Can a traveler ever get tired of Italy? The answer is no. As far as I am concerned no vacation to Europe is complete without a significant sojourn in Italy. Along with the sun, the food and the wine; you ineveitably soak up the culture of this remarkable country. And you are always much richer for the experience.
I hope you will enjoy this very educational article by Les Sheppard, who makes a living out of telling others about experiencing the City of Rome. What a lucky guy! Anyway, take notes, because he has a lot of helpful information for your next vacation to Italy.
Five New Rome Guided Tours that bring this Amazing City to Life
by Guest Author: Les Sheppard
Maybe until now you wouldn't know that I make part of my living by writing about the city of Rome, its people, passions, food, sport, history and culture. In fact, I own a web site called Lets-Travel-Rome.com, which kinda happened by happy accident after I visited this great city with my Wife - one anniversary, some time ago.
This is a city where some of the best times can be found by just getting out there, and exploring for yourself. It can be great fun to just wander the streets of the Eternal City, but I also recommend that visitors try some Rome guided tours to add something special and memorable to any visit.
For starters, now it's possible to take in the Art, History and Religion of Rome in one day! A trip to Rome is incomplete without visiting the Vatican Museum and learning about Christian Rome. Marvel at the magnificent beauty of the Sistine Chapel before venturing out to explore the ancient catacombs. You have the option to end your tour with a step back in time to become a part of Roman history in the amazing Time Line Tour.
Can you imagine a beautiful evening tour that takes you from the floodlit ruins of ancient and imperial Rome (The Pantheon and the Colosseum) to the magnificent piazzas and fountains designed by the artists Bernini and Michelangelo, to the home of the Catholic Church, St Peters. At the Trevi Fountain, throw your coin into the water to ensure your return.
Or how about this.. Experience the wonder of the Vatican on this fascinating walking tour and explore its history and beauty. Your native English-speaking guide will share with you the best of the Vatican, including the lesser known spots and you will gain a broad understanding of this unique place.
If you want something more contemporary, ride the time machine and discover the amazing 2750 year history of Rome. Take a trip back in time into ancient Roman history up to present day. This tour includes a one hour show with high-tech virtual projections of the most famous Roman monuments. Rome will never look the same !
Maybe you would prefer to discover Rome and its famous landmarks aboard a deluxe two hour dinner cruise, which includes outstanding Italian cuisine. Witness the breathtaking Eternal City by sailing down the River Tiber… a spectacular way to see Rome or celebrate a special occasion. The romantic strains of music begin the moment the boats casts off.
Or how about meeting a local dignitary during your Rome guided tour. During one unusual visit you can be in the presence of Beatrice Cenci, Donna Olimpia, Count Cagliostro's wife and the beautiful Costanza De Cupis. A fascinating walk in Ponte quarter where it is possible to learn strange and mysterious histories of ancient Rome with an evocative atmosphere. This walking tour will take you through Navona Square, Via del Governo Vecchio, Ponte Sant' Angelo and Piazza Farnese.

Take the easy way - and book this efficient service online now and save time at your destination. And while you're there, check out the other Rome guided tours mentioned above.
