Travel around Rome pretending to act out a screenplay
Choose your role: do you prefer to be Audrey, or put on Gregory’s clothes?
In the end, if you think about it, it’s not that important that the character is perfectly interpreted if you have a Vespa and Roma that welcomes you with open arms.
Have you ever seen how white Trevi Fountain is? It nearly blinds you. And the Mouth of Truth…what do you say about that pinch of anxiety that assails you when you are about to put your hand inside? Isn’t it amazing to move through centuries, from marvel to marvel, with eyes that widen just a little more every time?
And in the end, in the gallery that the Colonna family had built, where the last scene of a legendary film was shot, you realize you aren’t squinting anymore but wide-eyed with disbelief.
“Roman Holiday” is a project conceived and created exclusively for the Japan Travel Bureau, one of the principal Japanese Tour Operators, and is a tourism package that covers the places from the film “Roman Holiday” with Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck, still even now a cult film in Japan.
In particular, the package includes a tour visiting the places shot in the film; among which the Bocca della Verità, Piazza di Spagna with the Scalinata di Trinità dei Monti, Castel Sant’Angelo, the Colosseo, the Fontana di Trevi and, the famous house in Via Margutta 51, in which the journalist played by Gregory Peck hosts the princess played by Audrey Hepburn.
The package also includes meals in some typical restaurants, but the best part of the tour is the spectacular Galleria of Palazzo Colonna, where the Japanese tourists can relive the final scene of the film, turning round in one of the most beautiful and evocative places in Rome.
– Joe: Which of the cities visited did Your Highness enjoy the most?
– Ann: Each in its own way was… unforgettable. It would be
difficult to… Rome; by all means, Rome.
I will cherish my visit here, in memory, as long as I live
