Rome is one of the most important historical and cultural centres in the world. The historic centre of Rome is part of world cultural heritage and the Vatican is the seat of the Roman Catholic Church and Pope. Rome wasn´t built in a day and it´s impossible to discover all its beauties in a day, but let´s try to see as much as possible.

Day 1 – Arrival
After your arrival, you will be driven by an English-speaking driver to your hotel, close to the city centre. You can spend the rest of the first day in Italy depending on you. Night in the hotel.

Day 2 – Hop on/off bus tour
Witness Michelangelo’s work at the Capitol Square. Visit the oldest part of the city, Forum Romanum and the Colosseum. Hasten to the Spanish Steps at Piazza di Spagna, throw a coin at the Trevi Fountain and admire the afternoon light at the Pantheon. You will take the Open Bus Hop-On Hop Off Tour in Rome, which is the best way to explore the city at your own leisure by hopping on and off as you please and see Rome in your own time. The buses make many stops in the most beautiful, cultural and evocative locations in the Eternal city and you get the best picture of the city and do not miss any famous sights. Finally, enjoy Rome by night on the deck of a cruise ship (optional tour). Night in the hotel.

Day 3 – Ancient Rome Tour
After breakfast, experience all of Ancient Rome, skipping the lines on this half-day tour which covers the Colosseum Roman Forum and Palatine Hill. Your tour will begin atop Colle Oppio (“Opium Hill”) with a panoramic view of the Colosseum. From there we will descend to the Colosseum. Once inside, an expert guide will talk you through the bloody past of the amphitheatre as you listen to tales of gladiators, mock sea-battles and executions. After a brief rest at the Arch of Constantine, you will arrive at the Palatine Hill- the most famous of the 7 hills of Rome. From here you will admire the views of the Roman Forum and Nero’s Circus Maximus where chariot races were once held. Romulus and Remus were said to have been found on the Palatine by the she-wolf who nursed and raised them. Legend holds that Romulus went on to found Rome. The last stop is a walk along the “Via Sacra” or “Sacred Way” which is the main path through the Roman Forum that once sparkled with festivals and triumphal processions. It ends at the Temple which houses the altar where Julius Caesar was cremated. Visitors from around the world still leave flowers and candles at this site today. Night in the hotel.

Day 4 – Vatican tour
Good idea is to spend the third day in the Vatican and to discover its wonders – museums, Sistine Chapel and St Peter’s Basilica. Vatican is a “city inside of a city”. If you get tired, enjoy a slice of pizza or a plate of spaghetti during a lunch break. Later in the day you can head on to the Jewish Ghetto (optional tour, see below) for more of history  or just relax with a cup of coffee in one of the caffés. Night in the hotel close to the city centre.

Day 5 – Departure, day off
You can head on the last day to Naples and Pompeii to discover the remains of an ancient city in the shadow of Mt. Vesuvius (optional tour). Or stroll around the streets and buy some souvenirs. If you do not wish to extend your stay in Rome, it´s time to say goodbye and leave Rome today. We will arrange transfer to the airport for you.
