Rome In a Day

Code: JAMH008 

 

One of Joe Banana’s drivers will meet you at your accommodation in Amalfi for this memorable Rome in a Day tour.

 

Our drive will start along the famous Amalfi Coast and ultimately we will transition to the autostrada, traveling north to the Eternal City. After about 3 hours 30 minutes, we will arrive in Rome centre. 

 

The first stop will be at St. Peter's Basilica, which is the largest church in the world. Admire Michelangelo's "Pieta" and the beautiful Bernini Pulpit. Then continue on to the sites of Renaissance and Baroque Rome: the stunning Spanish steps, Piazza Navona and of course, not forgetting the city's most famous fountain, the Trevi Fountain. According to the legend, throwing a coin into the fountain will ensure that you return to Rome.

 

Next you will visit the heart of Ancient Rome: Capitoline Hill and the famous Roman Forum and the Colosseum, the symbol of the city and one of the world's most famous buildings where gladiator spectacles took place. Then continue on to see Palatine Hill and Circus Maximus.

 

During your local tour, your private driver will show you other attractions such as Castle St. Angelo and its bridge, the Italian Senate, The Marble Foot and Cat Street (Roman Curiosity), Trajan's Column, Imperial Fora, Trajan's Market, The Maps of the Empire, Arch of Constantine, Marcus Aurelius's Column, Parliament and Council of Ministers, St. Peter in Chains, temples of Apollo, Vesta and Janus, Quirinal Palace.

 

If you book in advance, it is possible to have a tour of the Vatican Museum (a private licensed guide is advisable and available at an additional cost) where you can admire the Sistine Chapel which contains frescos by Michelangelo, the Galleries of the Chandeliers, of the Tapestries and of the Geographical Maps, the Sobiesky Hall, the Immaculate Conception Hall and the Ancient Vatican Library.

 

For lunch you can choose between a quick bite to eat en route or a leisurely meal in a local restaurant. We will always be happy to suggest the best place in the area and we particularly enjoy taking visitors to quaint little restaurants where you will get an authentic atmosphere of Rome.

 

After this memorable day in the Eternal City, we will drive back to your accommodation in Amalfi, about 3 hours 30 minutes away.  

 

We reserve the right to change the order in which we visit the sites.
