From Civitavecchia: Golf Cart Tour of Rome

3. From Civitavecchia: Golf Cart Tour of Rome

After pickup from the Civitavecchia Cruise Port in a comfortable Mercedes van, you’ll head straight to Rome to meet your expert, English-speaking guide. Across your tour, amble down the 15th-century, cobblestone streets, jetting between the most popular and iconic sights of the city, and lesser-known, off-the-beaten path sections exclusively known to locals.  On the maneuverable golf cart, you’ll head to the Trevi Fountain, pausing to gaze upon its ornate marble statues. Swing by the Villa Borghese, a stunning park home to one of the best views of the historical center of Rome. Head to the Spanish Steps before traveling to 2 of Rome’s most iconic squares, Navona and Venezia, before heading to Colosseum. At this point, depending on the option chosen, you’ll either head to Vatican City to explore the center of the Catholic world, or head to the Renaissance Square to grab a bite to eat. If you choose the Vatican City option, you'll be accompanied through the Vatican Museum with a private guide. If you choose the option without the Vatican City tour, you'll have more time to continue exploring Rome. After experiencing the thrilling cosmopolitanism of the Eternal City, you’ll be driven back to your cruise ship.
