About this Trip

This trip is rather special to us as it is the first of the Abeona Adventure Portfolio and has a treasured place in our hearts for many reasons.

Not only is Abeona known as ‘The Protectress’ of the City of Rome but everything feels wonderfully alive and vibrant here; from the city’s vast and enigmatic history to its culture, style and nobility that beautifully epitomize ‘La Dolce Vita’! It is a City blessed by Angels! A City that all Roads lead to!

Our Roman Holiday Adventure invites you to follow in the footsteps of the heroines of two major Hollywood movies from the past and the present day; both having helped to shape and change women’s lives in their own ways.

Choice of centrally located 3* or luxury 4* Hotels on a B&B basis, Champagne Reception, Vespa Tour, Electric Bike Tour, Private Tour of the Palazzo Colonna, all Evening Meals.

Itinerary

Day 1

Arrive at Rome Airport and transfer to our centrally located Hotel, and a Champagne Reception. In the evening we’ll head over to the Famous ‘Piazza Navona’ for our ‘Welcome to Rome’ Dinner. Here we’ll enjoy Bellinis together and begin our discussions about the true meaning of ‘La Dolce Vita’ here in the beautiful city of Rome.

Day 2

Full Day exploring the City of Rome with our resident ‘Rome in the Movies’ Expert; following in the footsteps of Audrey Hepburn and ‘Roman Holiday’, and Julia Robert’s character ‘Liz Gilbert’ in the more recent film ‘Eat, Pray, Love’.  We’ll visit many of the enigmatic sites that have provided the basis for stunning, cinematic scenes in both of these movies – including the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps, the Mouth of Truth, Colloseum and Forum Romana.

During the evening, we’ll dine at a beautiful restaurant close to the Pantheon and learn more about the lives of our characters in the films, and the self development they experience whilst in Rome.

Day 3

Explore and experience Rome with your very own ‘Gregory Peck’ and a Vintage Vespa [4 Hour Vespa Tour]. Our Vespa ‘train’ will wind through the streets of Rome; providing the opportunity to experience a very unique part of Rome’s culture just as Audrey Hepburn did in the film ‘Roman Holiday’. Other highlights will include the Aventine Hill with its beautiful medieval churches; the ‘Garden of Oranges’; the ‘Rose Garden’; the Englishman’s Cemetery; and the Pyramid of Cestius (yes, Rome has its own Pyramid)! During our stops en route, we’ll also enjoy some of the most classic Roman street food – such as supplì, a slice of pizza and / or a cappuccino.

In the afternoon there will be time to relax and enjoy the sunshine in a beautiful, outdoor café close to the Temple of Aesculapius, within the beautiful gardens of the Villa Borghese.

Dinner in a beautiful restaurant in the Travestere in the evening.

Day 4

‘Girls on Tour’ as we head off for a visit to the Italian movie set of Cinecitta Si Mostra – on Electric Bikes! Highlights along the way will include stops at St Peter’s Square [the heart of the Vatican City], the Castel Sant’Angelo with its beautiful ‘Bridge of Angels’, the Parco Della Caffarella and the Cinecitta Studios themselves.

Day 5

Private tour of the Palazzo Colonna – featured in the final scene of the film ‘Roman Holiday’ where Princess Ann gives her Interview to the press.

An afternoon of exploration and shopping in the Via Condotti, and coffee in the Babbington Tea Rooms.

Closing Dinner to celebrate a wonderful time in ‘The Eternal City’ at the restaurant featured in Eat, Pray, Love.
