                                                   Tour Description

This full day private tour of Rome first begins by visiting the Coliseum and Roman Forum both inside and out learning about the emperors, gladiators, vestal virgins, and she wolves which make these sites so alluring. We discuss not only the fact but also the fiction and Hollywood behind the Ancient Roman World allowing you to have a full understanding of the area before heading off into the heart of present day Rome. ---We then make out way to Piazza Venezia and the Monument of Vittorio Emanuele II, better known to most as the 'Wedding Cake'. Standing at the base of this gigantic monument we will see Mussolini's headquarters, one of the old residences of Napoleon as well as the madness of Italian traffic before continuing on down small picturesque cobblestone streets, where the real treasures are.

Arriving at the Spanish Steps, surrounded by Gucci and Prada we see why this is the hottest area in town. Our English speaking private guide in Rome will bring you to the Trevi Fountain where you can cool off in the mist while throwing a coin over your shoulder ensuring a return visit. Following the small streets we then appear in front of the Pantheon. This monument never seizes to amaze and you will know why when looking up into the dome (which is a man made world wonder).

At this point in the day your stomach should be ready to indulge in the fine selection of Italian meats, pastas, gelato and perhaps an afternoon glass of red in the area of Piazza Navona. Our Rome guide will have many restaurant suggestions to fit any pallet whether it's seafood, spaghetti, pizza or some traditional Roman cuisine like tripe (stomach lining).

After an energizing lunch, we hop in a taxi and head over to the Vatican. We choose to cover this area last, not necessarily because we are saving the best for last but also because the morning crowds will have disappeared and the museums will be much more enjoyable. The Vatican has the largest collection in the world with many highlights to see, our private guide will make sure you see them! ---We visit the Greek and Roman Statuary Collection, the Gallery of the Maps, the rooms of the famous painter Raphael, Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel and the magnificent St. Peter's Basilica.
