Your LivTours Helicopter Tour Around Rome starts at your accommodation in Rome where you will be met by a chauffeur who will take you in a luxury climate-controlled vehicle to the Urbe Airport of Rome to go on one of the most exciting tours of your life. Upon arrival at the airport, you will be met by the welcoming airport staff as well as your LivTours private guide who will take to the air with you for the entire journey. The licensed pilot and helicopter crew will focus on showing you as much of Rome as possible, while your private guide focuses on sharing with you the treasures of Rome!

This adrenaline-filled tour is filled with beauty and excitement every single minute and is sure to give you a completely new perspective of the city – that is if you haven’t already! During your tour, depending on the amount of time you have booked, weather conditions, and weight restrictions, you will be able to see the city from above and perhaps some of the surrounding areas. The city of Rome is a designated no-fly zone, so no aircraft is permitted to fly directly over the center, but luckily the Eternal City has a small footprint and by hovering on the sidelines you get an absolutely clear, aerial view of all the major sites you have come to see.

Everyone is equipped with headphones and a microphone so you can hear your guide well and communicate easily, just like a tour on the ground! Feel free to pepper your guide with questions and let your private tour guide show you the beauty of Rome at high altitude. Your guide will start the tour by pointing out a few visual reference points while up in the air to get you oriented, while you take in the beauty from above. This Helicopter Tour Around Rome enables you to see the Colosseum as you have never seen it before –  highlighting the wonders of the urban architecture of ancient Rome from 2000 years ago. With Michelangelo’s famous dome jutting above the skyline, you will have a chance to admire the highest architectural structure in the city, no other building can surpass it height according to city laws! The gems of the city are all within your sight and the exhilarating feeling of seeing Rome from above is something simply amazing.

Your pilot will fly close to the border of the no-fly zone in northern Rome just above the famous Olympic Stadium area from here you will also get to see the Foro Italico, a 1938 sports complex built for the Olympics. You will see Rome’s Ponte Milvio Bridge, known as the love lock bridge of young lovers, and other sights including the Renzo Piano Auditorium, Pantheon, Palatine Hill, and on a clear day even the Castelli Romani mountains!

Once you have landed back at Urbe Airport, your chauffeur will be there to meet you and take you back to your hotel so you can unwind and take in the wonderful experience.

This is an unforgettable, once in a lifetime experience.

The longer the flying time you choose, the more comprehensive the aerial tour of the city will be. If you would like to see less of the city center views and instead make your way towards the surrounding areas of the city, let us know. Your pilot can fly over various other areas such as the Frascati wine region, Villa Adriana, and the Pope’s summer residence of Castel Gandolfo. You can also see sites such as Bracciano Lake, Odelscalchi Castle, the small town of Anguillara, and the charming town of Trevignano.

  • Rome seen from the heavens

    My husband and I have been to Rome but this was the first time for our 15 year old son. We booked all of the must-see things but the helicopter tour over the city was not just breathtaking but obviously a highlight for all three of us. It is indeed an enchanting city, seen from above as well as on the ground! If you can manage, this experience is really worth it!!
