THE BEST PART OF TRAVELLING

       Tours and Activities: the tourism industry has been calling them an-
       cillaries since forever but, we believe, they truly are the best part of
       travelling.

       And the latest trends and stats prove us right.

       T&A is currently the third-largest travel segment, ranking right af-
       ter flights and hotels and accounting for 10% of global travel reve-
       nue: according to the latest surveys, more than 95% of all travellers
       booked an organized tour, visited a museum or reached one specif-
       ic attraction.

       Among these travellers, a good 50% purchases T&A once they reach
       the chosen destination: letting them know the advantages of book-
       ing in advance (e.g. a decreased risk of scams, proper information,
       reliable customer support and so on) can at the same time improve
       travel quality while extending the traveller’s length of stay.

       Offering activities can result in a win-win situation and represents a
       good chance for up- and cross-selling, both for travel agencies and
       tour operators.

       In the following pages, you’ll find the largest T&A offer available in
       Rome: prime tours, low-budget services, visits to all the main tour-
       istic attractions at different prices and times of the day, experiences
       created for those who already know the city, guided or independent
       day-trips to Italy’s best destinations for arts and culture.

       Because Tours and Activities are, to us, anything but ancillaries.

                                                                                     rrani Tours

Vatican Museums
Rome has so much to offer: the amazing Piazzas, the stun-                            PRIME
ning fountains, the churches, and the archaeological areas.
With such a vast amount of interesting things to do and plac-
es to see, saving time is crucial. To see the Vatican Museums
without waiting in line for hours (yes, the lines can be hours
long!) choose our prime ticket access service: it’s available
in the morning and in the afternoon, to satisfy both the ear-
ly birds and the nightlife lovers, and allows you to skip the
queue. Reach our meeting point and let us spoil you: we in-
cluded a welcome lounge service with free Wi-Fi, a com-
plimentary bottle of mineral water and an espresso coffee.
Access the Vatican Museums through our exclusive official
partners’ entrance and, once inside, feel free to explore on
your own any of the fifty-four galleries. The ancient art offer
is huge: Roman and Greek statues, a vast Etruscan collection,
lots of artifacts from Ancient Egypt and an incredible pic-
ture gallery: the Pinacoteca Vaticana includes works by art
geniuses like Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Caravaggio,
Raphael, and Giotto. If contemporary and modern art is your
thing, head to the Modern Religious Art collection, housing
paintings and sculptures from Carlo Carrà, Giorgio de Chiri-
co, Vincent van Gogh, Paul Gauguin, Marc Chagall, Paul Klee,
Salvador Dalí, or Pablo Picasso. And swing by the Raphael
Rooms and by the Sistine Chapel, two of the most popular
attractions inside the Museums.

Luxury dinner with superior
wine pairings in the
Pantheon area
Spoil yourself after a long, busy day spent around Rome
sightseeing: have dinner in a group of fewer than 10 peo-
ple in a stunning, exclusive location in the Pantheon area.
Our trusted local gourmand will be your guide for this indul-
gent evening: find them at our meeting point in Piazza Della
Minerva and reach the elegant, family-run restaurant that
we reserved for you, where the owners will greet you with
a smile and their typical Italian style. This surprising place
doesn’t only offer delicious food in a stunning location: it
also owns a prestigious historical wine cellar, built during an-
cient times and discovered during the renovation works of
the palazzo. It was only on this occasion that a majestic Ro-
man structure was identified at the cellar floor: entirely made
of squared blocks and incorporated in the sixteenth-century
building that lays right above. Our aperitivo will be here, on
the cellar floor: a glass of sparkling prosecco wine, paired
with a platter of traditional cured meats and cheeses from
different Italian regions, just to whet your appetite. Afterward,
you’ll move on to the actual dinner: a traditional dish of pac-
cheri pasta with cacio e pepe sauce, followed by beef or fish
course and a side of cheese and vegetables. Every dish will
be, obviously, paired with a glass of superior wine carefully
selected by the restaurant’s sommelier, and the dinner will
end with a selection of desserts: an immersive experience
in Italian food history and culture that you won’t forget.
