The result of 3000 years of ad hoc urban development, Rome's cityscape is an exhilarating sight. Ancient icons such as the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Pantheon recall the city’s golden age as caput mundi (capital of the world), while monumental basilicas tell of its history as seat of the Catholic Church. Lording it over the skyline, St Peter’s Basilica towers over the Vatican, testifying to the ambition of Rome’s Renaissance popes and the genius of its game-changing architects. Elsewhere, ornate piazzas and showy fountains add a baroque flourish to the city's captivating streets.
Day 1 -MALTA-ROME
Meet the tour leader at Malta International for your flight to Rome. Proceed for City tour of Rome visiting Republic Square, Barberini Square, Veneto Street, Villa Borghese, Ripetta Street, Mausoleo di Augusto, Pietra and Parliamento Square. Later proceed to The Catacombs which are spread over 17 kilometers of underground caves, some of which are inaccessible. They are laid out on four levels – one on top of another. The catacombs of the Eternal City offer one of the most complete and eloquent pictures of the Christian community in Imperial Rome, and of Catholicism in the city between the 2nd and 9th centuries. Until the 2nd century, in fact, the early Christians didn’t have their own cemeteries but were buried alongside the pagans in communal burial grounds outside the city along the main consular roads. The Apostle Peter was buried on the Vatican hill and St. Paul along the road to Ostia. Transfer to your 4* Ripa Hotel.
