Best Itineraries for an Enthralling Tour of Rome

Italy is one of those international destinations that boast a string of intriguing places to visit. Indeed, you can compare it to a string of pearls where every place is comparable to a pearl in terms of natural beauty, heritage value, historical importance, and more. However, if you are looking for a place that truly evokes the sensation of being in Italy, you may go for Rome shore excursions. Indeed, this is more than a tour and is perfectly termed as an excursion. There is so much to see in this tour. Let’s go through your likely itinerary in Rome.

Your Itinerary In A Rome Shore Excursion

Rome

Your itinerary starts from a centrally located hotel in Rome. Your driver will meet you at the hotel and set you on a journey of a lifetime. You will be transported to the sight and sound of AD 79 when the eruption of Mount Vesuvius destroyed the ancient towns of Pompeii which you may have read in history books. Your driver will take you on 2 hour & 45 minutes ride through the A1 Highway heading south until you reach Pompeii. Usually, the group size is limited to 8 or less than passengers.

Pompei

The most enthralling leg of your Rome shore excursions itinerary starts here. Soak in the sight and sound of the devastated town, try to imagine the curse that had befallen the hapless people of the town, sit back and relax. You will feel remorse for the people, but more than that you will feel awestruck by the suddenness and power of nature’s fury.

This is a place that is standing still since 79 AD when the cataclysmic eruption of Mt. Vesuvius wiped out life in the town with tons of ash and lava. You will get an official guide and a tour of Pompei for 2.5 hours so that you can truly get to the bottom of that fateful day and reflect on it. You can tour the streets of Pompei with the guide and go through the public baths, temples, and markets, some of which still retain their original marble decoration, frescoes, and mosaics.

Montecassino Abbey

Next on your Rome shore excursions itinerary is Montecassino Abbey, the first monastery of the Benedictine Order. Established in 529 by ‘Saint Benedict of Nursia,’ this monastery was destroyed time and again by earthquakes, invaders and bombers. It has been rebuilt several times. Perched at the top of the mountain and overlooking Cassino, this is a fine example of Roman architecture. It is an active pilgrimage site as it houses the remains of Saint Benedict and his twin sister. However, your itinerary does not include visiting the abbey. You can have a grand drive-by to look at the Abbey.

Vatican City & Sistine Chapel

Leave the port to drive to Rome and the Vatican Museum. This perhaps is some of the smallest states in the world; however, it houses one of the most valuable art collections globally. The Renaissance frescoes, Candelabras Gallery, and the Dutch Tapestries are some priceless treasures that you will see. Then the Sistine Chapel houses Michelangelo’s Last Judgement frescoes. Then see the St Peter's Basilica before getting back on board your ship.

Sum Up

It is truly a journey that you will remember for a long time. At the end of the visit, stop for a quick bite and head back to your ship. Summing up, it doesn’t matter which part of Italy you choose to visit, there is absolutely no doubt, that the experience, will give you some memories, you won’t forget in your lifetime.
