Reasons to Visit

Guided Sightseeing Tour

A sightseeing tour of Rome will offer your group the opportunity to see the city's main attractions. A professional, experienced, English-speaking guide will give an insight into the history and culture of the city and will be able to answer any questions you may have.

The Trevi Fountain

The Trevi Fountain stands 85 feet high and 65 feet wide, it is the largest Baroque fountain in Rome. A traditional legend holds that if visitors throw a coin into the fountain, they are ensured a return to Rome.


Rome’s great gladiatorial arena is the most thrilling of the city's ancient sights. A monument to raw, merciless power. It is not just the amazing completeness of the place, or its size, but the sense of violent history that resonates. Two thousand years on it is Italy's top tourist attraction.

Vatican City

The Vatican City is situated entirely within the city of Rome, sprawling over a hill west of the River Tiber, and separated from the rest of the city by a wall. Vatican City comprises St Peter’s Church, St Peter’s Square, the Vatican and the Vatican Gardens. The Vatican City is best known to tourists and students of architecture for the magnificent St Peter’s Basilica.

Imperial Forums

The Imperial Forums, built around 1AD, were the centre of Roman society and consisted of temples and public squares. Nowadays all that remains are ruins, although it is still a very impressive site


Piazza Navona

Enjoy the daily circus of street performers, artists and tourists acted out against a backdrop of baroque palazzi and ornate fountains.

Day Trip to Assisi

Approximately 90 miles north of Rome, in the rolling hills of Umbria, stands the exceptionally well preserved medieval town of Assisi. Known primarily as the birthplace of St. Francis (1182-1226 AD), the town has been a sacred place since long before the Fransiscan era. The Basilica of San Francesco, one of Italy's foremost monuments, was built between 1228 and 1253 AD.

National Roman Museum

The Roman National Museum, founded in 1889 is spread across 4 locations around the city. Its collections illustrate the history of the city and provides a magnificent showcase for some of the most beautiful paintings, mosaics and sculptures of the Roman age.

Day Trip to Tivoli

Tivoli is located not far from Rome, Italy. Known as Tibur in ancient times, Tivoli was a favourite resort for Roman travellers, and home to Villa Adriana (Hadrian's Villa). It took ten years to complete the largest and most sumptuous palace in the Roman Empire (135 AD.) Built on Roman ruins in 1550, the nearby Villa d'Este boasts one of the finest gardens in all of Italy. It's a magical place where five hundred fountains keep tons of water flowing.

The Great Synagogue

The attention-grabbing Art Deco design was a deliberate choice, the dome is the only squared dome in the city and makes the building easily identifiable even from a distance. In 1986, Pope John Paul II paid a visit to the Great Synagogue which is thought to be the first known visit by a pope to a synagogue since the early history of the Catholic Church.

Time Elevator

The Time Elevator in Rome is a fantastic evening activity for your group.  Using digital technology, you will go back in time to learn more about the history of the city to the time of Romulus and Remus when the city was founded, guiding you through the rise and decline of the Roman Empire through to Renaissance, the Fascist era to the present day.   Widescreens offer panoramic pictures to accompany multi-sensory effects including wind and rain.   Great fun and the history of the city in an accessible format.

The Spanish Steps

Designed by Italian Francesco De Sanctis, financed by a French diplomat and named after the nearby Spanish Embassy, the Spanish Steps are Rome's most famous stair case.

Borghese Gallery

The Borghese villa and its small palace were constructed at the beginning of the 17th century in an area then occupied by orchards and vineyards, evidence of which can still be seen today. It exemplifies the style of villa owned by a great Roman family at that period. The Gallery contains works by Raffaello, Canova, Bernini and Romano.

Baths of Caracalla

The Baths of Caracalla, the second largest baths complex in ancient Rome, were built between 212 and 219 A.D. by the emperor Marcus Aurelius Antoninus, better known by his nickname Caracalla. Inside the main building a complicated distribution system carried the water directly to the cold pools or to boilers over wood fires where it was heated for the warm and hot baths.

Roman Forums

Now a sprawl of ancient ruins, the Roman Forum used to be the centre of life in Rome during the Roman Empire with public squares, temples and law courts. The forum also served as a city square and central hub where the people of Rome gathered for justice and faith.

Vatican Museums & Sistine Chapel

The Vatican Museums house one of the finest art collections in the world. As the collections are so vast, it is better to confine yourselves to a few selected highlights such as the Chiaramonte Gallery, the Raphael Rooms, Raphael’s Loggia and the Chapel of Nicholas V, the Pinacoteca Gallery, not forgetting the Sistine Chapel with the awe-inspiring Last Judgement, which fills the altar wall.

Arco di Constantino

Standing alongside the Colosseum, Constantine's triumphal arch was one of the last great Roman monuments, erected in AD 315, shortly before he abandoned the city for Byzantium.
