The best sightseeing spots in Rome

There are many spots for sightseeing in Rome and your host will know exactly where to take you so you can have the best time ever! Here are some examples of places we love.

Piazza dei Cavalieri di Malta - The secrets of Malta

Ask your host to include this spot in your personalized Rome sightseeing tour! Join him at sunset or during the night on the Aventine Hill. Pay attention to the wooden door of the Priory of the Knights of Malta: it hides a secret. The door's keyhole offers a breathtaking view of the dome of St. Peter, framed by the lush garden in the foreground; This is a truly one hidden attraction! Just make sure you add it on your things to do in Rome list.

Basilica of San Clemente al Laterano - three layers of great history

Quite unknown and one of the most extraordinary and well conserved monuments in Rome, the Basilica of San Clemente al Laterano was built on three historical layers, from the 1st century Mithraic temple at its lowest level, to the 4th century and 12th century basilicas. Experience this enchanting journey into the history of Rome. Your private guide will accompany you throughout the centuries and tell you lots about it! Sightseeing in Rome couldn’t get better than this!

The alchemical door and the receipt to turn lead into gold

Ask your friendly Roman host to bring you to this awesome place on your Rome sightseeing experience! Walk through the garden of Piazza Vittorio and you’ll arrive in front of the magic door, defended by two ancient standing statues representing Bes, an Egyptian divinity.

The magic portal conceals the secret formula to turn lead into gold, written by the Marquise Palombara, between 1678 and 1680. Would you like to try and solve the enigma? Let your host tell you lots about the history and the signs written on the Alchemical Door!

Visit the Spada Gallery

Sightseeing in Rome inside? Join your host to this unique masterpiece of Francesco Borromini! It’s an amazing visual illusion of a gallery 37 meters long, but in the reality it is 8 meters. You’ll also see a life-size sculpture of Mars at the end of the vista! The ceiling runs down and the floor rises, creating an image that can be deceptive or misleading to your brain!

After this psychedelic experience, you may ask to your private guide to visit the Museum in the same Palazzo, with its four rooms displaying masterpieces of Tiziano, Caravaggio, Rubens and Gentileschi, among others.

City panorama - great sightseeing in Rome

Accompany your host to to the Gianicolo’s belvedere, enjoying the splendid panorama of central Rome with its bell towers and domes: this is one of the best Rome sightseeing spots. But do it at noon on the hour…and you will hear the loud cannon shot, in the direction of the river Tiber as a time signal wanted since 1848, when the Pope wanted to chime all the bells of the Churches of Rome at the same time.

Wine Tasting with an Italian Winemaker

Raffaele was a very engaging host and obviously extremely knowledgable about all wines. He really helped to simplify how to assess and appreciate different wines and we left our evening feeling like semi sommeliers!
A fantastic venue in the heart of local Rome, with beautiful wine, thank you Raf for an amazing evening!

Wine Tasting with an Italian Winemaker

We met Raffaele at a great local wine bar. Not only were the choice of wines the best tasting we had while in Italy, but Raffaele was incredibly knowledgeable of Italian wine. We learned how to pick out some distinguishing traits that would allow us to better understand things like varietal, geography and age. He also called in a favor and got us into a restaurant where we agreed we had the best pasta of our lives (which was not part of the booking but we're so grateful he would do that for us). We highly recommend Raffaele no matter what your level of wine knowledge is.

Best of Rome Tour: Highlights & Hidden Gems

Valeria has a passion for her home city which shines through in her guiding. As we toured around she supplied us with an on going commentary of historical and cultural information which really added colour and depth to our experience. As a qualified architect she especially made the visit to the Pantheon special and had some fascinating cross sectional drawings. To top it all she is a lovely person!
