Once at the hotel, you will have the opportunity to settle into luxury and the comforts of the city before meeting your guide in the hotel lobby for a private, introductory tour of Rome.
Your guide will offer insight into the historical and cultural landmarks, taking you from the Trevi Fountain to the Pantheon and from the Spanish Steps to Piazza Navona.
