Ancient Rome, Pantheon and Vatican City: Rome an overall view

The taste of Rome’s history and beauty through a full immersion in its wonderful monuments, a magical and unforgettable experience!

Probably it doesn’t exist on earth a museum as amazing as the Vatican Museums. You will admire Greek and Roman statues and objects but also Baroque and Renaissance arazzi together with frescoes and paintings, bas-relief and trompe l’Oeil. All of these displayed in long galleries richly decorated inside the Popes’ Palace. The Museum’s heart is the Sistine Chapel. After you will access Saint Peter’s Basilica, the biggest church in the world filled with artworks. When visiting Rome suddenly the past becomes our present. Once in the centre of ancient Rome you’ll discover the Colosseum. It will recount its functionality, the sharpness of the Romans’ engineers and the excitement of the public while admiring gladiators’ battles. Walking through the Forum, the heart of the Empire administrative and political power, you can have a real feeling of how live was in the ancient Rome. Afterwards we will go right to the top of the Palatine hill where the Roman emperors lived. From there the view is breathtaking.

Our two tours booked through Emanuele were awesome.  Our tour guides were very knowledgeable and pleasant.  I would highly recommend Romebylocals to book your Italy fours.  They were very responsive and the rest of the members of my family (all 13) agreed.  Thank you for making our experience memorable.  I will see you in 2 years

We requested 3 tours for our family of 7.  We specifically wanted something that was intimate and designed for just us- to have a personal experience where we would be submerged in the Roman culture and history, while at the same time having an open dialogue with the tour person.  All our tours were amazing and the experience was top notch.  I feel that we learned so much more having these personal tours than we would have using a large group tour company.  One member of our family had some limited physical abilities and both tour guides were very accommodating.  The experience will never be forgotten!

Emanuele was extremely easy to work with on our bookings.  He was very responsive, professional and just downright a joy to work with all around!  Romebylocals exceeded all expectations!
