The Basics

The archaeological ruins of ancient Rome include some of the most iconic sights in Italy, and they’re visited by millions of tourists each year. Long entrance lines are common at the Colosseum and the Roman Forum (especially in summer), so consider booking a guided tour or skip-the-line access in advance. A half-day tour with a small group can cover most of the sites on the Palatine Hill, while a private Colosseum tour offering evening access is an excellent way to enjoy the ancient amphitheater without the crowds. For a unique experience, consider booking a Colosseum underground tour to understand the inner workings of this iconic stadium.

This was definitely a recommended experience
From start to finish, this was an amazing way to be introduced to Rome. Andrea (Andy) was very knowledgeable and was keen to notice what topics peaked my attention to make the experience more customized to my interests. He was also very easy to engage with, and ensured all points of interests, or “instagramable” points, were not missed. Ivan was very professional and timely as he escorted us around the city, and was kind enough to offer future recommendations for restaurants and activities as well.

Rome by Night E-Bike Tour
Our Rome-by-Night ebike tour was a great adventure! Fabrizio served as a knowledgeable guide, leading us around some of the major sites and providing core historical background. Great presentation, considerate and friendly. Riding around on a Saturday night was a little harrowing at times but it will be a highlight of our trip! Thank you StarBike!

Rome private tour: skip the line tickets & private guide all included
What a great day exploring and seeing the top spots in Rome. We had a limited time and this tour provided everything. Georgia was a large reason why it was so much fun. He was prompt, very knowledgeable and so nice. We were a group of eight and he fit in as part of our group! The vehicle was clean and comfortable for all of us. Take this tour if you want to see all of Rome! If Georgio is your guide you will be in great hands!!!

Rome by Night E-Bike Tour
My friend and I did four different tours while in Rome. This was by far the best way to tour Rome! You get to see a different perspective of Rome at night and it's beautiful...also a great way to escape the heat during the day. We both had such a blast on the e-bikes and our tour guide Flavor Flav was awesome. Down to earth and knowledgeable guy. Would definitely recommend!

Our full day tour with Robert and our driver was incredible! My husband and I could never have seen that many things without the help and knowledge of this company. Also it wouldn’t have been nearly as enjoyable trying to. The knowledge that Robert shared along the way was invaluable and all the print outs he had for us were so so helpful! Thanks again for being so patient with us especially since it was a particularly hot day!

When to Get There

The sights of Ancient Rome are most crowded at midday, so consider scheduling your Rome tour around a visit in the early morning or late afternoon. Summer is the busiest season, when skip-the-line tickets or a private tour guide are essential; the sites are less crowded during winter.
