Day 1

Rome – Collecting Iconic Rome

The city of Rome sprouted from mythology, founded by the brothers Romulus and Remus. A hint of mystique emanates from the boulevards and meandering narrow cobblestone alleys. The city has evolved over more than 3,000 years, connecting its past to the ruins of the Roman Empire, medieval castles, Renaissance artwork, baroque piazzas, and the daily bustle of locals sipping espresso en route to the office. Your flight lands at Fiumicino Airport where you meet your private transfer at baggage claim. The allure of Rome grips you from the moment you enter the lavish lobby of your hotel.

The former palace contains gilded window frames and antique furniture harkening back to the days of when ambassadors strolled along the polished marble floors and gazed at the colorful mosaics. Your guide meets you in the lobby after you have had time to settle into the comforts of your room. The sunlight glints off the golden brick buildings bordering the cobblestone lanes of the historic city center. You make your way through the iconic opulence of the Eternal City, beginning with the Trevi Fountain.

The water system has helped bring water to Rome since the Aqua Virgo Aqueduct was erected in the 1st century BC. The gorgeous edifice now framing the water source was erected in the 18th century under the patronage of Pope Clemens XII. The structure stands on the back of Palazzo Poli at a height of 86 feet. The imposing figure of Oceanus stands at the center of the fountain framed by a neoclassical arch. Horses pull the shell chariot and offer a sense of symmetry to the quintessential fountain of Rome.
