Our Roman exploration will start from The Vatican City, the smallest country in the world! We begin with our first Vatican stop at St Peter’s Basilica, home to Pope Francis and one of most significant sites in Christianity. This divinely beautiful Basilica has been standing for almost 1,700 years and features a bewildering collection of paintings, frescoes and designs crafted by some of the most famous artists!
Alternatively we can choose to add an optional Sistine Chapel tour to see Michelangelo’s famous painted ceiling. Next we will see the Trevi Fountain, the extravagant Baroque showpiece where we can throw a coin in the water! It is said this action will ensure that you will return to the city again!
Take a step back in time by visiting Italy’s unparalleled Roman relics. We highly recommend the guided tour of the Coliseum, built in AD 72. Watch history coming to life before our very eyes, when you witness the gladiator combat inside the mighty Amphitheatre.
Next, we will explore the Arch of Constantine, which dates back to the fourth century AD, after which we will have time to explore the city on foot and munch on some local delights like “gelato”, Italian ice cream! Yum! We then depart for Florence.
Hotel: 3* in or outside Florence
