What You Can Expect
Glide toward the area known as Capitoline Hill, and as you approach it you’ll be met with the jaw-dropping sights of Ancient Rome. Once the home of richly elaborate temples, shops, markets and government buildings, the area is now a fascinating archeological site peppered with 2,000-year-old world-famous ruins.
Head right up to it and weave around the outskirts of the Roman Forum, seeing grandiose monuments like the Arch of Constantine and Trajan’s Column. Hear the history of the site in its heyday from your audio commentary, learning about its status as the administrative center of Rome.
Pass Palentine Hill and stop for a look at Circus Maximus, the vast stretch of flat land where chariot races were once held to entertain up to 250,000 locals. Continue to the Colosseum, Rome’s iconic monument on the east side of Ancient Rome, and stop for photos while listening to commentary about the gory, yet glorified, gladiator battles that once took place inside.
After weaving through the crowds outside the ruins, take back to the streets and head to the Church of Santa Maria to see the Mouth of Truth – an intriguing marble slab. Featured in the hit 1950s movie Roman Holiday, the ancient manhole cover is said to be a lie detector. Test the legend by putting your hand in its ‘mouth’; if you tell a lie, you won’t get it back!
As you wind your way back toward the center of Rome, stop at a scenic vantage point to enjoy picture-perfect views over the city. Your tour then finishes back at the start point in central Rome.
This excursion is located within 46 miles (75km) to the port, so you determine the time you return to your ship in Civitavecchia. Please allow yourself ample time to enjoy the excursion and ensure your timely return to the port. This excursion is not covered by our worry-free policy.
A great tour. Marco was fabulous and made riding the Segway easy. Would definitely do this again and even consider participating in the Florence trip as well.
The tour was amazing. Well worth it! Fabio was our tour guide and he is also an archaeologist. So he knows a lot! Everyone in Rome was looking in at our group with jelous eyes!! The segweys are so fun. Our group consisted of young and old (only 6 of us) and everyone loved the segweys! Def recommend!
