Study Experiences can arrange a wide range of visits in Rome, such as:
The Vatican Museums & Sistine Chapel
A huge complex of galleries and museums, probably housing the world’s greatest collection of antiquities, showcasing painting, sculpture, frescoes, tapestries and classical antiquities including Roman, Greek and Egyptian. Combine this with the impressive Sistine chapel and Raphael's Rooms and one visit here is not likely to be enough.
St Peter’s Basilica
Located within the walls of the Vatican, in Saint Peter's square, the interior of this cathedral includes 45 altars and has been decorated by many famous artists. Some of the most important works in the church are the Pietà by Michelangelo, the papal altar and the Throne of St. Peter, both by Bernini. The dome or cupola was designed by Michelangelo when he became chief architect in 1546.
This amazing amphitheatre is considered an architectural and engineering wonder and remains as a standing proof of both the grandeur and the cruelty of the Roman world.
The Pantheon is Rome's only architecturally intact monument from the days of the Empire. Built in 27 BC by Marcus Vipsanius Agrippa, it was dedicated to the gods of the Julian family.
Villa Borghese (Gallery, Museum & Park)
Villa Borghese, located in the centre of the city, is the largest public park in Rome. Created in the 1600s, this elegant park has a lake, plus a number of temples, fountains, statues and several museums. The gallery displays such masterpieces as Bernini's Apollo and Daphne, Titian's Sacred and Profane Love, Raphael's Deposition and Caravaggio's Jerome.
Housed in the Palazzo Nuovo and the Palazzo dei Conservatori are treasure troves of ancient sculpture, with Greco-Roman statues - some in giant fragments - murals and friezes, as well as Renaissance paintings by the likes of Tintoretto and Caravaggio.
