Grasping the essence of Rome in a few days, your morning will begin with a visit to the heart of Christianity: the Vatican Museums including the spectacular Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica. You will have a special reservation to enter the museums. In the afternoon, you will continue to discover the city and its ancient, legendary origins, which gave birth to a history that belongs to the world, not only to our country, but that of the Roman Empire. You will visit the Colosseum and the archaeological area of the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill. After this big day, you can wind down to a romantic sunset over the ruins of ancient Rome. Overnight at hotel.

Rome is not just archeology; with a 3-hour tour, you will revel in all the beauty of Baroque Rome by encountering Caravaggio and Bernini and discovering the secrets of the Basilicas that hold works of inestimable historical and artistic value. In the afternoon, a walk through the tree-lined avenues of Villa Borghese will end the day. In the largest Villa in Europe transformed into a public park, you can blend with Romans and take a boat ride on one of the lakes and relax in the middle of the bustling city. Overnight at hotel.
