will be waiting to greet you in your preferred language, be it Spanish,
Japanese, French, or English. After introductions, you'll be escorted
in a private car to the hotel you've selected. You'll have a chance

2 - IMPERIAL ROME WALKING TOUR (B)
Enjoy a leisurely breakfast at your hotel, until your guide calls for
you to begin your walking visit to glorious Rome of the empire. In just
a few hours, you'll pass through centuries of history. You'll take in
the Colosseum, completed in 72 A.D. by Emperor Vespasian, once the site
of gladiatorial bouts and chariot races, and so solidly constructed
that it still is largely intact. You'll continue to the Forum, the main
public square of the ancient city, site of markets, public ceremonies,
and religious rituals. You'll take in the Monument to the Unknown Soldier
in the Piazza Venezia, and journey back across centuries again to the
Piazza del Campidoglio, the masterpiece city hall square designed by
Michelangelo. And you'll appreciate unforgettable hilltop views of all
of Rome. Spend your afternoon as you choose. Your host will be pleased
to call a taxi to take you to your hotel, or recommend a restaurant
for lunch. Rome offers an endless array of temptations, and your only
problem will be choosing among them: a stroll on the Via del Corso,
shopping on the Via Condotti, browsing the Via delle Carrozze and the
Via della Croce. Of course, there's nothing as Roman as stopping for
a cappuccino at the Antico Caffč Greco in the heart of the Via Condotti.
Indulge yourself! For dinner, we can recommend typically Roman restaurants
near the Forum, the Colosseum, or in other parts of Rome. Your host
will be happy to discuss your preferences and write down some suggestions,
with full directions.
3 TREASURES OF THE VATICAN (B)
Your Roman host will once again call for you after breakfast at your
lodgings, to take you on a walking visit (or, as an option, by private
car) to Rome's universal masterpieces of religious art and architecture.
You'll travel together to the Vatican, and on the way, discuss the background
of this unique city-state as patron of the arts, temporal power, and
beacon of faith for millions worldwide. Your morning-and more, for there's
so much to see-will be devoted to the Vatican Museums and St. Peter's
Basilica. Count on four hours for the visit. Of course, you'll see the
absolute musts for anyone visiting the Holy See, including Michelangelo's
ceiling frescoes in the Sistine Chapel, his Last Judgment over the altar,
and masterpieces by Raphael. You'll continue to St. Peter's Basilica,
the greatest church in the world by any measure, to view its grandeur
as a whole, and its individual treasures, from the Pietą by Michelangelo
to the Papal altar and Throne of St. Peter by Bernini. Afterward, a
horse-drawn carriage will convey you into the heart of Rome, to view
monuments and treasures from all eras, including Castle Sant'Angelo
and the Pantheon of the ancient empire, and the beloved Fontana de Trevi
and the Piazza di Spagna of more recent times. Once again, the remainder
of the day will be yours to spend as you choose, shopping or enjoying
the cuisine and street life of one of the world's most lively cities,
with recommendations by your guide.
