Bend it Like Baroque
Ease into your Roman holiday with a private tour of Rome’s historic Baroque center, the Piazza del Popolo. Once known as the first view of Rome a traveler had, this public square is home to the famous, architecturally gorgeous church of Santa Maria del Popolo.
Feel Like a Gladiator
While Scandal may have given rise to some of the modern uses of the word, gladiators reigned here at the Colosseum long before Olivia Pope came into the world. Step into this historic center that once accommodated over 50,000 spectators and leave some of your Black girl magic while you’re there.
Live La Dolce Vita
Don your finest wears at an evening photo shoot at some of the most iconic Roman landmarks including the Spanish Steps, the Roman Forum and the Pincio Terrace. Pose in a vintage car and pretend like you’re Sophia Loren.
Refresh Your Black Girl Magic
Fill up your cup and ease the tension in your mind and muscles with a hot dip into the thermal, sulfurous waters of the Acque Albule spring, known for its deeply anti-inflammatory powers. Between whirlpools, saunas, Turkish baths and even massaging water jets, you’ll forget that it’s not all a dream.
Be a Master Chef
Gelato and pizza back home will never be the same after you learn to master the most delicious of Italian arts. From making paper-thin yeast dough to preparing zesty tomato sauce to making gelato by hand, you’ll find yourself licking your fingers more than once.
Now, we’d list everything … but we don’t want to spoil all the fun.
