There’s no other place like Rome. The Italian Capital is every stereotype you’ve ever heard and even more. The rich tapestry of ancient history, monuments, emotional people, and iconic food make Rome the ideal destination for anyone with a thirst for world culture.
Equally as predictable in Rome are the attractions that people want to see, and the cool things they want to do.
Everyone wants to see the Colosseum, the Pantheon, and St. Peters. And for good reason too as they’re all exceptional things to see. Each one will leave your jaw more open than the last. But surely there’s even something less predictable to do, and Travel Experience in Italy wants to show you. That’s why you should book our Rome Escorted Tour.
