While there will be some time spent in the car, this tour involves quite a bit of walking and in archeological areas on uneven terrain.
Start your Rome in a day tour with a visit to one of the largest art collections in existence. Getting there early means you get to admire these works of art before the crowds flood in.

Look out for a tapestry that contains a spectacular optical illusion.
Stand beneath Michelangelo’s ceiling frescoes in person - they are magnificent.

The most important church in all of Christendom, the home of the papacy, and one of the most remarkable buildings ever built.
During the final part of your Vatican tour, pay a visit to one of the main highlights of St. Peter’s Basilica, Michelangelo's Pietà.
One of Gian Lorenzo Bernini's most celebrated works sits in the center of the basilica. Directly below it is the Tomb of St. Peter himself.

One of the most famed and charming piazzas in Europe.
Now home to Rome's famous stray cats, this is where Emperor Caesar met his end.
La Dolce Vita anyone? What else can we say. The Trevi Fountain is simply the most beautiful fountain in the world, and there’s plenty of time for a few wishes.

As part of the Colosseum tour, you'll visit the largest triumphal arch in Rome, built to honor the victory of Emperor Constantine who paved the way to Christianity.
The Arch of Titus displays one of the earliest carved reliefs of the Menorah. Learn about the Jewish Rebellion in A.D. 70 and its consequences.
See where Rome's eternal flame once burned. Hear how the Vestal Virgins, whose privileges were matched with extreme sacrifices, kept this flame burning and why.
This was once an ancient Roman temple in Rome, and later was adapted as a Roman Catholic church.
This Temple was built in honor of Julius Caesar. Legend has it, this is where his body was burned.
