In Shakespeare's Julius Caesar, Brutus said, 'Not that I loved Caesar less, but that I loved Rome more." We think you'll make a similar proclamation-that you love Rome-during this week-long vacation to the 'Eternal City.' Rome brings you sumptuous cuisine, architectural and artistic treasures, excellent wine, splendid beauty, and ancient ruins. And no one brings you Rome like Monograms! On this 7-day vacation, we have arranged your hotel reservations, daily breakfast, and sightseeing. Plus, a one-of-a-kind feature is the Monograms Local Host, a local who is there for you throughout your stay to answer questions, offer suggestions, share little-known secrets, and help your vacation run smoothly.Your vacation begins as soon as you arrive in Rome, where we can seamlessly escort you from the airport to your selected hotel. Here, your Local Host will greet you with a warm "benvenuto," a smile, and a set of materials to help familiarize you with the city. The next day, after an included breakfast, we'll pick you up at your hotel for morning guided sightseeing, which also includes a headset. We'll take you to the Vatican Museums; the Sistine Chapel, where you'll view Michelangelo's The Last Judgment and his famous ceiling paintings; and St. Peter's Square and Basilica, built in 313 AD. We'll also take you to the iconic Colosseum, where you can imagine what it was like to be a gladiator in the 1st century, and the Roman Forum, where the oldest structures of the ancient city are located. And with Monograms, your inside visits to these must-see attractions include VIP access, which means you get to skip the lines! Why waste your time waiting in line like all the other tourists when you can be up close with the Vatican Museums' exhibits or standing inside the Colosseum rather than outside? You'll have four free days in Rome to explore on your own (with the support of your Local Host, of course). You may want to take an excursion to Pompeii; to the jet-set island of Capri; or to Tivoli, where Emperor Hadrian built his villa in the 2nd century. You may want to visit Rome's catacombs, take a walking tour that includes the Pantheon and Spanish Steps, shop at one of the many designer stores, and partake in the delicious Italian food. Be sure to throw a coin in Trevi Fountain, which is said to ensure your return to Rome. Just ask your Local Host for suggestions. And never fear?we've scouted out the city and know the best place to capture a photo of St. Peter's Basilica!Don't forget, your vacation package also includes buffet breakfast every day. Between the sightseeing and guides we've included, the breakfasts we've included, and the hotel we've booked, we've made your vacation easy. Add the comfort of knowing you'll have someone there who speaks the language, knows the city, and can assist you, and you've got yourself a marvelous vacation!
