Stop At: Colosseum, Piazza del Colosseo, 00184 Rome Italy
As you step inside this imposing ancient structure allow your imagination to explore what the Colosseum was like in its full glory: more than 50,000 roaring spectators appearing like confetti as they filled the seats around the arena where gladiatorial battles, animal hunts, public executions, theatrical plays, and many other forms of entertainment unimaginable in modern society took place for the public's enjoyment.

Duration: 45 minutes
Pass By: Circus Maximus, Via del Circo Massimo Between Via dei Cerchi and Via del Circo Massimo, 00153 Rome Italy
The Circus Maximus is the large ancient stadium where chariot races were held for the pleasure of Roman citizens and royalty. Listen closely and you can almost hear the roar of the crowds and the galloping of the horses’ hooves as they race for the finish. Envision chariot races as seen in the famous film Ben Hur.
Stop At: Roman Forum, Piazza Santa Maria Nova, 53, 00186 Rome Italy
Your next stop in Rome's historic center will be Capitoline Hill where you will be treated to a panoramic splendor sweeping across the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill from a terrace known for the most picturesque view.
It is incredible to imagine that the vast remains of temples and public buildings in the Roman Forum were once part of the most important center of the Roman Empire as it served as its political, legal, financial and religious nucleus.
Duration: 25 minutes
Pass By: Piazza Venezia, 00187 Rome Italy
As you drive through Piazza Venezia, you will also have the opportunity to see from the comfort of your vehicle the Vittorio Emanuele II Monument that was dedicated to the first king of Italy.
The monument is also blindingly white, making it highly conspicuous as it sits among the ochre buildings surrounding it. Its stacked, crowded appearance has caused it to be saddled with several nicknames from "Zuppa Inglese", "the wedding cake", and "the dentures", while Americans liberating Rome in 1944 labeled it "the typewriter", a nickname also adopted by the locals.
Stop At: Pantheon, Piazza della Rotonda, 00186 Rome Italy
Once an ancient pagan temple of all Roman gods. Several centuries later it became a Christian church and burial place for Italy's kings and notable artists such as Raphael.
It is the best preserved of all ancient Roman buildings, and perhaps the best-preserved building of its age in the world. The Pantheon is the oldest standing domed structure in Rome as well as in continuous use throughout its history.
Entry fee to this site is € 2 per person to be paid on site.
Duration: 30 minutes
Stop At: Trevi Fountain, Piazza di Trevi, 00187 Rome Italy
Trevi fountain is the largest Baroque fountain in the city. Legend has it that if visitors throw a coin into the fountain, they will be assured a return to Rome.
The current interpretation is that two coins will lead to a new romance and three will ensure either a marriage or divorce. Another current version of this legend is that it is lucky to throw three coins with one's right hand over one's left shoulder into the fountain.
Duration: 30 minutes
Stop At: Spanish Steps, Piazza di Spagna, 00187 Rome Italy
The Spanish Steps is where you will find the famous 18th-century winding steps that connect the square below to the French church of Trinita dei Monti above.
Below is the early 1600’s Baroque fountain, “Fontana Della Barcaccia”, or “The Fountain of the Old Boat”, a type of shallow boat popular for carrying wine to the port of Ripetta. The unique fountain is credited to Pietro Bernini, the father of the famous Gian Lorenzo Bernini.
