Let your driver guide reveal the very heart of ancient Rome and its lifestyle, through a tour of its architectural gems and archaeological sites. Begin in Piazza Venezia, bursting with awe-inspiring buildings and statues. You'll then continue to the breathtaking Capitol Square, born of Michelangelo's architectural genius. From here, you can soak up splendid views over the Colosseum and the ruins of the Forum, where commerce, religion, and politics flourished at the height of Roman power.

The Forum's arches, including the Arch of Titus, give an idea of the sheer scale of the buildings that once presided over the city. You will also pass the Pyramid of Caius Cestius, born of the Egyption craze that swept Rome, and the remains of the Circus Maximus, where spectators crammed in to watch popular chariot races.
