Ever since Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck drove off into the sunset in the Oscar-winning film Roman Holiday, the Eternal City has been stealing hearts all over the world. And it’s easy to see why – after all, this is one of the globe’s most romantic and history-rich cities. With over 2,000 years behind it, there’s a sigh-inducing sight to tick off everywhere you look and this classical city coach tour allows you to squeeze everything in. Rome’s centerpiece is the iconic Colosseum, where you can relive the days of the gladiators. Other titans for the list here include the Arch of Constantine, the Roman Forum and Capitoline Hill – the most famous of Rome’s seven hills. You’ll see the Mouth of Truth, without running the risk of sticking your hand in, Circus Maximus and the ruins of Caracalla Baths, before heading to the more modern monuments. There’s the 5th-century Basilica Santa Maria Maggiore, the cavorting nymphs of Esedra Fountain and the gorgeous urban park, Villa Borghese Park. There’ll be a light lunch before you checkout the Vatican City. With your pre-booked tickets we’ll first head for the museums. Here you’ll find 50 percent of the world’s art and architectural treasures. It’s also home to the Sistine Chapel where you can crane your neck to admire Michelangelo’s 15th century masterpiece. Rounding things off is a visit to St Peter’s Basilica, the biggest church in the world.
Duration: Full Day takes 10hrs
Just so you know: Knees & shoulders must be covered when visiting any religious sites in Italy. Big bags may not be allowed inside St Peter's. During summer the Vatican Museums and its Basilica are very popular tourist destinations. Together with this it is also the special Jubilee Year, so you may experience long queues over 2 hours. We do, however, have pre-booked tickets to help reduce your waiting time for the museum. Lunch may be served either before midday or later in the afternoon so you may wish to take some snacks with you. On the morning tour of the city the sights are viewed from the coach and the Trevi Fountain cannot be seen from the coach.
