Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

From the comfort of your air-conditioned motorcoach, your scenic 90-minute drive from the port of Civitavecchia to Rome is resplendent with exciting sights as the Tyrrenian Sea gives way to the Eternal City. Once in Rome, your drive will take you past such landmarks as Castel S. Angelo, Circus Maximus and Arch of Constantine and the Colosseum.

A short stroll from the drop off point brings you to spectacular St. Peter's Basilica. With the largest interior of any Christian church in the world, St. Peter's Basilica holds 60,000 people and is regarded as one of the holiest and the greatest of all churches of Christendom. Michelangelo deserves much of the credit for the massive reconstruction, completed in 1626, and his famous "Pieta" masterpiece is one of the many heavenly Renaissance and Baroque sculptures and mosaics located inside.

Following your tour of the Basilica, you'll have free time to shop for souvenirs and marvel at the enormity of St. Peter's Square. With its fountains and semicircular colonnades crowned with statues of the saints, it perfectly frames the Basilica's entrance.
