Your English tour driver will welcome you at your dock in Civitavecchia Port. As you get closer to the City, he will give you all the interesting information on the City while you’ll notice the presence of more and more historical sites as the Pyramid of Caius Cestius, the Circus Maximus, and the Palatine Hill.
Once in Rome you’ll explore sites such as the Colosseum (if you’d like to visit the Colosseum on the inside, we can arrange that! Book entrance tickets through us for an additional cost, upon request), the Capitoline Hill, the Amazing Pantheòn and of course, the Trevi Fountain. Toss a coin over your shoulder and into the fountain. Make a wish for good luck!
Last but not least, you’ll visit Saint Peter’s Basilica! One of the Holiest places on Earth! Admire its High Renaissance and baroque architecture.
With its greatness of art and golden details, marble and mosaics, the atmosphere is overwhelming. Be sure not to miss Michelangelo’s Pieta, completed when the master was only in his 20s.
After the tour, your tour driver will escort you back to your cruise ship.
