Classics 2024 Rome Trip Deposit

Colosseum at night



For the Autumn Trip to Rome in 2024, we are asking an initial deposit of £130 to sign up.
This is non-refundable deposit.
If you can’t make the trip and someone else comes forward to take your spot, you may transfer your deposit/place to them.


Detailed Description

Join us on campus for a transfer to Gatwick on 9th September, arriving into Rome in the middle of the day, where we will head straight to the British School at Rome, our home for the next five days. From there, our (draft) itinerary looks as follows:


Monday 9th September (afternoon): Campus Martius tour. Pantheon, Largo Argentina, the Theatre of Pompey, Augustus’ Mausoleum, the Ara Pacis, and a gelato break.


Tuesday 10th September: Forum Romanum, Colosseum, Palatine, Church of Santa Sabina.


Wednesday 11th September: Vatican and its Museums, including the Prima Porta, Laocoon, and the Sistine Chapel.


Thursday 12th September: Ostia. A trip to Rome’s ancient port town with a stop on the way to see a Pyramid.


Friday 13th September: Capitoline Museums, Imperial Fora, and leftover sites across the Campus Martius


Saturday 14th September: Palazzo Massimo museum and a transfer back to the airport from Termini station, returning to Gatwick at 2015. Transfer back to Reading, just in time to start the new year.
