Jun 21 – Fri Civitavecchia (Rome) – Italy Morning Evening
Individual arrival in Rome ~ embarkation on Sea Dream II.

Civitavecchia, is the modern port of Rome located 80 km north-west of the city. Meaning ‘ancient town’ in Italian, this port town was built over the pre-existing Etruscan settlement and is the gate-way to Rome by sea.
If True Greece has arranged for your pre-cruise experience at a luxury Rome hotel, before meeting your private car transfer to board your cruise at the port of Civitavecchia, enjoy a True Greece guided tour of Rome or as it is also known, the ‘Eternal City’.

Together with your local guide, explore the incredible city that grew to rule a vast empire and became the center of the Christian World. See the Senate and the Basilica of Constantine, ancient ruins including temples, basilicas, and Reggia. Walk the Via Sacra to the Arch of Tito and enjoy the Colosseum; head to the Basilica of St. Peter to see the Holy Chains of St. Peter and the Moses carved by Michelangelo! It is here that artists and architects flocked during the Renaissance and Baroque periods and this is evident at every turn. It is truly remarkable to see the generations of a city right before your eyes, as Rome is a city with an uninterrupted history.

Some excellent beaches to consider while in Dubrovnik are Banje, Dubrovnik's main public beach, home to the East-West Beach Club, or Copacabana Beach, a stony beach on the Lapad peninsula, named after the popular beach in Rio de Janeiro.
