If you have been following the media at all then you know the Pope recently made his first visit to the United States. And people are very excited. Pope Francis, who people have dubbed “The Dope Pope” has reined in an era of acceptance that the Catholic church has never seen. His cool demeanor, dedication to working towards a better more accepting Catholic church and his love by younger generation have given the Pope this nickname. Dope is a popular slang word for cool. Now not to get political, but the Pope is definitely making his mark on the youth of today, very millennial of him, and of course his mark on history. Like everyone else we definitely saw the Pope’s visit as a great way to advertise visiting his holiness’ home: Rome and of course Vatican city.
Consultant Connie has traveled to the eternal city many times here is what she has to say: “Rome where the ancient history comes alive in a bustling city. The food and wine are amazing. Select Italy has special tours or skip the line passes that you can order ahead to save time.”
Select Italy is a tour company that does everything from full travel itineraries to like Connie said skip the line passes. For first time travellers I always recommend a tour. It’s a great way to be able to get a lot in, in whatever amount of time you have in that city. Rome is full of history, art, culture, food, drink, shopping and much more. To have someone around that is trained in all these areas is a huge advantage. Plus when you tour the guides usually have great recommendations on restaurants, shopping and anything in between.
Rome is a history and art lovers dream. There are endless amount of museums like the Vatican, Sistine Chapel, Musei Capitolini, The Borghese Museum, and many other small museums. Walking around the city will provide you with a tour all its own. The amount of historical sights numbers more than you could ever imagine. From the Forums, Colosseum, Spanish steps, Parthenon, Trevi Fountain and much much more.
Although I suggested a tour, or the skip the line passes from Select Italy, we are always more than happy to customize anything you would like. Rome is a fascinating destination for all types of travelers and we are here to make the perfect vacation for you.
