Departure TimesFlorence - 7:00am
The “Eternal City” of Rome‘s streets, monuments and sights tell the story of a city and civilization with more than 2500 years of history. Fast forward to today and you have a bustling, beautiful city built around some of the world’s most historic sights from the Colosseum to the Pantheon to the Spanish Steps. You'll have a full day to enjoy this amazing city! Trips taking place on Sundays give you the opportunity to join the pilgrims in St. Peter’s Square for Pope Francesco’s mass & Angelus prayer from the Vatican apartment!
Trip meets at 7am at the SMN train station (exact time & area specified when you book and receive your confirmation).
We will transfer from Florence to Rome and upon arrival the Euroadventures leader will lead you to the Vatican to enter St. Peter’s Square and Vatican City. The stop at the Vatican (and the Pope’s mass on the Sunday’s when he is performing it) will be followed by a several hour walk through Rome’s most historic and interesting sights and neighborhoods including Castel Sant’Angelo, Piazza Navona, the Colosseum, the Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, Vittorio Emmanuele, and more! Before departure you will have several hours to visit museums, go inside sights and/or have time to explore, shop and take in a great Roman meal!
After the day in Rome, you'll have two options for returning to Florence (which you choose the day before the trip takes place) so those that want to return earlier have the possibility, as well as those that want a longer time in Rome can experience more of the city, have time for dinner, and have a later return:
- Options #1 - Depart Rome at approx. 5pm to return to Florence at approx. 8pm
- Option #2 - Depart Rome at approx. 8pm to return to Florence at approx. 11pm
*Trips taking place on Sunday give you the opportunity to see the Pope at the Vatican in St. Peter's Square (when he is performing his mass or blessing), and trips taking place on other days give you the opportunity to go inside St. Peter's, the Vatican museum, etc. (as these Vatican sites are closed on Sundays normally).
