"For the First Time"
With a Guide
You need to depart from North America on any
Monday with arrival in Rome on Tuesday, your touring will be Wednesday through
Saturday (includes one free day), with a Sunday departure, or you can add on one of our other cities.
Gabriele Chmelik heads our group of 4 local guides. They will provide you with 3 days
of touring that will show you all the major sights and still leave your ample time for a
day of shopping on your own. The guides will take you around Rome as if you were a
visiting friend. You will pay your own bus and metro fees as well as the inexpensive
entrance fees for the sights you visit (about $40 per person total).
This is a very intimate package. The maximum number of persons each week is limited to
8. With such a small group you will be able to maximize your experience with the guide.
Gabriele has developed a
very fine 4 day program for our interliners. Some have written that they have even gotten
to see the Pope very close up, and a few have been able to touch his hand as he passed.
On Wednesdays the Pope usually gives a public blessing at the Vatican. Gabriele tries to
get her group in the best position available. Sometimes the Pope then strolls through the
crowd and this is when our people have gotten to see him close up.

|"The Rome for the First Time tour and
Gabrielle (the guide) were excellent. The guide was knowledgeable,
efficient and always a caring companion. She always went beyond what was
expected to provide for our needs.
For our Papal audience in St. Peters
Square, we were 10 feet from the Pope's vehicle as it passed. The three
days of the tour were filled with activities, but we never felt rushed.
Gabrielle is a keeper! "
