Welcome to the most famous, feared, powerful (and playful) city ever known. Over the centuries, Rome has been the capital of empires, the heart and soul of a great religion, and the one town where a doe-eyed princess could party all night long with Gregory Peck.

A week in Rome is the closest thing to time travel; from the ancient Forum, Colosseum and Pantheon, to the Renaissance Vatican, to the kids on Vespas looking for good places to neck. You’ll marvel at St. Peter’s Basilica and witness Michelangelo’s timeless genius in the Sistine Chapel.

When it’s time to relax, your meals will be delightfully local-style, with hospitality as warm as the moonlit nights.

To help make sense of it all, you’ll have one of Rick Steves’ most experienced guides, and a small group of twenty.

Each night you’ll sleep in the comfort of a three-star hotel in the heart of the city, with the option of a single supplement (while they last).

Check out the itinerary below…and let's go Rome'n!

How you'll experience the Best of Rome in 7 Days:

Sunday: Arrive in Rome — We'll get together for introductions around 3 p.m., take a walk through the neighborhood, and have a city orientation, followed by dinner together. Walking: moderate.

Monday: Rome's Many Layers — This morning we'll focus on the Pantheon (ancient Rome's best-preserved interior), Santa Maria Sopra Minerva (Rome's only Gothic church), and the Baroque church of St. Ignazio. We'll disperse for lunch and then tour the heart and soul of ancient Rome: the Colosseum and Forum. If you are still ready for more, the Palatine ruins or Capitoline museums are nearby or you can simply relax at a coffee bar. Dinner is on your own. Walking: strenuous.

Tuesday: Catholic Rome — We'll spend much of the day on the other side of the river Tiber, where the Vatican City beckons. We'll see the treasures of the Vatican Museum, including the sublime Sistine Chapel, and then enjoy lunch together. You'll have a free afternoon before we meet in the early evening for dinner and a La Dolce Vita stroll, stopping to enjoy the magical Trevi Fountain, Campo de' Fiori, and the Piazza Navona. Walking: strenuous.

Wednesday: St Peter's — We'll visit the awe-inspiring St. Peter's Basilica, with Michelangelo's moving Pieta and Bernini's amazing, seven-story bronze canopy. You'll have free time to explore the crypt or climb the dome for a fantastic vista. On our way to lunch we'll stop and enjoy a beautiful vista over Rome, the perfect place for a group picture, before being treated to a cooking demonstration as well as lunch. After lunch the afternoon is yours to enjoy. Dinner on your own. Walking: moderate.

Thursday: Day Trip to Ostia Antica — Today we'll gain a new perspective on this ancient city. We'll tour Ostia Antica, the ancient Mediterranean seaport and enjoy lunch together by the sea, before returning to the city along the historic Appian Way. Dinner on your own. Walking: moderate.

Friday: Borghese Gallery — We'll begin with a visit to the Borghese Gallery, filled with Bernini's beautifully-Baroque sculpture and other masterpieces. Then you'll have the afternoon free to spend in the surrounding park, ramble through more ruins, or do some shopping. Tonight we'll meet for our own "Last Supper" and toast this magnificent city. Salute! Walking: moderate.

Saturday: Tour over after breakfast — This morning we'll say our final farewells and head for home or further adventures in Italia. Arrivederci, Roma!
