Know More about this tour

Start your morning with either a hotel pickup or by meeting your guide near Rome Termini Station. From this point, your classic Rome tour heads to Rome’s centro storico, passing through Piazza della Repubblica to see the Fountain of the Nyadds (Fontana delle Naiadi).

The centro storico was made for carefree strolling, with a myriad of cobbled footpaths and picturesque piazzas, lined by buzzing pavement-side cafés. Baroque churches, fountains and palazzos built during the Renaissance are scattered around, adding to the oh-so-Roman charm that abounds.

Amble to Trevi Fountain, hearing about its coin-throwing traditions from your guide, and then stop to throw one in yourself. Do it according to legend: throw one coin to visit Rome again, two coins to fall in love with an Italian, and a third coin to marry one! After posing for photos in front of the dazzling masterpiece, stroll over to the Column of Marcus Aurelius, and then walk over to Palazzo di Montecitorio -- an elegant Bernini-designed palace that is now used as a parliament building.

Head inside Rome Pantheon and marvel at the interior of the city’s best-preserved ancient monument. Officially a church, the Pantheon contains several tombs of eminent Italians, like the Renaissance genius Raphael. Pose for pictures from the outside and then walk from Piazza della Rotonda to Piazza Navona to admire its lavish Bernini fountains.

Hop back on board your coach and end your tour back at the start point. Alternatively, request a drop-off at one of four different locations; simply let your guide know on the day.

Full-Day Tour:
Want to see more of Rome? Upgrade to the full-day tour, and after your morning tour, spend a couple of hours at leisure for lunch (own expense), and then meet your guide at a pre-arranged time for your afternoon tour. By coach and on foot, see the sights of Imperial Rome, including Piazza de Campidoglio on Capitoline Hill, Circus Maximus, and the Church of St Peter in Chains. Finish with a skip-the-line Colosseum tour.

Full-Day Tour with Lunch:
Upgrade to the full-day tour and include lunch at a restaurant close to Vatican City or Termini Station in between your morning and afternoon tour.

  • Great tour, our tour guide was friendly and very professional, informative.

  • Excellent tour of the top sites of central Rome highlighted by our ,87 year old guide who was worth the price of the tour himself! The bus stops in 2 locales and then you walk a fair bit which was fine for us but hard for some of the party to keep up.Very good way to begin your vacation and orient yourself.

  • Saw all the sites we wanted to see!!!! The guide was so knowledgeable and very fun to be with!! Great day!!!!!!!

  • Very good

  • Tour guys was very old guy and really was not into giving you much information about the sight except how old it approximately is and what the name of it was. It was sort of waste of time and frustrating after taking another tour which was so informative and interesting. Green line seems so very commercial and can care less about it really. Only good part about it was that we happen to take it on Sunday and we ended at Vatican and were able to see the Pope.

  • Great tour, a nice overview of city highlights. The only disappointment was that the tour did not include the interior of St. Peter's Basilica. We have since recommended this tour to everyone we know who is going to Rome. People just need to be aware that there is quite a bit of walking in the city center.

  • This was the worst of all the tours. When we bought the ticket, we double checked that the 3 hr tour did not cover the Vatican area which we had just covered the previous day. The Viator person assured us that the Vatican area would not be covered and Spanish steps would but we were lied to.

  • Great. Our tour guide knew all about the colosseum and even did some of the excavation work there!

  • Great pace to see so much! Excellent information and accommodation.

  • The first part of the tour, the walking tour was wonderful. Very friendly and informative guide. The second part they have you wait for an hour or two before the second part, was terrible. Our guide for the Parthenon did not speak very good English and she was quite rude. We got a refund for this.
