I always liked the idea of exploring a city like a local and Antonio just did that for me the best it could be! Picked up from our Airbnb Antonio suggested to treat us with an espresso at a small coffee shop he also likes. We .w everything in just 2 hours and he dropped us off to Trastevere for lunch around 13:00! Great recommendations and a history lesson from a great person.
You can visit all the places from the list or pick only the ones you like. Just inform your driver about your choice before the ride. During the stops you can do whatever you want: visit the landmarks, take pictures, ask your driver about the place e.t.c. Take as much time as you want within the overall time limit of the trip.
The massive stone amphitheater was commissioned around A.D. 70-72 by Emperor Vespasian of the Flavian dynasty as a gift to the Roman people.
Located almost in the 'geometric centre' of Rome, Piazza Venezia was named after the Cardinal Venezia who, in 1455, ordered the construction of his own Palace.
Designed by Nicola Salvi and completed by Giuseppe Pannini in 1762, Trevi Fountain is considered a late Baroque masterpiece and a symbol of Rome.
Built at the beginning of the eighteenth century connecting Piazza di Spagna and the Church of Trinità dei Mont Spanish steps is one of the most famous parts of Rome.
About the ride
Make the most out of your stay in Rome and let your local driver show you around in a 2-hour fully customizable tour. Admire the most popular attractions from the comfort of your own private car. Your Welcomer will share the historical facts, the necessary information about the sights and, of course, his personal input in order to immerse you into the Italian lifestyle. This tour can be booked separately or as an extension to your transfer. So your ride to or from the airport can be prolonged in order for you to enjoy some more time in the city.
You will start your tour in the ancient area of Rome, where you will enter a world shrouded in rich history and exquisite architecture. At this stop, you will find the Roman Forum, founded in the 7th Century BC, the Palace of the Emperor, and of course, the awe-inspiring 1Colosseum.
Next, you will travel up the ‘Road of Temples’ to the vibrant central hub of the city, the 2Piazza Venezia and of course the 3Trevi Fountain, and into the religious heart of Rome. Then you may choose to see the 4Spanish Steps and the 5Pantheon one of the most famous and well-preserved ancient buildings in the world or dig deeper into Rome's lifestyle and have a glimpse of one of its famous neighborhoods such as Trastevere. Along the ride take photos by the Fountain of The Four Rivers, and sample some of your driver's recommendations for the best pizza, pasta, or gelato in the city.
We recommend finishing up your tour with a stop at the Janiculum Hill, one of Rome’s 7 hills boasting the most beautiful views of the city. After the end of the tour, you may choose from continuing your stroll to the eternal city or be returned back to your hotel.
- Drink up an Italian Espresso if you choose to start your tour so early in the morning, to start the day with energy.
- After the tour ask your driver to drop you off at Trastevere for some lunch at a restaurant of his recommendation.

Frequently asked questionsExpand
Can I customize the tour based on my needs?
Of course, that is one of the main benefits of having a Welcome experience. You can customize every last bit of the experience, from points of visit to time spent per landmark to adding in an extra food stop.
Will there be an official tour guide?
An official tour guide is not included because the overall experience is centered around the driver and the local’s perspective. Although the drivers are very knowledgeable regarding the points of visit, at no point can they be compared with a licensed tour guide who can give more in depth information regarding historic facts and information. If you would like to include an official tour guide in the experience please let us know via email after the booking is completed.
What happens after I book?
Once you complete your booking you will receive a confirmation email. Feel free to reach out to our customer service team at firstname.lastname@example.org for any specific questions regarding your booking.
Do I need to be in a good physical shape?
The drivers are trained to adapt the experience depending on the type of participants. Whether you have kids or elders participating, the drivers know exactly how to handle special requests and provide an enjoyable experience accordingly. If you choose to be dropped off at the Acropolis, the climb up the Acropolis hill is the most physically demanding activity on the trip, so make sure you bring plenty of water with you on the way up!
Accessibility & Special Needs
Should anyone in your group have special needs or have advanced accessibility requirements, please specify upon booking and we will make sure to accommodate your needs and customize your tour accordingly.
Arrival at Meeting Point
Please be at the meeting point 10-15 minutes before the tour begins.
We recommend that you wear comfortable clothes and shoes and be equipped with wet weather gear if rain is expected. Please note that religious sites require modest attire- knees and shoulders must be covered.
In the summer months, the sun is especially strong (even on cloudy days) so we recommend that you wear a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen to protect yourself. Also, be sure to drink enough water throughout the day to stay hydrated.
Photography is permitted in most historical sites unless otherwise mentioned.
We recommend you always keep local currency on you (euro) as many local merchants do not accept cards as payment.
Terms of serviceExpand
- Please note that the Welcome Drivers are not licensed to be your official tour guide at the local attractions and therefore will not accompany you into the sites. You may, however, hire a professional tour guide at an extra cost.
- Your Welcome Driver will provide you with their local knowledge and personal recommendations between stops. Since your safety is Welcome’s top priority, please refrain from distracting the driver during demanding driving conditions.
