If you are traveling to destination for the first time and you’re short on time, you expect to get the best from it as this is a once in a lifetime experience, and this is the most comprehensive and compact shore trip of the Eternal City. Perfect for first time visitors, we will visit the Vatican, Colosseum and historic center in one day, including the Trevi Fountain, the Pantheon and Navona Square.

After a 1 hour and half comfortable transfer from the port, meet your local guide in central Rome in the Vatican area and start your travel through eternity. Reach the ancient Rome’s heart and start your exploration with the Colosseum, one of the most impressive attractions in Rome. You will visit the Colosseum externally and your informative guide will tell you amazing stories of mock battles and animal fights, gladiators and powerful emperors. From here we will trace a path through the cobbled streets of the city to the superb Ancient Rome path.  You will then admire the Constantine Arch and a part of the Via Sacra leading and will earn Roman Emperors’ glorious past history, as you never would have guessed before.

Then head to Piazza Venezia and the Palatine Hill which are the gateway to one of the biggest archaeological parks in the world; Roman Forum and Palatine Hill were the political, administrative and religious center of imperial Rome.  

Then proceed to the recently restored Trevi Fountain, it will amaze you with its stunning baroque beauty: toss a coin in the water and wish to return back to Rome. Afterwards stroll the picturesque alleys and reach the Pantheon to visit its gorgeous interiors.

 

Before boarding back your bus to reach the Vatican, catch a glimpse of the dazzling Navona Square: its fine baroque fountains and its charming palaces overlooking the bustling square will enchant you.

The tour proceeds with the magnificent Saint Peter’s Square where can be admired the imposing Bernini colonnade and the amazing Basilica facade which is visited from outside. Listen to stories from your guide about the colonnade construction, the Popes, pilgrims and Renaissance art masters who have left their marks on this unique of its kind site and gaze at Michelangelo’s dome which dominates the Rome skyline.

Before parting ways your guide will suggest you where you can enjoy some free time in the area to shop souvenirs and relax. At 03:30 pm board your transfer back to the port of Civitavecchia; drop-off directly at the port entrance within 5.00 pm.
