Escape to Italy’s capital city for a week-long deep-dive into art, history, and culture. During your time in Rome, you’ll explore historical monuments like the Colosseum, visit the Vatican to gaze upon master artworks like the Sistine Chapel and the paintings of Raphael, and enjoy some of the world’s best food and drink in the numerous restaurants and bars.


This 8-day Italy vacation takes you to the Eternal City, Rome.

Your Italy vacation is at leisure in Rome, the country’s capital and the heart of the ancient Roman Empire. Even if you’ve been here before, Rome will still dazzle you upon arrival. It’s a city of indescribable riches, with some of the best food, architecture, and art to be found in the world. Take advantage of your open itinerary to plan days that cater to your tastes. You can use the convenient Hop-on Hop-off bus tour to easily jaunt about town to reach the landmarks. If you have a passion for history, head to the Colosseum and the Roman Forum to explore the world of ancient Rome and marvel at the 2000-year-old monuments that continue to fascinate people today. Continue along to the Pantheon to see where the ancient Romans used to pay tribute to the gods and admire the imposing architecture.

If you’re more the romantic type, head to the Spanish Steps to gaze into the window where John Keats spent his final months. Then stroll down to the Trevi Fountain and toss a coin in to see if your dreams will come true. No matter your interests, you’ll surely want to indulge in Rome’s incredible food scene while you’re here. While you’ll find any food your heart desires in Rome, there are two standout dishes that are must-haves: carbonara and pizza. And don’t forget to wash down your pasta and pizza with a glass (or bottle) of Italian red wine, and follow it up with a dessert like gelato.

Your Italy vacation also includes a visit to the Vatican City, the self-governing state of the Roman Catholic Church. On your small group tour of the Vatican, you’ll visit the Vatican Museums, one of the world’s largest museums and home to masterworks by Raphael and Leonardo da Vinci. You’ll also tour St. Peter’s Basilica, the world’s largest church, and enter the sacred Sistine Chapel, home to Michelango’s famous ceiling frescoes and The Last Judgement.

Your Italy vacation showcases the historical and cultural riches of the Eternal City.

Vatican Tour and time at Leisure

Half day tour to the Vatican Museums one of the world's largest museum complexes, containing some 2,000 rooms that stretch for nearly 9 miles (15 km) inside Vatican City. Skip the line with your small group of no more than 12 people, stroll through the corridors to view the world's largest private art collection, once intended exclusively for the pope. As your expert guide entertains you with tales of Vatican power and intrigue, you'll feel the Renaissance works of art come to life. Amble through Raphael's Rooms, the four interconnecting chambers adorned with paintings by Raphael and his pupils, before visiting the breathtakingly beautiful Sistine Chapel, which is considered the pope's home chapel. Walk through this sacred Vatican site to see Michelangelo's astounding frescoes, The Creation of Adam and The Last Judgment. The tour continued with St Peter's Basilica, step inside to see why it's so much more than just a church, and gaze in wonder at its awe-inspiring architecture and mosaics, including another Michelangelo masterpiece, La Pietà. Steeped in history, St Peters Basilica is said to stand on the ground where St Peter the Apostle was crucified and buried. The guide will explain the highlights of the basilica and its significance as the holiest place in Christendom.
The remainder of the day is at leisure.
