ROME'S TOP SQUARES: Coloseum, Square, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, Piazza Navona

Your Pre-Cruise Rome Tour will begin with a stop at Colosseum Square where you will have the opportunity to view this imposing 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.


Colosseum Pre-Cruise Rome Tour with Civitavecchia Transfer to Cruise Ship Excursion

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

Be sure to take a stroll towards the Arch of Constantine and view the Colosseum from different angles for picture-perfect photos.

  • NOTE: This tour does NOT include a visit inside the Colosseum due to limited time in Rome and difficulty in obtaining specific time slot tickets as they sell out fast. You will have the opportunity to view the Colosseum from the outside.


Your Pre-Cruise Rome Tour continues with a visit to 3 of Rome’s most fascinating squares that are among the most visited and recognized in films: Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps, and Piazza Navona.


Spanish Steps Morning Pre Cruise Rome Tour with Civitavecchia Transfer Service


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.


Morning Pre Cruise Rome Tour with Civitavecchia Transfer Service to Cruise Ship


The Spanish Steps feature the elegant 18th-century winding broad stairway that connects the square below to the French church of Trinita dei Monti above with the tall obelisk in front of it. Below is the square, you can admire 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.

Piazza Navona Morning Pre Cruise Rome Tour with Transfer to Civitavecchia Cruise Port

The lively Piazza Navona takes its oblong shape from the outline of the ruins of the ancient Roman Stadium of Emperor Domitian up which the square and its surrounding buildings are standing. The square is dominated by the intriguing Fountain of the Four Rivers by famous sculptor Lorenzo Bernini, topped by a tall obelisk.



Step into the vibrant atmosphere of Piazza della Rotonda, where the energy of the crowd electrifies the air.

As you stroll through this enchanting square, let the elegant facades of pastel-colored historical palazzi that embrace the square transport you back in time, evoking the rich history and architectural beauty of Rome. With their soft hues and intricate details, these palazzi create a picturesque backdrop, enhancing the charm and allure of Piazza della Rotonda.

Piazza della Rotonda Pre Cruise Rome Tour with transfer to Civitavecchia


The enchanting Fontana del Pantheon graces the center of the square. Under the guidance of Pope Clement XI, the fountain underwent its final transformation in 1711 and proudly graces a majestic pedestal. Its centerpiece, a striking Egyptian obelisk, once part of a magnificent pair from the Temple of Ra in Heliopolis, commands attention. Its twin counterpart can be discovered in the peaceful Piazza della Minerva, nestled behind the Pantheon.

Take a moment to marvel at the exterior grandeur of the awe-inspiring Pantheon, a colossal monument that dominates the square. Meander through the square and around the Pantheon, immersing yourself in the architectural beauty and indulging in delightful experiences that await: historical palazzi, charming shops, and the finest gelato in Rome from a nearby gelateria.

  • NOTE:  A visit inside the Pantheon is NOT included in the tour due to excessively long entry lines, even for visitors who have pre-booked tickets which are extremely difficult to obtain.


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.
