Upon leaving the Forum we will call at the Mamertinum Prison where St Peter and St.Paul spent their last days.
A short climb will take us to the Capitol Hill, the most famous of the Roman hills. The Rome Town Hall designed by Michelangello is the seat of Rome's major today. We will walk down the hill by the Tarpean Rock where the traitors of the Empire had been executed and reach the Theatre of Marcellus and the area of Jewish Ghetto. The views as we walk down are unique. With the domes of hundreds of churches at your feet you will understand why Rome is called the city of thousand churches and one synagogue We will stop for lunch in a tipical Roman trattoria and than continue to Piazza Argentina, the area where Giulis Cesar had been assassinated on the Ides of March 44 BC.

We will cross Tiber river by the Angel's Castle and walk to the entrance of the Vatican museums to start our Vatican walk. We will see the highlights of Vatican Collection among ancient statues, paintings, tapestries and visit Raphael Rooms. The Sistine Chapel will be the highlight of our visit. We will finally arrive at St Peter's Basilica to see Michelangelo's Pieta and to explore the Church and the crypt with the Papal tombs. Our day will end at St Peter's Square for the last of many Kodak moments before you return to your hotel for the well earned rest.
