PICK UP TIME 10:00 am to avoid big crowds at least in the first part of the morning.

THE BEGINNING Luca will start with an introduction. He will make you understand more about how Rome became so powerfull and such an amazing place to visit. YOU WILL START FROM LARGO ARGENTINA, where Julius Caesar was murdered.

COLOSSEUM and CIRCUS MAXIMUS Luca will drive up an higher point, facing the Colosseum. He will explain a lot about the Colosseum and you will be able to take pics as well. But you will for sure understand more. Done with the Colosseum, he will drive you past the Circus Maximus and you will stop there for pics as well.

THE HISTORICAL DRIVING-BY On the way to the next stop, your drive is going to be intense and breath-taking. You’ll go by the so-called “Road of the Temples” and over to the current heart of the city with the view of the Palatine Hill and Piazza Venezia with two very important monuments/sites (the so-called “Wedding Cake – or Monument dedicated to the first king of Italy and the view of the sadly famous balcony of Mussolini).

VIEW OF THE ROMAN FORUM Stop on a favored spot for the amazing view of where there were the commercial, political, economic, religious and social activities during the ancient Roman Civilization.
