Civitavecchia/Rome, Italy

Fast GetawaysHundred Mile Horizon

Reached by motor coach from Civitavecchia, Rome is a city of unending possibilities. Rome greets visitors with a multitude of faces – the ancient city, with ruins like the Colosseum and Roman Forum. Renaissance Rome, full of winding streets and sun-dappled piazzas, and the Vatican, home to the Pope and St. Peter’s Cathedral.

Art is everywhere, with masterpieces often hidden in tiny, nondescript churches. After dark, enotecas (wine bars) and nightclubs come alive with Italian energy. Just don’t forget your Prada: Romans know style as well as they do history.
