Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Experience the elegance of Rome on this exceptional guided walking tour of its most exquisite sights. A scenic 90-minute motorcoach ride to the Eternal City begins the day. Visit the mysterious Roman Catacombs, a vast system of galleries and passages on top of each other which lie 23 to 62 feet below the surface in area of more than 590 acres. Stroll through St. Peter's Square, the striking piazza that frames the entrance to the Basilica and step inside this sacred Renaissance church. Savor a mid-day lunch in an elegant 5-star restaurant/hotel. Enjoy a photo stop at the Spanish Steps and the Colosseum (full outside explanation), one of the grandest of all city monuments, and end your day with the wish that you'll return once more. Legend has it that if you turn your back and toss a coin into the exquisite Trevi Fountain you are guaranteed to someday revisit Rome.
