What You'll See on this Best of Rome experience! - Rome city sightseeing is packed full with historically significant buildings, impressive works of art, fountains and hilltops with panoramic views. Many visitors to Rome take two or three vacations to see all the big sights, never mind Rome's hidden gems.

You'll visit a statue by the famed sculptor Gian Lorenzo Bernini and moment later you'll walk inside a church to be confronted by a statue carved by the legend Michelangelo. Hear stories of the surrounding neighborhood that was plagued by flooding. Even see marks etched on the outside of a famous church to show record flood levels! This is all in just 15 minutes of the tour!

Your local guide will explain the circus that lies beneath one of Rome's most beautiful piazzas as you admire the fountain that makes an appearance in Dan Brown's Angels & Demons. See yet another amazing sculpture built by Bernini and hear wives’ tales about two feuding artists.

After Piazza Navona you'll hope back into the car and head in the direction of the Capitoline Hill to see a breathtaking view of the Roman Forum. You'll also see a staircase designed by Michelangelo and the statue of Marcus Aurelias.

We'll drive by the Circus Maximus on the way to the Aventine Hill. You'll see an ancient Basilica located next to the Orange Groves and one of Rome's best and least accessible viewpoints.

Our final destinations will be the Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps. You'll have plenty of time to get out at the Trevi Fountain to hear the story behind this iconic symbol of Rome, take plenty of photos and throw your coins into the fountain. Our tour will end atop the Spanish Steps. You can walk to get food or a drink after your tour. Be sure to ask your guide where the best places to go in the area are!

Type Of Service: Vatican Neighborhood Evening Food Tour – The Best Places to Eat near the Vatican – small group tour

Explore the best places to eat near the Vatican on our Vatican Neighborhood Evening Food Tour. Sample delicious Roman food, Italian wine and eat dinner at one of the best authentic trattorias in Rome. Includes gelato (of course!).

Visiting the Vatican Museums is an excellent way to work up an appetite. After soaking in all that culture, art and history, figuring out where the best places to eat near Vatican City is a challenge. Don’t get tricked into eating at overpriced tourist trap restaurants, explore the Vatican neighborhood with a local foodie guide by your side! Each neighborhood in Rome has its own local institutions, family-run trattorias and sometimes their own local dishes. The Vatican neighborhood is no exception. 

 The areas surrounding the Vatican are what we call the Vatican neighborhood, and the area is full of amazing food. If eating the best local food is as important to you as visiting the Sistine Chapel, this is the best Vatican tour for you. As you take a leisurely stroll along the picturesque side streets, your guide will not only feed your belly with local favorites, but also your soul with fun-facts and stories that connect the food to the Vatican City State.

 Food and the Vatican State - If you know the history of the Popes, you know that many of them loved their grub! In 2015, Pope Francis went on a diet because he was gaining too much weight. He blamed it on the amount of delicious pasta he'd been eating since moving from Argentina to Italy - and who could blame him?

 The Best Pizza in the Vatican Neighborhood - It's impossible to come to Italy and not eat pizza. One thing that Pope Francis says he misses the most, is watching football and eating pizza. Try some Roman pizza or "pizza al taglio" on one of our first stops. Meet the masters behind the food and learn why they not only consider their food the best pizza in the Vatican neighborhood, but also the best pizza in Rome! 

 Cured Meats, Cheese and Wine - The first stop on our Vatican Neighborhood Food Tour is a hole-in-the-wall “prosciutteria”. This spot is a great go-to if you're staying in the area and want to bring a picnic along with you on a day trip. The Roman Guy loves wine, so we incorporated a small wine tasting experience into our food tour. 

 Our local wine enthusiasts will introduce you to two special wines and help you open up your palate to distinguish the different wines produced in Italy. Don't forget the names of the ones you like, you can always visit the place again during your vacation and pick up a bottle (or three!).  With a glass of wine in hand, learn about a variety of Italian cured meats & cheeses. 

 Rome Best Street Food - If you're a fan of "Italian" food, you've probably heard of arancini. These delicious balls of rice are stuffed and coated in breadcrumbs before being fried. The arancino (or arancini in plural) is typical in Sicily, but in Rome, we have our own version. Learn the difference between Sicilian arancini and Roman rice meatball and how the two destinations battle for the best rice snacks in Italy. 

 The Best Restaurant near the Vatican - After eating your way through the Vatican neighborhood, arrive at our all-time favorite Trattoria in Rome. The family who owns and operates this place are local celebrities. We'll sit down for hearty Roman dinner with lots of pasta, seasonal antipasto and even more wine. As you chow down, your guide will explain the history and origin of each dish, plus what ingredients it uses and how to make it yourself

 Best Gelato Near Vatican City - Italians eat gelato year-round. In hot Rome summers, the dessert is an excellent way to cool off. During the rest of the year, it is simply too good to pass up! At this gelateria, you won’t find additives, false colors or powdered flavorings. Everything here is made with 100% fresh produce, with many different flavors.

