What to expect

With the help of our greeter, board on your high speed train to reach Rome in 1.5 hours. Once arrived in Rome, you can see the highlights of Rome at your own pace as you move into the city to reach meeting point with a hop-on/hop-off all-day pass on a comfortable double-decker bus (Buses depart every 15 min approximately). At the Colosseum, your guide will give you a thorough history lesson about the site, including the gladiatorial clashes, wild-animal fights, and mock-naval battles that were once staged here. Once you’re inside, you’ll wander remnants of the seating arcades that once fit 50,000 spectators. Next, you’ll explore the onetime cultural, economic, and political center of ancient Rome, the Roman Forum. You’ll walk along the Via Sacra, tracing the paths of ancient military processions and political rallies. You’ll also see important sites like the Temple of Julius Caesar (where the emperor’s body was ceremonially burned), and the Curia Julia—the still-intact Senate House where Cicero and Mark Antony once orated. Palatine Hill: According to legend, the twins Romulus and Remus first decided to begin building the city of Rome atop this impressive hill. You’ll understand why as you walk here among its ruined emperors’ palaces and still-blooming botanical gardens. At the end, board again on your high speed train and relax while reaching Florence after your journey through the History of Rome.
