 Itinerary description

Your driver will pick you up at the hotel. You will meet your personal licensed guide at the Vatican Museums entrance. Then you will follow visiting, at an easy pace, the Vatican Museums, seeing the Gallery of Candelabra, the Gallery of Tapestries, the Gallery of Geographical Maps, and the spellbinding Sistine Chapel.

You will leave the Museums to visit the St. Peter's Basilica, where are artistic masterpieces like La Pietà sculptured by Michelangelo and the gilded bronze baldachin by Bernini. Leaving the church you will cross the monumental baroque-styled St. Peter's Square, surrounded by the two colonnades, another masterpiece by Bernini.

You will then drive across the Tiber River seeing the St. Angel Castle and reaching the river left bank, where 90% of ancient Rome was settled, and you will explore the monumental and historical beating heart of the 'Eternal City': on-foot you will visit the Pantheon, a 2nd century AD temple, best preserved architectural work of ancient times. Here are the tombs of the great painter Raphael and the first two Italian Kings. Then you will walk to the astounding Navona Square to appreciate one of the most beautiful baroque fountains of Rome: the Four Rivers Fountain designed again by Bernini.

Your promenade will proceed to the renowned Spanish Square and to the enchanting Trevi Fountain to toss a coin to assure the return to Rome.

You will then drive to the Circus Maximus, the largest racing track ever built, seeing the ruins of Palatine hill and to the Colosseum. Here a stop will be given to astound at the vast building where Romans were entertained by gladiator's bloody fights and hunts of wild animals.

Crossing Piazza Venezia (Rome center) you will see the exaggeratedly enormous white monument called Altar to the Fatherland, but commonly nicknamed the 'Wedding Cake' for its form. You will see the conspicuous ruins of the Roman Forum, main commercial, religious and political center of ancient Rome.

You will then visit the Church of St. Peter's in chains to marvel at the marble statue of Michelangelo's Moses.

At the end of your wonderful experience in the Eternal City, your guide will leave you, and your driver will drive you back to your hotel.

 

Please ask for our reasonable rates by e-mail or contact us by fax mentioning date, number of persons, tour code and name.
