Full description

Join this two-day private sightseeing and historical tour to discover the Eternal City. On the first day, you will be picked up at your hotel in Rome, though the exact departure time may vary—the final program will be sent to you via email a few days before the tour. Your private driver will bring you away from the usual tourist itineraries to capture the unforgettable sensual atmospheres of charming squares like Spanish Steps, Piazza Navona, and Santa Maria Della Pace. You will then appreciate the Baroque masterpiece, the Trevi Fountain, the silent flow of the Tiber River, and the beautiful Pantheon. Your promenade will continue to Emperor Hadrian’s Mausoleum and legendary Ponte Sant'Angelo to enjoy a fantastic sight of the Castello Sant'Angelo. After a 1-hour break for lunch (not included) you will have a skip-the-line private tour of the Vatican Museum. Here you will see the art collected by Popes throughout the centuries, the Gallery of Maps with views of the Vatican Gardens, the Tapestry Gallery, and eventually, the Sistine Chapel painted by the Renaissance genius, Michelangelo. On the second day, you will embark on a 45-minute tour of the mysterious catacombs, situated along the old Appian Way, some 93 miles (150km) of underground galleries used as cemeteries by early Christians under Roman persecutions. After the tour, you will have a small panoramic tour to reach Colosseum. After a 1-hour and a half break for lunch (not included), you will have a private skip-the-line tour in the symbol of the Ancient Roman world, the Colosseum. Discover the construction techniques invented by the Romans, and hear about the skills of the gladiators and the violent exotic animal fights. Afterward, explore the Palatine Hill, the residence of the Roman Emperors, and the Roman Forum, the center of political, religious, and commercial life at that time. You will see the old Senate House, Temple of Vesta, Triumphal Arches of Constantine, Titus, and Septimius Severus.

We had fantastic guides for all activities. The VIP tour is a great value. We saw more of Rome than we could have if we tried to purchase individual packages. We were able to tailor the tour of Rome to our family desires. Tour of Rome and Catacombs were provided by Marco Aggettola and crew. They were all great! At the Colosseum our guide Lucina was fabulous and at the Vatican we had Giuse, who was wonderful. All guides were very friendly and knowledgeable.

Wir hatten 2 Tage vormittags von 10:30 bis ca 15 Uhr einen Fahrer, der uns vom Hotel abholte (schwarzer Mercedes V-Klasse mit Klima) und uns bei div Sehenswürdigkeiten hinaus ließ. Am ersten Tag Pietro F. ein extrem sympathischer älterer Herr, am 2. Tag Carlo, ebenfalls sehr nett. Beide konnten sich auf Englisch gut verständigen. Unsere Reiseleiterin für den Nachmittag war Katharina, eine Römerin mit Deutscher Mutter. Katharina studierte Kunstgeschichte u war sehr versiert was all unsere Fragen anbelangte. Man muss sich nur ein Wenig drauf einstellen, dass man z B in den Katakomben eine englische u keine deutsche Führung bekommt. Überhaupt, wenn man so wie wir kein Italienisch spricht, muss man sich eben oft bei div Führungen mit Englisch begnügen, auch wenn es theoretisch auch deutsche Führungen gibt, werden diese auch mal in die englischen Gruppen integriert. Wir waren auf jeden Fall sehr zufrieden und fühlten uns rundum wohl. Wir waren Ende September hier.

Driver took us to great places we had never heard about - so many gems. But spent way too much time on guided tour through the coliseum and the forum was a rush without time to absorb or appreciate.
