Meals not included
Depart the airport and head to the Eternal City by motorcoach. In Rome a panoramic drive takes you through the lovely Borghese Gardens, then along Via Veneto -- Rome's famous, elegant and outrageously expensive shopping street -- with the most fashionable sidewalk cafés, luxury shops and up-market hotels.
Drive past the Colosseum (the most Roman of Imperial Monuments), the Circus Maximus (immortalized in Ben Hur, where chariot races took place during the Roman Empire), and Palatine Hill with the residence of Roman Emperors.
Pass through St Paul's Gate and watch for the Pyramid of Caius Cestius.
Continue on the old Ostiense Way to St Paul's Basilica where you will have 30 minutes of free time for an inside visit.
End your tour with a transfer to the ship.
