Meet your guide and small group of up to 15 people on arrival at Civitavecchia Port around 9am. Traveling by comfortable minivan, relax on the around 1-hour journey to Rome, as your guide offers an overview of Rome’s fascinating history.
On arrival, set out on a bus tour of the city, making over 20 stops along the way to admire the city’s top attractions and take photos. Start at Vatican City, where you can hop out to walk around St. Peter’s Square, home to the Vatican Museums, St Peter’s Basilica, and Michelangelo’s magnificent Sistine Chapel.
Continue to Piazza Cavour and the Palace of Justice, followed by Piazza di Spagna, where you’ll find the famous Spanish Steps. Along the way, jump out to throw a coin into the Trevi Fountain, said to ensure you will return to Rome one day; browse the stalls at the Campo Di Fiori market; and stroll around the beautiful Borghese Gardens. You’ll also have chance to admire Ancient Roman ruins such as the Colosseum, the Roman Forum, and the Pantheon.
On return to Civitavecchia, your tour ends with drop-off at the port around 5.30pm, in time to re-board your cruise.
