About this holiday

Ancient wonders

The capital of Italy and with a history spanning over 2000 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.

Culture vultures

Rome wasn’t built in a day, but our guided tour certainly reveals her treasures within just that.

Passing the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Piazza Venezia, we stroll through the historic centre to admire the Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, Pantheon and Piazza Navona.

You might like to 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 a visit to the famous Sistine Chapel, a wander around the Colosseum and a descent of the Spanish Steps. Don’t feel like going to a museum? Perhaps there’s no need when it’s all outside on the streets.

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 Italians 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.
