Rome City Tour
The problem in Rome is not whether there is enough to see but rather that there is too much! However, within the centre of the Eternal City, there are a plethora of sights that can be enjoyed on a leisurely walking tour, from the Forum and Pantheon to the Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain, all of which stimulate the senses. We also organise tours with a different twist such as an Angels & Demons one based on Dan Brown’s bestselling novel.
Crossing the Tiber to the west of the city lies the Vatican and the heart of the Catholic faith. Here, your guests will experience the incredible museum, Raphael’s frescoes, St Peter’s Basilica and, of course, the stunning Sistine Chapel, Michaelangelo’s finest work. Everywhere one looks there are beautiful artworks, monumental architecture and an overriding sense of awe and history.
Properly called the Flavian Ampitheatre, the monumnetal Colosseum was a testament to Rome’s power in general and to the Emperor’s in particular. Begun by Vespasian and completed by his sons, it had a capacity of 60,000 specatators and staged some of the most spectacular events ever witnessed from Gladiators to mock Sea Battles, all designed to reassure the people of Rome that their Empire and, by extension the Emperor, was omnipotent.
