What You'll do in this tour

Want a great introduction to Rome? Let Miles&Miles assist you in creating an unforgettable and stress-free journey!

Our History & Fun 5 hour tour is a driver guided tour to cover the major highlights of Rome. The tours are led by expert English speaking driver guides who will help to create a personalized experience while taking into account your specific interests.

We suggest this tour on one of your first full days in Rome to get a great introduction that will carry forward to the rest of your vacation. 

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. This incredible day enables 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. 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, fun and informative both historically and culturally, tour based on your interests.

The tour ends with a final "Arrivederci" at your hotel or if you prefer we can drop you off at a restaurant for lunch with some tasty local wine and homemade Ravioli by Nonna Mimma.
