Tour description provided by Viator
Discover beautiful Rome on this full-day private tour from Florence. With a private driver, travel by luxury vehicle to the Eternal City, and start with a 2-hour walking tour led by an in-the-know private local guide. Walk to top Rome attractions such as the Trevi Fountain, Pantheon and Spanish Steps, and then, after free time for lunch (own expense), reconvene with your private driver for a panoramic city tour. Pass Rome's other iconic landmarks, including the Colosseum, Roman Forum and magnificent St Peter's Square before returning to Florence.
Start your private day trip with a pickup from your centrally located Florence hotel. Meet your friendly driver and board your luxurious air-conditioned saloon or minivan.
Then, relax and enjoy the roughly 3-hour journey south as your driver gives you a taster of the day ahead and the history of Italy’s capital, known as the Eternal City.
On arrival in Rome, meet up with an expert local guide for your 2-hour private walking tour. As a private tour, the itinerary is flexible, so feel free to ask your guide to tailor the route according to your wishes.
Start at the bustling Piazza di Spagna to view its world-famous Spanish Steps — the 18th-century staircase that sweeps up to the Piazza Trinità dei Monti above.
Then, walk through boutique-lined streets to the next treasure: the Trevi Fountain. Toss a coin in the waters and then continue on to the 2nd-century Pantheon, one of Rome's greatest ancient buildings.
Pose for photos at the colonnaded temple and admire its vast dome as your guide casts light on its history. Then, having explored here, make your way to the splendid Piazza Navona. Ogle the square's beautiful architecture and spend time admiring its showpiece, Bernini’s ornate Fountain of the Four Rivers.
Your walking tour comes to an end here, when you take your leave of your local guide. Afterward, enjoy free time for lunch (own expense) and then meet back up with your private driver for your panoramic tour of the city's other highlights.
With your driver at the wheel, glide by the Colosseum, the site of countless gladiatorial contests, and pass the must-see Roman Forum. Then, cross the Tiber River to admire St Peter’s Square, the vast square crowned by St Peter’s Basilica and Bernini’s glorious colonnade.
Lastly, soak up city views from Gianicolo Park before traveling back to Florence, where your trip ends at the original departure point.
