Some of the major highlights of the tour are:
Roman Forum: It is the central area around which ancient Rome developed. Filled with beautiful statues and buildings, it is a hub of stunning architecture and was a platform for public speeches in AD 203. One of the major highlights of this area is the Forum of Julius Caesar built in 46 BC by Julius Caesar.
The Colosseum: Inarguably the most majestic structure of the Roman Empire, the Colosseum (originally known as the Flavian Amphitheatre) is inhabited by myriad tales of bravery, public life and royalty in ancient Rome. Despite the pillage of natural disasters, fires, pollution and wars, it is a living proof of the stunning architecture and strong masonry of ancient world, and has served as a model for stadiums around the world.
The Jewish Ghetto: Known to be the inspiration behind William Shakespeare’s most noted work The Merchant of Venice, the Jewish Quarter of the Cannaregio district exists as early as the 16th century and is the best place to witness the life that the locals lead and how their days are filled with fun, food and merry making.
The Circus Maximus: Constructed in 6th century BC, it was a chariot race track and was also used for other public events like gladiator fights and Roman games. It was believed to have accommodated a quarter of Roman population and currently it is a large grassland while the original structure served as building material for medieval and Renaissance constructions.
Campo de’ Fiori square: Once a meadow, the square is known for its market and for centuries was a place for public executions. It was here that Italian philosopher Giordano Bruno was executed and a statue of his was placed in the piazza bythe sculptor Ettore Ferrari in 1887.
The Pantheon: Originally built as a temple to all the gods of Ancient Rome. The best preserved of all Roman buildings, it has been in continuous use throughout its history. Since the 7th century it has been a Catholic church.
Trevi Fountain: The largest and most ambitious of the Baroque fountains of Rome. Legend says that if visitors throw a coin into the fountain, they are ensured a return to Rome.
During the course of the tour, tickle your tastebuds with a real Italian breakfast menu comprised of an espresso coffee paired with typical roman croissant at a traditional artisan bakery shop. When the ride becomes too overwhelming, take a break for a crunchy Roman pizza prepared with an artisan ancient recipe in one of the renowned “forno” (bakeries). That’s not all. You will also get a chance to have a sneak peek into the kitchen and witness how the super thin and tasty pizza is prepared.
To bring this tour to its perfect ending, you cannot miss savouring a home-made Italian ice-cream while the guide tells you its importance in Italian culture and how it is prepared.
