Approximately 10 Hours
Meals not included
Transfer from the pier to the rail station and hop aboard an exclusive rail car. This classic adventure offers a ride in comfort through the Italian countryside and across the Etruscan Region. You’ll arrive in Rome at St Peter’s Station just 60 minutes later. The train escort will brief you about the local attractions and when to be back at the meeting place.
Set out on your own to discover independently magnificent St Peter’s Square with its central obelisk, refreshing twin fountains and Bernini’s legendary semicircular colonnades crowned with statues of the saints. This striking piazza frames the entrance to St Peter’s Basilica, which you will have time to explore if you wish, or just browse in the square’s shops at your leisure.
You’ll feel like a local as you wander through the bustling city streets, sampling local cuisine and checking out the boutiques. Sip a cappuccino at a trattoria or savor a refreshing gelato from a street vendor (at your own expense) before shopping for souvenirs and exquisite leather goods. Photo opportunities abound -- around every corner you’ll find historic monuments.
The Roman Forum, the Colosseum and the Arch of Constantine are not far away. A city map will be provided and public transportation in Rome is readily available.
Meet your escort at the designated place for the relaxing ride back to port. Views of the imposing St Peter’s dome offer a fond farewell as you leave the Eternal City with memories that will last a lifetime.
You will need local currency (euros) for attractions, meals and shopping.
