Oceania Exclusive Tour

For those travelers who prefer an added measure of intimacy and flexibility, we are pleased to offer our new Oceania Exclusive tours. With a minimum of 10 guests and a maximum capacity of just 16 guests, each tour benefits from a higher level of personal attention and the added flexibility and agility that come from traveling in a small group.

Oceania Exclusive tours are available for a specially selected number of tours in almost every port we visit, in every corner of the world.

Discover the Eternal City from the comfort of your air-conditioned coach, taking in some of the city's most beautiful and historic monuments. You will see the Pyramid of Caius Cestius and the ruins of the great Circus Maximus, where the Roman chariot races were held. View the Forum, the Arch of Constantine and the Colosseum, the symbol of the power of Imperial Rome. It's one world famous attraction after another. There is Venice Square, dominated by the huge and impressive monument to King Victor Emmanuel II, the gorgeous Piazza della Popolo, the Aurelian Walls, built to defend Rome against Barbarians, and the lovely Borghese Gardens. Then, after free time for lunch on your own, you will visit the spectacular Vatican Museums, beginning in the magnificent Pine Cone Courtyard. Then, passing through the Candelabra Gallery, the Tapestry Gallery, and Geographical Maps Gallery, you will come upon the breathtaking Sistine Chapel. Here, you can behold the brilliantly restored Michelangelo frescoes of the Genesis and Last Judgment, as well as the other priceless masterpieces adoring the chapel walls. Your tour continues into Christendom's largest church, St. Peter's Basilica. Here, you may admire the gilded papal canopy suspended over the high altar where the pope celebrates mass, the splendid gilt and bronze throne in the apse, and Michelangelo's most glorious work, the intensely inspiring Pietà.

Please note: Dress conservatively to enter churches and monasteries. Guests will be required to wear suitable attire covering the knees and shoulders for the visit inside the Basilica or the Vatican Museum. No shorts, sleeveless tops or other revealing clothing will be permitted. There is 1 mile of walking from the parking area to the basilica. In case St. Peter's Basilica may be closed during religious celebrations, guides will give commentary from outside. Lunch is on your own. This tour is not available to wheelchair guests & not recommended for guests with mobility concerns.
