Rome claims to be one of the greatest travel destinations of all time! It has everything you are looking for – food, romance, history, art and splendor. So no matter what you are looking for you, you are sure to find it.
The Tower of London is one of the world’s most famous fortresses and has seen service as royal palace, prison, armory and even a zoo. The ancient stones hold within them dark secrets, as fortified vaults shine with priceless jewels and historic uniformed Beefeaters stroll the grounds. Situated in Central London, just a stone’s throw from the River Thames, the Tower of London is one of the city’s premier attractions. A Thames river cruise is without doubt one of the best ways to see London, meandering through the heart of the city and past so many of its most famous attractions. See and experience the sights and splendor of this great city from the relaxed comfort of City Cruises modern, all-weather boats with open upper decks and spacious lower saloons with panoramic windows.
Just a short walk from the Thames, Westminster Abbey is a must-see and a significant structure in British history. This beautiful gothic church is a UNESCO World Heritage Site popular with many visitors to London. Complete with paintings, stained glass windows and other religious artefacts, Westminster Abbey owns the most important collection of monumental sculpture anywhere in Britain.
One of the world’s most famous Ferris wheels, the London Eye is also officially the United Kingdom’s most popular paid tourist attraction. The gigantic, 443-foot-high observation wheel was built to mark the millennium in 2000 and boasts a prime location on the Thames River waterfront, opposite Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament. In short, it’d be a mistake to skip the London Eye.
You can also take a Black History Walking Tour of London. Millions of people walk through London every day and have no idea of the centuries of African history under their feet and in front of their eyes. On this tour, we will expose the links between Africa, India and the Caribbean and explain how history was whitewashed and racism institutionalized.
For dinner you can take a dinner cruise along the River Thames. The Bateaux London provides a must-do dining cruise experience that combines fresh food, exclusive views of London and upbeat live entertainment to create one of London’s most unique experiences on the Thames.
The Grand Louvre is one of the most visited museums in the world. You can take a private tour to view the Black Images at the Louvre. Its permanent collections consist of antiquities from Rome, Etruria (Italy), Greece, the Near East, and Egypt; Islamic art; sculptures; decorative arts; graphic arts (prints and drawings); and, of course, paintings. However, few travelers realize that the Louvre’s collections contain magnificent works that depict Africans and persons of African descent.
Experience the best of Paris in a city tour that covers the top attractions in the City of Light. You can take a sightseeing tour of the city, relax on a Seine River cruise, and have lunch at the Eiffel Tower. After lunch, take in the incredible views from the second level of the iconic Eiffel Tower.
Upon arrival in Rome, you can take a city tour of the Vatican, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica and visit other famous landmarks like the Trevi Fountain, Piazza Navona, the Spanish Steps and the Pantheon. You will also visit the Colosseum, Roman Forum and the Archaeological Area. At the Roman Forum, you will see ancient ruins like the Temple of Julius Caesar. Once inside the Colosseum, you will learn about the bloody past of the Amphitheatre and its atmosphere. You will admire the splendid Arch of Constantine and climb up Palatine Hill.
Have you ever heard of the Footsteps of Paul Tour? You will visit Basilica of St. Paul Outside-the-Wall, Church of San Paolo alla Regola, Abbey (monastery) of the Three Fountains (Tre Fontane) to see the site of St. Paul’s martyrdom; and Mamertine Prison (Carcere Mamertino) where Paul and Peter were imprisoned.
