Ultimate Rome

Traveling in a small group, you’ll explore the Colosseum where gladiators fought, and the grandeur and treasures of the Vatican, including St. Peter’s Basilica and Michelangelo’s magnificent Sistine Chapel.


You’ll start in ancient Rome, with a visit to the city’s iconic Colosseum. The Romans built amphitheaters all across their vast empire, but this is the largest and most important of them all. Its four levels of seats could hold 50,000 spectators for bloody gladiatorial combat and wild animal fights. At times the Coliseum was flooded and simulated sea battles were fought.


Toss a coin into the Trevi Fountain to ensure your return. This massive Baroque extravaganza in stone was built in 1732 and features Neptune, god of the sea, surging forward in his shell-shaped chariot. You’ll walk to the Pantheon, where you can enter on your own and have free time for lunch. This is one of the best-preserved of all the ancient Roman structures, with the largest brick dome in the history of architecture.


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.


Note: This is a fast-paced tour that requires an extensive amount of walking over cobblestone terrain and stairs. As tour visits a religious site, please dress appropriately - no bare shoulders, shorts, or skirts above the knee. You’ll travel to Rome via motorcoach along with an escort and transfer to a smaller vehicle with your guide upon arrival. Expect large crowds at the Vatican and Sistine Chapel, especially during summer. 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.
