Sip a coffee by the Colosseum, take a splash in the Trevi fountain, and gaze at the most well known ceiling in the world, Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel, all in one day. No matter how long your visit to Italy, make the most of your time with this tour.
From the site of ancient government and politics at the Roman Forum; to the Victor Emmanuel monument, also known as the Altare della Patria or Alter of the Nation, home to the tomb of the unknown soldier; to Capitoline Hill-once a citadel and now home to Renaissance Palaces, it’s easy to sense not only Rome’s rich history but also the immense pride that drove the Roman empire to greatness. History and faith walk hand in hand here; follow them to the Pantheon. Believed to have once been a private Roman temple, it is now in service as a Catholic church. Continue to St. Peter’s Basilica, burial place of St. Peter and the most renowned work of Renaissance architecture. From there, stroll through the papal collections housed in the Vatican Museum, culminating in the Sistine chapel-one of the most stunning works of art on earth.Book now
