Day at Leisure.
Head off the beaten track with this exciting way of discovering the Eternal City. We invite you to explore the timeless beauty of this city from an unparalleled vantage point: the River Tiber. This beautiful winding current has brought life and breath to the heart of the city since Rome’s foundation in 753 B.C. The river, which flows from the shores of Ostia to the belly of Rome, passes alongside a series of breath-taking locations, including Isola Tiberina, Piazza del Popolo, Castel S’Angelo, Vatican City, and many more – not to mention a variety of amazing bridges. On the one hand, navigating the modern Tiber is a splendid way of getting to know those parts of Rome usually overlooked by tourists. Learn all about the history and old customs of the Roman people, or simply relish a romantic experience. Your ticket is valid for 24 hours with hop on-hop off formula - the best way to get to know a city. Jump off the boat at any stop that is the most interesting to you and when you are ready to continue, wait at the nearest stop for another boat to pick you up.
Step off the tourist track in the Colosseum and get a gladiator’s-eye-view by using their special entrance and stepping onto the normally off-limits arena floor. You can’t get closer to the action than this. The arena floor is where people actually fought and died in the Colosseum. While most visitors only ever see it from the stands, you’ll bypass long, general entrance lines and step directly onto it via the special Gladiator’s Gate. As you marvel at the great amphitheatre around you, your expert guide will tell stories to transport back nearly 2,000 years, when vicious blood sports were the most popular form of entertainment in Rome. During your tour you’ll also explore the rest of the Colosseum, including the first floor and Roman Forum overlook. Then you’ll head into the Roman Forum and the Palatine hill to learn the wider history of Imperial Rome. Through the stories and anecdotes of your expert guide, the ruins will come to life and you’ll have no problem imagining the heyday of this incredible civilization. Our fully-licensed, expert guides are the best in the business. Far from giving you rote history lessons, they pull you into the epic story of Rome and allow you to relive it with them, one step at a time.
Picturesque rural villages, delicious local specialties and delicious wine from the region, Castelli Romani has it all! Discover it for yourself with a half-day excursion in small groups. Escape the hustle and bustle of the city and the crowds for a few hours to explore Castelli Romani, an area with beautiful villages on the hills of Alban. Every year many local and foreign tourists come to this area attracted by the climate, the slow pace of life, the excellent gastronomy and its wine production, which has helped the area gain international fame. The areas include Ariccia, Genzano and Albano, known for their dishes and wines. Stroll the streets and taste the best of gastronomy accompanied by your local guide, who will introduce you to the most important aspects of his culture, history and cuisine.
