Enjoy a walking tour of the most famous sights in Rome, from the Colosseum and the Forum, to the Vatican and the Spanish Steps. Discover the incredible elegant interiors, art and history of this beautiful city. There’s also great food to be found in local restaurants, markets, and small delicatessens.
Day 1: Benvenuti a Roma
Welcome to Rome! After landing we will transfer by private hire coach to our centrally located hotel. If your flight arrives early enought there might be time for a brief stroll for anyone who might like.
Day 2: Roman Wanderings
Today we concentrate on the historic centre on foot. From the hotel we walk through the Borghese gardens via the water clock to the Pincio view point and look across central Rome dominated by the Victor Emmanuel building.
Then down to Piazza Popolo, Spanish Steps, the Trevi Fountain, and a quick look underground. After a café lunch we continue to Hadrian’s Temple, the Pantheon and Piazza Navona. There are many other things to enjoy on the way. At the end of the day we will jump on a local bus back to the Hotel.
Day 3: Following the Gladiators Footprints
The focus today is Ancient Rome. We have the morning with a professional local guide to explain the Colosseum to us and take us through the Forum.
There may be time to visit the Palatine Hill after the guide has left. This afternoon we take in some of the more famous Roman churches.
Day 4: The Ancient Appian Way
Today we walk in the Caffarella Park and on to the ancient Appian Way. We can pick up a picnic on the way. Heading back towards the City, in the steps of St Peter, we pass a number of interesting places amongst them former Christian Catacombs, the Quo Vadis church, and not least the massive Baths of Caracalla – as impressive as any of Rome’s ancient monuments. We will cover about 6 miles over mostly level ground.
Day 5: The Port of Anicent Rome
We head west out of the city by train to Ostia Antica, the former port of Ancient Rome, abandoned in the 4th century. It covers a vast area. One of its highlights is the square of the Merchants with its extensive mosaics showing many facets of life in the port.
We will have a picnic during our explorations and take the train back to the city when we have finished.
Day 6: The Vatican City
We take a tram from near the Hotel to the Vatican city for a timed entry to the extensive museums including the Raphael rooms and the Sistine Chapel. Early afternoon we go into St Peter’s. Afterwards we can explore a little more of this area walking past Castel Sant’Angelo.
Day 7: The Garden of Fountains
We travel east out of the city by private coach to Tivoli. We walk in the grounds of Villa d’Este- more fountains than you could imagine. Then through the town of Tivolli and its mediaeval houses to the Villa Gregoriana set in a gorge with its waterfall and ideal for a picnic. After a short coach ride we reach Hadrian’s Villa – the ruins still reveal the vast complex built for his retirement.
Day 8: Addio Roma
It’s time to say goodbye to Rome, hopefully your return flight is late enough for us to finish our explorations in the Borghese Villa before transferring back to the airport.
