ROME IN ONE DAY - VATICAN & COLOSSEUM WITH REAL SKIP THE LINE
A whole life will not be enough to visit all of Rome, but if you want to get an idea of how much beauty could reside in a single city, take a walk around the Colosseum or stay looking on the wonders enclosed in the Vatican Museum. Get a glimpse of the Sistine Chapel and you will be in love with the ethernal city. "To Rome! You must go to Rome, if you would make something of yourself! That is indeed a city! That is a life! That is a world! As soon as we enter Rome, we are transformed, and feel our-selves great, like the objects which surround us” (Goethe)
VATICAN MUSEUMS, SISTINE CHAPEL & PETER’S BASILICA MORNING TOUR
If there is a place where holiness, beauty and history get together in a perfect wedding, that place is Vatican. Giotto, Leonardo Da Vinci, Raffaello, Perugino and Caravaggio will bring you in a walk through centuries of art history. The Apollo del Belvedere, Lacoonte group and Perseus with the Medusa's head will make you reflect on marble's soul. Leaf through this huge art's book: you are in the Vatican Museum. "Real museums are places where time is transformed into space". (Orhan Pamuk)
There is a special light. A particular light by which Rome shows its best part. The night tour will let you discover a different city, full of life and happiness. The moon will give you the welcome among Forum ruins, offering a magic atmosphere to the hotbed of the eternal city. "Rome is not a city as others. It is a huge musuem, a parlour to cross on tiptoes." (Alberto Sordi)
ARCHEOLOGICAL WONDERS OF ROME
Walking in the center of Rome means crossing centuries of history. Get a tour guide to take you in this time travel by which going back will be very hard. Get excited cutting through the roads which Ceasar and Augustus walked on, caress the stones which gladiators brushed against before going into the Colosseum, imagine the Nero's gaze while Rome was on fire: choose our tour to live an experience joined by history. "When an existence as Rome's one is considered, over two-thousand years old, and it is thought that is the same ground, the same hill, often the same colums and walls, and traces of the ancient nature are caught among people, it feels pervaded from great destiny decree." (Goethe)
BORGHESE GALLERY AND PIC NIC IN VILLA BORGHESE
A wonders wealth: that is all we can say about Borghese Gallery. By the time you fall in love with Canova, Bernini will arrive to catch your heart. The colours play of Caravaggio will make you gasp, and Tiziano, Raffaello, Rubens and Antonella da Messina taught to the world what beauty means . "The sculpture enhance a soul to the marble" - François René de Chateaubriand
TREVI FOUNTAIN, PIAZZA NAVONA AND THE PAPAL AUDIENCE
It is said that if you flip a coin into the Trevi's fountain, the destiny will bring you back in Rome. And after seeing Piazza Navona, with the Fountain of the Four Rivers, Sant'Agnese in Agone and the Vatican, it could be difficult not to ask to the fate to let you go back to the Ethernal City. Even the Pope Francesco's benediction is added, allowing you to pass this day which will stay in your hearts for ever. "There is a Roman legend / connected to this old fountain / which if you flip a coin into / you force the destiny to bring you back". (Claudio Villa)
FOOD TOUR OF ROME – CAMPO DE’ FIORI JEWISH GHETTO TRASTEVERE
A feast of tastes and colours : this is the Campo de' Fiori market. The Roman history, the city character and the residents meet up under Giordano Bruno's statue every morning since 1869. There is nothing better than the historical market, the Ghetto and Trastevere to find out the real traditional tastes of a centuries-old history. "Everybody eats, but few of them can recognise the tastes" (Confucio)
ESPRESSO & GELATO TOUR
Coffee is magic. A little miracle which amazes every day: it is a custom in Italy. Black, strong and hot, it is considered the real nectar of the gods. Find out a world of taste through this tour, among coffee smell and ice-cream flavour: the real Italian excellences. We cannot buy happiness, but we can buy coffee, which more or less is the same thing.
