Rome wasn’t built in a day, but through our Best of Rome tour you can sure see it in one! This itinerary takes you on a cultural and artistic journey through the highlights of Rome, in the company of your very own expert guide. Discover the masterpieces of the Vatican Museums, skipping all lines as you do so, and enter into the pinnacle of High Renaissance art: the Sistine Chapel. Then take a view of the epicenter of the Christian world, Saint Peter’s Basilica, before discovering the secrets of its square with your expert guide.
We’ll then drive you straight from the Vatican to the immortal Colosseum – the quintessential icon of Rome’s ancient might. Glimpse through its concrete arches as you venture inside the apex of ancient Roman entertainment. Your tour finishes with a view over the Roman Forum where you can decompress your experience as our expert guide brings this once active center to life with myths, legends, and accounts about the rise and fall of Rome’s mighty empire.
Wander through the Vatican Museums
For such a masterpiece of High Renaissance art, some anticipation is required. We start with skip-the-line tickets to the Vatican Museums where our expert guide leads you to discover the most impressive pieces in the Vatican Museums’ collection of ancient art.
Lose yourself in Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel
We won’t let your current feeling of awe dissipate as our guide walks you down the Hall of Tapestries lavishing on you the historic tales and explanations of the mythology portrayed. Continue on to the Gallery of Maps to see the changing world over the ages. Beyond the next doors lies the Vatican’s pièce de résistance – the Sistine Chapel.
Michelangelo’s masterpiece stretches out above you, portraying a story your expert guide will narrate. Trace the brush strokes of this genius of the Renaissance, interpret the parables, and bask in the gloriously lit masterpiece.
Discover Saint Peter’s Basilica
To finalize your visit to the Vatican, your guide will take you to Saint Peter’s Square, with a magnificent view of Saint Peter’s Basilica up next. Here, Bernini’s colonnade acts as an ideal spot to decompress and contemplate the magnificence of what you’ve just seen.
Visit the mighty Colosseum
With skip-the-line entrance, your guide will lead you through the massive arches into the colossal structure built by the rulers of the Flavian Dynasty. Your Best of Rome tour takes you through the stadium and covered passages within the Colosseum, once known as the Flavian Amphitheater. With its monumental size, it’s nearly impossible to believe it was all made in one decade, millenia ago. Walk through the ages as our personable guide tells the tales of the rise and fall of this majestic structure. Experience the fear and excitement encouraged in the masses though lively tales and historic accounts.

Then we walked through the market to pick out some of the ingredients, the meats and such. Then we went back to their excellent small group kitchen. We had a wonderful time learning from Sara. She taught us to make ravioli and saltimbocca and tiramisu. It was fun and relaxed and extremely delicious. We thought the whole experience was splendid. 10 out of 10. read less - 9/26/2022

We got to try a ton of different food and even returned to one of the restaurants later in the week. The tour groups are kept small, so our group easily got to know each other throughout the tour. We were especially pleased with how accommodating it was: My fiance is a vegetarian and can be a bit of a picky eater, so he had low expectations going in and this ended up being his favorite activity all week! We actually had a couple of vegetarians in our group and there was always an equally hearty substitute whenever necessary. Super pleased with this experience and with Luca! Best part of our week! read less - 9/21/2022

A great evening with plenty of incredible local food and drink and a really good way to meet and get to know other travellers. The small group size made it much more personal and conversation flowed all evening! Sara (our guide) was absolutely amazing - so friendly and chatty, and so full of knowledge about the local food and Rome/Trastevere's history. She could not have been better.
I'll be coming back to Rome and will definitely be booking this again. Thank you so much, Sara, for making my first trip to Rome that much better! read less - 9/21/2022

This was my third time to the Vatican but this time I took my adult/teen children and wife and we used a tour guide. It was a small group of 9. Just 2 families. She was great. She does this 4 days a week and all the guards knew her by name. If you want to see the Sistine Chapel, then you have to go early. We were one of the first to enter and with her connections basically did not wait on anything. We also entered a section in the Vatican Museums usually off limits to the public, a section with many animal statues and other mosaics. She gave us so much history and culture. My children said it was AP World History made real. You could tell she truly loved what she did. read less - 8/29/2022

It was a very hot summer day and she always looks for ways to give us the information under the shade before we went into the sun. I highly recommend this company and Martha as well. It was very easy to make the reservation and pay. We took the private tour and was perfect. 3 hours that feel like Half hour . We didn’t do any limes to get into the places. Know that if you go by yourself or in other yours you could be up to 2 hours under the sun to get into the coliseum or forum. I highly recommend the private tour. read less - 8/05/2022
