This is the ideal tour for you who are staying in Florence and want to visit Rome in a day!

I’ll show you the highlights of the Eternal City in a day visiting all the major attractions of Rome. I’ll  pick you up from your hotel in Florence, then by fast train to Rome (about 1 hour and 30 minutes ride from Florence to Rome).

We’ll start with a visit to the Vatican Museums, largest collection of artworks in the world, to see the famous Sistine Chapel, frescoed by Michelangelo, and some other highlights. We’ll then visit St. Peter’s Basilica, the world’s greatest Catholic church, and St. Peter’s Square, where the Pope provides his public audiences. We’ll then walk to St. Angel Castle, former Tomb of Emperor Hadrian, we’ll cross the Tiber River on an Ancient Roman bridge, and after a walk through a Renaissance district we’ll enter Piazza Navona, with its famous baroque fountains (quick lunch in a typical restaurant). Then visit to the Pantheon, the best conserved temple of ancient Rome, then on top the Capitoline Hill to see Piazza del Campidoglio designed by Michelangelo. Next stop will be the Roman Forum: the political and religious center of  ancient Rome. Our last visit couldn’t be other than the Colosseum, most famous monument in Rome, where the gladiators fought to the death and exotic bests were hunted. Then train back to Florence.

I am not going to give you a lecture – unless you want to – I will be informative but I won’t overdo with too many dates and names, I will make your visit fun with anecdotes and legends, you will have time to enjoy a typical local meal, a coffee or an ice cream: I know you are here on holiday and and your holiday is meant to be fun!
