Best highlights of Rome. From November through February light lunch included!!
Rome is like red wine: you open the bottle and then you have to smell the different nuances of its grapes, give a little sip, then a bigger one to enjoy it to the end. Thousands and thousands of years of dominance over most of the known world: how was it possible? Of course the geographic position was fundamental. Howeher, neither geography nor the military power cannot be the only factors. There could not have been so much respect without the deep sense of Sacrality that Rome inspired: the Romans, and the non-Romans as well, deemed that Rome had been founded because of the will of the main pagan Gods, that's why from the Gaul invasion of 390 BC, they remained outside the city walls. The so called Barbarians attacked and sacked Rome but still they maintained a sense of respect for what meanwhile became the center of Christianity. In the following centuries most of the city was abandoned, and, like a sleeping beauty, little by little layers of dust covered everything. Let's discover it together
I'll come meet you by Civitavecchia Cruises Shuttle Terminal (ask me how to get there, very easy!). Try to disembark among first passengers, before Cruise Shuttles get full! In about one hour train raid we'll be in Rome. No better way to discover Rome and the Romans then walking, using public transportation (ask about B. I. R. G. Tickets) or taxis (not included). We are going to see the Aurelian walls, the Circus Maximus, the Palatine and Aventine Hills, The Colosseum (outside), the Roman Forum, the Capitol Hill, Piazza Venezia (where we'll see the Victor Emanuel and the Unknown Soldier Memorials, Mussolini's Balcony, Napoleone Bonaparte's Palace), the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps, the Pantheon (inside), Piazza Navona and the Vatican (St' Peter's Basilica, outside or, time permitting, inside). If guests like we can plan the visit of the Vatican Museums (Sistine Chapel). Skiptheline tickets available but not included. Return to hotel or ship on their own.

Highly recommend this incredible tour with Sergio. Sergio met us by the cruise shuttle terminal in Civitavecchia and took us to see all the highlights in Rome and the Vatican, providing history and insightful commentary in a clear and understandable way. He also tailored the tour to add some spots we wanted to see. We will definitely be looking up Sergio next time we are in Italy! Grazie mille, Sergio!
