My Road Leads Back to Rome…

Spacer-LaDolceVita

I was in Rome in spring and feel very fortunate (and very excited) to be returning again this fall.

If you read my previous post, you know that I’ll be in Puglia again…then I hope you will follow along as I revisit the Eternal City, Roma!

In spring I did a lot of walking and exploring, but, along with my incredible 5 Star Day with Baglioni Hotels , the highlights were my guided tours with Walks of Italy and Through Eternity!

I’m a firm believer in investing in quality tours. I did a lot of research to find the tours that offered what I wanted to see/do and were available on the dates I would be there. It had been a LONG time since I had been to Rome and I had never invested in tours…this time it was different and I’m so glad I did invest (and implore you to do the same!).

With Through Eternity, Caterina took us on a 4+ hour fascinating tour of the Sistine Chapel (with early entry–do it!), the Vatican Museum and St. Peters. So enriching and interesting…phenomenal!

On another day, I joined Walks of Italy for a tour of Ancient Rome including the Forum and the Colosseum with special access to the hypogeum and 3rd tier. This tour, with Jon, was equally fascinating and informative.

You can read guide books and study all about it (and I do!) but the real icing on the cake is to then take a tour and be walked through these sites with knowledgeable experts…fabulous!Spacer-LaDolceVitaSO, with that in mind, I am very VERY excited to be taking four (4) amazing tours in October!

As the guest, I will be enjoying, taking zillions of photos and sharing all about them during and after. Here’s what I will be doing!Victoria ebook wine & gelato

One Response to My Road Leads Back to Rome…

  1. OMG…if only…as I mentioned, we are not scheduled for our Return to Roma until next September…and I can only hope you will be there at that time so we can join in some of these tours! We are watching all sort of television programmes about Rome just to keep us from feeling sad that we won’t be there for a year!
