When it comes to the Eternal City, your tenth visit is just as thrilling as your first. There’s just so much to explore here, whether that’s soaking up iconic architectural gems like the Colosseum or St Peter’s Basilica, or people watching while sipping espresso in a street-side café. On your Mediterranean cruise we’ll take you to the capital of Italy via the coastal city of Civitavecchia, which has roots stretching back to the 2nd century. During your time here, check out the ruins of some ancient Roman baths or discover the Michelangelo Fort. Rome cruises are the perfect opportunity to experience the famous Italian dolce vita. It won’t take you long to get into the swing of things – hot, lazy afternoons are spent tucking into hearty classics at friendly neighbourhood trattorias before hopping between world treasures such as the Pantheon, Sistine Chapel and the Vatican Museums. Stroll among the atmospheric remains of the Roman Forum, with its myriad of temples and basilicas. As the sun sets, enjoy some aperitivo (drinks paired with snacks) in a romantic al fresco setting. Complete your Rome visit by going to the Trevi Fountain. Throwing a coin into the fountain over your shoulder promises the city that you’ll return.
