1. Rome: Museo Nazionale Romano and Terme di Diocleziano Tour
Take a half day guided tour in the outstanding Museo Nazionale Romano Palazzo Massimo and Terme di Diocleziano. In one morning you'll see so many famous art treasures away from the tourist crowds and city traffic. Stroll in an evergreen wood once belonging to the Thermal Baths of Diocletian — what's more, that huge courtyard was restored by Michelangelo! Your guide will show you lost statues from the imperial palace — such as Myron's Discobolus (Discus Thrower) and the Old Boxer, richly painted frescoes from the Garden Villa of Empress Livia, colorful mosaics and tombs of many sorts and kinds! At the end of the tour, get ready for some science and astronomy, as you will walk in the Basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli, housing a unique planetary sundial, built by 17th-century astronomers for the Pope to calculate the perfect sequence of day and night throughout the seasons. Enjoy the pleasure of walking in amazing quietness in front of first-class art pieces and let Rome show you its best treasures.
