Enjoy a four-course Christmas lunch at the hotel.

    Today you have the full day to discover the Italian capital city of Rome on our included excursion. Also, known as the ‘Eternal City’ and the famed city of the Roman Empire, it has been a millennium long centre of power, culture and religion. The Historic Centre is a UNESCO World Heritage Site with wonderful palaces, churches, basilicas, Roman ruins, monuments and fountains. It has an immensely rich historical heritage and cosmopolitan atmosphere. Upon arrival in this beautiful city you will have time at leisure to savor the special ambience of this former capital of the Roman Empire.

    A lovely place to explore on foot, our optional walking tour is a fantastic way to introduce you to the city’s array of spectacular sites. We see the beautiful Piazza Venezia, the central hub of Rome in which many thoroughfares intersect. The imposing Monument to Vittorio Emanuele II, first king of Italy, dominates the piazza. The Viale di Fori Imperiali starts here, a main thoroughfare, which leads past the Roman Forum and Trajan’s Forum, to the mighty Colosseum. Discover the history of this great building; where up to 55,000 spectators witnessed gladiators fight to the death (entrance not included). Although Rome is a relatively compact city, we would remind you that this is a walking tour, not suitable for anyone with mobility difficulties and we would recommend you wear suitable shoes for the day.
