During your excursion to Rome, you will always be in the company of a local expert, so that at no time will you be left alone.

The first stop of your day is the Colosseum, where you will skip the public lines to go straight inside and enjoy dazzling stories of gladiators, crazy emperors and mock sea battles - all of which make up part of the incredible 2000 year history of this famous monument!

 

From here you will go through the Roman Forum, the major city area of the Roman Republic where everything took centre stage - politics, state funerals, business, triumphal parades of the Roman Army and the place for passing the time for the general population.

 

Next stop is the Pantheon, another ancient building in Rome with some fascinating facts and an amazing history. Over 1800 years old, this building was never reinforced and has been transformed from a pagan temple into a stunning Christian Basilica.

 

Next you will travel to the Trevi Fountain - a world-famous Roman attraction , having made cameo appearances in several Italian and Hollywood movies. Here, your personal tour guide will let you in on a few secrets of the fountain not many visitors to Rome know.

 

It is a short stroll from the Trevi Fountain to the Spanish Steps, centre of the medieval Spanish district in Rome. From here we take you on the metro (underground) to the Vatican side of the city, where we will take a break for lunch.

 

Please note that lunch is not included in the tour fees, however our tour guides can recommend the best places to eat locally!

 

Following lunch, we'll head to the Vatican City, again with fast-track entrance so none of your valuable time is wasted. Starting with a quick tour of of the Vatican Museums, you'll learn the history of the most interesting statues and artwork that are on the pathway that takes us to the Sistine Chapel. Some of these you would normally bypass without taking much notice, but your expert guide will let you in on Vatican secrets that will make you look at it with a completely new appreciation.

 

The Sistine Chapel is the gem of the Vatican Museum complex, hosting the stunningly beautiful ceiling painted by Michelangelo 500 years ago. With astonishing new details revealed with recent restoration works, these frescoes are an absolute must-see while visiting Rome. When you gaze upon their intricate details, keep in mind their beauty took Michelangelo 4 years of grueling work to complete.

 

The final stop on your day tour of Rome will be St Peter's Basilica, the most ornate and largest church in Christianity. The Basilica is where newly-elected Popes are revealed to the public and where he addresses the public with special masses and celebrations throughout the year. Your private guide will take you to admire some of the most amazing statues and artworks in Rome during your visit here.

 

After exiting to St Peter's Square, you can admire the magnificent Dome and take plenty of photographs to help remember your day forever.

 

Your tour guide will then accompany you to meet up with you driver, who will take you back to your ship safely and on-time for your departure.
