If you have questions regarding Marathon Tours & Travel's Rome Package please:
Rome, Italy is the ideal place to run a world-class event! There is no better way to see this magnificent city than on foot as the marathon route takes you through many classic and historic monuments, buildings and piazzas. As the appointed North America official agency, we are pleased to offer a four-night package with rooms at the beautifully-adorned Hotel Metropole. Within walking distance of the marathon start and finish, you will also find many Rome landmarks just a short walk from your doorstep. End your Italian getaway with a few nights in Florence, just 90 minutes north of Rome or let us know how we can tailor an extension just for you!
We visited the Vatican through the Roman Guy. Highly recommend. We were picked up from our hotel and brought directly to the meet-up location. Got into the Vatican promptly at 8 am. Our tour guide was friendly and extremely knowledgeable.
I liked the location - within walking distance to historical sites, and the start and finish line of the marathon. The area reminded me of some movies that I have seen that showcased Rome - felt like I was in a movie.
