This tour is designed for guests who would like a limited guided tour with free time to explore Rome at their leisure. Once in Rome, you will be dropped off at 3D Rewind, where you will watch a 3D special effects journey that seems to transport you through ancient Rome. After this amazing virtual adventure, you'll walk to the iconic Roman Colosseum. A masterpiece of classical architecture, the Colosseum is an enormous amphitheater where gladiators, Christians and wild beasts once battled to the death in front of as many as 50,000 spectators.

Following your exterior visit of the Colosseum, you'll see the imposing triumphal Arch of Titus, erected in 81 AD by the Emperor Domitian in honor of the victories in battle of his brother and father in Judea. You will also admire the Via Sacra, the sacred route followed by religious and triumphal processions. Continue on by walking to the exterior of the Roman Forum, through lovely Venice Square and into Piazza Navona. This charming square exudes a relaxed atmosphere and features beautiful architecture within its church and fountain. Then, enjoy free time for lunch on your own, shopping and further exploration of the treasures of Rome. Afterwards, you'll drive back to the ship.

Please note: Guests must be able to walk approximately 2 miles over even and cobblestone surfaces with some steps. An escort will be on the coach during the trip to/from Rome and a local guide will be met once in Rome for the half-day guided portion of the tour. Tour includes approximately 2.5 hours of independent exploration. The order of the tour may be reversed or altered depending on traffic or local conditions. On Sundays and public holidays, the majority of shops, boutiques and small stores will be closed. Only souvenir shops will be open.
