LivTours Private Morning Tour of Rome allows you to see a side of the Eternal City rarely seen by visitors. This itinerary starts when the city is just starting to stir and Romans are gathering at their neighborhood bars for breakfast.

While other tourists sleep in and Romans start work, you’ll be able to explore Rome’s highlights in the morning light.

See the sprawling Spanish Steps before they are crowded for lunch breaks. Discover centuries of architecture and history with your expert guide as you visit landmarks like Piazza Navona with its grand church and fountains. Toss a coin and make a wish at the incredible Trevi Fountain before the masses crowd around. Explore the ancient Pantheon, a monumental structure with a fascinating history.

Eco-sustainable tourism, designed to respect and support local culture, art and traditions

Your LivTours Private Morning Tour of Rome begins at the iconic Spanish Steps. These 138 steps bridge the steep gap between two major Roman streets and are typically lined with tourists and locals taking a break later in the day. Your early start will allow you to see it before it’s crowded! Explore the charming, narrow streets with shops and bars as you continue on your Roman morning journey. Snap pictures of the hidden treasures you find along the way as they come alive in the morning sunlight. Your guide is a local expert and excited to share with you stories and tidbits about the incredibly rich culture and history of Rome!

Start your day with a typical Roman breakfast, small, sweet, and caffeinated! Eat a fresh Italian cornetto, a classic layered pastry that can be plain, with cream, or chocolate. Have a strong Italian style espresso or a warm, frothy cappuccino with it too!

As you continue on your morning walk through Rome’s center, visit the incredible Pantheon. Originally a pagan temple, this magnificent monument is unforgettable. With its tall columns outside and its intricate marble and tombs inside, this landmark is without a doubt one of Rome’s finest highlights. Learn about the architectural genius behind this piece of history. Nearby you will find the one of a kind Trevi Fountain. At the site where three roads intersect, the Trevi is a wonderful example of 18th-century design and sculpture. Touch the cool waters and toss in a coin, bright and early before the crowds arrive.

No walk of Rome’s city center would be complete without visiting the oval shaped Piazza Navona. The shape of this important city square comes from its original function, a 1st century AD stadium where 30,000 spectators gathered. Today you can admire its Baroque church and fountains along with local artists selling their works.

This private tour is the perfect opportunity to experience the highlights and quaint streets of Rome in the calmer morning hours. Become a Roman for an entire morning as you explore with your local guide!

  • Fantastic tour and tour guide

    This tour was amazing! Strolling around Rome in the morning is the BEST time and we had so much fun with our guide, Giulia. She's extremely knowledgeable but had lots of fun stories to add to make the history come alive. The whole experience was exactly what we were looking for and we can and will recommend this particular tour to everyone we know. Great job, LivItaly!

  • Charming guide for our morning walk

    Our very knowledgeable and charming guide, Thomas, took as around the sites of Rome at a pace that was comfortable and a time when we were not trampled by other tourists. I learnt so much and really enjoyed it. Would definitely recommend.

  • Highlight of our trip

    AWESOME! This morning walk gave us the opportunity to see the major sites while the city was quiet. We were the only people at the Trevy Fountain and the Spanish Steps! That would never happen any later in the day! The guide was very informative and was happy to stop and take pictures whenever we wanted. A definite highlight of our trip!

  • Rome in the morning! The BEST!!

    My daughters and I had a fantastic time on our morning walking tour in Rome! Our guide, John, took us on a great route though the city center that allowed us to see the major sites early enough in the morning before they were filled with tourists. He also took us off the beaten trail to see some sites that weren't listed in our guide books. I highly recommend this tour!
