The best tours to visit Rome (and skip the lines)

It’s love at first sight. Yes, we know how it happens: Rome is one of the most courted cities in the world. It’s easy to understand why: it’s beautiful, bright and offers a lot of things to do. But sometimes it’s not easy to choose where to start and what to see, because it can be crowded. And time never seems to be enough.

Here you find the three city tours we highly recommend for an exclusive visit of the Eternal City. The tours are organized by The Roman Guy, booking in advance is a must and can be done on their website.

  • Vatican Privileged Entrance Express Tour

Skip the line and get the opportunity to visit the Vatican Museums and st. Peter’s Basilica with an expert tour guide. This tour will cover the main highlights of these two symbolic attractions, from a privileged point of view, which will leave you speechless. Would you say yes to the Sistine Chapel and other priceless masterpieces without the confusing crowd? Are you willing to see “La Pietà” by Michelangelo and the Papal Tombs Crypts? Wear  a pair of comfortable shoes and get ready for this adventure.

  • Arena Floor Colosseum Tour with Roman Forum

It’s the symbol of Rome and one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern world. You can see the Colosseum from the outside, but it is definitely worth a visit on the inside. This “Gladiator’s Experience” tour will take you on a journey  into history: you skip the line and enter a restricted area as well, the reconstructed Arena Floor, which has special access requirements to the public. If you want to live a unique experience in a unique place, this is the right tour for you. Open your eyes and your heart!

  • Trastevere “Local” Food Tour

Monuments, museums, fountains are great, but food is another absolute must to add to your bucket list when in Rome. In order to avoid “tourist traps” and enjoy the real Roman cuisine, a guide will choose for you the best places in one of the most authentic neighbourhoods in Rome: Trastevere. You must be in shape and arrive with an empty stomach, because this tour will begin with an “Italian aperitivo” and finish with an artisanal ice-cream. 6 stops and 8 tastings are planned. Can you think about a better way to connect with locals?

If you don’t have enough time to try them all, there’s only one solution: visit Rome again soon!
