See the pope and his cardinals deliver their weekly address in Vatican City with a ticket to the papal audience. Follow a local guide through the crowds to a prime position to see the pope, and gain insight into the historical traditions associated with the papacy and the Vatican.

Learn the origins of the papacy from the time of the first Christians through the Roman era to the present day, and hear of the famous artists like Michelangelo who contributed to Vatican’s aesthetic beauty. Your audio headset ensures that you'll hear your guide over the hubbub of the audience.

Explore the heart of Italy’s ancient capital and hear tales of myth and legend on this 1.5-hour ghost and mystery walking tour of Rome. When the sun sets, a darker and more mysterious side of the city comes to life. Make your way along winding alleyways and through ancient squares in Rome’s age-old center, and listen as your guide regales you with enthralling historical and supernatural mysteries. Discover highlights such as the Ponte Sisto, Palazzo Farnese and the Castel Sant'Angelo illuminated at night.

Meet your guide beneath the imposing Baroque façade of Sant'Andrea della Valle church as night begins to fall. Then, set off to begin your ghost and mystery walking tour. With thousands of years of ancient history round every corner, Rome is the perfect place to explore the borders between fact and legend.

Head along the Corso Vittorio to the beautiful yet mysterious Campo de' Fiori. This ancient town square has been a vibrant center of commerce and culture since the 13th century, but illuminated under the cover of dusk, it takes on an altogether more sinister feel. Listen as your guide talks of the ghostly goings-on to which the Campo de' Fiori has played host over the centuries.

Wander through the impressive Piazza Farnese, home to city highlights such as the 16th-century Palazzo Farnese — considered by many to be among the most important High Renaissance palaces in Rome. Cross the Tiber River towards the church of Santa Maria dell'Orazione e Morte and admire the elegant Ponte Sisto, beautifully lit against the darkness of night.

Discover the site of the ancient Corte Savella Prison, where late-Renaissance noblewoman Beatrice Cenci was unfairly put to death for her father’s murder in the 16th century. It is said that in early September each year — on the anniversary of her torture and death — her ghost can still be heard vainly appealing for justice to finally be served.

Explore the Via dei Banchi Vecchi and the Via del Banco di Santo Spirito with your guide, and arrive before the imposing Castel Sant’Angelo — commissioned by the Roman Emperor Hadrian as a private mausoleum from 123 AD. Once a fortress, Papal residence and prison, the Castel Sant’Angelo is shrouded in mystery and legend.

After 1.5 hours exploring the winding alleyways through Rome’s ancient heart, your tour will conclude at Castel Sant'Angelo.

Escape the city’s hustle and bustle to discover the surrounding countryside with your guide. Visit the Catacombs of San Callisto or San Sebastiano — widely considered to be among Rome’s finest remaining burial sites — and explore their labyrinthine underground tunnels. Admire feats of engineering from a past civilization in the antique arches of Rome’s mighty aqueducts and gain valuable insight into one of the world’s most fascinating ancient civilizations.

    Combining coach or minivan travel with on-foot exploration, your morning guided tour departs from central Rome and takes you beyond the city walls and out along the rustic Appian Way — one of the earliest and most strategically significant roads of Rome’s ancient republic.

    Stop first for a walk with your guide through the countryside near the southern edge of ancient Rome. Admire the attractive Italian scenery outside the city and perhaps take time to capture the landscape through the lens of your camera.

    Continue on to Rome’s ancient Catacombs of San Callisto or San Sebastiano. The Catacombs of San Callisto were built in the 2nd century and named after the deacon Saint Callixtus, while San Sebastiano is a small Christian cemetery and one of Rome’s most accessible catacombs. Explore the underground tunnels with your guide, hear of their history and gain insight into the burial techniques prevalent those centuries ago.

    Leaving the Catacombs behind and travel onward to admire Rome’s remaining aqueducts. The Romans were masters of engineering and the aqueducts still standing today are testament to their skills. Listen as your guide explains how and why the aqueducts were built here and marvel at the amazing feat of engineering they represent.

    After three hours exploring the Catacombs and countryside along Rome’s ancient Appian Way, return to your original departure point to conclude your tour.

    Caravaggio spent much of his life in Rome, and now the city is filled with his masterpieces and artistic treasures. Your guided Rome walking tour takes you to top Rome attractions featuring must-see Caravaggio paintings, including beautiful churches and monuments. Hear interesting theories on this intriguing artist before visiting the inside of the Pantheon. If you only have a short time in Rome and you’re not sure where to start, book this excellent Caravaggio walking tour of Rome!

    Your tour will begin at Piazza del Popolo, in front of Santa Maria del Popolo, which holds two extraordinary pieces from Caravaggio and is topped by a magnificent dome designed and frescoed by Raphael. Then, follow your guide to the historic center in the Campo Marzio district, along Via Ripetta, where Caravaggio famously drew his inspiration from the residents of the area.

    From here, head to the beautiful church Santa Maria della Pace, taking in Raphael’s fresco of Sybil’s dance and the angels that adorn the ceiling. Continue to the Saint’Agostino church to enjoy a painting and a fresco before moving on to the church of San Luigi dei Francesi, where the trilogy dedicated to San Matteo is kept, some of the most mysterious and intense paintings ever created by Caravaggio.

    Escape the downtown Rome crowds and head off the beaten track to discover one of the city's most infamous districts. The Esposizione Universale di Roma (better known by its acronym, EUR) was commissioned by Italian dictator Benedito Mussolini in the 1930s to showcase architecture that portrayed his fascist ideologies. Today, it is a thriving commercial suburb. On this four-hour walking tour, visit EUR's Square Colosseum, the Via dei Fori Imperial road and much more. As you explore, your guide will give insight into the historical and political significance of its buildings and monuments.

    After meeting your knowledgeable guide in central Rome, head off by luxury coach to Rome's EUR district, just south of the city center. The creation of the EUR was a huge, 1930s urban regeneration project, spearheaded by Mussolini, Italy's controversial prime minister and self-titled Il Duce (meaning "the Leader"), who intended to showcase the area at the 1942 World's Fair to celebrate 20 years of fascist Italy.

    However, the World's Fair was abandoned at the onset of World War II, and, subsequently, Mussolini's ambitious EUR project was left incomplete. Although work continued after the war ended, the newer buildings lacked the influence of political agenda and failed to match the grandeur of the regime's earlier architecture. The area as it stands today retains the tantalizing air of an unfinished project.

    During your morning walking tour, walk through the EUR's large, symmetrical streets and see examples of Neoclassical architecture from the fascist era. Hear tales of 1930s Rome from your expert guide, and learn about Mussolini’s notorious reign.

    Highlights of your EUR walking tour include the Via dei Fori Imperial, the road that linked the Rome Colosseum to the fascist party's headquarters in Piazza Venezia, and the Square Colosseum (Palazzo della Civilta del Lavoro) with its distinctive arches imbedded in its white, marble facade. Just outside of the EUR, visit the Foro Italico, Rome's impressive, fascist-era sports center that is home to an incredible 120-foot-high (36-meter) obelisk and the Stadio dei Marmi, a running track surrounded by 60 marble statues.

    After you’ve seen the best EUR sights and satisfied your curiosity about fascism in Rome, head back to central Rome, where your unique morning tour ends.
