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.

Using Viator to explore ancient Rome in one day was the perfect thing. Our outstanding guide, Patrizia, had admission tickets ready and we NEVER waited in a line! She shared so much history in a very captivating way at each site. Our driver, Andrea, was superb in getting up to places and transporting us to the next adventure. Perfect tour of the Eternal City thanks to those two superstars! Lunch was wonderful. This day was worth every Euro paid!

Max was prompt to pick us up at our ship and provided an exceptional day of sightseeing in Rome. He was knowledgeable and informative and made sure we saw all the high points in Rome. We saw everything. This is the only way to see Rome. We were driven close to each venue, skipped the lines, rode up private elevators. Highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants a comprehensive visit to Rome with an extremely experienced guide.

Memorable experience with our guide Andy. Andy was very informative, personable, and fun. He was always willing to take a photo or spend as much time as we wanted on topics that interested us. We were able to see the Colosseum and Vatican without waiting in extremely long lines. The car was a nice break from the walking we had been doing all trip. We are very thankful we did this tour.

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.
