As you come across Capitolin Hill you will see steps designed by Michelangelo that helped make up a fortress held by the earliest Romans. You will then find yourself high above the Eternal City near the Lake of Albano where the canoeing and rowing events of the 1960 Summer Olympic Games took place. Here you will overlook the third-century Roman Amphitheatre and the Capuchin Church.
Following your time of relaxation away from the city life you will head to the town of Castelgandolfo which is covered in vineyards, forests and large vegetable groves. This summer home of the Pope is considered one of the most beautiful towns in all of Italy.
The last stop of your tour will be a journey through the Catacombs which make up a series of underground galleries and tombs. This holy site is where Christians buried their dead and came to both pray and celebrate. Some of the first documented Christian art can be seen scattered and the walls.
