Meet our English speaking driver at the cruise terminal at 8am. With comfortable and brand new cars/minivans you will have the possibility of being driven where big buses cannot go by law. In this way you will really see more, walk definitely less and enjoy it all!!
From there after 90 minute driving (depending on traffic) you will be in Rome, the Eternal City.
Remember that all our tours are flexible so it is very easy – if you already have places that you want to see – to agree with your driver which spots to be manly concentrated on.
Anyway what we normally do is driving you to the main spots in town. Getting first to the real heart of the city where you will be surely impressed by the outstanding white monument dedicated to the first King of Italy (Victor Emanuel II of Savoy’s Monument) the so called “Wedding Cake” because of its shape and its white colour, the tour will continue heading for the most ancient part of the city. Indeed after driven past the enchanting Roman and Imperial Forums it will be time for the visit to the Colosseum, the largest and most imposing amphitheatre ever built for entertainment purposes of the time. We are talking about the place that throughout the entire Roman History could gather more than 70.000 spectators at once to assist at the daily gladiator shows held on its arena. During this first part of the day there will be also time for the Trevi Fountain where to toss the famous coin that – according to the legend – will make you come back to Rome…and the Spanish Steps (main Roman shopping district) or the Pantheon (a great example of Roman temple, the famous and gigantic Temple dedicated to all the gods of the Olympus.
Given that you will not see the Vatican here the day will be completed with a visit to’ Piazza Navona, where you ll surely be amazed by Bernini’s Fountain of the Four Rivers. On top of this before heading back you ll for sue have the chance of visiting the Catacombs and the famous Appian Way.
At 03.45 pm. it will be almost time to go back to Civitavecchia to your cruise ship.
The tour normally ends at 5.00 pm at the pier.
