Tour Itinerary

Tour duration: 2.5 hours.

Charming by day, Rome is absolutely romantic by night and this tour provides the chance to experience the city by moonlight.

At the Trevi Foundation, recall the scene from Oscar Academy Award winner La Dolce Vita by Federico Fellini while your expert guide shares the history of the Fountain. Throw a coin over your shoulder into the water to make sure you come back to Rome.

Continue towards the Piazza della Rotonda where you will admire the majestic Pantheon - the best-preserved Roman temple - and learn about the millennial history of this monument. You might also remember the scene from Ocean’s Twelve with Brad Pitt and Catherine Zeta-Jones set here.

At the Piazza Navona, a square beloved by the Romans, you’ll see the Fountain of the Four Rivers designed by Bernini and featured in many movies including Angels and Demons.

Just outside the square, you will board the bus, to enjoy a relaxing panoramic tour, discovering Rome’s most famous monuments.

Your guide will tell you about the Castel Sant'Angelo, originally built as a mausoleum for the emperor Hadrian and then transformed into a safe haven for the Popes thanks to the passageway that connects it directly to the Vatican. For opera lovers, this is the place where the Tosca by Puccini comes to its tragic end.

Continue to via della Conciliazione, Tiberina Island and The Mouth of Truth, made famous in the classic movie Roman Holiday with Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn. The coach tour continues past the Circus Maximus and the Palatine Hill and it ends at Rome’s most famous landmark the Colosseum, which was also the set of Ridley Scott’s The Gladiator.

The tour will end near the Colosseum.
