Depart Civitavecchia pier and head to Rome by motorcoach.
In the Eternal City, a panoramic drive takes you through the lovely Borghese Gardens and along Via Veneto – Rome’s famous, elegant and outrageously expensive shopping street. A slice of Roman life takes place among the fashionable sidewalk cafés, luxury shops and up-market hotels here.
Drive by the Colosseum and Circus Maximus immortalized in Ben Hur. This is where chariot races took place in Roman times.
You’ll also see Palatine Hill with the residence of Roman Emperors. Passing through St. Paul's Gate, watch for the Pyramid of Caius Cestius nearby.
Continue along the old Ostiense Way to St. Paul's Basilica, where you will have brief free time.
End your tour with a transfer to the airport.
This tour is only available to guests whose cruise ends in Civitavecchia and with flights departing after 3:00 PM (15:00).
If you have already purchased an airport transfer with your cruise booking, it will be refunded on board the ship, as this excursion automatically includes a transfer.
There will be a photo stop at St. Paul's Basilica, if local conditions allows.
