History

The Italian capital is truly one of the world's greatest cities, where 2000 years of history are reflected in a treasure trove of monuments and buildings crammed with art and heritage, and where present-day life thrives and buzzes amongst the relics of an ancient civilisation.

Bustling, colourful Rome will offer your students a truly unique experience. Though a lifetime would not be long enough to explore Rome, plan your stay carefully and you will be surprised at how much you can see and do.

Our included city travel card enables journeys across the length and breadth of the city and then we recommend you don your walking shoes so you can ‘do in Rome what the Romans do’ – walk!

Visiting attractions and free time in a new environment with their fellow classmates builds confidence and strengthens relationships between students. Expanding your students’ cultural awareness makes for a valuable and memorable experience.

01 Tour Highlights

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.

Colosseum

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.

Pantheon

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.

Capitoline Museums

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.
