Eternal Rome

Colosseum

The magnificent Colosseum by night

 

Stroll the ruins of the Roman Forum in what was once the heart of ancient Rome, relive the gladiator battles in the Colosseum, then wander across St Peter’s Square into the St Peter’s Basilica to marvel at Michelangelo’s frescoes in the Sistine Chapel. Climb the Spanish Steps in the Piazza di Spagna, stop for lunch at an authentic trattoria, then try a zabaione (custard dish), laced with Marsala wine at the famous Il Gelato di San Crispino. View Rome from on high at Piazzale Napoleone, browse for high fashion along the elegant Via dei Condotti and remember to ensure your return to Rome by tossing a coin into the Trevi Fountain.
