Description

Start your Rome afternoon tour with a hotel pickup, or alternatively, meet your guide in town -- near Termini Station. Head to Piazza Venezia by air-conditioned coach and begin your afternoon of Imperial Rome sightseeing with a walk around to soak up the sights. As you pass through the piazza, marvel at the sight of magnificent Il Vittoriano – a dazzling white marble palace that dominates the square and can be seen from just about every angle of Rome.

Stroll to Capitoline Hill for a walk around Piazza del Campidoglio -- the beautiful 16th-century square designed by the Renaissance maestro Michelangelo. Soak up views of the Roman Forum that sits below it, and envisage life during the days when Rome was founded, around 500 BC.

Return to your coach and ride through Rome’s downtown streets, passing pretty Aventine Hill and Circus Maximus, where chariot races were held during the times of Imperial Rome. Learn about the venue itself, and hear how it was once large enough to seat a quarter of Rome’s population!

Continue to the Church of St Peter in Chains (Basilica di San Pietro in Vincoli), and head inside for a look around this fascinating 5th-century gem. As its name suggests, the church’s main attraction is the chains that bound St Peter when he was imprisoned in Rome’s Mamertine Prison. After a brief spell in the ancient city of Constantinople, the chains were returned to Rome in two pieces, yet were said to have miraculously joined together when they reached the church’s altar.

Equally intriguing is the church’s Tomb of Pope Julius II, a lavish marble vault designed and sculpted by Michelangelo. His iconic Moses sculpture takes center stage on the façade of the tomb, and as you gaze up at it in awe, your guide will talk your through its defining features.

Leave the Church of St Peter in Chains and continue your tour, by coach, to the world-famous Colosseum. Skip past the long entrance lines with your priority-access ticket and head straight inside to see where Rome’s brutal gladiatorial games once took place. Walk around the first tier with your guide, seeing where the city’s different social classes once sat, and looking into the arena to see where the battles were fought.

Your tour then finishes outside the Colosseum in the late afternoon.

This was an enoyable tour. we had a great guide whose name unfortunately I don't recall! -- a pleasant way to spend an afternoon. There was considerable walking at each of the three stops, however especially Capitoline Hill, which included quite a few steps to reach the top. Also, it seemed we took a round-about way of entering the Colosseum, I recall it being much easier when I visited the Colosseum a couple of years ago. The coach was parked quite a ways from the Colosseum our last stop, so there was considerable walking back to the coach. Wear sneakers, and be prepared for a lot of exercise!

This was a great tour that focused on the Forum, the Colosseum and St. Pietro in Vincoli (St. Peter in Chains). It combined bus and walking, so was nicely balanced. What made it really great was our guide, Susana - she is of Chinese origin, a native of Peru, but a long-time resident of Rome. She was interesting, passionate about the city, and best of all, very funny. She really knows her Roman history and made it interesting and enjoyable for all. She even managed to herd us nicely through big crowds at the Colosseum. The Michelangelo Moses in the church is really amazing. Do be aware that Rome gets hot in the Summer, even in June, and there is a bit of walking and stair climbing in the Colosseum.

We liked this one because they picked us up at our hotel which was helpful, since we'd spent the morning on a tour of the Vatican. We probably would not have done two tours in one day, but this tour did give us an excellent overview of Ancient Rome.
