THE ANCIENTS WERE RIGHT! Rome is the Eternal City and its 3,000-year heritage is evident on every street of this historic and cultural gem where modern life blends with the antiquities of a lost time. Join us for a week in Rome and enjoy three days of touring and three days to explore on our own from our centrally located Hotel Medici accommodations. Explore St. Peter's Square and Basilica with "jump-the-line" tickets for the Vatican Museum,
followed by a panoramic coach tour. Enjoy excursions to hilltop Tivoli—including guided tours of two UNESCO World Heritage Sites: Villa Adriana, the sprawling estate of Emperor Hadrian, and the 16th-century Villa d'Este, a Renaissance villa famous for its landscaped gardens and lavish fountains—and the Castelli Romani wine district where we'll visit the Apostolic Palace of Castel Gandolfo—the beloved summer residence of many Popes. Both excursions include lunch with wine. As you explore Rome on your own, we have a few suggestions: Don't miss the Borghese Museum—the art, the gardens and the building are extravagantly beautiful. Head to the Campo dei Fiori outdoor market, buy your wine, bread, cheese and enjoy a picnic at Piazza Navona as you people watch. You'll discover the treasures of this immense open-air museum go hand-in-hand with Rome's more modern pleasures—legendary cuisine, cutting-edge fashion and shopping!