If you have never been in countryside, you cannot say that you know Italy. This is where the real tradition of tastes and local smells take place: Castelli Romani (Roman Castles), with their suggestive alleys, their inns and their medieval buildings are a sight for sore eyes and taste. Discover the flavours of the Romanella, the real Porchetta, cold cuts and cheeses, having a real Italian meal. "A bottle of wine contains more philosophy than all the books in the world." (Pasteur)
Florence is a painting, a book, a piece of art. It is indescribably beautiful. Thanks to high-speed trains, Italian excellences, it is possible to reach it in a hour and half: do not lose this Renaissance leap. Let's enrapture yourself with the sight of the world's biggest masonry dome. Taste the real Chianti and fall in love with Michelangelo's David: Florence has never been so close. "Consider your origins: you were not made to live as brutes, but to follow virtue and knowledge." Dante Alighieri
VILLA D’ESTE AND HADRIAN’S VILLA IN TIVOLI
Right at Rome's gates, Tivoli gives away a time leap: go to find the emperator Adriano in his country villa, or take a walk along with Este family through their wonderful gardens, full of fountains. "In the last few days I have been to Tivoli and I have seen one of the first wonders of nature. The waterfalls, the ruins and the overall landscape belong to those objects, the knowledge of which enriches our most inner souls" (Goethe)
UNESCO JEWELS: POMPEI AND ITS RUINS DAY TRIP FROM ROME
A disaster which later it was found a great safeness. Vesuvius destroyed a city, but it keep it intact, almost alive: Pompeii. A 79 A.D. picture. A freeze-frame which has lasted almost two millenia. If we add a stroll along Naples' seafront, the amazing Vesuvius view and a nice cofee, probably we will find the perfect day recipe. "Hi great and unlucky Rome's daughter. The poetry of your ruins is unique in the world." (Cesare Malpica).
CAPRI ISLAND WITH BLUE GROTTO IN ONE DAY
You will reach on Capri's island with ease; you will discover it with calmness, finding out the most suggestive conrners; you will enjoy a traditional lunch in one of many restaurants on the island, and you will conclude this day on the earth heart. We want to share a secret with you: the earth has a blue blood. The Blue Grotto proves it. "When you leave Rome for Capri, you will move from one area of the world to another. As if you pass through an ocean. A leap which normally takes 12 hours by airplane. There is trasformation on this passage, the orography, everything, so radical that suddenly you pass from a dimension to another. And that one in which you pass, when you reach Capri, is the myth dimension." (Raffaele La Capria)
AMALFI COAST AND POSITANO ONE DAY TRIP
UNESCO World Heritage, Amalfi coast seems a suspended balcony between blue and green: the sea on one side, and the Monti Lattari on the other. The colours and landscapes of this place cannot be caught on a canvas, or in a photographic lens. Just your eyes can fully get their beauty. It is the land of the lemons, the dried salt and the beaches. The land of the smile and the taste. The eyes will run among Mediterranean forest, inlets, bays and viceregal era fire towers. And after running , they will stay on the sea: the great protagonist of the beauty. "Amalfi Coast is a terrace on the infinity." (Fabrizio Caramagna)
VENICE IN A DAY – TOUR FROM ROME
A city so mentioned by poets, so desired by lovers and so visited by travellers as Venice, does not exist. Everyone who does not have oriententation are so lucky, because they can find out the most charming corners, those most hidden, getting lost among Venice alleys: going in a calle, turning a corner, passing through a portico and wounding up in courtyard, in a campo or in a rio: meandering between unexpected and unforeseen. "It is a continuous surprise for eyes and for the hearth. When I seek another word for 'music', I never find any other word than Venice." (Friedrich Nietzsche)
ASSISI ST FRANCIS BASILICA DAY TOUR
In the footsteps of the most famous Saint of the world, go to visit his city, his heritage, his first church.
