Did you know:

  • Piazza Navona was built on the ancient Stadium of Domitian – also known as Circus Agonalis, “the competition arena”. It’s believed the name Agonalis morphed into Navona over time - which also explains its oval, stadium shape
  • Circus Maximus was so big it could seat nearly a quarter of a million people – that’s 200,000 more people than the Coliseum
  • Although the Coliseum is renowned for its gory gladiator fights – it was also a venue for festivals and miniature boat races!

Things to see:


One of Rome’s most ancient landmarks, the Coliseum is a highlight on this bus tour. Stopping right outside the famous amphitheatre of ancient Rome you can see the iconic façade that has stood the test of time. From 70AD the Coliseum is steeped in history and is one of Rome’s most visited attractions. Hop off for a closer look or stay on the bus and take photos from a far and learn about the tales through time on this interactive tour.

St Peter’s Basilica

Up to the Vatican City, you will pass St Peter’s Basilica – the centre of the Catholic Church and a holy destination for pilgrims far and wide. Observe the imposing dome, Rome’s most dominant feature along its skyline, and admire the work of Michelangelo, Bramante and Bernini in its architecture. Step inside and be amazing by the sheer scale of it and why not climb up to the top for sweeping views across the city.

Piazza Navona

Rome is famous for its baroque architecture and there’s nowhere better to admire the style than in the famous Piazza Navona. Adorned with three large fountains and marble statues, the piazza is framed by baroque buildings and restaurants pouring onto the cobbles. A favourite for locals and tourists alike, it’s a great place to stop for a coffee and watch the world go by, as well as to admire the classic architecture of the city.

Fantastic way to go sightseeing and to get around Rome. We purchased the Omnia Vatican & Rome card online, although we saved money the real benefits of the cards was how easy it was to get into the all the main attractions. We picked up our cards by the Vatican and the staff at the centre were professional and very helpful. The unlimited travel cards were a real bonus as well as the open topped bus. We saw so much more of Rome because of this. Anyone visiting Rome should purchase the Omnia cards it's a no brainer.
