An espresso shot at breakfast before treading the nearly 2000-year-old steps in the Colosseum, a slice of gourmet pizza served among jostling, exquisitely dressed Romans, a gelato in delectable Piazza Navona, ravioli for dinner near the Spanish Steps: the Romans love to eat and drink, so when in Rome…
There is so much history to discover in Rome, and in the world’s tiniest state that lies within it: the Vatican City. Follow in the ghostly sandalled footsteps of a Roman senator through the Forum or tread the marble floors in the wake of the Popes in St Peter’s Basilica. A few steps off the tourist trail and you’ll find another side of Rome: a black-clad Italian ‘mamma’ hanging out the washing, and children running home with the daily fresh bread.
A maze of alleyways, terracotta coloured buildings and restaurant-lined cafés. It is where the Romans go for an evening out and is great fun.
Often missed but a must-see between Piazza Navona and Trevi Fountain. Believed to be the oldest building in Rome dating back to 27BC, the only light into the church is from the opening in the ceiling dome.
Make the climb to the top as the views it offers of Rome and the Piazza San Pietro are breath-taking.
There are generally thousands of people keen to see the Pope and we therefore recommend booking the Papal Audience Tour. You will be sure to arrive at St Peter’s Square in plenty of time for the Pope’s blessing, avoid queues and get a good position.
Peel back the layers of history as you descend into the Eternal City’s underground burial chambers, catacombs and crypts. Hear the story behind the Cappuccini Crypt, chapels decorated entirely by human bones.
When you feel like taking a break from the monuments and museums, this vast park overlooking the city has relaxing walks around the lake. It's a great spot to take a picnic, lie on the grass and enjoy the sunset over Rome.
After a quick panoramic tour of Naples visit a cameo factory before lunching in Pompeii by the archaeological sight. It was a busy town before Mt Vesuvius blew her top in 79AD, burying it in soot and ash thereby preserving an example of a Roman city and its way of life.
Travel out through the olive groves and vineyards to one of the oldest and most beautiful vineyards in the Frascati region. Learn how the traditional winemaking techniques have evolved and step down inside ancient cellars where fine wines lie maturing in barrels, to enjoy a tasting session.
Live like a local and explore the "Eternal City" by new Vespa Primavera 125cc. Follow your tour leader to some of the city's ancient monuments, such as the Colosseum and Pantheon. See the wonderful Trevi Fountain, enter stunning Piazza Navona and much more.
