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 through Piazza Barberini, catching a view of the Triton Fountain, and past the remnants of the mighty Roman Empire -- the Forum, 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 30 minutes of 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.

Notes:

This tour is available only to guests whose cruise ends in Civitavecchia.
