As the sun sets and the city gets quieter, let your private guide take you to Rome's most beatiful illuminated sites
A romantic exploration of spectacularly-lit Rome.
There is no better way to experience Italy’s capital than with a private driver collecting guests from their accommodation or other central location to enjoy a 2-hour journey throughout the Eternal City. With traditional dinner times in local restaurants commencing at 7.00 pm, a pick-up at 9.00 pm is perfect for this private drive around the most interesting and romantic locations of Rome. Backdropped by the stars and the moon, guests have the opportunity to see Rome at its most splendid.
Some of the sites that can be selected on this splendid Rome-by-night tour include the Colosseum, Pantheon, St. Peter’s, Imperial Forum, Vittorio Emanuele II monument, Via Veneto, Teatro di Pompeo (where Julius Caesar was assassinated), Piazza Navona, Sant’Angelo Castle and Ponte degli Angeli.
Upon request, this tour can also stop at the Trevi Fountain where guests may toss a coin into the waters for good luck. Legend has it that tossing a coin with your back to the waters guarantees you’ll return to Rome. This is extended by another legend saying that throwing two coins in thus means a new romance and a third means marriage. Guests are also free to stop for photographs or other special moments together.
Rome spans just under 500 square miles and boasts a history of more than 2.5 thousand years. It was the seat of the Roman Empire, is home to the Vatican and is today capital of Italy.Architectural forms of the arch, vault and dome were invented here, leading to some of the most iconic constructions in the world. It’s Colosseum is the largest amphitheater ever built. The Roman Forum, Arch of Constantine and Circus Maximus hark back to a time of greatness, the calls of the city’s most powerful historical figures echoing through the ages, whilst the Pantheon stands as testament to man’s genius.
Rome is peppered with pretty piazzas and imposing open-spaces, including Piazza Navona, Campo de’ Fiori, Piazza Farnese, Piazza Venezia and many more. Rome’s many fountains are also world-famous, each hailing from different eras and styles. To this day, most also provide drinking water to locals. None is more iconic than the Trevi Fountain however.
Scattered amongst Rome’s architectural delights, open spaces and fountains are a great number of historic statues and frescoes by some of the world’s most eminent artists. As a tourist destination, between 7 and 10 million people befall Rome each year, rendering night-time visits to the must-see sights of Rome much more unique.
