The Most Exciting Things to Do in Rome

Are you a thrill-seeker looking to do the untold during your trip? Though the 'Eternal City' is not for bungee jumping and we wouldn't suggest a dip in the Tiber, there is plenty to do for the adventurous type. Here is a list of some of the most exciting things to do in Rome, and how you can be sure to indulge your senses!

Dark Heart

Castel Sant'Angelo at Twilight

Dark Heart of Rome

In the eerie darkness of the night, Rome shows its other side. At its most mysterious and thrilling, the city will definitely get your heart racing.

On our Rome Ghost Tour, we take you through areas that have been famous for being haunted and ridden with macabre mysteries for centuries. You will visit Campo de Fiori, Castel Sant’Angelo, Via del Governo Vecchio, Via Giulia and many more exciting locations in the sign of all that is unholy.

Pompeii

The Ancient Streets of Pompeii

Half Day Pompeii

Our Pompeii Day Trip from Rome is an experience that few can imagine. Not only will you be taken to Pompeii, but also up to the crater of the still active volcano, Mt. Vesuvius, for a short hike.

When you reach the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Pompeii, you’ll be mesmerized by the perfectly preserved ancient Roman lifestyle, down to the minutest details. Take a walk around Pompeii exploring the ruins, fossilized remains and beautiful mosaics to learn how these people lived, and how a massive volcanic eruption swept it all away.
