Join us for our Rome shore excursion to find out why we think it’s the most beautiful city in the world!

After a coach ride of 1 hour 30 minutes from the port of Civitavecchia, we arrive in the historical centre of Rome. The largest amphitheatre ever built, the Colosseum, is our first stop. The site of gladiatorial contests and mock sea battles, we’ll visit this iconic symbol of Imperial Rome from the square outside.

Opposite is the Arch of Constantine, a brilliantly detailed monument built to celebrate the victory of Constantine I over Maxentius in 312AD. The arch spans the road taken by emperors when they entered the city after a triumphant battle.

We then take Via dei Fori Imperiali, the straight road built by Mussolini that connects the Colosseum with Piazza Venezia. In this square, admire the Altare della Patria (the Altar of the Fatherland) built in honour of the first king of unified Italy, Victor Emmanuel. Next door is the Campidoglio (Capitoline Hill), one of the seven hills on which Rome is built, and the Theatre of Marcellus.

For the second part of our Rome shore excursion, we’ll visit the beautiful Trevi Fountain. Frolicking like Anita Ekberg in La Dolce Vita isn’t allowed but throwing a coin into the fountain is a must. Throw one coin to ensure your return to Rome, two for a new romance, or three for marriage.

Our walking tour continues in the luxury shopping district of Piazza di Spagna (optional). Then at Piazza della Rotonda, admire the feat of engineering that is the Pantheon.

At the nearby Piazza Navona we’ll have some free time to look around. There’s plenty to do here, pick up a souvenir from the shops in the square or rest a while at one of the bars or restaurants. This busy piazza is the perfect spot to people watch whilst enjoying an Italian lunch.

From Piazza Navona we’ll take the coach to St. Peter’s Basilica. There’ll be a short visit inside the church to admire the architecture of the structure and the treasures it holds. We’ll conclude the Rome shore excursion outside in St. Peter’s Square.
