Rome

 

 

The imperial capital still contains so many of the iconic sites of a great empire.

 

Our groups here visit the Colosseum and the Roman Forum, together with one of the catacombs.  A trip out of the city takes you to Ostia Antica and the beautifully preserved ruins of the port city.

 

We recommend an excursion to Tivoli, to visit Hadrian's Villa, a truly exceptional complex of classical buildings dating from the second century CE.

 

A tour to Rome may be extended to the Bay of Naples to take in the great archaeological sites of that area.
