FULL DESCRIPTION

On this tour you will be guided through the Heart of Rome, to enjoy the Eternal City at its best, along with a visit to the Vatican Museums. You will be assisted by our knowledgeable English-speaking driver, who will tell you stories and anecdotes about the city. Generally, we start the tour at 8.00 am, with pick-up right at the quayside, so you will find us immediately as you get off the ship. After a comfortable drive to Rome, we start exploring the city highlights: the Roman Forum, the Colosseum, the Church of St. Peter’s in Chains, where Michelangelo’s Moses is kept, the Circus Maximus, the world-famous keyhole view from the Aventine Hill, the breathtaking views of the Capitoline Hill, the Trevi Fountain where you may throw a coin as a promise to return to Rome, the Pantheon and its mysterious architecture, and Piazza Navona, the most attractive Roman square, with its colorful street artists. After a brief stop for a typical Roman lunch, we continue with a visit to the Vatican Museums, including the Sistine Chapel and the Raphael Rooms, St. Peter’s Basilica (with Michelangelo’s famous Pietà sculpture), the Papal Crypt, and St. Peter’s Square. After that, around 4:30 pm, we head back to the port in time for you to get back to the ship. The driver will not accompany you inside the monuments and museums, but will give you all the information and historical background for you to make your own visit. For the visit to the Vatican Museums, we suggest you hire one of our licensed city guides.
