With so much to see, Rome tours are particularly popular with travellers in Italy’s capital. Whether it’s on foot or on four wheels, tours of Rome offer an efficient way to explore this fascinating city.
Sightseeing tours of Rome
One of the most popular ways to sightsee in Rome is on an open-top tour bus. These services allow travellers to hop on and off and key attractions. History buffs can take their time at the Colosseum and art fans can ogle at gallery collections, before re-boarding the bus for the next stop on their itinerary.
Open-top bus tours are an effective way to sightsee but can get very busy during the busy summer season. So for a more efficient – and healthy – way to see the city, choose a bicycle tour. Bicycles can be widely hired and many rental companies also offer their own bike-based tours.
Vatican tours can also be arranged in Rome. Although they’re not necessary, guided tours may help visitors understand a bit more about the Vatican’s place in the Christian world, and better appreciate its magnificent collection of art and sculpture.
Day trips from Rome
For travellers who want to venture away from Rome’s attractions, day trips to Mount Vesuvius and Pompeii also offer a new way for visitors to explore the area. For a glimpse of the beautiful Italian coast, consider tours to Naples and Capri, both of which are popular with sun-seeking holidaymakers.
