About this holiday
The capital of Italy and with a history spanning over 2 thousand years, Rome, the ‘eternal city’, exerts an enduring fascination on
all who visit. With its multitude of ancient monuments, exciting legends and as a place of spiritual pilgrimage, the atmosphere is
alive with reminders of all the Roman Emperors. Soak up the ambience and admire architectural masterpieces in the capital city of Vespas,
designer clothes and long lunches.
Rome wasn’t built in a day, but our guided tour certainly reveals her treasures within just that. Crossing Piazza della Repubblica home
to the fountain of the Naiads, we stroll through the historic centre to admire the Trevi Fountain, La Colonna di Marco Aurelio, the Palazzo di
Montecitorio, Palazzo Madama and Piazza Navona. Step inside St. Peter’s Basilica to admire incredible works of art such as Michelangelo’s
‘La Pietà’ and Bernini’s bronze canopy. No visit to Rome is complete without perhaps a visit to the famous Sistine Chapel, a wander around the
Colosseum and a descent of the Spanish Steps. With a 72 hour Roma Card included, we have access to public transport throughout the city as well
as entrance to a host of museums and sites allowing us to explore at our leisure.
Food Glorious Food
The people and food of Rome encapsulate the spirit of the city. Pass a central café and the tables outside are animated with local Italian’s
downing fast shots of espresso. Sample fresh pasta, oven-baked pizzas, refreshing gelato and local wine; to eat is to experience! Aside from
the pleasure of eating, make time to stroll along the Via del Corso, which cuts through the length of the city and takes us to the elegant shopping
streets, including Via Condotti, the Bond Street of Rome.
