The Roman Forum was the religious and political focus of the city in Republican and Imperial times. This interesting ensemble of ancient ruins reflects twelve centuries of history, which created Roman civilisation (exterior view only).
Photograph Rome’s finest amphitheatre, the Colosseum. Commissioned by Emperor Vespasian in 72 AD, this immense structure once held up to 55,000 people. Now standing empty and in ruin, echoes of its glorious past can still be heard (exterior view only).
The centre of the Roman Catholic faith, St. Peter's Basilica is one of the most famous cathedrals in the world. With its immense dome, lavishly decorated interior, impressive exterior and grand piazza, it truly is a sight to behold. Your guide will offer interesting facts about this incredible monument before you enter independently.
During the afternoon, enjoy some free time to explore Rome independently from St Peter’s Square. Have a spot of luncheon, do some shopping or perhaps visit another of Rome’s top attractions.
