Enjoy the best of both worlds with a guided exploration and free time to discover the Eternal City.

With the help of a local expert, learn the secrets of a trio of astounding Roman monuments. Photograph the imposing ruins of the Forum and the crumbling Colosseum, where you’ll hear gruesome tales of Gladiator battles. Marvel at the ornate architecture of St Peter's Basilica while your guide reveals its most fascinating stories, then lose yourself in the lavish interior as you explore on your own.

What to do with free time in a cosmopolitan capital? Maybe hit the shops, enjoy lunch in a cosy trattoria, or take in more of the city’s captivating landmarks. The decision is yours.
