holiday in rome FOR 2
experience the eternal city
Rome was called the “Eternal City” by the ancient Romans because they believed that no matter what happened in the rest of the world, the city of Rome would always remain standing. Few cities are as steeped in living history as Rome. The city dazzles with iconic Roman ruins, a wealth of art and architecture, and lively historic squares. Classical ruins and early Christian places of worship stand next to – or sometimes lie beneath – Renaissance palazzos and Baroque fountains. It's impossible not to feel the pull of the past when spending time in the vibrant Italian capital.
The Sina Bernini Bristol in Rome is one of the most renowned 5-star hotels in Rome with over 140 years of history. Facing the stunning Piazza Barberini, located at the beginning of Via Veneto and a few steps from Piazza di Spagna and the Trevi Fountain, this luxury hotel has one of the most enviable locations in Rome. Enjoy a 6-night stay in a deluxe room with breakfast and access to the Wellbe Luxury Spa featuring a fitness area with Technogym equipment, a Jacuzzi, sauna and a Turkish bath (treatments not included).
Enjoy an Vatican experience reserved for a VIP! Discover the Sistine Chapel, Vatican Museums and St. Peter’s Basilica on a private guided tour. Skip the lines for an exclusive tour after opening hours of the Vatican Museum’s seemingly endless masterpieces of painting and sculpture. Then continue to the wonderful Gallery of the Chandeliers, Galleries of the Tapestries, and Geographic Maps, Rooms of Raffaello, and the Gallery of the Apostolic Library. Crown your visit with Michelangelo’s immortal Sistine Chapel bathed in glorious light.
Papal Audience Experience with Pope Francis – a once in a lifetime event!
You will be escorted through the crowds to a prime viewing spot in St. Peter's Square by your guide, who will provide in-depth insight into the history and traditions of the Papacy and papal audience ceremony so you're fully prepared for the moment when Pope Francis takes the stage along with his Cardinals as they perform blessings in many languages, sing hymns and give homilies.
Finally, zip around Rome’s palazzos and piazzas on a private 3-hour Vespa tour. Follow your tour guide as he leads you to iconic landmarks like the Colosseum, the Pantheon and the Circus Maximus. Hop off along the way to throw a coin in the Trevi Fountain, soak up the atmosphere in Piazza Navona and Piazza Venezia, or snap a photo sitting on the famous Spanish Steps.
