The glory of Rome emerges out of ancient roots and continues to spread across Western Civilization. Iconic ruins rise amidst the contemporary bustle of the streets and cafes. Baroque palaces and dramatic fountains add layers of luster to the captivating history inside the historic city center. Your private transfer meets you at Fiumicino Airport upon your arrival and escorts you to an opulently renovated palace in the heart of the city, filled with reminders of the hotel’s once decadent past. Antique furniture accentuates the gilded window frames and the polished marble floor. After settling into your hotel, you meet your private transfer in the lobby.
Rome’s prestigious past and vibrant present welcome you along the cobblestone streets and narrow alleyways bordered by antique homes. Your walking tour leads you to Piazza Navona, originally a 1st-century AD athletic stadium, used for chariot races in the 15th century. Gorgeous baroque palaces surround the oval shaped piazza. A breeze brushes over the cobblestones and carries a refreshing mist off the fountains. An Egyptian obelisk ascends from the center of the Fountain of the Four Rivers, a work of art crafted by Bernini featuring the major rivers of the world represented in allegorical figures. The scent of creamy carbonara pasta emanates from the cafes at the edge of the square.
