Meet a guide at a central location in ancient Rome, then set out on a route through the historic city that can be tailored to your group’s interests and preferences. The first stop of the day is the Circus Maximus, where ancient Roman charioteers raced before hundreds of thousands of spectators—the Circus Maximus could accommodate at least four times more people than the Colosseum.

Here and throughout the tour, your guide helps bring the ancient world to life, telling stories, and using an iPad as a visual aid; take advantage of your time with a private guide to ask questions about Roman life, history, and culture.

Continue to Aventine Hill to see some of Rome’s most elegant houses, on quiet streets lined with fragrant pine trees. Stop to see the medieval churches of St. Alexius, Boniface, and Sabina, which contain remarkable collections of art and relics. Keep walking to the “Aventine Keyhole,” where you find a gorgeous view of St. Peter’s Basilica from a tiny hole in a garden door.

The final stop of the tour is the Orange Garden, also called Savelli Park, where you'll finish the tour strolling between rows of bitter orange trees, and looking out over gorgeous views of Rome.
