This four-day history-filled trip to Rome is a great way to discover this ancient city and its stunning landmarks. Head out on a walk with a local guide where you’ll be able to walk the hidden alleyways of a more intimate Rome and soak up the soul of the city. Visit some of its most ancient sites, including the Roman Forum, Palatine Hill and Imperial Palace, and the Colosseum. Enjoy an afternoon discovering the Trevi Fountain, Piazza di Spagna, the Pantheon and Piazza Navona or perhaps you'd prefer to discuss Roman life over a cappuccino or a stop off at a traditional gelateria. Whatever takes your fancy! A visit to Vatican City is next on the agenda, where priority passes to the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel with an audio guide will help you dive into history.
Explore Michelangelo's masterpieces and take in the history of the Roman Catholic church. Don't forget you'll be able to contact our local Concierge for any last-minute requests while you’re away.


Everything is 100% tailored to you


Hop aboard your international flight and kick off your long weekend in Rome today. Transfer to the hotel in the city’s historic centre, check-in and then head back out to explore the city for an afternoon. Our local Concierge will help you find a restaurant serving the most tastebud tingling dishes, or a bar with postcard-esque views out over Rome.



Today you will take a deep dive into Rome’s history. Along with your private guide, who knows the ins and outs of Rome as well as its hidden historical treasures, meander through the city’s age-old streets. With around 1,200 history-packed years, it would take a couple of years to truly discover the city’s ancient past, but on today’s walking tour you can make a pretty good start. Follow in the footsteps of emperors through the cobbled streets to the Roman Forum, up Palatine Hill (the sacred hill of Rome) and Imperial Palace, and finally find yourself at the Colosseum. Your guide will take you through gladiator history and tell stories of the mass entertainment that filled the Colosseum from brutal gladiatorial contests to dramatic public spectacles. Spend the rest of the day taking in the ancient city, visiting Trevi Fountain, Piazza di Spagna, the Pantheon and Piazza Navona, or settle down in one of our Concierge-recommended restaurants for a languid afternoon of delicious Italian food and wine.



Discovering of one of the richest collections of artworks in the world with an expert guide is on today’s agenda. The Vatican Museums, once the residence of the Popes, are now home to some of the greatest masterpieces of the history of art since antiquity. Follow your guide through history, from ancient Roman statues to the works of the Renaissance masters. Your journey culminates with the Sistine Chapel. Here, before Michelangelo’s Last Judgement, you will experience the same awe felt by Pope Paul III in 1541, when the fresco was unveiled for the first time. Spend another afternoon at leisure, taking in the caramel-coloured architecture and history-splashed streets. Our Concierge can help you find a wonderfully authentic restaurant or cafe for some seriously special traditional food or a delicious cappuccino, before seeking out the trendiest rooftop bar to send off your final night in Rome, as you look out over the ancient city below.



Transfer to the airport and hop aboard your international flight home.

Villa d 'Este and the Renaissance Garden

This property was built in the 16th century on the site of a former Benedictine convent by Cardinal Ippolito d 'Este. An architectural masterpiece, this Renaissance palace, with its magnificent frescoes, is well-known for the originality and splendour of its Italian-style gardens, adorned with more than 100 fountains. Villa d'Este, which has been a UNESCO World Heritage site since 2001, is one of the first 'giardini delle meraviglie' (garden of wonders) and was used very early on as a model for the development of gardens across Europe.

Option - Half day with a private guide.
