Romans eat and not a typical tourist lunch menu. Here we can find good food at good prices. Food that we would serve to our own families. Personal opinion: Mamma Rosa on Via Appia Antica, where the pasta is hand-made and the wine is well worth it! At this point I would say that the day is almost over but before leaving the eternal city we must stop to admire one more of Rome’s most famous Landmarks, St. Peter’s Basilica.
Okay since we’re on our way there, we’ll stop by the area we call the Jewish Ghetto, The Temple of Hercules, The Theatre of Marcellus and Tiberine Island.
Please note that in this tour, we do not provide the visit inside of St. Peter’s Basilica but we will take just enough time to take a stroll in the piazza and take some memorable photos. Oh and I almost forgot… you have the option to change your itinerary.
