About this holiday
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.
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
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
