This auction is for a History & Fun Half Day City Tour of Rome, which lasts approximately 5 hours (starting at 9am from your hotel). This driver guided tour will introduce you to Rome and covers the major highlights of Rome. The tour will be led by an expert English speaking driver guide, who will help to create a personalised experience while taking into account specific interests.

When visiting Rome, this tour is ideal to be taken early on in your stay to give you a great introduction that will set a great foundation for a wonderful stay in this magical city.

The tour will allow you to be able to catch a glimpse of daily Roman life hidden behind ivy-clad corners, open-air markets, and underground passageways long forgotten through the centuries. This incredible tour enables you to explore the city with a native Roman tour escort showing you the real face of the city they are so passionate about.

The tours are available in English or Italian and are delivered with an insight and style that’s entertaining, fun, and informative.

Tour Description:
You will be collected from your hotel lobby in a clean, comfortable, air-conditioned van by an experienced driver guide. In the spirit of “when in Rome, do as the Romans do”, you will then take a morning coffee break for the best cappuccino in Rome at the famous Saint Eustachio Bar, hidden just behind the Pantheon.

You will explore a number of amazing sites and will have the ability to get out of the van for pictures or to take a closer look. This will not be a drive-by tour but rather go at your pace, fun and informative, historical and cultural, tour based on your interests.

The tour ends with a final “Arrivederci” at your hotel or if you prefer we can drop you off at a restaurant for lunch with some tasty local wine and homemade Ravioli by Nonna Mimma.

Please note: lunches and gratuities are not included in the tour. When you visit the Colosseum, note it is prohibited to bring backpacks, camping or other bulky bags or luggage / trollies. You are allowed to enter with medium and small size backpacks carried on a shoulder which must be checked by metal detectors and or opened and visually inspected by the Urbe Security Institute, responsible for the entrance inspection. Colosseum admittance is not available on the first Sunday of any month due to the fact that this is a free day and tickets cannot be arranged in advance and the lines would be too long.

Colosseum Ticket Information:
Miles&Miles will pre purchase your Colosseum tickets with their own account and not yours so that you can skip the line but, PLEASE keep in mind that there is a security line that you must still go through to insure the safety of all and this cannot be skipped. Please be advised that you will still have to wait through the security line and this is not avoidable nor is it in our control. Length of wait has been varying based on the day of the week and how many security screening lines they have opened up.

Admission ticket includes one entry each site with an inside visit to the Colosseum though you will enter unguided since this will be during the driver guided portion of your day. The driver guide will give you the full history of these sites before helping you to skip the line and enter and time to explore the inside on your own.

In case you would like to visit the Forum or Palatino on foot on the next day you can use your ticket to enter the Roman Forum and Palatine hill within a 24 hour period.

Headsets may be required at the Colosseum for particularly busy days. They are generally 1.50 EUR per person

Admission Prices: 17.00 Euros per adult (18+) and 5.00 Euros per youth 0-17. Please be prepared to show proof of age for children on the tour that are 17 and under. Valid ID must be in the form of an official photo ID (or photocopy) such as a passport, student ID or driver`s license.
