Venice is about 300 hundred miles from Rome. We can drive it in about 6 hours and some of the trains do it a bit faster.

Hi New Cruiser:

Just wanted to say re Rome, we took a private tour in September with a service, limousineserviceinrome.com, and we were very satisfied. Check their website. We were a party of five and the cost was $500 Euros. Following is their marketing itinerary. However, we did not have time for the Catacombs, but did stop and have lunch at a local restaurant.

ROME & VATICAN CITY (9 hours)
Round trip miles 130

After meeting at the dock we will reach Rome (90 minutes drive) through the old Aurelia Way.
First stop will be at Piazza Venezia with the imposing monument dedicated to the Unknown Warrior and nicknamed by the locals the typewriter, due to its shape. We will then start to explore the Ancient Rome of the Emperors visiting the Colosseum and walking through the Holy Way and the Roman Forum. Again on board we will take a panoramic drive by the Circus Maximus, the Palatine Hill, the Baths of Caracalla and will have a 30 min guided visit of the Catacombs on the Ancient Appian Way. Then we will be back again in the heart of Eternal City visiting the Pantheon (27 B.C.) the best conserved monument where, between the others, the famous painter Raffaello is buried. The tour will continue through the most important Baroque and Renaissance sites: from Piazza Navona to Piazza Farnese, enjoying the pleasure to walk through narrow street and alleys surrounded by history and art. We will see the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps and Piazza del Popolo, before reaching the Vatican City where we will visit S.Peterís Basilica, the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel. Finally we will drive back to the ship.
