Your stop is Gladiator School, where you'll not only get a fun introduction to ancient Roman history but also learn the essentials of fighting, gladiator style. Ever want to be a detective? You'll get your chance when you learn all about the "secret language" of the early Christian symbols found throughout the underground tunnels of the Catacombs; take a look at frescoes and inscriptions that reveal... Late afternoon, a light dinner at the hotel precedes our Tauck Bridges Exclusive - an after-hours, guided visit to the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel (subject to availability, day of your visit may vary). You'll see the Candelabra Gallery, Map Gallery and the Tapestries, as well as the Sistine Chapel - without the crowds. You won't be rushed, you won't have to maneuver through masses of people blocking your views, and you'll be able to take your time to contemplate the inspirational and artistic treasures. (B/D)

St. Peter's Basilica, The Pantheon & Time On Your Own

Your day begins with a visit to the Basilica of St. Peter and St. Peter's Square, accompanied by a local guide. A walking tour takes you to the Pantheon, Piazza Navona and Trevi Fountain, where legend has it that if you turn your back, throw a coin into the fountain and wish for it, you'll return to Rome some day. Have lunch today at a local restaurant and spend the rest of the day enjoying Rome, as you please, with your family. (B/L)

From Poignant Pompeii To Pizza Making In The Countryside

Travel first class from Rome to Naples aboard a high-speed train. Upon arrival, you're off to Pompeii, which was buried in the volcanic eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD - take a walk through the ancient streets with a local guide. Following lunch at a local restaurant, head to Sorrento for a three-night stay. Late afternoon, drive to Agriturismo La Galatea Farm to see how olives are pressed to make olive oil and how mozzarella cheese is made. A local expert teaches you how to make your own pizza for dinner, where you'll discover the magic of Neapolitan music and learn how to dance the energetic "Tarantella." Stay Three Nights: Hilton Sorrento Palace (B/L/D)

Positano, A Cruise And Paper Making On The Amazing Amalfi Coast

You're in for an exciting ride today as you drive along the Amalfi Coast - the road rises, falls, twists and turns like a roller coaster. In Positano, take a walking tour before boarding a private boat for a cruise to Amalfi. Spend some free time in the lovely medieval town of Amalfi with its labyrinth of winding streets; if you wish, learn all about the art of making paper on a visit to the Museum of Paper Making.
