Shore excursions Rome - Glimpse the bygone glories of ancient Rome on this full-day excursion by air-conditioned vehicle.
After disembarking the ship, proceed along the highway for approximately one and a half hours to Rome and the Vatican City. Driving into the historical center of Rome, you will pass by and admire the Pyramid of Caius Cestius, the ruins of Caracalla Baths, the Capitol and Piazza Venezia, the city's center square. The Colosseum dates back to 80 AD and is perhaps the greatest and most famous of the city's monuments.
In the past centuries, about 50,000 spectators sat here spellbound as gladiators locked in fights and wild beasts were slained. The horror and fascination of it all springs to life as you explore these ruins. You will pause at a vantage point overlooking the Forum where numerous foundations, columns and arches have survived the religious, civil and commercial hub of imperial Rome.
Continue your tour by tossing a coin in the Trevi Fountain famous in the movie " A Roman Holiday". Then drive by the Spanish Steps, Pantheon and Piazza Navona designed by Bernini. Religious and artistic highlights abound during your walk through the Vatican. Gaze in awe at the symmetry of the Piazza San Pietro and the enormity of St. Peters, the worlds largest church. Then time permitting, enter the Sistine Chapel and marvel at Michelangelos awe-inspiring painted ceiling. In the late afternoon scenic drive back to the pier.
