Do you want to see the best of Rome without getting too hot and tired? Walking around in the heat can slow you and your family down quickly. A true experience with a maximum of seven visitors per car, this driving and walking tour includes most of the main attractions in Rome, plus plenty of hidden gems. Begin with a one hour walking tour of Rome, followed by a two-hour tour in an air-conditioned luxury vehicle. Your local guide will accompany you, as you tick off many of Rome's famous attractions from your bucket list.
 This three hour tour includes: 

  • - Passionate, English-speaking tour guide
  • - Air-conditioned and luxury transportation during tour 
  • - Stops at the Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, Piazza Navona and more.
  • - Visits to some of Rome’s hidden gems.

Important! Because some sites on this small group tour are religious, knees and shoulders must be covered for both men and women. We know that Rome is hot in summer - a great alternative is to bring a shawl/scarf/sweater with you. That way, you can cover your knees and shoulders when necessary.

Rome Walking Tour

Meet your English-speaking local guide in the Piazza Minerva, and begin your Rome walking tour. This is the best way to visit the main attractions in Rome, as they are all located close to one another in the center of the city. Stroll at a relaxed pace along Rome's picturesque streets. Visit the Santa Maria sopra Minerva church, the Pantheon, Campo de’ Fiori, Piazza Navona and of course, stop for some gelato (bring a few coins for gelato and to throw in the Trevi Fountain).

Rome Driving Tour

For the next portion of the tour, see more of Rome by comfortable, air-conditioned car. Drive by the sunken ruins of Largo Argentina, where Julius Caesar met his end. It’s here that a trio of ancient temples sit, and Rome’s largest colony of stray cats reside. Legend has it, the cats are hosts for ancient Roman spirits. Plus, pass through the Greek Ghetto on the way to the Aventine Hill.

Exit the car for a visit to Aventine Hill, a place that boasts one of the best views of Rome. While on the hill, there are opportunities for taking photos at several gorgeous vantage points. The southernmost of Rome’s seven hills, the Aventine Hill is also home to the Basilica of Santa Sabina (the oldest Basilica in Rome) and the Sant'Anselmo all'Aventino monastery. Go inside the Basilica of Santa Sabina, the best example of an early Christian church in Rome.

Walk Up Capitoline Hill

On the way to Capitoline Hill, get a glimpse of Circus Maximus from the car. Then, follow your guide to Capitoline Hill by foot. If you’re looking for that postcard view looking down into ancient Rome - this is it. At the best view point on the hill, admire the Roman Forum from an amazing vantage point. Then, get back into the car and head to the Trevi Fountain, where you can toss in a coin and make a wish. It's said that if you throw a coin from your right hand over your left shoulder, you'll return to the Eternal City.  

The last stop on this tour are the most famous stairs in the world - the Spanish Steps. This is where one of the iconic scenes in “Roman Holiday” takes place, in which Audrey Hepburn enjoys one of the best things in Rome - gelato. This is the last stop on the tour, but before you say farewell, ask your guide where to eat near the Spanish Steps. All our guides know the city like the backs of their hands.
