With the advent of the digital technology, a travel agent should not have any problem at all in designing a customized package that allows visitors to see the best of Rome. As there is so much information out there, My Tours in Rome firmly believes that a good vacation package should respect the following requirements:
– Quality and Not Quantity is the Real Deal
A good package should be designed according to specific needs and demographics: for example, senior citizens should travel more by bus rather than on foot and groups should visit places of Rome that individuals normally do not see.
– Modularity and Flexibility
Traveling today has many facets and travel agents need to be very flexible. Sometimes, once in Rome, groups like to split and do their own things; some of the participants like to visit other places because they had gotten some information beforehand or because some locals helped them figuring out the places to see. My Tours in Rome has local representatives who can accommodate requests of other places to see once in Rome. Nothing is rigidly premade with us: you can always find your way around.
– Instilling Religious Rome as Part of the Tours
Rome has 625 churches and immense treasures are located in many of them. The phenomenon of Roman families who were able to afford expensive artists to embellish a family chapel is an achievement that made always the Romans very proud of their family ties. In some instances, it is recommended to plan a tour that includes stops in some of the small churches of Rome in order to help customers understand the dynamics of the art patronage throughout the centuries.
– So Many Museums but Which Ones?
Well, Rome has the possibility to accommodate the lovers for archaeology and the baroque experts. The Museum of the Roman Civilization is a fantastic learning tool that allows visitors to imagine how Rome was 2,000 years ago. Houses, aqueducts and stadiums are all displayed in a gigantic 3D physical reconstruction of the main city at the peak of the Roman Empire. For baroque lovers, on the other hand, the Borghese Gallery can offer unique and passionate moments of art appreciation. Mosaics and statues that belonged to the Cardinal Borghese say it all about the power that popes and rich aristrocrats had in Rome from the Renaissance to the Unification of Italy.
– A New Way to See Rome with the “Great Beauty”
Rome deserves an Oscar every day and the places recorded by the movie The Great Beauty testify of the Roman grandeur. The Colosseum seen at night during a party or in the day when a writer tries to get inspired before writing his next book are only some of the gems that Rome has to offer. The Eternal City is as such as it gives everybody the chance to meditate about our own destiny.
– Guiding People to the New Rome
Rome is in perennial transformation and refashioning. With the new project of the restoration of the Colosseum, the most popular icon of Rome will return to its original splendor two years from now. Every couple of months archaeologists are unveiling some of the cleaned arches and the monument really looks majestic and venerable after so many centuries of use and plundering.
As you know by now, Rome has more than enough for everybody, for its inhabitants who go to work every day and travel across its magnificence and for its travelers who can compare it with other Italian towns and realize how different was the civilization of Rome compared to the one in other towns of the Italian peninsula.
