Approximately 3¼ Hours
Meals not included
Depart Civitavecchia pier and head to Rome by motorcoach.
In the Eternal City, a panoramic drive takes you through the lovely Borghese Gardens and along Via Veneto -- Rome's famous, elegant and outrageously expensive shopping street. A slice of Roman life takes place among the fashionable sidewalk cafés, luxury shops and up-market hotels here.
Drive past the Colosseum and Circus Maximus, immortalized in Ben Hur. This is where chariot races took place in Roman times. You'll also see Palatine Hill with the residence of Roman Emperors.
Passing through St Paul's Gate, watch for the Pyramid of Caius Cestius nearby.
Continue along the old Ostiense Way to St Paul's Basilica, where you will have some free time for an inside visit. Finally, you’ll stop at a central location where you will leave the coach with your luggage and continue independently to your next destination.
Modest attire is required if you plan to enter any religious sites during your free time: knees, shoulders, and midriffs must be covered. Shorts are not allowed. Wear comfortable walking shoes.
