The Domus Romane, excavated home of a wealthy ancient Roman, with thrilling special effects.

Head for the adventure of a lifetime on a cruise to Rome, part of your fabulous Mediterranean cruise and a departure point for holidays in Europe. Once the centre of the vast Roman Empire, Rome is packed with mind-blowing ancient treasures, Baroque and Renaissance masterpieces and awe-inspiring museums.

On a holiday in Rome, you’ll love exploring this thrilling city, from the Vatican and Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel to ancient wonders such as the Forum, the Pantheon and the Palatine Hill. Walk in the footsteps of gladiators and wild beasts beneath the mighty Colosseum or discover eerie catacombs and exhilarating art.

For a modern twist, there’s Zaha Hadid’s eye-catching MAXXI museum or fashion spotting in Rome’s exclusive stores. When you’re all trekked out, do as the Romans do, and sip cappuccino in a pavement café, watching the world go by.
