Rome is the pivotal city of Europe, a capital that has dominated the history of the last two millennia. Its famous, great monuments are accompanied by a host of smaller, more difficult to reach, or just hidden sites and monuments all of which tell their own stories about the eternal city. This tour will take you to some of Rome’s greatest monuments but also to some of its most secret, through tombs and catacombs, temples and villas – it’s a chance to see the imperial city from a new point of view. We will be based in the very centre of the city with time for you to explore on your own.
