From the toga-wearing days of Julius Caesar to the artistic boom of the Baroque, Rome is a city that catapults you through time. It’s as if history seeps from every cobblestone, and traversing it all is no mean feat. And that’s where this tour comes in. It showcases the very best the Eternal City has to offer - plus it gives you an inside view of two if its biggest attractions. The trip follows a classic itinerary through the heart of the Italian capital. You’ll get to see global landmarks that need no introduction - places like the Trevi Fountain and the Spanish Steps. But one of the biggest highlights has to be the Colosseum. Head inside and relive the days of the gladiators as you wander round this ancient landmark. The Colosseum aside, you’ll see a host of other star sights. At the Caracalla Baths you can almost picture slave girls massaging weary senators and centurions. At the Circus Maximus, meanwhile, the thunder of horses’ hooves seems to resonate around this ancient racing ground. And last but not least, there’s the Roman Forum. Head inside and you’ll be tripping over temples and triumphal arches. This is one whirlwind tour and a half.
