Rome from Civitavecchia
Discover the unmissable sights of Rome, one of the most magnificent cities in Italy. Your tour departs from the tourist pier at the port of Civitavecchia.
After the hour-long trip from Civitavecchia to Rome, your first stop will give you the extraordinary opportunity to visit Italy's most popular attraction: the Vatican Museums. See some of the greatest artistic and religious treasures assembled here – including Michelangelo's unparalleled Sistine Chapel.
At this point, it will be time for a delicious lunch, which you'll enjoy in a traditional Roman osteria.
In the afternoon, you'll visit Rome's symbol, the Colosseum. The Colosseum is probably the most famous monument in the world. With its height of 48 meters (157 feet), the colossal elliptical structure has fascinated humans throughout history. Construction of the Colosseum was begun under Vespasian as a symbol of the grandeur of the Roman Empire and to satisfy the people's appetite for entertainment. It was inaugurated by Emperor Titus in the year 80 AD. The Colosseum could host up to 50,000 people, and the opening games lasted 3 months, involving about 2,000 gladiators and 9,000 animals.
Your final destination will be the Roman Forum. The Forum was the name the Romans gave to the central square of the urban settlement. It was the center of political, commercial, and judicial life in ancient Rome. The largest buildings were the basilicas, where legal affairs were addressed. The busy, crowded place was in many ways similar to the pulsing center of a modern city. Here the masses would flock to see the meetings of the orators, attend criminal trials, and discuss internal politics or the latest military campaigns, or quite simply to comment on the games or run races (an activity the Romans particularly enjoyed).
After this rich day, you'll be taken back to the tourist pier of Civitavecchia.
