Rome – Arrive in Rome for a Romantic Four-Course Tiber Dinner Cruise
The churches in Rome create the skyline with elaborate domes and fascinating spires rising over the terracotta rooftops. The Eternal City shimmers with gold in the morning light and glows deep orange at sunset. Hidden gardens fill the air with the aromas of jasmine and orange while enticing restaurants hide within the cozy corners of historical buildings. Your private transfer will greet you at Rome Fiumicino Airport upon your arrival and escort you both to your gorgeous hotel that will combine the grandeur of antiquity with the luxury of modern amenities, embodying the brilliance of Rome. You will have time to explore the beauty of the cobblestone streets that wind around the historic city center at your leisure and eventually land at the Pantheon, one of the oldest surviving structures in the city dating back to the 1st century AD.
The dome has a diameter of more than 140 feet with a central opening that reaches nearly 30 feet wide, providing the only light source for the entire structure. The marble floors slope at a slight angle leading to the interior’s center, where a groove allowed rainwater to drain. A harmonious ambiance fills the gallery, deriving from the diameter of the dome and the height of the walls being of the same proportions. 16 massive concrete pillars support the portico in front of the large doors once draped in bronze.
In the early evening, you step onto the dock near the Sant’Angelo Bridge. The light casts a unique glow across the marble statues that frame the walkway above, with each figure designed by the master Gian Lorenzo Bernini. Board an elegant boat and set off on the Tiber River, the source of life and the heart of the Roman Empire. The glass windows provide ample views of the antique city and its fascinating architecture that rises over the elevated river banks, guiding your eyes from St. Mark’s Basilica to Sant’Angelo Castle. You can sit back and sip your wine as you enjoy the luscious aroma of simmering garlic and herbs while savoring the gentle sounds of the strumming guitar and the pleasure of the company you keep.
