Your Pre-Cruise Rome Tour will begin with a visit to the famous Colosseum where you will have the opportunity to explore this once famous 1st century AD Ancient Roman amphitheater that at its peak entertained up to 50,000 spectators for 4 centuries with gladiatorial games, mock sea battles, beast hunts, public executions, and theatrical plays.

 

What remains today is an iconic symbol of Ancient Rome’s engineering advancements that continues to inspire modern day sports stadiums.

Spanish Steps (Piazza di Spagna) Rome

ROME'S FAMOUS SQUARES

.

You will also visit 2 of Rome’s most fascinating squares that are among the most visited and recognized in films: Trevi Fountain and the Spanish Steps.

 

The Trevi Fountain is the most famous fountain in Rome, with thousands of hopeful visitors tossing a coin to ensure a return to Rome. The fountain has been featured in popular classic films such as La Dolce Vita and 3 Coins in A Fountain and is one of the most recognizable sites in Rome.

 

The Spanish Steps features the elegant 18th century winding broad stairway that connects the the square below to the French church of Trinita dei Monti above with the tall obelisk in front of it. Below in the square, you can admire the the lovely “Fontana della Barcaccio” or “The Fountain of the Old Boat”, created by Pietro Bernini, the father of Gian Lorenzo Bernini.

.

During the hot summer months you will see a gathering of people around the fountain, many filling their water bottles with the fresh water that flows through it.

.

The Pantheon (Rome)

.

THE PANTHEON

.

Not to be missed is the Pantheon, the best preserved of all ancient Roman buildings, and the oldest standing domed structure in Rome as well as in continuous use throughout its history. The ancient temple was in 6th century converted into a church and burial place for Italy’s most illustrious figures including King Umberto I and Queen Margherita, King Vittorio Emanuele II, and the famous Renaissance painter Raphael.

 .

When you look up to the center of the coffered dome, you’ll see the oculus (in Latin for ‘eye’) that has always been open to the elements of nature, allowing both sunshine and rain to enter.

.

Rome from the distance (Rome in A Day Tour)

 .

What better way to say “Arrivederci Roma” than to treat yourself to a splendid panorama of the Eternal City from the terrace square of Janiculum Hill.  

.

Beautifully sprawled before you lies centuries of history unfolding from church domes to rooftops to monuments ancient and new peering above the buildings around them.

 .

From here you will depart for Civitavecchia and sail on your cruise!
