Top Rome Tours

  • Complete Vatican Tour. Explore the Vatican Museums, including the Sistine Chapel, and pay a visit to St. Peter’s Basilica.
  • “The Great Beauty” E-Bike Tour. This tour is inspired by one of my favorite movies of all time, La Grande Bellezza. See many of the sites featured in the movie, from the Janiculum Hill down to Piazza Navona, while cruising around on an electric bike.

For private tours with individual guides, I recommend my friends at The Catholic Traveler and Understanding Rome.
