General

You will be greeted by your English-speaking tour drivers at the dock beside your cruise ship in Civitavecchia at around 7:30am

(suggested time) We will provide transportation in 4 private luxury Mercedes V Class “Limo van” vehicles. This is a perfect tour

for those who would like to see some of the major highlights of Rome as well as have in-depth visits of the Vatican Museum,

Sistine Chapel, and St. Peter’s Basilica. Once arrived in Rome, your first stop will be the Piazza Venezia, where you can take a

look at the Monument of Victor Emanuel (the first Italian king) and Mussolini’s balcony. Then if you wish, you will climb over

the Capitoline Hill (one of Rome’s seven hills) and have your breath taken away by an amazing view over the Roman Forum.

Next, you will drive to the Colosseum, and you will have the possibility to visit it inside or just admire this incredible

construction and walk outside of it. Following the Colosseum, you’ll drive to the Pantheòn and the famous Trevi Fountain via the

Aventine Hill (another of Rome’s seven hills). The Trevi Fountain will be followed by the Piazza di Spagna, or Spanish Steps,

where you will spend a short while before heading to the Borghese Gardens to see the panorama of Rome and the Vatican from the

Pincio Terrace. Your final stop of the morning will be the famous Piazza Navona, one of the most beautiful squares in Rome.

Originally built as a stadium in the first century for athletic contests and chariot races, Piazza Navona is lined with luxurious

cafes and Baroque palaces and is the home to three lavish fountains. It was laid out in the 15th century on the ruins of the stadium.

From 1650 to the late 19th century the square was sometimes flooded in summer and used for aquatic games and staged naval battles.

The square still retains its oval shape. The obelisk at the far end of the picture came from Egypt and was originally in the

Circus of Maxentius but later moved to Piazza Navona. The modern piazza is a lively place where both locals and tourists like

to hang out. Artists gather in the sqaure to paint and there are many entertainers and vendors selling souvenirs. At this point,

you will probably want to stop for lunch. Your drivers will present you the following options: a snack in Piazza Navona, some pizza

in the cafeteria of the Vatican Museums, or a typical lunch in a little neighborhood restaurant. After lunch, your private tour of the

Vatican city will begin, the moment you’ve been waiting for. Your guide will take you for a private 2 and half hours guided tour of the

Vatican museum, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica. You will start at the Vatican Museums; this is enormous,

and about 1,500 rooms, but you will only see the best parts on your way to the Sistine Chapel. Normally, this visit includes the

Cortile Della Pigna, Belvedere, Pio Clementino Museum, the Gallery of Candelabra, the Gallery of Tapestries and the Gallery of Maps.

Because of the way the traffic inside the museums is regulated, at some times, certain portions are closed off, so please note that

the itinerary can change from time to time. Of course, you will end at the Sistine Chapel! From the Sistine Chapel you’ll go directly

to St. Peter’s Basilica, where you will see the Pietà by Michelangelo and other fantastic masterpieces by Bernini and Canova.

After St. Peter’s, you’ll want to take some pictures of the square, shop for souvenirs and/or grab a drink. After such an exciting

and interesting day, you’ll enjoy a relaxing ride back to the pier. This tour length approximately 9 hours in total

and is conducted by English-speaking *tour drivers, and inside the Vatican Museum, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica,

by an official English-speaking guide (private guided tour). *Your tour drivers for ancient & renaissance Rome will not

places that require a visit and helping you access them.
