'Rome was not built in a day'- the truth of this oft quoted adage hits you with full force, as we pack in all the 'must see' agenda into our guided city tour! According to legend, Rome was founded by Romulus and Remus in 753 BC.
Start your introduction to Rome with a journey to the Vatican the smallest nation in the world! It boasts a priceless art collection and is probably per square foot the richest country in the world!
The most famous square of the Vatican is St. Peter's Square with St. Peter's Basilica, one of the largest churches in the world. Gaze in awe at Michelangelo's Pieta. Continue your tour driving past the triumphal Arch of Constantine, one of the most important commemorative monuments of antiquity and then drive through Piazza Venezia, where the grandiose monument to the reunification of Italy is often referred to as the Marble wedding cake! Pass the Circus Maximus - the Hippodrome - known for its ancient chariot races, which was reconstructed by Hollywood for the well known movie 'Ben Hur'!
Pay tribute to the brave Gladiators of Rome, while we drive past the mighty Colosseum. At this amphitheatre, the notorious and gory gladiatorial games were held, where they fought one another and wild animals while the crowd roared!
Pass the ruins of the Roman Forum and end the tour at the famous Trevi Fountain.
Legend has it, that if you make a wish and toss a coin over your left shoulder into the fountain, you are sure to return to Rome! We at Cox & Kings look forward to that!
