This is the ideal tour for those who want to visit all the best of Rome having only one day available. (Duration about 7 hours).
It starts in the morning, at the time you prefer, with the Colosseum. We will continue with a nice walk in the Roman Forum and Imperial Forums, in order to reach the central and strategic Piazza Venezia, and be able to admire the imposing Altare della Patria, with the tomb of the Unknown Soldier. After Palazzo Venezia we will be in a few minutes in Largo Argentina to overlook the ruins of what , likely,was the place where Julius Caesar was murdered. From here we will reach Piazza Navona with Bernini's Fountain of the Four Rivers and the Church of Sant'Agnese in Agone by Borromini. We will walk a little further to "conquer" the Pantheon, undoubtedly the best preserved monument of ancient Rome. After a short visit of this we will gladly go to the Trevi Fountain and some free time will allow you, if you wish, to treat yourself to a nice ice cream in one of the many typical and delicious ice cream parlors that surround it and ... if you like the traditions, to throw a coin in the fountain of the Dolce Vita, to make a wish and to ensure a return to the capital in the future! The last stop of the morning walk will be Piazza di Spagna, to fill your eyes with the great beauty of the most famous staircase in the world, the majestic church of Trinità dei Monti and the famous Barcaccia fountain by Bernini.
It will be lunchtime: a comfortable air-conditioned van will transport us to the Vatican area where you can have lunch in one of the countless restaurants / pizzerias in the neighborhood.
After lunch I will guide you inside the Vatican Museums with the most important collections, I will show you the Sistine Chapel and of course the St. Peter's Basilica with its masterpieces, between Michelangelo, Bernini and the many sacred memories.
At the end of the tour we will be in St. Peter's Square, near the Swiss Guards and the Vatican Post Office. If you wish, you will be free to explore the Basilica a little more until closing time ... ..
