About a 15 minute walk from the Spanish Steps is the Trevi Fountain, a beautiful masterpiece designed by Nicola Salvi. It is a common tradition to sit on the edge of the fountain and toss a coin over your shoulder into the water.

If time permits, you can venture around the area, but it is important to return to St. Peter's Square for pick up and the return to Civitavecchia.

Super easy transfer
September 17, 2018
This was a super easy and economical option for a transfer from Livornio to Rome. The port shuttles brought us right to where all of the buses meet for excursions in Livornio. The coach was comfortable and easy to rest in. I understand this is an excursion available for all of the ships coming in that day, but we did have to come back a couple hours before we needed to be back at our ship. It would have been nice to have that extra time in Rome. Highly recommended for a transfer though.

Transportation from port to Rome
September 27, 2017
Excellent service provided. We were picked up at the NCL shuttle drop off point and driven to Florence. Spent Sufficient time touring Florence and having lunch. Next boarded the bus to Pisa, got to see the leaning tower of Pisa and then was driven back directly to the ship in good time prior to the cut off time of the ship. Driver and attendant were polite and helpful giving us the history of all sights. Highly recommend

Great way to explore Rome
August 10, 2017
We were limited on time coming off our cruise ship with LOTS we wanted to see in Rome and this was the perfect (and most cost effective way) to do this. The driver was friendly and the organizer (who was only with us one way) were great. We had plenty of time to see all the major sights and even go into the Colosseum. Overall very happy with this excursion!

You pay for the bus ride.

This excursion is just paying for the bus ride from the ship to Rome. The employee on th bus was helpful in that she provided an opportunity to buy Hop On/Hop Off bus tickets, and walked us from the meeting point to the nearest hop on hop off stop. They were on time and great.
