The Eternal city is a myriad of history and culture, much of which is reflected in its amazing architectural and artistic masterpieces located throughout. But there is also so much to be learned by simply exploring the different nieghborhoods throughout this incredible city.
This tour brings you to the oldest Jewish community in Europe, with a visit to the neighborhood formally referred to as Rome's Jewish Ghetto. Abolished in 1882, it was originally established in 1555 to segregate Jewish residents, which was accomplished by constructing walls around the neighborhood in the historic city centre. Despite its tragic past, the Jewish Ghetto is one of the the most beautiful areas in present day Rome.
Discover the history and culture of this area with a visit to the 19th century synagogue, which is also home to the Jewish Museum of Rome, or indulge in some of the best cuisine with a stop in one of the many kosher restaurants or local markets. See the Fontane delle Tartarughe, la Bocca della Verità
Complete your day with a visit to the iconic Colosseum. See the largest amphitheatre built during its time, with the capacity to hold 50,000-80,000 guests. Initially home to ancient gladiator events, public spectacles, animal hunts, executions, battle re-enactments and more, it saw an end to entertainment events in the medieval era. Now considered one of the new 7 Wonders of the World, the Flavian Amphitheatre as it was originally named, is a must see during your time in Rome. The historical value of this visit can be appreciated on your own, or enhanced by the accompaniment of a private, professionally licensed guide (extra service available at checkout).
What should I wear for this tour?
We suggest that you wear comfortable walking shoes as there is quite a bit of walking involved on uneven surfaces.
What happens if our cruise ship is unable to dock at the originally designated port?
If the cruise ship doesn't dock due to any circumstance out of your control, you will not be charged and we will try to re-schedule your service according to availability. If your cruise ship docks in a different port, for example Naples Port instead of Sorrento Port, we will change the pick up location, however there will be a fee associated with the change of port.
What should I wear if I want to visit some religious sites?
If you intend to visit religious sites, please have knees and shoulders covered (both men and women).
Is this tour accessible for people with limited walking abilities?
The itinerary can certainly be customised according to your needs, but please note that some areas may not be accessible with a stroller/wheelchair or for people with limited walking abilities.
Which pickup time do you suggest from the port?
We suggest that you set an early pickup time, 7:30 am (in accordance with your ship's in port hours), in order for you to avoid the local rush hour traffic and have more time to enjoy your service to the fullest.
What is your back to port policy?
We have a back to port policy of at least 1 hour prior to the last scheduled boarding time for the ship.
Is this tour suitable for people with limited walking abilities?
Due to the uneven surfaces in some areas, this service may not be suitable for stroller/wheelchair users or for people with limited walking abilities.
Where and how will I find the driver at Civitavecchia port?
Your driver will be waiting for you at the gangway of your cruise ship holding a sign with your name written on it.
What happens to my nonrefundable tickets, for the Colosseum or Vatican for example, if the cruise ship itinerary is changed?
Unfortunately, as tickets are non-refundable, non-exchangeable and non-transferable, if tickets have already been purchased when your cruise ship changes the itinerary, the tickets purchased will no longer be valid for your tour. Please contact us and we will be happy to advise on entrance times for you to purchase new tickets on your own.
