Rome & The Vatican
You'll see the Eternal City on an orientation drive passing iconic structures like the Colosseum of ancient Rome where gladiators fought, and the Roman Forum, center of the ancient city’s public life – hosting everything from triumphal processions to political speeches.
In Vatican City admire the beauty of St. Peter’s Square, and view some of the treasures of the world’s largest church, St. Peter’s Basilica during your brief visit. The Vatican Museum is home to masterpieces spanning the centuries, marvel at the Sistine Chapel, topped by Michelangelo’s magnificent ceiling. Lunch is included. Note:
Tour is quick paced, with an extensive amount of walking over cobblestone terrain and several steps to negotiate. As tour visits a religious site, please dress appropriately - no bare shoulders, shorts, or skirts above the knee. Your guide will join you in Rome, however you’ll have an escort with you throughout the day. Expect large crowds at the Vatican and Sistine Chapel, especially during summer. This tour is offered on all Norwegian Spirit sailings and on Norwegian Epic round-trip Barcelona sailings only. The Vatican is closed on Sundays so tour is not offered on Norwegian Spirit’s October 9th and November 14th, 2014 sailings.
