LivTours Semi-Private Rome in a Day Tour starts at the iconic Colosseum where you will meet your expert LivTours guide and the other travelers on your maximum six-person tour.  With LivTours’ privileged access into the Colosseum, you will skip the long entrance lines maximizing your time with your expert guide.  Once inside, you will learn about the construction, the uses of the imposing ancient building, hear stories about gladiators, theater shows, and wild animal fights that used to take place here. After some bloody gladiator stories and opportunities to take memorable pictures, your guide will share with you the nearby Roman Forum.

On your semi-private Rome in a day tour, your guide will share with you the amazing stories about Romulus and the Kings, Julius Caesar, Octavian, Hadrian, and many more while you stroll through ruins walking on original paving stones.  You will learn how the city of Rome first started and how it grew to become the largest political and military power of the ancient world.

Admire the beauty of the historic city center of Rome from the comfort of your seats! The next part of your Rome in a Day Tour allows you to experience a tour of the city in style, as you are driven around by a private chauffeur in a Mercedes Benz to Rome’s most famous monuments.

Once you are in the van, you will set off to explore the Trevi Fountain.  Do not forget to toss a coin in if you want to return to Rome!  Your expert guide will explain to you its striking beauty and interesting history. Continuing through the winding streets you will reach the ever-impressive Pantheon. Dating back to the 2nd century, it remains a unique example of an engineering triumph, with a dome unmatched to this day, it is an imposing presence in Rome’s historical center. Now it is off to Piazza Navona, the largest square in Rome, with its quintessential iconic square of Roman Baroque architecture.

Next on this list is lunch and once your driver has dropped you off near the Vatican you will have time for a quick lunch break (not included in the  price). With more energy, your action-packed day continues, with your guide by your side, in The Vatican Museums. Skipping the long lines, you will enjoy LivTours’ priority access, so get ready to see the highlights of the vast art collection housed here.  Your guide will make sure you see the lavishly decorated halls and visit the Gallery of Maps, Gallery of Tapestries, the Raphael Rooms, and of course, Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel.

Admire the masterpieces as your guide entertains you with the fascinating history of the Popes and the artists that worked for them. Your tour’s last stop is St Peter’s Basilica, the largest Catholic church in the world, where you will admire Michelangelo’s Pietà, the Bernini Baldacchino, and Michelangelo’s dome.

Great intro to Rome

"Did the Rome in a day tour which included a morning small group Vatican tour and half day Colluseum tour. Both had excellent guides with extensive knowledge. Would highly recommend especially if you are short on time."

Great tour of Rome with LivItaly

"Frederica was a great tour guide for first half of our day at the Colosseum and Roman Forum! Knowledgeable, friendly and engaging. Jade was equally great for the afternoon at the Vatican. Take this tour to enhance your Rome experience!"

Cathleen - USA

Rome in a day

"So much history, so much to see and learn. There’s no way you can pack it all in with one tour, but our guide Giulia did an amazing job. She was very friendly, and super knowledgeable about every aspect of this enchanting city: its history, art and architecture and culture. She even gave us a list of her favorite restaurants, and the two that we tried were amazing! LivItaly gets my praise- highly recommend, especially if you are visiting Rome for the first time."
