Art, history, architecture, and shopping. Travelers who cruise to Rome will experience a seductive city that blends ancient attractions with modern delights.
Tucked along the banks of the Tiber River, this metropolis is split into nine district neighborhoods. You'll find the cruise port about an hour's drive from the citycenter in Civitavecchia.
Streets are lined with hundreds of restaurants, trattorias, and pizzerias. Not to mention some spectacular highend shopping. But of course, touring the enthralling historic sites is often the main attraction when in Rome. Be sure to put the iconic Colosseum at the top of your list and plan to spend at least two hours there.
Admire the exquisite Trevi Fountain before exploring the Spanish Steps or a few of the countless museums scattered throughout the city. Chances are, you probably won't be able to fit them all in a single excursion.
Another sight not be missed is Vatican City. Set behind a walled enclave within Rome, this is where you will find the stunning Sistine Chapel and a mesmerizing art collection.
