Rome’s Essentials in 1 day…

Morning – Baroque Walk of Rome:

From the majestic Spanish steps, we shall walk through the Baroque heart of Rome, visiting some of the city’s most iconic and famous squares and works of art, including Piazza Navona with Bernini’s dramatic Four Rivers Fountain and Borromini’s revolutionary church of Sant’Agnese, to the breathtaking engineering of the Pantheon and to the romantic and theatrical Trevi Fountain.

Lunch break – If preferred, lunch can be arranged at a local and traditional Roman restaurant. The lunch will be user-pay.

Afternoon – Exploring Ancient Rome:

This lecture will explore the history and greatness of the civilization that was Rome. From its monarchical foundations in the 8th century BC, to the collapse of the Empire in the 5th century AD, Rome was the city and civilization that dominated the ancient world.

This lecture will begin at the Coliseum, where we will examine the largest amphitheatre of the ancient world and discuss the most popular of Roman social activities – gladiatorial games.

We shall then continue through the Roman Forum, stepping back in time to the days of Romulus, Julius Caesar, Titus and Constantine, weaving our way past the ruins of their great culture and through the tales, legends and events of their great history. We will climb up to the Capitoline Hill, connecting the ancient emperors to the Renaissance popes.
