Day 14 - Rome and SCAVI Tour

We were picked up by our driver in Citavecchia where the Princess berthed. It was extremely fortunate that we had arranged for a driver since there was a taxi strike on in Rome. He drove us to Plaza Garibaldi and our hotel (Crowne Plaza – very nice) near Travestere. He then took us to St. Peter-in-Chains, the Catacombes, Colosseum and Pallatine Hill, SCAVI Tour (only 200 people allowed per day – with serious guards), St Peter’s Basilica, past Sophia Loren’s former home, the Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, and numerous other sites.
