Welcome to Rome!
Holding sway over much of the ancient world for 500 years, Rome was the greatest empire of its time. Legend has it that the city was founded by Romulus and Remus on seven hills. After subduing the neighbouring tribes and the Carthaginians by the second century BC, it became the dominant power in the Mediterranean. Ruled firstly by a series of consuls, then subsequently probably the most famous Roman of all, Julius Caesar, followed by a series of Emperors, each wanted their place in history. Between them they created a unique legacy, the remains of which we see today: the Forum, the house of the Vestal Virgins, temples to all the Gods, Jupiter, Mars, Venus and even ‘foreign’ ones too like Isis and Diana. Then there are the law courts and the Podium where news of military conquests was announced to an eager public. Then on the nearby Palatine Hill are the remains of the opulent villas of the elite, including the Emperor. Next to this are the immense Caracalla Baths, a veritable Roman leisure centre, plus two of the most famous centres of ‘entertainment’ the world has ever known: the Circus Maximus and the Colosseum. Ancient Rome was a truly remarkable place! On this journey through time, where their past will become your present, you will see all of this and more

Welcome to the historical and bustling city of Rome!
As you surround yourself with legendary works of Michelangelo, Raphael and Bernini, you will find that Rome is a welcoming city to the first time visitor. You are now right into the heart of Rome – Caput Mundi – Capital of the World – this is where the action is! You can freshen up at your Hotel and head towards the city to see the Piazza Venezia with the Victor Emanuel II Monument and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Walk around this area to see where the Senate ruled the World from: the Roman Forum. Every corner has surprises as we go through this majestic city.
You will go past many sights and admire the Colosseum, the Arch of Constantine and the Circus Maximus, and while driving along the banks of the Tiber, you see the Jewish Quarter complete with synagogue and the imposing Castel Sant Angelo close by. Set in the ancient Aurelian Walls that frame part of the Villa Borghese park, you’ll see a couple of the most beautiful gateways in Rome: Porta Flaminia through which you can admire the Piazza del Popolo and Porta Pinciana, through which you reach the famous Via Veneto symbol of “La dolce vita” in Rome.
In the evening hours head towards Piazza Navona and the Grand Pantheon which was commissioned in 27 BC.
MyPeople, we surely have to join in the Roman tradition of throwing a coin in the Trevi Fountain and making a wish and then relax on the Spanish steps and mingle with the locals and tourists.
Rise and shine and echo the words of Julius Caesar, MyPeople! Veni Vidi Vici! Which literally translates to, “I came, I saw and I conquered”. We will join our local expert who will take us to Vatican’s grand museums which includes the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica and conquer the beautiful city of Rome. The Sistine Chapel is also known for its famous Sistine ceiling which was painted by the talented Michelangelo and it depicts the scenes from the Genesis and the Last Judgement on the other wall.
We will visit St. Peter’s Basilica, the world’s largest church, which was built over a span of hundreds of years. It is a place where St. Peter was crucified upside down and the Basilica is built over where he was buried and is today: St. Peter was ordained the first Pope by none other than Prophet Jesus Christ and so this is the highest order Basilica of Christianity a place of Holy pilgrimage.
We will certainly visit the iconic Colosseum originally called the Flavian Amphitheatre. The opening ceremony of which was commemorated with great fights and shows. It was a ceremony that lasted over 100 days! The arena space was also filled with water which reproduced the greatest sea battles which reproduced battles from the past.
If you would like to experience all this history in this era, you can join us on the Time Elevator, a 3D simulation ride, where you can experience life in Rome, just like a Time Portal!
Rome is perfect for all kinds of tourists. It always has a busy atmosphere and with its numerous pizzerias, ristorantes and lovely al fresco (outdoor) cafes and bars, what’s not to love? MyPeople, during your relaxed hours, visit the shops if you like: we know where you could get the best bargains.
MyPeople today morning we leave towards Naples, and head onwards to visit the ruins of Pompeii and the grand Mount Vesuvius.
Pompeii, MyPeople, has the significant evidence of a Roman civilization. It has risen again after it was hit by thick lava from the Mount Vesuvius that erupted in 79 AD. You will witness actual Roman peasant dwellings, walls of houses covered with Roman propaganda messages or even risqué jokes! The volcanic material in fact kept the remnants of the civilization intact. This will definitely be a treat for you to see.
We will also visit the live volcano, Mount Vesuvius, which last erupted in 1944. It is a treat to listen to the wind and see the smoking crater atop Vesuvius and take in astonishing vistas of Naples.
We then leave for Sorrento and stay the night in Sorrento. Sorrento, they say was named after “Siren’s land” that comes from Homer’s Odyssey, where a Siren was a half woman and half fish, a mermaid to be exact. So hope you try and catch a glimpse of the mythical creatures in the night sky!
MyPeople, we will visit the stunning island of Capri, on the last day of our tour. Capri is located in Italy’s Gulf of Naples, and is famous for its landscapes, classy beach resorts and stores that sell beautiful handmade leather sandals and signature limoncello liqueur.
It is an island in the Tyrrhenian Sea, and we will travel to Capri by a boat from Sorrento. Thereafter we will visit Anacapri, a hilltop village with wonderful views, and enjoy a chair-lift ride up Monte Solaro – Monte Solaro is a mountain on the island of Capri. With an elevation of 589 m, its peak is the highest point of Capri. In your relaxed hours, we recommend you to explore the main town of Capri. You can also take a boat tour to Capri’s famous Blue Grotto, a dark cavern where the sea glows electric blue, a result of sunlight passing through an underwater cave. If time permits, we will visit the Faraglioni rocks, which were formed by erosion from the oceanic waves. They are an amazing sight to see and can be spotted from various coasts of Italy. Capri is well worth the trip from Rome!
Please Note: MyPeople, if you would like a shorter tour, we can exclude the tours to Pompeii Vesuvius and / or Capri and visit Rome in maximum 2 days to get the most out of your trip. Please inform us if you would like any of these options.
Today we will transfer you back to Rome airport, to take your return flight home. Arrivederci MyPeople!
