Falco's Rome with Lindsey Davis
Rome is a city of monumental buildings, tall apartment blocks and narrow winding streets, relieved only by the occasional public spaces and kept moving by the great highways and a port of entry on the coast. This is modern Rome, but the words are just as true of the ancient metropolis, seat of empire and mistress of the world, from fog-bound northern Britain to the gritty Syrian Desert.
Such a city has a thousand stories hidden in its teeming streets and during this special tour we will be guided by Lindsey Davis, whose novels of the investigators Marcus Didius Falco and Flavia Albia have brought the city to life in all its glorious and nefarious splendour. Join us as we follow in Falco’s footsteps, visiting palaces, slums, ports and country estates as we trace the unforgettable tale of ancient Rome.
Just a quick note to say how much we have enjoyed the Andante Lindsey Davis trip to Rome (we returned last night). Oliver was a really outstanding guide, and we'd be grateful if you could pass on our thanks and appreciation. Lindsey was of course as wonderful as always! Overall we had a brilliant time.This was our first experience of Andante, and despite all the delays and upheavals, it has proved to be excellent. We shall certainly look at doing other trips with you. Guest Falcos Rome with Lindsey Davis , March 2022
