Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck have continuously graced Italian merchandise with photographs from scenes from their classic film Vacanze Romane, adding a romantic charm to the Eternal City. From the gelato on the Spanish Steps scene, to the scooter ride through Rome, they have taken the viewers through a virtual tour of Rome and its magnificence (and what it used to be like before it became a top travel destination for visitors!).
And with Stefano Rome Tours
you can see and experience the splendor of Rome on your own Roman Holiday
tour and shore excursion!
Vacanze Romane (Roman Holiday) the scooter ride through Rome
Although the fashion trends have changed since the days of Princess Anne and Joe Bradley, and the sites and monuments are no longer deprived of tourists, one thing continues to stay the same: the stage sets are still the way they were as in the film because they were filmed on the actual sites! The Colosseum is still the same as it used to be, the Spanish Steps haven’t changed either, visitors still place their hands inside the Mouth of Truth, and scooters still continue to zoom around the city’s narrow lanes and traffic congested roads.
Want to see the famous address Via Margutta, 51 that was the address of Joe Bradley’s bachelor pad? It still exists in one of Rome’s most charming neighborhoods and we will show it to you!
Would you like to know what famous Palace played the role of the Embassy of the country of Princess Anne? We’ll take you there AND you will have the opportunity to stand in the spot where Joe Bradley watched Princess Anne disappear around the corner when they said their last goodbyes.
You can’t say the same about many movies filmed that were filmed 60 years ago where the architectural landscape of many cities has since been greatly transformed.