Type of Service: The Original Crypts and Catacombs Tour - small group tour

Your tour starts at one of the Roman Catacombs, the Eternal City’s underground burial chambers where long winding passages unfold millennia of history among tombs and inventive handmade memorials, taking you to a time when Christianity was considered a simple cult whose members were executed as pagans and buried as martyrs.

Then it’s on to Basilica San Clemente where the sound of running water drove one clergyman to dig his way through the floor tiles. What he discovered were 'wedding cake' layers of history piled on top of each other so that visitors today climb down to a 4th century church, the 2nd century remains of a Mithraic temple and finally ruins that date back to the Great Fire under the reign of Nero in 64 AD. You'll even see the working aqueduct that led to the excavations in the first place. With ruins reaching nearly 60 feet deep, it makes you wonder what lies beneath the rest of Rome.

Your journey through the centuries ends with a bang at perhaps the most memorable sites – the Capuchin Crypt and Museum. Here the remains of 4,000 Capuchin monks literally rest in pieces. Their remains have been used to decorate the underground crypt with vertebrae chandeliers, real-life skulls and cross-bones and robe-clad skeletons leering from the walls. Morbid fascination or respectful art? You’ll be the judge of that.

Much of what Rome has to offer is buried underground and through this tour – the only tour that takes you to crypts and catacombs from different historical eras in locations across the city – you can discover the true underside of Rome.

Things to Know:

  • Tour is offered every day at 2:30pm /Tour check-in by 2:15pm
  • Visit the eerie Capuchin Crypt also known as the 'Bone Chapel', the ancient Roman Catacombs and San Clemente Basilica - the 'Lasagne Church', where you descend from the 12th century to the 1st
  • With transport and all costs included, you'll be able to relax and enjoy your expert, English-speaking guide
  • Traveling in groups of 20 or less, your guide will have time to answer all your questions
  • Wear comfortable walking or tennis shoes - (no heels, boots or flip-flops)
  • Entrance to churches require a strict dress code for men and women – knees and shoulders must be covered (no shorts or sleeveless tops)
  • Meeting Point Location:  In Piazza Barberini, at the Tritone fountain located at center of the square – map and more details available upon booking
  • Please arrive at the specified meeting point ready for a prompt departure
  • Please note that the Crypts and Catacombs are located in small, dark areas, with narrow paths and low ceilings. As the venues are underground there are no windows. We do not recommend this tour if you are claustrophobic.

  • Catacombs of Domitilla, San Callisto or San Sebastiano

Type of Service: Full Day Pompeii Tour from Rome with Mt. Vesuvius Volcano - small group tour

Discover Pompeii and the still-active volcano that brought the bustling Roman city to its terrible end on this exclusive day trip from Rome to Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius. Explore the city of Pompeii with an expert, English-speaking guide who will help you make the most of your time here. In 1.5 hours, you’ll see the most fascinating sites of the city, from plaster death casts to Pompeii’s fast food joints and streets cut out by carriage wheels 2,000 years ago. Visiting on a day trip, it’s impossible to walk all of Pompeii, but our carefully-planned route means you’ll see the best of it, with the most representative and well-preserved buildings it has to offer.

During our time in Pompeii group sizes will be limited to 25 people or less with headsets for every visitor, so your guide will be easy to hear and interact with. Like all tour operators, we use official, licensed Pompeii guides for this section of our tour. However, as is the case with our own staff, these guides are carefully chosen by us. We constantly evaluate Pompeii guides and ask for feedback from every customer to ensure that we only use the most talented and knowledgeable in their pool.

Another high point of our tour comes when we climb to the ridge of the crater of Mt. Vesuvius. This destructive force, which buried Pompeii in 79 AD, is to this day considered one of the most dangerous volcanoes in the world because of the 3,000,000 people who live around its base. Lava flows have scarred the sides of the volcano and are visible on the winding road up to the top – where you will take in incredible views over the Bay of Naples and its islands below.

During the winter season (November 20th - March 31st) and on days when Mt. Vesuvius is closed due to weather conditions, your tour of the past will take you to the National Archaeological Museum of Naples instead. Here you’ll see a fantastic array of artifacts, mosaics, statues and artwork excavated from Pompeii and Herculaneum – the perfect way to complement a visit to the ruins.

With transport to and from Rome included on a comfortable, air-conditioned coach, an expert, English-speaking tour leader to accompany you for the day and traditional Neapolitan pizza lunch, you won’t have to worry about anything but what you came to see. Take the extra time to reflect on one of Italy’s most fascinating sights – a city buried that was buried for thousands of years before being rediscovered 'frozen' in time.

