Sample Itinerary

Rome’s magnificent ruins, stone angels, and carved horses all bear the imprints of both past and folklore. The Vatican, a political entity and the centre of the Catholic Church, is located within its boundaries. A trip including the two “Eternal Cities” is both a cultural and religious pilgrimage.

Your trip could start with a personal tour of Rome from your stay at the opulent Holy Deer San Lorenzo City Lodge. Explore the Colosseum’s legendary passageways, go up to the Palatine Hill, and culminate your journey with traditional Italian cuisine at the Michelin AROMA restaurant.

The next stop is Vatican City, where you have exclusive access to the gardens of the Pontiff, the winding passageways, galleries bursting with historical artefacts, and, of course, the stunning Sistine Chapel. Your VIP access also includes an exclusive visit to The Cabinet of Masks, which is frequently not offered even on high-end tours. Historic mosaics that were relocated from Hadrian’s Villa at Tivoli are housed in this area together with a number of exquisite statues.

During your trip you can explore St. Peter’s Basilica, and visit the enormous Apostolic Palace, which serves as the Pope’s official residence.

Your Rome and Vatican City exploration will leave you spiritually energised and inspired.
