Tours to Rome

Italy’s revered capital displays timeless ruins and iconic monuments, and hugely influential art and culture, which represents the city’s 3,000 year-old history, particularly the priceless heritage of the Roman Empire. Few cities hold such historic riches as Rome does, with the Trevi Fountain and Colosseum belonging to its collection, plus the magnificent Vatican City. Another of Rome’s pleasures is the cuisine, with fine restaurants filling the enchanting streets and serving traditional Italian dishes with wines from nearby vineyards, and numerous Gelateria offering countless varieties of home-made ice creams and sorbets.

About Rome

Rome boasts many ancient Roman structures representing the Empire’s immense power, lifestyle and cultural practices, including the Colosseum, the largest amphitheatre to ever be built. This oval arena was created from limestone and concrete on the order of Emperor Vespasian around 70-80 AD, with 80 entrances and seating for more than 50,000 spectators to observe the gladiatorial combats, deadly hunts and wild animal fights, which included lions, bears, tigers, wolves, bulls and buffalo. Vicious contests were staged continuously during tournaments, with games only pausing for a fresh layer of sand to cover the blood soaked ground.

The neighbouring Roman Forum was the centre of political and social activity, home to some of the oldest and most important Roman ruins including temples, shrines, basilicas and public buildings. Among them is the Temple of Saturn, the first temple of the Forum constructed around 497 BC. Rebuilt following several fires, the structure became the home of the state treasury during Roman Republic rule. The site also boasts the House of the Vestals, the former sacred home of Vestal Virgins; the Arch of Septimius Severus, built in honour of Septimius Severus and his son’s victories; and the Curia, The Roman Senate’s meeting base.

Things to do / see

In the centre of the city, marvel the treasured Trevi Fountain, one of the oldest water sources in Rome, spurting around 2,824,800 cubic feet of water every day. In the centre of the Baroque fountains stands a statue of the sea god Oceanus whose chariot is being pulled by two sea horses, one which is wild and the other obedient - together they symbolise the varied moods of the sea. Tradition states that if you throw a coin with your right hand over your left shoulder into the fountain, you will return to Rome. A second coin will ensure romance and third will ensure marriage. The coins are collected daily to support Rome’s poor.
