Rome also celebrates a special relationship with the artist and inventor Leonardo da Vinci. Among the ancient sites that we visit is Italy’s most popular attraction - the mighty Colosseum. There’s free time for the Pantheon. And why not throw a coin into the Trevi fountain, immortalized in Frank Sinatra’s song and the Hollywood film “Three Coins in the Fountain”, at the Spanish Steps? But Rome is also a haven for foodies – indulge in the spectrum of colourful gelato flavours, or have a pasta or pizza with a tiramisu (Italian for “pick-me-up”!) in their native home. After hours, have a relaxing amble among the milling crowds in the floodlit Piazza Navona with its gigantic statues, fountains, eateries and leisure spots.

ROME The Vatican sits on one side of the River Tiber, facing Rome’s legendary seven hills. This great 3,000-year old city, formerly the heart of the Roman and where the Renaissance flourished, abounds with art and architecture. Inside the breathtaking St Peter’s Basilica is Michelangelo's statue, the Pietà. You will have the chance to immerse yourself in the famous Sistine Chapel and Raphael Rooms as well as the Vatican Museums.
