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.

90 Minutes Kickstart Tour of Rome

Talk about an experience to remember. From the second we met Matteo we knew that we were in good hands. His enthusiasm for the culture and history was beyond anything we were expecting. Matteo was an absolute perfect fit for us and we are so glad we chose him.

Matteo was eager to answer any questions we had, guide us to places that are an absolute must for our stay here and had patience for all of it.

Thank you Matteo for giving us a wonderful tour!

Roman Food Tour: The 10 Tastings

We did the food tour with Roberta, my wife and I and our 8 year old daughter. Roberta was fantastic with Annie, allowing us to enjoy the fantastic food. We tried foods that neither of us would of thought of ordering and she took us to some fantastic places.
The place that we went for the Carbonnara (Da Simo Pane e Vino) was fantastic.
Would definitely recommend booking this tour with Roberta. The communication before was excellent, the meeting spot was easy to find and she was on time.

Thank you very much Roberta.