Type of Service: VIP Amalfi Coast Tour from Rome by High-Speed Train with Mozzarella Tasting

Take in the marvels of the Amalfi Coast on the only guided day tour from Rome via high-speed train. This is your chance to experience the UNESCO recognized landscape, as well as see its top ‘jewels’, the towns of Amalfi and Positano, all with captivating insight from a local expert guide throughout the day. In addition to the stunning vistas and awe-inspiring towns, you’ll also get off the beaten path for a taste of one of the region’s world-famous specialties - Mozzarella and other local cheeses - from a working cheesemaker that produces this delicacy fresh every day.

Our Amalfi Coast tours from Rome meet at the city’s central railway station from where you’ll be whisked off to Naples. After meeting your local guide in this city by the sea, you’ll take a comfortable private coach into the winding roads and lemon orchards that characterize this part of Italy as you hear the local history and get insider recommendations from your guide. Enjoy the incredible views of the lush mountains, crystalline sea and colorful villages that characterize this paradise.

The first stop is the most picturesque town on the entire coast, Positano, whose houses seem to tumble down to the sea amid narrow alleyways, chic boutiques, restaurants, and ‘Dolce Vita’ cafés. Despite its glamor, Positano was once a nearly abandoned fishing village until it was ‘rediscovered’ by the elite. Come here and it’s easy to see why. Its charm will seep into your pores as you shop for local ‘limoncello’, visit the church of Santa Maria Assunta or soak it all in from a restaurant terrace.

Your next stop is the former capital of the maritime republic that gave the area its name, Amalfi. Once one of the most important trading powers in the Mediterranean, this port city in miniature is home to a dazzling piazza, pristine medieval cathedral, and streets that will captivate you with their fairytale-like flavor. Have free time for lunch, climb the staircase to the Cathedral (‘Duomo’) and its arabesque cloister, as well as shop for Amalfi’s handmade ‘bambagina’ paper. If you prefer the beach, the tiny bay is also an inviting place for a dip.

After taking in the crown jewels of the Amalfi coast, travel up the mountains that cradle it to take in more incredible views.

Type Of Service: Local Foodie Tour in Trastevere with Wine & Dinner

Embark on a food tour in Trastevere that offers an excellent introduction to one of the best foodie districts in Rome. Walking around the Eternal City is an excellent way to work up an appetite; a food tour is the best way to end your day of sightseeing. Led by a local foodie guide, visit some of our favorite restaurants in Rome. 

Roman Bakery and Pizza - At this stop, learn more the history of bakeries, or forni, in Rome. Get acquainted with a major part of Roman culinary tradition by ordering a hot square of pizza bianca for lunch. In Rome, people line up for these olive oil flat breads stuffed with prosciutto, parmesan and rocket. As opposed to red pizza served by the slice (al taglio), pizza bianca is not what most people associate with pizza. After you've tasted this treat, you'll understand how pizza need not have sauce or cheese to be delicious. Pizza bianca is a piece of chewy and crispy culinary heaven. 

Roman Street Food - While a sit-down meal of creamy carbonara accompanied by copious amounts of Sangiovese is more likely associated with the best Italian fare, street food is nothing to sneeze at. Some of the most delicious cuisine in Rome includes quick and casual street food. From deconstructed pizza sandwiches at Trapizzino to traditionally fried filetto di baccala at Dar Filettaro’s near the Campo de' Fiori district, Rome street food is hard to beat. In the spirit of experiencing the joy of Roman street fare, enjoy a stop at one of our favorite local spots. 

An Authentic Roman Restaurant - An evening food tour in Rome isn’t complete without a stop for a multi-course Roman dinner. Sit down and relax in a friendly local restaurant and sample an antipasto starter, tastes of two popular Roman pastas, a traditional meat dish, and wine. No Italian dinner is complete without a digestivo to wash things down and help you digest your meal. Limoncello will be served at the end of your meal and only then will you feel like a true paesano. As opposed to the other stops on this walking food tour in Rome, this is your chance to rest your feet, enjoy your dinner and learn more about what makes the Eternal City so special when it comes to dining. 
 
The Best Organic Gelato in Trastevere - You didn't think we'd finish a food tour without gelato, did you? If you've been to Italy, regardless of the time of year, you'll know how important it is to end the evening with a gelato. It's a staple food for Italians. Learn how to spot good quality gelato from ones with additives and try some new flavors. From caffè to fragola to pistacchio, there's a gelato flavor for everyone. 
A day of food and fun; put on your comfortable walking shoes and come with an empty stomach!
