Discover Europe

Now it's time to decide what to do in Rome: go classic or modern.

Classic Rome

Peek through the Aventine Keyhole—a tiny, ancient peephole in an unassuming door nestled in the elegant Santa Maria del Priorato church. This miniature vantage point will give you perfectly aligned view of the Vatican. Coincidence, or tactic of the Knights Templar? You decide.

Modern Rome

Gather ‘round a plate of perfectly piped, orange-spiced Cannoli. Clink glasses of Trebbiano with like-minded travellers on a private verandah. Or, learn the secrets for yourself, from a real Italian grandmother. Whatever off-beat gourmet experience suits your palate, go for a custom tour from Italy Hotline.
