Your chauffeur-driven carriage awaits as an experienced guide will weave their way from Janiculum Hill to the Coliseum and beyond, sharing many insights of this timeless metropolis. Depart from your hotel and experience a journey through history finished off with a delectable dinner– all included in the price.
Ascend the second highest hill in all of Rome and admire the splendor of a sparkling skyline from this lofty outpost. There are few better vantage points from which to relish the domed edifices and beautiful bell-towers of the city that in a Rome night tour offer an enchanting urban spectacle.
Sights at Janiculum Hill include the church of San Pietro in Montorio, rumored to be the location of St Peter’s crucifixion.
Descend from the heights of Janiculum Hill and pass beyond the Tiber, only to be confronted by the marvelous Castel Sant’Angelo. Then, move onwards to the enchanting St. Peter’s Square: set within Vatican City in front of the famed St. Peter’s Basilica, a Rome night tour offers the chance to capture the most iconic photos of this towering monument. At the heart of the piazza lies an ancient Egyptian Obelisk, dated 1586. The square didn’t take its ultimate form until almost 100 years later, thanks to the inspired design of Gian Lorenzo Bernini. It was he who introduced the colonnades that now frame the surrounds.
Together with St. Peter’s Square, there are few more recognizable edifices than that of the Coliseum. The structure of the largest amphitheater ever built, marks the center of the city and neighbors the impressive Roman Forum. The amphitheater, which dates back to AD 72, held crowds of up to 80,000 locals baying for blood during gladiatorial spectacles, as the man fought the beast to the delight of thousands. The Coliseum is the purest form of empirical power on display throughout the country and always the top of Italy tourist attractions.
Traverse the inspiring Imperial Forum towards the illuminated Piazza Venezia. We included in our Rome night tour because its imposing marble monument to Vittoria Emanuele II becomes ever more dramatic as day folds into the night.
Once home to the embassy of the Republic of Venice, the piazza is the central hub of the city where several roads intersect.
Bring the night to a close in the charming Campidoglio Square – the spectacular spot from which to enjoy further panoramas of the Roman Forum. Dedicated to the god Saturn, Mons Saturnius, evolved into Capitoline Hill; or Campidoglio, in Italian.
Beyond lies the Roman Forum: the ancient marketplace where day-to-day life continued unabated for centuries with many a triumphal procession, public speech, gladiatorial march, and political campaign run in its surrounds.
The rich archaeological history of the site now attracts upwards of 4.5 million sightseers a year.
