About the ride
If you want an in-depth look at the most popular landmarks and historical sites in Rome and are looking for a whole day trip, then the ‘Best of Rome’ tour is ideal for you. At the beginning of the tour, your Welcome driver will pick you up directly from your chosen accommodation, and take you on your tailor-made journey through the most iconic, historically significant and beautiful sites in Rome. Although your tour is completely customizable, and points of interest can be added or taken away, the following itinerary is one we suggest to use as a base.
You will start your tour in the ancient area of Rome, where you will be dazzled by the rich history and exquisite architecture. At this stop, you will find the Roman Forum, the Circus Maximus, an ancient Roman chariot racing stadium, the Palace of the Emperor, and last but not least, the awe-striking and magnificent Colosseum. As an added bonus, because you have chosen Welcome as your tour company, you are able to skip the lines and enter the Arena of the Colosseum if you wish. At this stop, you will also have the option to climb Palentine Hill, the centermost of the seven hills of Rome. This is recommended as it’s home to the ruins of Domus Augustana, and it also boasts the best views of the Roman Forum and the Circus Maximus in the entire city.

Frequently asked questionsExpand
What happens after I book?
Once you complete your booking you will receive an email with more details about the Best of Rome in a Day tour, your Welcome driver, and any more information you need to know regarding this experience. Feel free to reach out to our customer service team at firstname.lastname@example.org for any specific questions regarding the experience.
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.
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.
Please wear comfortable clothes and shoes and be equipped with wet weather gear if rain is expected. In addition, please note that religious sites require modest attire- knees and shoulders must be covered.
BOOK YOUR TICKETS IN ADVANCE
We strongly recommend booking your tickets for the Colosseum in advance. You can ask your Welcome driver about prices, times and general information on tickets.
BE AWARE OF THE HEAT
In the summer months be sure to wear sunscreen, sunglasses, and perhaps a hat, to shield yourself from the sun. We also recommend staying hydrated throughout the tour with the water provided.
Bring cash in the form of local currency (Euros), as many of the local vendors don’t accept card payments.
SPECIAL NEEDS & ACCESSIBILITY
Please let us know if anyone in your group has special needs, or specific accessibility requirements, and we will be sure to accommodate your needs and tailor the tour accordingly.
