Trip Info

Interested in Roman history? There is no better way to orient yourself in Rome than with a personal driving tour, mapping out all of the major historical sights and hottest districts.

In this sight-filled night tour, we will begin from your hotel and set off to view Aventine Hill where you’ll enjoy one of the breathtaking sunset views over the Eternal City. On top of the Aventine Hill, the Villa del Priorato di Malta, is arguably the best known for a keyhole of the arch-headed central portone, through which the dome of the Saint Peter’s can be viewed at the end of a garden allée framed in clipped cypresses.

Next, close to the Villa is the Giardino degli Aranci, also part of the Great Beauty movie, is where we’ll enjoy a beautiful view of the right bank of the Tiber river.

Then we are going to see the Square of the Coloseum (only outside), the ruins of the Temple of Divo Claudio, the Imperial Forums, the Circus Maximus, the Temples of Hercules and of Portunus, and the Tiberine Island by the Tiber River. We’ll pass by The Baths of Caracalla, the second largest public roman baths built between AD212 and 216 by the Emperor Caracalla. Since then the Baths have remained as an architectural feature of Rome and a favoured tourist attraction.

Next we are going to drive to the modern EUR area, designed during Mussolini’s time, and from there we are going to reach Old Appian Road, where outstanding mausoleums were built, such as the one of Cecilia Metella, the Villa dei Quintili, The Park of the Aqueducts, and a public park in Rome part of the Appian Way Regional Park.

On the way back we’ll drive through the Borghese Gardens and by Via Veneto, one of the most expensive streets in Rome. A mix of residential and high end shopping, Via Veneto is a central location in La Grande Bellezza.

From via Veneto we’ll drive by the Villa Medici and piazza del Popolo. We are also going to drive by the Vatican (St. Peter), where we’ll make a stop for pictures as well as a stop by the Fountain of the Acqua Paola, as the Romans call “il Fontanone.” Here we’ll enjoy another spectacular view of Rome by night.

Now it will be time to drive you back to your Hotel or, should you prefer to enjoy some more “Dolce Vita”, you can be dropped off by the Campo dei Fiori which now is the trendiest place in Rome to have a drink in a nice café where, most probably, you’ll seat close to some italian or international movie stars.
