Three-Hour Private Driving Introduction to Ancient Rome


Three-Hour Private Driving Tour of Ancient Rome


This private driving tour offers the perfect introduction and overall view of ancient Rome. As you view the city from the comfort of your private chauffeur-driven vehicle, your guide will be either Michael or Dennis, Americans who have lived in Rome for over thirty years. Dennis, an artist who has exhibited his works throughout the world, is also the head of the high school art department at one of Rome's most prestigious schools. Michael is the co-author of National Geographic's Guide to Rome, and teaches history at another of Rome's exclusive international schools. Here's what they offer their guests:

"Seeing the city from our insider's point of view, sit back in our chauffeur-driven car and cruise along cobblestoned streets, through spacious piazzas and past world-famous monuments. We'll also introduce you to equally beautiful piazzas, streets, buildings and churches that are often visited only by Romans. As we travel back through the centuries, we'll tell you the area's history, its scandals, even the pernicious rumors it may have inspired over the ages (for Romans have always loved rumors!). And we'll tell you how each neighborhood fits into modern-day Rome. We'll also be happy to help you plan your own self-guided itineraries, shopping trips, museum visits and so forth. And we'll give you a complimentary copy of our own Rome restaurant guide.



What we offer is an entertaining, personalized way to feel as though you actually live in Rome. If you're traveling with your kids, this is a great way to introduce them to the fun of history and art. It's also an ideal way, especially if you aren't able to do a lot of walking, to get an overview of Rome from some lovely panoramas of the city. And this itinerary has been specially designed to complement, not overlap, the walking tours we also offer. Most of the areas visited are rarely seen by occasional tourists because they are hard to get to - for this reason they are peaceful (well, as peaceful as a major Italian city can get!), and still retain the aura of the epoch when they were built. Tours are for individuals and groups of no more than five people."
