In the Company of Angels

A few days in Rome at the Casa per Ferie of the Sisters of the Order of St. Joseph of the Apparition overlooking the Vatican or at a hotel close to the Vatican

Eternal, infernal, exhausting but inexhaustible, Rome gives its visitors everything from catacombs and cathedrals to the Colosseum, from bridges and fountains to neck-breaking viewing of high-set statuary, and from a spiritual experience to designer shopping, pausing in parks, piazzas, and pavement cafés. This tailor-made tour shows you the history, heart, and soul of the city. With expert local guides, each day includes a morning walking tour, starting with a stroll or short bus ride from your accommodation, and ending in the city, to leave your afternoon at leisure for independent exploration.

Designed to suit your style and tempo, the tour offers two very different places to stay. The Starhotels Michelangelo is a modern hotel, with a bar and restaurant, positioned close to the Vatican; while the Casa per Ferie forms part of a convent, with a chapel, lounge, and garden, set on a hillside overlooking the Basilica, about a 15-minute walk away. Run by the Sisters of the Order of St. Joseph of the Apparition, this is a peaceful place, providing unpretentious comfort, with a low tariff. The choice is yours, and both offer the option of a two-night extended stay in the city.
