We invite you to watch our explainer video here.
If you have a theme in mind for a personalized excursion to Rome but need a hand with the specifics we’ll be happy to help you with suggestions. Architecture, ancient Rome, art, history — these are all great points of departure for a personalized tour of Rome.
Do you already have a list prepared? Benissimo! All we’ll need do is sort out the timing and route.
Been to Rome previously and have seen all the classic highlights? Nessun problema! The supply of things to see in Rome is almost endless.
Here are some suggestions of popular and interesting sights in Rome, to get you started creating the perfect tour. We’ve divided them into primary and secondary groups according to popularity. The things on the secondary list are just as impressive as those on the primary list, only less visited (which might be a good place to start if you want to avoid the throngs of high season).
Primary sights in Rome and Vatican City
Secondary sights in Rome
Choose the sights and we will come up with the schedule for your custom day trip. Please keep in mind that the Vatican Museums/Sistine Chapel are closed on Saturday afternoons and Sundays.
IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING TICKETS:
Please be aware that tickets are guaranteed only when booked.
Booking tickets this year has become almost impossible and we’re struggling to find slots available.
The Vatican opens availability 2 months ahead the selected date and the Colosseum opens availability one month ahead. We will do our very best to get the admission tickets for you but if by this time we are not able to secure tickets, then those are not guaranteed.
We will have to relay to other suppliers but it’s not guaranteed.
You will be notified in case of lack of unavailability and offered an alternative solution for you to still have a wonderful experience during your visit; for example at the Colosseum, you may decide to only see the Roman Forum which is another good attraction and instead of the Vatican we can take you to see other beautiful churches in Rome.
We will be able to provide a certain answer regarding availability 7 weeks ahead for the Vatican and 4 weeks ahead for the Colosseum, in refer to the selected date of your tour.
You will be then free to decide how to move forward with your tour, of course.
This may cause some inconveniences, but we wanted to inform you in advance and be transparent with our customers regarding this whole situation.
Thank you very much for understanding.

Is gratuity included in the price?
Tips are never included in our quotes. We think that a tip shouldn’t be included in the rate otherwise it would be a tax!!! Once in Italy do not feel as though you have to tip everyone because someone told you to. Tip only if you really liked the service. Tips are generally: 10% not bad 15 % great 20 % best tour in my life. Please report any abuse.
