    What to Expect
    Start your 'Rome in Day' tour with the city's most famous ancient monument – the Colosseum. Walk through the interior and try to imagine the gladiator battles that took place there. Visit the nearby Roman Forum to see the Temple of Saturn, House of the Vestal Virgins and the Arch of Titus among other things. Go from ancient Roman monuments to modern ones with a stop at the Vittoriano on Piazza Venezia.

    Throw a coin into the water when you reach the Trevi Fountain to ensure your return to Rome. Stop for lunch (own expense) at one of the restaurants in the area before heading on to the Government District. See the Palace of the Council of Ministers, the Parliament and the Column of Marcus Aurelius.

    See the Temple of Hadrian on your way to the Pantheon, where you'll see tombs of Italian kings as well as the artist Raphael.

    Continue on to the Ancient Baths of Nero and then to Piazza Navona to see Bernini's famous fountain in its center.

    Visit the Vatican as your final stop. See the highlights in the enormous Vatican Museums, including the Raphael Rooms and Michelangelo's frescoes in the Sistine Chapel.

    Additional Info
    • Confirmation will be received at time of booking

    • Because of the growing popularity of the current pope Francis and his intense activity in organising mass events in the Vatican some areas might get closed last minute without previous notice. This has already happened this year and can happen again during your Vatican tour: the Sistine chapel and/or the Basilica of Saint Peter might not be accessible. In case of such events our tour guide will provide you with a valuable alternative focusing the tour inside the Vatican museums.

    Unfortunately, we only had one day in Rome (first time visit for all in our party) as it was only a port stop on our cruise. Fortunately, we booked with Raphael Tours and got a small taste of all the major historic sites I wanted to see while in Rome. Our driver picked our
