Always wanted to see the Italian Capital but Tuscany took your heart away? If you are in Florence, why not taking a day tour to Rome and get to see all the main sights in one day!

Just hop on the train in the morning, sit down, lean back and relax. Once in Termini Central Station, meet your fellow travellers and our friendly Italy on a Budget local tour leader on a walk that will take you through the charming streets of Rome, telling you the legends and history of the famous sights and hidden gems along the way.  

Sit on the Spanish Steps, throw coins in the Trevi Fountain, and marvel at the St. Peter's Basilica… A lifetime might not be enough, but you sure can make the most of a day!

We’ll stop for the best gelato,  and then you can join our optional, skip the line for our fully-guided tour of the Vatican Museum. You will have plenty of time left over to explore St. Peter’s Cathedral at your leisure or perhaps go back to the Colosseum and be amazed by it a little bit longer.

Our tour begins with a relaxed journey on a super fast train to Rome. First stop, Termini Station. Your guide will be waiting for you at arrivals and then it is a short , 5 minute metro ride to our first stop: The magnificent Colosseum! What a way to start the day in the citta eterna. Then we are off to the Piazza Venezia and the colossal Vittoriano through the legendary Forum. Making our way through the the streets of Rome, we’ll emerge at the top of the Spanish Steps to one of the best views of the Eternal City.  

The sights only get more iconic from here; next up is the Trevi Fountain, where your guide will teach you how to throw your coin over your shoulder (or maybe two?); Piazza Navona where you’ll learn all about Bernini, Rome’s version of Michelangelo; and the Pantheon, which for many visitors is the most incredible spot in the entire city.

After a short break at one of Rome’s best and oldest gelaterias, we’ll make our way to the Castelo di Sant'Angelo (ever seen “Angels and Demons?”). And there, looming in the distance, you’ll see the mother of all churches: Saint Peter’s Basilica, the biggest church in the world within the smallest country in the world (yep, you’ll be ticking off two different countries on this tour!)

You’ll have free time to explore the Vatican and charge your batteries (metaphorically and perhaps literally… there are lots of photo ops here!). Your guide will suggest the best places for lunch or a quick snack or how to spend the rest of the day is up to you: You can join our optional Vatican museum tour or perhaps sit down in one of the thousands of Restaurants that Rome has to offer?

How is that for a day in Rome!? Back to Florence will also be by fast-comfortable-stylish Italian train!
