We will start from visiting the Colosseum ( skipping the lines ) and climbing it upper piers. We will than walk past the Arch of Constantine to the Palatine Hill, once the residence of the ancient rich and powerful.
The views are breathtaking; from the Bath of Caracalla to the Circus Maximus and the Aventine Hill and onto the Roman Forum under our feet. We will stop at the Arch of Titus than descent onto the Roman Forum with the ruins of its ancient temples, the Senate House and the Rostra, from where most important speeches were given.
Upon leaving the Forum we will call at the Mamertinum Prison where St Peter and St.Paul spent their last days.
The views as we walk down are unique. With the domes of hundreds of churches at your feet you will understand why Rome is called the city of thousand churches and one synagogue
We will stop for lunch in a tipical Roman trattoria and than continue to Piazza Argentina, the area where Giulis Cesar had been assassinated on the Ides of March 44 BC. After lunch we will walk to the Pantheon and Navona Square with Bernini's Fountain of Four Rivers. We will cross Tiber river by the Angel's Castle and walk to the entrance of the Vatican museums to start our Vatican walk. We will see the highlights of Vatican Collection among ancient statues, paintings, tapestries and visit Raphael Rooms. The Sistine Chapel will be the highlight of our visit. We will finally arrive at St Peter's Basilica to see Michelangelo's Pieta and to explore the Church and the crypt with the Papal tombs. Our day will end at St Peter's Square for the last of many Kodak moments before you return to your hotel for the well earned rest.
