Full description
Head to Rome on a full-day guided panoramic tour of the Eternal City. You’ll be welcomed by your tour leader at the Civitavecchia port, where you’ll board a comfortable air-conditioned coach that will take you to one of the world’s most beautiful, artistic, and charming cities. The first stop is just a stone’s throw away from the Palazzaccio (Palace of Justice) in Piazza dei Tribunali. From here you can admire the most powerful and imposing castle ever built in Rome, Castel Sant’Angelo. Nearby you’ll marvel at magnificent St. Peter's Basilica from the top of Via della Conciliazione. Feast your eyes on the semi-circular colonnades that frame St. Peter's Square, designed and built by Bernini in the 17th century. Choose an optional tour of St. Peter's Basilica, with its Baroque and Renaissance facade that dominates the square and the skyline with its perfectly designed dome. Meet your tour leader at a designated point for the second part of the tour. You'll be driven on the bus for a panoramic ride along the streets near the Tiber, cross it near the Tiberine Island, see the Pyramid of Cestius, and the second largest Roman baths called the Baths of Caracalla. At the end of this amazing panoramic ride, you will stop in Via Petroselli, near the Theatre of Marcellus. When you reach the Capitoline Hill you'll see the beautiful Cordonata that leads to Piazza del Campidoglio. When you reach the Althar of the Fatherland, you will see the famous Via dei Fori Imperiali leading to the Coliseum. Then you'll be able to observe the Traian’s Forum, and continue to the Trevi Fountain where you can toss a coin into the water to ensure that you’ll return to Rome one day! Next on the itinerary is a break for a quick lunch or just an ice cream (gelato), if you prefer. Admire the incredibly well-preserved Pantheon, built as a temple with a massive dome. You may enter to see the tombs of Victor Emanuell II and Raphael. You’ll see Piazza Navona with the 4 Rivers Fountain by Bernini, before ending your visit to Rome and heading back to the Civitavecchia port.

Arrived from the cruise ship by shuttle bus the bus for the tour is in the same depot. The area was chaotic and we had to stand around waiting to find out what was happening. Coach trip is about an hour and a half with a short comfort break. The trip doesn't include any guided audio talk, you can upgrade to another tour. Extra cost for entrance to the Basilica with guide using the express line. You need cash as they don't take payment by card.

Very rewarding experience and most impressive service. Our guide, Patricia, was well versed in so many cultural and historical facts about Rome and it's people and artefacts. She was so informative and helpful and the skip the line made us feel privalaged. This really helped us to fit so much in when we had such a short time frame to meet up with our cruise ship. Highly, highly recommended

Bus trip to Athens

Excellent service and good value !, you need to be fairly active to go on this trip as lots of walking involved, we visited the Vatican, trevi fountain and the Colosseum, get the guided tour as the guide stays with you throughout the tour so no chance of missing your bus back to the cruise terminal , the bus leaves at 4pm prompt and takes about 1 hour depending on traffic .
