Rome & Area
Rome. This enigmatic city has it all with a distinct character in one of the most vibrant countries of Europe. Enjoy a city break in Rome, from the floor of the Colosseum where gladiators fought, and the genteel halls of the Vatican where you will find the world's oldest book, to the site of the Trevi Fountain, made famous by the classic film "Three Coins in the Fountain". Smile - for what worries can you possibly have when everything is looked after seamlessly for you from start to finish... Bravo!

A welcome package with your vouchers, a city map, train tickets (if relevant) and any other touristic information that we deem you may find useful will be waiting for you upon your arrival at your first hotel on your trip.
Enjoy one of the most delightful and fascinating walks in the world! Monumental Rome is a mix of piazzas (squares), Renaissance architectural masterpieces, and thousands of years of history -all interwoven with cafes, shopping, and great gelato! Your walk through the historical centre starts at the Spanish Steps, famously leading down to the historic center of the city and surrounded with fabulous shopping, from bargain to the top brands. Continue to the Trevi Fountain where legend says if you flip a coin into the water you are sure to return to Rome. The Piazza Colona's great buildings are hemmed in by rushing traffic, so continue on a few blocks to the massive Pantheon, which was built in the First Century B.C. and for millennia was the highest arched building in the world. It’s a short walk to Piazza Navona, with the famous Fountain of the Four Rivers, Bernini's masterpiece. This square is packed with artists, cafes, and a swirl of faces - it’s a great place to enjoy the view. You can explore this part of the city for days!
Hotel Trevi (3*) is two steps away from its namesake the Trevi Fountain. It offers a refined atmosphere equipped with the best facilities within a historical 16th century palace. It is located in the proximity of the famous “Via Veneto”, and the magnificent Spanish Steps. Breakfast is served on a splendid, yet peaceful, rooftop garden where guests can enjoy the view of a typical urban skyline of the Eternal City. Comfort, tradition and efficiency is the principle for making each stay unforgettable. Under new Roman law, hotels charge a small amount per traveller per day as a “tourist tax”, which needs to be paid locally through your hotel in Rome. Amounts may vary, but currently the cost is 2EUR per person for 2* & 3* hotels and 3EUR for 4* & 5* hotels. The charges will be added to your bill upon check out and are non-negotiable.
