Danyal and Buki present their favourite Roman sights in Italian, including the Roman Forum, the Vatican, the Trevi Fountain and the Appian Way. They also visit lesser known places that children enjoy; the place where Julius Caesar was killed, now a cat sanctuary, and one of the best ice cream shops in Rome. The tour is presented in Italian, and place names and key words appear on screen in Italian.

The clip could be used to introduce the activities of giving directions and describing places.

Small groups of students could be provided with simple maps of Rome and asked to locate some of the places mentioned in the clip. This could lead to students directing their peers to places on the map.
