What You'll do in this tour

Even though Rome was not built in a day, we will sure do our best to show you the best of Rome and then Focus in on the Ancient Roman sites without the Vatican in a day.  Let Miles&Miles assist you in creating an unforgettable and stress-free journey when you take this tour! Our Full Immersion Day (City Tour + Ancient Rome) combines a driver guided tour with a walking tour to cover the major highlights of Rome. The tours are led by expert English speaking guides who will help to create a personalized experience while taking into account your specific interests.

Our tours will allow you to be able to catch a glimpse of daily Roman life hidden behind ivy-clad corners, open-air markets, and underground passageways long forgotten through the centuries. These incredible services enable you to tour the city with a native Roman tour escort showing you the real face of the city they are so passionate about. The tours are available in English or Italian, and are delivered with an insight and style that keeps our tours entertaining, fun, and informative.

Tour Description:

To begin, you will be picked up at your hotel lobby in a clean, comfortable, air-conditioned van by our experienced driver guide for your City Tour. In the spirit of “when in Rome, do as the Romans do”, we will take a morning coffee break for the best cappuccino in Rome at the famous Saint Eustachio Bar, hidden just behind the Pantheon. You will explore a number of amazing sites and will have the ability to get out of the van for pictures or to take a closer look. This will not be a drive-by tour but rather go at your pace, based on your interests.  Lunch will soon follow with some tasty local wine and homemade Ravioli. We are happy to provide suggestions based on your tastes and budget. Now that you have had a great overview of Rome and a delicious lunch, your driver guide will introduce you to your walking guide for your 3 hour Ancient Rome "The Emperors" tour.

Your walking guide will be at your side to help you to understand the history of Rome from 753 B.C. through more than 1,200 years of Roman domination until the fall of Rome in 476 D.C. We will be covering the Monarchy, Republic, and Empire periods during this 3 hour walking tour.

We will start out exploring the main level of Flavian’s Amphitheatre, known all over the world simply as `'the Colosseum”. This structure is today still an important symbol for the Romans standing 50 meters high overlooking you like an old warrior, tired, but still full of pride. Walking next to the Arch of Titus, we will make our way to the Palatino Hill, where Rome was founded 2800 years ago and home to most of the Roman Emperors. The Palatino is considered by the Romans to be the most important of the seven hills.  Just down the hill you will reach the Roman Forum which was the center of any kind of decision-making whether it was financial, religious or politically based. The Roman Forum truly was the heart of the city and the brain of an empire that reached 60,000,000 people in the second century D.C.  Last but not least, you will arrive at the Campidoglio Hill.  It is not just the current seat of the Mayor of Rome but was the most important religious hill in Ancient Rome due to the fact that the temple of the three of the most important gods for the Romans (Minerva, Giove and Giunone) was located here. You will end your tour here with a most a spectacular view of the whole of the Anient Roman sites you have just covered. 

Choose this tour when you want to see the City of Rome and the heart of Ancient Rome all in one day. With our guides you will have advanced access to skip the line. Keep in mind you will need to plan for transportation following your walking tour since the driver guided portion will end when the walking tour begins.
