In the heart of Rome, located on the right bank of the Tiber River, on a quiet and peaceful street between the Spanish Steps (a 13 min. walk) and St. Peter’s Basilica (a 15 min. walk), Hotel Dei Mellini is the ideal starting point from which to explore the marvels of the ‘Eternal City’ and visit the center of commerce and business.

ACTIVITIES in ROME, ITALY

  • Private Rome Tour – Colosseum and City Highlights – with Skip the line tickets

Meet your driver in the lobby of your hotel and head to the Colosseum (Guided Tour and skip the line entrance.)  

After admiring the impeccably preserved Arch of Constantine, you will move on to the Coliseum. The grandest amphitheater in the world will amaze you! You will walk in the footsteps of Roman Emperors through the Roman Forum. Thanks to your guide’s explanations, you will be able to imagine their triumphal processions and public speeches.

The Arch of Titus will be the perfect introduction to the panoramic hill of The Palatine. The ancient legend says that Romulus founded Rome on this hill in 753 B.C. Following his actions, the Emperors built here their opulent homes. After this complete Ancient Rome tour, you will fully understand Ancient Roman life.

Stops:

    • Trevi Fountain is a secretive masterpiece, and perhaps the most spectacular fountain in Rome. Built at the end of one of the famed aqueducts that supplied the Roman empire with water, this iconic setting attracts many visitors. Toss a coin into its waters to ensure a safe return to Rome at some stage in the future.
    • Spanish Steps You will proceed to the Spanish Steps, one of the biggest tourist spots in the city. As you stand and admire the Church of Trinitàdei Monti, which sits at the top of a famous stairwell with the Fontana Della Barcaccia at its foot, you will wonder how they were ever able to complete it.
    • Pantheon A true masterpiece to admire on your tour of Rome: The Pantheon. Immaculately preserved and seemingly just a few centuries old, it isn’t easy to believe that the structure was finished in AD 128 by Emperor Hadrian. In the square in front – a gathering place for locals – discover a decorative 16th-century fountain sitting beneath the Egyptian obelisk. 
    • Piazza Navona No trip to Rome is complete without a visit to the Piazza Navona, one of the largest squares in the city. The space is incredibly popular among tourists for one primary reason: Bernini’s “Fountain of the Four Rivers.” Built to represent The Nile, The Ganges, The Danube, and Rio de la Plata, the structure now sits amidst the artists who arrive to peddle their wares on a daily basis.

Then the fun begins. With your English-speaking Italian chef, you will learn the techniques of kneading the all-important pizza dough, as Italians have been doing for two centuries. 

Start with the preparation of the dough, which will need some time to be ready. After it has risen you will be able to prepare your pizza by choosing amongst a variety of fresh ingredients such as salty Italian prosciutto or wonderfully fruity black olives. Decide if you want to keep things simple ‘Bianca’ without sauce, or add a rich tomato sauce for a pizza ‘Rosso’.

You will also learn how to prepare the perfect gelato. Gelato shops in Rome are amongst the best ones in the world.  Learn the secrets that made the fortune of this beautiful dessert. Once you go back home you will be able to live again all the beautiful sensations you felt here in Rome while you were having a walk near the Colosseum tasting fresh and sweet gelato.
