Rome – Arrive in the Capital of Italy with Romantic Tiber River Cruise
The Eternal City of Rome will sweep you into the romantic past with a charismatic ambiance that emanates from the combination of grand Baroque palaces and narrow medieval lanes. Monuments decorate the city center, reflecting over 3,000 years of history and a particular golden age when the piazzas, palaces, and churches acted as the capital of the Christian World. Your private transfer will meet you at Fiumicino Airport upon your arrival and will escort you to the comfort of your accommodation.
The great pleasures of Rome will provide a spirited welcome that highlights the passion of Italian culture with traditions dedicated to art, architecture, fashion, and cuisine. The Colosseum soars above the remains of the Roman Forum, and the fountains in Piazza Navona trickle with water in pools as elaborate marble sculptures cradle them. In the evening, you will board a boat from the banks of the Tiber River and set sail on a charming evening cruise complete with a perfect view of the golden light that reflects against the stone of the antique buildings above.
Live music will play inside the dining area as it fills with the aroma of traditional Roman cuisine, such as artichokes bathed in olive oil and white wine with fresh herbs. From the deck, you will have a fabulous view of the Castel Sant’Angelo that towers over the riverbanks. The structure was erected in the second century AD as the tomb for Emperor Hadrian before successive popes transformed the edifice into an elegant fortress. The angelic figures that decorate the bridge were designed by Bernini in the seventeenth century and add an air of grace beneath the mighty walls of the castle.
