Rome

One of the most ancient cities in Europe, Rome was founded over 2,700 years ago and really has become the biggest open-air museum in Europe.

Rome is one of world's most photogenic cities, just think about the famous Colosseo, the Fontana di Trevi and the work of the renaissance master Michelangelo in the Church of San Pietro. Through the narrow streets of the historical centre of Rome drive from one tourist attraction to the other and marvel at the rich cultural heritage and history of Italy. See one of the largest art collections of the world, spanning from Roman, Etruscan and Egyptian antiquities to contemporary art in the Vatican Museum and St. Peters Church. Learn about the famous Popes and their glamorous lives during the Renaissance period. Admire the works of important renaissance masters at the St. Peter's Basilica and Square and see the magnificent frescoed ceiling of the Sistine chapel.

Visit some of the underground churches and catacombs which were built to honour the dead. Also visit the crypt of the Capuccini, containing gruesome and bizarre art created out of the bones of dead monks.
