We continue to Piazza Venezia with the imposing “Vittoriano” and we will arrive in Piazza del Campidoglio, another very famous sign of the Eternal City. We will then walk down Via del Campidoglio to Via San Teodoro to have a view of the Roman Forum as well as the whole complex of the Forum & Coliseum. A stop here for an unforgettable picture is a real must. The last stop is at the church of S. Maria in Cosmedin, famous for its portico housing the well known Bocca della Verità. It is a large stone disk depicting the face of a faun or river god with its mouth open. According to the legend the stone was used to judge people’s honesty.

Rome


 

Rome is known as the 'Eternal City', the centre of Western Civilization and one of the most widely visited cities in the world.  It is a city of contrasts, both ancient and modern. Romantic and harsh. It is a place of beautiful warm light and many dark corners. 
 
The layers of history in Rome are second to none in the world and to appreciate Rome, in all its glory, it is useful and helpful to have some understanding of what happened here over the centuries.  Whether you do tours with us or another company, it is most helpful to read - do guided tours - watch films.  
 
This city is one of the most important cultural, artistic and intellectual centres in Europe.  It is also home to Vatican City, the centre of the Catholic Church.
 
The history of Rome and Vatican City draw over 58 million visitors each year, almost as many people who live in Italy.
