Rome Highlights From Your Hotel in Rome

Ready to start your great day in Rome? Your Rome in Limo driver will come pick you up directly at your hotel in Rome, ready to take you and your family through a great tour of Rome in a day. We suggest an early start, to make the best of your time for the day.

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! Not with us!

For your comfort and safety, our fleet includes only latest model Mercedes vehicles. You’ll be spending some time on board our vehicle and we want you to be comfortable! Our Mercedes vehicles all feature Air Conditioning and Comfortable Spacious Seats. Plus all the latest Safety Technology available on the market.

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.

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!

After lunch, you’ll drive to the Vatican Museums, where you’ll have about 2 hours to explore the Museums, the Sistine Chapel, and St.Peter’s Basilica. There are two ways to go about this part of your tour: you can choose to enter on your own or have the aid of one of our licensed walking guides.

Our licensed walking guides have an added fee, not included in the tour price, but definitely worth it! Why? You might ask! Well, for starters because 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 and having the aid of a guide would ensure you see the most important artifacts without wasting any time!

An added plus is that licensed guides have access to St.Peter’s from the inside of the Sistine Chapel, while plain tourists have to backtrack through the Vatican Museums, walk to St.Peter’s and go through security check again. You’d be saving quite some time with a licensed guide!

Now, it will be time to meet the driver again and head back to your hotel!
