Imagine a day which starts at the Colosseum with the ghosts of the gladiators, then stroll through the Roman Forum. Climb the Capitoline Hill, then continue to the massive monument to Victor Emanuel II. From here Rome lies all around you. In Rome you dont have to visit art galleries to see the art it is all around you. Fountains by Bernini, baroque squares such as the Piazza Navona, and apartments built into Roman theatres. Dont forget the Vatican City. Besides the Sistine Chapel there are Raphaels Rooms, including the School of Athens, the greatest celebration of how the classical world was reborn in Renaissance Rome. St Peters Basilica itself contains Michelangelos Piet. Visit the Campo dei Fiori morning market and pause for an espresso. Or just stand and watch the sunset on the Pincian Hill and grab a gelato. Out of the city we visit the water gardens of the Villa dEste and the ruins of Hadrians elaborate villa. Ostia Antica offers a day out to an Ancient Roman city by the sea. this is perhaps the best place to get an idea of what life was like in Ancient Rome. It is well known Rome was built onseven hills. For interest these hills are in no particular order: Aventine, Palatine, Capitoline, Quirinal, Viminal, Esquiline and Celian.
