Classical Tours

 

 

Welcome to our guide to CLASSICAL ROME.

The first things to explore while in Rome are antique and classical sites. We propose a series of tours of these MUST-SEE sites and monuments, led by professional guides. You can also find detailed descriptions that would help you get an overview of these monuments under our Useful Rome page.

Below is a list of our TOP things to see in Rome in the order of importance (from our point of view):

1. The Roman Forum is the symbol of antiquity par excellance. It was the center of the civic, juridical and economic life in Republican times. It is marvellous to discover the secrets hidden beneath each and every one of the rocks forming what is now an archeological site.

2. The Colosseum is a wonderful architectural complex without comparison in Roman art. Its classical name is the Flavian Amphitheater. It was built in 72 A.D. by an unknown architect.

3. The Pantheon is an imposing and breathtaking monument considered a masterpiece of Roman architecture. It is one of the most ancient and best conserved monuments in the world. Consul Agrippa had it built in 27 A.D.

4. Piazza Navona and Campo de' Fiori are the two main squares that define the heart of the historic center. With or without embarking on a tour, you can read more about them and just spend some time in the center of them both and sense their unique atmospheres.

5. Christian Rome is a complex aspect. Under this umbrella topic we would include churches and cathedrals, all testimonies of the grandour of Italian architects throught the ages. The tour we propose includes some of the main churches and cathedrals in Rome.

6. The Vatican, apart from being the smallest country in the world by both area and population (800 souls), it is also home of the Catholic Church and the site of some of the most exquisite testimonies of excellence in architecture, sculpture and urban planning. Our tour includes either the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel or the Basicila of St. Peter's or both.

7. Villa Borghese and the Borghese Gallery are the perfect combination for a walk in the middle of a green oasis in the center of Rome and a profound look into one of the most important collections of art from the 15th to the 18th centuries.
