Experience Rome – Top Ten Experience Holidays

Is this is your first trip to Rome and you are not too sure where to start? Then take a look at our fantastic top ten experience holidays on offer:

Walking Tour Adventure of Ancient Roman Sites

This is an amazing top ten experience in Rome. Take a 4-hour walking tour of ancient Roman, including sites that aren’t as well-known such as the underground Coliseum. You will learn all about Roman life and days of old. Then head into the tunnels where gladiators awaited for their battle to commence.

Roman Catacombs after Dark

One evening spend a couple of hours on a walking tour of the Museum, Crypt of Capuchins, Bone Chapel and the famous Catacombs of Santa Priscilla. After dark you will hear stories from the early Christian era while avoiding the crowds.

Hop-on Hop-off Cruise on the Tiber River

Here you experience the highlights of Rome from the water. You can hop-on and hop-off the cruise at a number of the major attractions in Rome, including the Coliseum and Vatican City. Enjoy glorious views of the city as you listen to the running commentary.

Vatican, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Tour

If you book in advance, reserve your spot on the tour and experience the marvels and history of the Vatican without queuing. Join a small group headed with your personal guide and admire the impressive St. Peter’s Basilica, the Sistine Chapel’s famous ceiling along with paintings on display in the Raphael Rooms.

Hop- Hop off Bus Tour

This is where you can plan your perfect sightseeing tour and again an amazing top ten experience in Rome. Like the river cruises you will travel at ease between all of Rome’s major attractions, including the Coliseum, St Peter’s Basilica and the Spanish Steps. Take in the views as you learn about the city’s history, unless you’re just getting from A to B try and sit on the top deck.

Pyramid in Rome

Bringing a piece of Ancient Egypt to Rome is this 2000 year old pyramid in the city centre. The pyramid makes up part of the former boundary wall, originally built by Emperor Aurelian. It may be a grand gesture, but in effect is no different to introducing foreign artefacts into our homes today.

Half-Day Coliseum, Forum & Palatine Hill Tour

Tour the ruins of the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill, as you hire your own guide for a few hours to help bring ancient Rome back to life. If you book ahead of time you can bypass the crowds to enter the fabulous regal Coliseum. This massive amphitheatre held crowds of up to 50,000 people. While it may be famous for gladiator battles, you will also learn about other events that took place within the grounds.

Crypts and Catacombs Tour

This tour will take you underground, as you discover Rome’s hidden burial chambers. These unique catacombs and hidden crypts uncover secrets that you would easily miss above ground.

Gladiator School of Rome

Grab your weapons and prepare to do battle as you learn to become a real life gladiator. It isn’t really as dangerous as it sounds, but this amazing class is a unique and different way to learn about ancient Roman history. It’s only a stones throw away from the Coliseum.

The Trevi Fountain

This fabulous work of art is much more than just a sculpture. The Trevi Fountain set the benchmark for many other fountains around the world. It is an amazing example of Baroque art, with fantasy creatures within the impressive sculpture.
