Following you will cross the Bridge of the Angel to Piazza Navona once an ancient stadium transformed into a baroque square, and then wander over to the most glorious feet of architecture in all the world the Pantheon. You’ll read the history on the Column of Marcus Aurelius a delight for historians and the inspiration to the opening of the movie "Gladiator".

Enjoy the fresh produce and smell of Italian spices in the Roman market at Campo Dei Fiori there you will break for lunch or get in some gift shopping in some of Rome’s best boutiques.

You will listen to the verses written by romantics poet John Keats as he took his inspiration seated upon the Spanish steps and you will toss your coins into the world renowned Trevi Fountain.



Then you will take a walk back in time as you tour the Roman Forum and see the political and social center of what would rule from Portugal to Iran, from Britain to all the north of Africa. There you will learn about a death far more tragic than the death recounted by William Shakespeare’s "Tragedy of Julius Caesar" the death of the Great Roman Republic.

Finally hear the roar of the crowd as your English speaking guide transports you back in time to the blood of the arena. Learn of the gladiators whom risked brutal death in pursuit of glory in the Coliseum.
