Breakfast: Buffet at the hotel.

Morning: Coach to the Aventine Hill, the spot chosen by Remus, mythic founder of Rome, to set up his homestead. Take in a sweeping view of the city as you stroll the Orange Garden. The legend has it that in the 1200s St. Dominic brought orange seeds from Spain to a monastery on the Aventine Hill. Trees descending from the original still bloom and produce fruit in the quiet park. Short coach ride to the entrance of the Forum where the walk to the summit of the Palatine hill begins. The word "palatial" is related to the Palatine, because it is the place where wealthy leaders of Rome built their palaces. From the southern ledge (unless otherwise restricted), peer down to the Circus Maximus and over to the Aventine Hill. Descend and continue walking in the Roman Forum, the civic, religious and political hub of ancient Rome. The expert will build mental pictures of the walls now lacking from the foundations.

From the Sistine Chapel, the expert will lead the group through the back door down to the Basilica of St. Peter. In a side chapel, behind a protective glass, you can see the famous Pieta', Michelangelo's early work and only piece he signed.
