The Trevi Fountain, the Vatican, the Spanish Steps, the Pantheon and the Piazza Navona are just some of the places you can visit before we pick you up at St Peter's Square for the trip back to the port of Civitavecchia.

'Rome on your Own' is an excursion which gives you the flexibility to enjoy the sights of Rome at your own pace. Attractions you may choose to visit include:
St Peter’s Square - The striking square and its imposing colonnade lead to the greatest basilica of the Christian world. St Peter’s Basilica also represents the core of the Vatican City, the smallest state in the world.
The Colosseum - Completed in AD 80, this is the largest amphitheatre ever built and is considered one of the greatest works of Roman architecture and engineering. It hosted gladiatorial contests and public spectacles until the early medieval era.
The Vatican - A symbol of the Catholic faith, the Vatican City State is home to the Pope as well as religious and cultural sites such as St. Peter's Basilica, the Sistine Chapel and the Vatican Museums. These feature some of the world's most famous paintings and sculptures.
The Trevi Fountain - Inspired by Roman triumphal arches, this is the largest and most famous Baroque fountain in Rome.
The Pantheon - This temple, dedicated to all the gods of pagan Rome, is the most well-preserved and influential building of Ancient Rome, having been in continuous use throughout its almost 2000-year history.
The Spanish Steps - This monumental stairway was completed in 1725 and is often used to host famous fashion shows. The steps provide a stunning location in which to relax and take in your fabulous surroundings.
The Piazza Navona - Built on the site of the Stadium of Domitian, in the 1st Century AD, this beautiful square is a perfect place to souvenir shop or just sit and have a snack and coffee.
