Departure Date: 24/10/2018
Visit the best of two cosmopolitan cities of London and Rome and explore the sights. Take adantage of the 48 Hour Hop-on Hop-off bus and Skip the Line for fast track entry into the Colosseum, Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel. Spend 3 nights at the Inn at the Spanish Steps which is one of Rome's best-kept secrets. As a member of ‘The Small Luxury Hotels of the World’ this stylish, boutique hotel is uniquely located on Rome's famed shopping street near Spanish Steps and famous monuments such as the Pantheon and the Trevi Fountain.
Listed as a national monument, this stately townhouse dates back to the eighteenth century and was once the home of Hans Christian Andersen. Boasting views of the Spanish Steps and with a private butler and limousine service, you really will feel like you just
stepped into a fairytale of your own.
Be sure not to miss the flower-filled rooftop terrace too – it’s the perfect retreat for enjoying a sumptuous breakfast buffet or sipping
cocktails as the sun sets across the rooftops and domes of Rome’s historic centre.
The Inn at the Spanish Steps is set on the Via dei Condotti with its exclusive boutiques showcasing all the latest trends. However, walk in the other direction and you’ll journey back into Rome’s past, stroll up the Spanish Steps to the Trinita dei Monti church, or throw a penny and make a wish at the Trevi Fountain. Ancient treasures such
as the Pantheon and the Roman Forum are also close by.
Discover Rome at your own pace with a combined 48-hour ticket hop-on hop-off sightseeing bus, and a skip-the-line entrance ticket to the Vatican Museums in the Vatican City, as well as the imperial sites of the Colosseum, Forum, and Palatine Hill. Explore Rome at your own pace with a 48-hour hop-on, hop-off open top
bus tour. The tour also includes a skip-the-line entrance ticket to the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel plus the Imperial remains of the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill.
Your skip the line access to the Vatican Museums means more time exploring the world's most comprehensive collection of art, and less time waiting in the famously long lines. Once inside, wander through the galleries at your own pace, and see masterpieces of art by Michelangelo, Raphael, and more.
With your skip-the-line Colosseum Ticket you can explore the ruins of Ancient Rome. Stroll around the circumference of this famous structure to understand what it was like when the crowds roared and gladiators fought for their lives.
Afterwards, walk along the Sacred Way of the Roman Forum, where festivals and triumphal processions took place. See the very sight where the body of Julius Caesar was cremated, the Arch of Titus, the Temple of the Vestal Virgins and the Senate House.
With a Double Decker Tour Ticket you can hop-on and hop-off the buses at any of the stops throughout Rome, giving you the freedom and flexibility to explore, sightsee or visit attractions before boarding the next bus to continue your tour. Your ticket is valid for 48 hours and includes two routes.
From the Trevi fountain to the Colosseum, Rome's abundant sights rival those of any other city on the planet, in terms of their beauty, historical importance and ability to simply take your breath away.
Whether your interests lie in antiquity, architecture, cuisine, culture, religion, shopping or sport, Rome has something to suit all tastes. Stroll through the Pantheon, marvel at Michelangelo's Piazza del Campidoglio and admire the Swiss Guardsmen of Vatican City.
Try a 'proper' spaghetti alla Carbonara near the Spanish Steps or sit back with a coffee and people-watch in Piazza Navona. Alternatively, if you fancy a break from Rome sightseeing, act like a local and take in a Lazio or Roma match at the Olympic Stadium.
Spend 4 nights at the 4 Star Roseate House London which is located a 5 minute walk away from Hyde Park and Paddington Station. The distance to Oxford Street is 4 km. Other nearby landmarks are Hyde Park 0.9 km, Buckingham Palace 2.8 km, Trafalgar Square 3.4 km and London Eye 4.1 km away.

Take a seat and get ready to explore a fascinating city without having to endure the hassles of big crowds. On this tour you can enjoy a free boat trip on the river, from Westminster Pier to St. Katherine's Pier or from St. Katherine's Pier to Westminster Pier (one way).
