Suggested itineraries – Private guide service
Relais Rione Ponte proposes private tours with certified guides. A personalized service to explore the hidden treasures of the Eternal City.
Our philosophy is to give tourists the experience of seeing Rome as a local and not as a tourists.
Due to the hectic schedule that sometimes people have to follow, tourist end up in fast group tours, restaurants with pictures on the menu and busy streets where vendors try to sell any kind of souvenir. Rome may be much more than this and takes no so much time to get the real spell of this City but just the good mentor.
We offer standard tours such as: Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel, Ancient City, Baroque Rome, Underground Rome in 3 hours or 4 hours options and we offer also a selection of less traditional tours that may be agreed with you according to your needs and interests: Roman churches, Jewish Rome, Tours based on one particular artist etc.
Every week we offer an introduction to the City with our guide during our happy our and if you book two 3 hours tour or a 6 hours full day, we offer a 1 hour walk in the neighborhood of the Relais, the old Campomarzio, for free.
