We will provide skip the line access for the Colosseum and Vatican, as expert private guide to ensure your visit is as interesting and time-efficient as possible. Visiting Rome in one day may seem like an impossible task. There is so much to see that it can be overwhelming deciding which sites are the must important.

With this tour you will maximize your time, focusing on Rome’s greatest hits. The perfect mixture of the many layers of Rome, giving the city its nickname the ‘Eternal City’. In our Rome in a Day private tour we ensure you cover Ancient and Baroque Rome as well as the Vatican City.

You will enter the symbol of Rome with pre-reserved access, saving you valuable time. Not only will your private guide tell you all about the gladiator combats which took place inside but will also give you an overview on the fascinating history of Ancient Rome as you look out over the ruins of the Roman Forum.

Next up on your Rome in a Day private tour, you will fast forward to the Baroque period in Rome. You will stroll around the city center admiring the famous fountains and squares which adorn Rome, such as the Spanish Steps, Navona Square and Trevi Fountain.

On request we can provide you with 3 hours private driver for this portion of the tour to maximize your time and allow you to see other sites outside of the city center like the keyhole and Circus Maximus.
