If you are looking to travel to somewhere with rich history, fantastic architecture, and beautiful people, you should visit Rome. During my Italy tours, Rome was one of my favorite places because of these aspects. There are so many great places of historical significance that made this city magical for me. Get a private Rome Italy tour and you'll have one of the best experiences of your life.

It is an amazing feeling to walk into a building that is over 2,000 years old. For example, when I entered the coliseum in Rome, I could only imagine the types of events that were held there: gladiator fights, massacres, and executions. In some way, it is an eerie feeling to stand in a place where terrible things had happened.

Another must see location is the Sistine Chapel in St. Peter's Basilica. The basilica itself is an amazing place to visit. (Tip: If you are female, make sure that you have either long pants or a skirt, or you will not be permitted to enter the site.)

I believe I had whiplash by the time I left the Sistine Chapel! I couldn't help but admire Michelangelo's work on the ceiling for over three hours. Not only are the paintings inspiring and beautiful, but the history behind Michelangelo's work is very interesting.

The Vatican Museum, in general, has great pieces of art. There are works by many famous artists: Caravaggio, da Vinci, Fra Angelico, Giotto, Raphael, Poussin, Titian, and others. You could spend hours of your Italy tours, roaming the museums of Vatican City.

Around the city, there are great plazas and fountains. On a hot summer day, it would be a great idea to buy a yummy gelato and soak your feet in one of Rome's famous fountains. You can bask in the sun while enjoying the beautiful statuesque fountains. One of my personal favorites is the Fontana di Nettuno.

Please enjoy your private Rome Italy tours! There are magnificent things to see and visit when you are in Italy, especially Rome.
