Realize your dreams of Italy on your 8-day luxury tour that is handcrafted for senior travelers. Enjoy contemporary comforts and the charms of renovated historical buildings that are set amongst the endless rows of charming streets. You will arrive at the Rome Fiumicino Airport to begin your marvelous adventure as your private transfer will meet you at the airport and escort you to your gorgeous hotel located in the heart of the city. Your guide will greet you in the lobby to lead you on an introductory tour of Rome where you will enjoy a mixture of walking and private transfers around the historical center of the Eternal City to view the Trevi Fountain, Piazza Navona, and the Pantheon around sunset.

The ancient wonders of Rome will come to life the next day as you tour the Colosseum, Roman Forum, and Capitoline Hill. Stop at the famous food market to enjoy the mix of spices that linger in the air and the remainder of the day will be at your leisure to discover the secrets of Rome.
