Meet your driver-guide at your centrally located Rome hotel and hop into your private air-conditioned car for your sightseeing tour. As you set off, listen to interesting facts about Rome as a curtain raiser for what's ahead. During your tour, your driver will provide live commentary on the passing monuments and their history.
Relax into your seat and have your camera ready for the icons of the ‘Eternal City.’ Marvel at the imposing Colosseum as you hear about the gladiator battles once staged in the 1st-century arena, and pass by the site of the Circus Maximus, Rome’s chariot-racing circuit.
After time at Palatine Hill to take in views of the Roman Forum, once the city’s bustling commercial hub, stop at the magnificent Trevi Fountain. Legend says if you throw in a coin, you’ll return to Rome one day, so be sure to have some change!
Head for the Piazza di Spagna to view the Spanish Steps, and click photos of the Bernini-designed Barcaccia Fountain at their base. Enjoy a brief stop for refreshments (own expense), and then continue to the 2nd-century Pantheon. Admire its colonnaded facade and drive around Piazza Venezia, home of the vast Monument to Vittorio Emmanuele II.
End your 3.5-hour tour soaking up the city views from Janiculum Hill and then continue from here on to Civitavecchia. After a roughly 1.5-hour journey, arrive at Civitavecchia port in time to catch your cruise.
