Day 1     ———————————————————————————————————————–

On your first day, you will enjoy a 6-hour tour of Rome.

Rome in Limo drivers are professional fluent English speaking drivers so that you don’t need to worry about understanding what you’re being told. You certainly don’t want to go through a whole day with someone who isn’t a clear English speaking! That would be a real stress! But not with us!

You’ll be driven to the historical center of the city, where you will be greeted by the Victor Emanuel II Monument. Most people refer to it as “the Wedding Cake”. As a matter of fact, it does look like one!

Close to the Victor Emanuel II Monument, you’ll find the Capitoline Hill, the
Ancient Roman Forum, and the Colosseum. You can choose to enter the Colosseum, but to do that, you need to make sure you have gotten your tickets in advance!

When you book your tickets to the Colosseum you will not find a scheduled entrance time since they are valid throughout the day. Tickets include entrance to the Colosseum and the Roman Forum, but you can still see most of the Roman Forum from the terrace on the Capitoline Hill or from the sidewalk close to the Colosseum, so if you want to have more time to spend at other sites you can consider seeing the Roman Forum from the outside only.

After your visit to the Colosseum, you’ll drive by the Circus Maximus, to get to the Pantheon and Navona Square, where you can enjoy a nice gelato! From here, you’ll drive to the Spanish Steps and then on to the Trevi Fountain.

Of course, there will also be time for lunch! Your driver will suggest where to eat based on your desires. You can choose a nice Italian restaurant, to enjoy a typical light lunch or a quick Pizza bite on the way, to make the best of your touring time. That’s entirely up to you! In the late afternoon, after the tour, your driver will take you back to your hotel in the city.

Day 2     ———————————————————————————————————————–

On your second day in Rome, you will enjoy a 3-hour tour of the Vatican.

You will need to reach the Vatican Museums, where you will meet one of our licensed walking guides, who will take you through 3 hours inside the site. The guide will be waiting for you opposite the Vatican Museums Entrance, in front of the Caffè Vaticano, holding a sign with your name on.

Please remember to get tickets to the Vatican Museums in advance to avoid the long line for those who need to purchase the tickets. Tickets have closed numbers so you will be required to insert the entrance time, which is suggested at 9 am. If for any reason you are unable to get tickets for this entrance, please remember to let us know and we will schedule your tour around the entrance time you have booked.

The Vatican Museums are truly vast: they spread over 7 kilometers, that’s about 4.4 miles! So there is no way you get to see all that’s worth seeing in such a short time, but our guide will ensure you see the most important artifacts without wasting time!

The Sistine Chapel that is the highlight of the tour, where your private guide will explain in detail the work and study of the master Michelangelo for creating this magnificent ceiling. The tour ends with St Peter’s Basilica where you will explore the glorious baroque art and Michelangelo’s Pietà and end in St Peter’s Square for the last of many picture moments.

Day 3     ———————————————————————————————————————–

On your third day, you will enjoy a 6-hour tour of the “off the beaten path” sites in Rome.

Rome is literally filled with attractions, but some of them are further away from the rest or simply considered less important and often overlooked. On this day you get to see the most beautiful, a chance not many tourists get.

You will meet your driver once again at your hotel in Rome in the morning. From there you’ll be driven to the Appian Way just outside the city, where you can enjoy a relaxed stroll in the peaceful Roman countryside, walking on the same cobble-paved road the Ancient Romans did!

The Appian Way was the first road built by the Romans to reach the southern outposts. It extended for over 350 miles, all the way to what is today the “Heel” of Italy. Today most of the Appian Way has been repaved, but the stretch in Rome still has the original large blocks used by the Romans and is preserved very well.

Another stop you’ll make in this area is to the Ancient Roman Catacombs. The original Roman custom was cremation, after which the ashes were kept in a pot or urn, but later on, inhumation became more fashionable. Strangely enough, because Roman laws forbid burial inside the city walls! Of course, at that time the Appian Way was not inside the city.

Tickets to the catacombs don’t require pre-booking and can be bought on location. Visiting the Catacombs on your own is not permitted since the underground maze is quite vast and you could get lost, therefore, you will be escorted inside by the  Catacomb staff with a small group of people.

After your visit inside the Catacombs, you will enjoy another great Ancient Roman accomplishment, the Park of the Aqueducts, where you can walk along one of the impressive Roman Aqueducts which provided tons of water to the city daily.

You will have time for lunch before heading to the other side of the city, passing by the Baths of Caracalla and reaching the Aventine Hill to look inside the “Key Hole”, that shows a perfectly framed view of Saint Peter’s. Then you’ll drive across the River Tiber to reach the Trastevere area.

The most bohemian part of the city where they say the “true Romans” live. Here you can visit the splendid church of Santa Maria in Trastevere, one of the oldest churches in Rome, which features exquisite mosaics depicting the life of Mary.

Your last stop, before going back to your hotel, will be the Janiculum Hill. The highest hill in Rome will delight you with a spectacular view of the whole city at your feet.

Rome in Limo’s Rome 3 Day Package Tour is offered only as a private tour, not a shared one, but if you make friends at the hotel and wish to share the tour with them, you are welcomed to do that, so long as you advise on the final number of people in your party in advance. In this case, please remember that fares vary depending on the number of participants.
