After meeting your expert driver-guide in central Rome, you board an electric tuk tuk (golf cart) and set off on a whistle-stop tour of the city’s highlights.

Rome Sightseeing by Tuk Tuk

Hop aboard your electric golf cart—one of the most enjoyable ways to explore Rome! With your experienced driver-guide, you can zip around many of Rome’s most famous sites in just a few hours. You'll book an entire tuk tuk for you and your party of 1-4 people to enjoy a private tour of Rome. Have more than four people? Just reserve another private golf cart

The Mighty Colosseum

Gaze in awe at the mighty Colosseum—the famous amphitheater where gladiators and wild animals once spilled blood in front of 60,000 screaming spectators. This is truly the cherry on the cake of any Rome city tour, and your driver take you to some of the best viewpoints to see this world-famous arena from the outside.

Colosseum entry isn't included, but you'll get a great view of this architectural monument for those forever pictures.

Roman Forum

Your tour continues into the heart of ancient Rome. You'll see the Roman Forum where citizens would gather and politicians would shape history, and where historic temples, monuments, and administrative buildings from Roman times still stand today. Entry to the Roman Forum is not included in this tour, but your driver will make sure you see it from all the best perspectives.

Oppian Hill and San Martino ai Monti

One of Rome's famous seven hills, Colle Oppio's importance dates back to the founding of Rome and nowadays it is a prestigious residential neighborhood. Home to the beautiful Oppian Hill Park and historic sites such as Domus Aurea and Bath of Trajan, it's also a wonderful spot to enjoy views of central Rome.

Nearby you'll find the Basilica dei Santi Silvestro e Martino ai Monti (or San Martino ai Monti for short). Founded by Pope Sylvester I in the 4th century, the church is now served by the Carmelite friars.

Santa Maria Maggiore

You'll also stop by at Santa Maria Maggiore on your way through the city. This was the first church dedicated to the Virgin Mary when it was built in 432 A.D. and is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful churches in Rome. Some say that only St. Peter's itself provides a more impressive spectacle!

Trinità dei Monti and the Spanish Steps

Your next site on this Roman adventure is the stunning 16th-century church of the Santissima Trinità dei Monti, whose bell towers stand proudly at the top of the famous Spanish Steps. One of the most iconic scenes in movie history was filmed here, when Audrey Hepburn enjoys a gelato in the the film "Roman Holiday."

Piazza del Popolo and the Mausoleum of Augustus

Your sightseeing tuk tuk tour of Rome begins in the beautiful Piazza del Popolo, which marks the northern gates of the city and is also its the largest square. Find out what makes this impressive square so special as you gaze upon the massive obelisk, twin domed churches, and the original Roman gate here.

You'll also pay a visit to the nearby Mausoleum of Augustus. This circular raised tomb from 28 BC remains in remarkably good condition, but you can imagine it as it once was with a grand golden statue of Augustus himself looking out from the top.

Piazza Navona

One of the main squares in Rome, Piazza Navona, is a delightful hub of food, culture and charming architecture. One of the first things you’ll notice is the Egyptian obelisk towering over the surrounding buildings of the open square. You'll also see the beautiful Fountain of Four Rivers in the center of the piazza, known for its intricate sculptures completed by Bernini in 1651. Your driver-guide will explain the story behind the Stadium of Domitian, the ancient arena that lies beneath today’s piazza.

Campo de 'Fiori and Via Giulia Street

From Piazza Navona you'll travel to nearby Campo de 'Fiori. Meaning "field of flowers" in English, this charming and lively public square used to be a meadow in the Middle Ages, and since 1869 it has hosted a much loved local market which is famous for it flowers, fruit, and vegetables.

From here, you'll access the historic Via Giulia Street that runs beside the River Tiber. This beautiful cobbled street was once an ancient Roman road before becoming one of Rome's most prestigious addresses, and home to many important buildings.

Visit the Vatican and St. Peter's Basilica

Your tour continues into the world’s smallest independent state and home of the Pope. Admire St. Peter’s Square and Basilica as your driver-guide gives you an insight into the history of this unique country within a city, which also houses Michelangelo's iconic Sistine Chapel and one of world's finest art collections in the Vatican Museums.

To explore the art collection and step inside the famous buildings of the Vatican takes time (and tickets!) so you'll just be admiring from the outside on this tuk tuk tour.

Views from Janiculum Hill

For the best views of Rome, your driver-guide will take you to some epic lookouts on two of Rome’s famous hills. You first hilltop view will be from Janiculum Hill which stands to the west of the ancient center of the city and offers a unique perspective that most tourists miss.

Often referred to as the eighth hill of Rome, it's actually the second tallest in the city but isn't counted as one of the famous "Seven Hills of Rome" because it was outside of the ancient boundaries, to the west of the Tiber. You'll have a little time here to enjoy the views and the charming park that covers the hill.

Trastevere and Tiber Island

Perhaps Rome's trendiest local neighborhood, your tour then heads over to Trastevere. Once the working-class part of Rome, today it has become a bohemian hot spot with great food and nightlife. Watch local life pass by and take note of where you want to come back and eat later on!

After your drive through Trastevere, you'll cross the river again to Rome’s famous Tiber Island. Tiber Island is one of the oldest parts of Rome and is also home to the oldest bridge in the Eternal City.

Teatro di Marcello

The penultimate sightseeing attraction on the tour is Teatro di Marcello (the Theatre of Marcellus). This 2,000-year-old building may look like a mini-Colosseum, but it’s actually 100 years older!

Piazza Venezia

There's no mistaking the magnitude of the Altar of the Fatherland monument at Piazza Venezia. This gigantic monument to Victor Emanuel II is often referred to as the "wedding cake" or the Vittoriano Memorial, and you'll get to ride right next to it and take in its massive size. Be sure to come back in the late afternoon and purchase a ticket to the upper terrace for an unbelievable view of Rome!

Near this square you'll also get to see the steps that Michelangelo designed leading up to what is now the Capitoline Museum. The small square up there (called Piazza del Campidoglio) was originally designed by him as well, with a careful renovation completed in 1940.

Having seen the best of Rome in just a few hours, it's time to wave goodbye to your friendly driver, who will be happy to offer helpful advice on where to eat, drink, and fun things to do with the rest of your time in the city.
