Rome – Tours for Groups

  • Destination: Italy
  • Duration: 7 days

Tours to Rome are so much more than just stunning art and many historic sights which seem to be everywhere in the Italian capital. For over the past two and a half thousand years, Rome has played an important role in European history and Western civilization. Today, “The Eternal City” is very much a global city and is one of the most visited cities in the world. It is also an important religious centre for Roman Catholics with over 400 churches and is the traditional seat of the Catholic faith at St. Peter’s Basilica.

The city’s charm with a mixture of new and old combined with exceptional food and drink makes it a fabulous destination for students across many subject areas and of all ages. What better way to supplement your student’s learning than to go to the city and let experience for themselves some of the world’s most recognizable landmarks and places that inspired so many great people in Western civilisation.

Sights & places of interest in Rome to visit

Rome-4Originally built in 80 AD, this amphitheatre in the centre of Rome is one of the greates works of architecture and engineering and one of the most recognizable landmarks in all of the world. It was able to hold between 50,000 – 80,000 spectators at any of the events which were held there including gladiators fighting to the death, public spectacles and executions.

Roman Forum
Rome-11This square in central Rome is widely considered to be one of the most celebrated meeting places in all of history. Originally a rectangular plaza and used as a market, it grew to become the sight for several important ancient government buildings and monuments. It was the centre of Roman politics and a place of important commercial affairs.

Rome-8This building was originally built between around 14 AD and is one of the best preserved Ancient Roman buildings and has been in continuous use throughout history. Consecrated as a church to “St. Mary and the Martyr” since the 7th century, it contains tombs of some famous Italians such as Raphael, Victor Emmanuel, and Umberto I. The square in front of the Pantheon called the Piazza della Rotonda is also one of the most fashionable and trendy squares in all of Rome.

St. Peter’s Basilica
Rome-13This church is the official seat of the head of the Roman Catholic faith and is located within a small country in central Rome called Vatican City. The church has one of the most famous designs of Renaissance architecture as created by Michelangelo, Donato Bramante and other Renaissance masters. The church houses the tomb of St. Peter and former popes as well as many stunning works of art.

Sistine Chapel
1024px-Chapelle_sixtine2This chapel is the official residence of the Pope in the Vatican City and where the Papal conclave takes place. However, it is probably most well-known for its vaulted painted ceiling which was created by Michelangelo. The ceiling’s various painted elements form a larger story depicting scenes from the Book of Genesis.

Trevi Fountain
Rome-6Easily one of the most recognisable fountains in all of the world, the Trevi Fountain was designed by Italian Architect Nicola Salvi and completed in 1762. The fountain was placed at a crucial junction where three aqueducts meet. The fountain has been immortalised in several well-known films including La Dolce Vita.

Castel Sant' Angelo
Rome-2This structure was built originally as a mausoleum for the Roman Emperor Hadrian. It was built on the site where it was believed the Archangel Michael appeared atop of the mausoleum and afterwards the plague ended in Rome.

Palatine Hill
1024px-PalatineterracingThis hilltop in central Rome is the centremost of the Seven Hills of Rome and one of the oldest parts of the city. The hill stands some 40 metres above the Roman Forum and was the site of the Imperial Palace complex.
