Lazio, South of Italy
Attempting to explain the enormity of ‘Lazio’ in just a few lines is an impossible task. Therefore, we choose to focus on Rome…
Multi-faceted Rome offers its travelers many tucked-away corners to discover: from the world-famous Piazza di Spagna (with the Spanish Steps) to the heralded Trevi Fountain (which for many represents the true essence of ‘La Dolce Vita). Let us not forget to mention Campo de’Fiori, Piazza Navona, the Colosseum and of course, the Roman Forum, one of the largest open air museums in the world. Rounding a corner, you may meander into St. Peter’s Basilica and the Vatican Museums, housing the spectacular Sistine Chapel, whose ceiling is mesmerizingly covered with paintings by Michelangelo. An eclectic and varied menu of activities, tours and quite possibly ‘once in a lifetime’ experiences is available throughout this fabled city centered in the region of Lazio.
First time visitors are highly recommended to book our ‘Imperial Rome Tour’ which includes the iconic Colosseum and Roman Forum, and/or the ‘Baroque Rome Experience’ which showcases many of the treasured works of Bernini and Borromini. Seeing the Vatican Museums – featuring the exquisitely infamous and amazing Sistine Chapel – is an absolute must on any first time visitor’s bucket list. Echos from some of Rome’s most authentic atmospheres of the past will be vibrantly evident through visits to the Campo de’ Fiori, Trastevere and Testaccio districts. Those returning to Rome for a second (or third, or fourth…) time should most definitely experience the famous Castelli Romani area, which includes beauties such as Castelgandolfo (the ‘Holy See’s’ summer residence), Ariccia, Genzano, Rocca di Papa and Frascati and even the beautiful Tivoli with its famous Roman Villas Adriana and d’Este.
