These golf cart tours are as comfortable as can be. By joining such a ride, you only need 3 to 7 hours to visit a wide array of the best things to see in Rome such as  Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, Pantheon, Piazza Navona combined with the “tour of the ruins” which covers Colosseum (outside), the Spanish Steps, Castel Sant Angelo, St Peters Square, the ”trendy” Trastevere, Tiber Island, Pyramid of Cestius, Baths of Caracalla, Circus Maximus, Theatre of Marcellus, Aventine hill and the famous “key-hole”, the famous Appian Way (where the 6000 Gladiators where crucified in 71 BC, you will all remember Spartacus!)

Rome is a huge city packed with iconic landmarks, ruins, museums and more to explore. Instead of walking endless miles, consider seeing the sights from the comfort of your own private golf cart tour.
