Day 2, Tues 17 September

The first full day of our tour begins with a guided bus excursion around ancient and Renaissance Rome, highlighting its geographical layout, earliest foundations and religious history, along with its main basilicas and Renaissance sites. We will travel by private bus and enjoy an informative commentary from our local guide along the way. After a visit to the Pantheon, there will be time to purchase your own lunch.

In the afternoon we will visit the Domus Aurea (Nero’s ‘Golden House’) and/or Castel Sant’Angelo (mausoleum, fortress and castle) to learn about Renaissance ‘grotesque’ art.
