Default Share PRIVATE TOUR of Rome / Brilliance 9/21/03 It's B

Hello Brilliance Cruisers!
We've booked it. CHECK IS IN THE MAIL! Now we're looking for smiling people to share it and split costs. No Grumpy travelers need apply. We'll ride in comfort and style while the "Big Bus" is still at the port.
Would love to hear from you! All the particulars from www.portcompass.com are listed below.
Kathy and Phil
Rome (Civitavecchia), Italy
Comprehensive Rome plus Return Transfer to Ship
Order code: LIM-FDCTC
Approx. 9-9.5 hours
US$ 99 (33% to 71% lower than comparable tours offered by ships)
Minimum number of passengers: 4 (Ask us how you can Grow-A-Group!)
This is a private tour. For 4pax, tour is conducted in a Mercedes sedan and for 6-8pax, in a minivan. This is a distinct advantage over the ship's tours as large buses are not allowed to enter certain areas of Rome and will require extensive walking to cover the sights. Our tour includes the return transfer (1.5 hours each way) from Civitavecchia to Rome. Lunch is at your own expense. Since this is a custom tour and the itinerary below is merely a suggestion, any entrance fees are payable separately, depending on the actual attractions you select. Includes services of a driver-guide who will provide basic narration. If you require the services of a specialist guide, one can be arranged at an extra cost. Subject to traffic conditions and your actual ship schedule, itinerary and duration may be modified as neccesary to fit your needs. Note that the Vatican Museum is closed on Sundays and can be substituted with attractions of your choice.
This tour is ideal for passengers whose ship is docked for the day in Civitavecchia and who want a comprehensive tour of Rome.
Your driver-guide will pick you up at the ship to start your tour. Enjoy a leisurely 1.5 hour drive through the Etruscan countryside straight to Piazza Venezia, the main square of Rome, the Eternal City. Start by exploring the Rome of the Emperors. Stops will be made at the Roman Forum and the Colosseum but your guide cannot accompany you into these attractions. Your guide will accompany you to the Mouth of Truth. Then take a panoramic drive past the Circus Maximus, the Palatine Hill and the Baths of Caracalla. Spend a half hour exploring the Catacombs with a guide on the Ancient Appian Way, 5 miles from the center of Rome.
Back in the heart of Rome, stop for a visit inside the Pantheon, the best conserved monument of Ancient Rome as well as the nearby Santa Maria Sopra Minerva housing Michelangelo's "Risen Christ," time permitting. You can stop for an optional lunch and enjoy traditional Italian cuisine. Continue with a 45 minute stroll through Baroque and Renaissance Rome: from piazza Navona through the narrow streets of Antiques Row to Campo Fiore and Piazza Farnese. See Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps, Capitol Hill and Piazza del Popolo. Stroll through the narrow streets admiring statues, fountains and discovering curiousities.
Your tour continues with a drive to the Vatican City, the smallest state in the world. St. Peter's Basilica took well over 100 years to build and is the largest church in the world, resting on 800 pillars and littered with 44 alters. Visit the Vatican Museum where an exceptional collection of artwork from every era is on display. Over one thousand rooms and galleries contain thousands of amazing treasures collected by the Popes throughout the centuries. You will have time to only see a portion of the many beautiful pieces of work. Then, you'll visit the Sistine Chapel, highlighted by Michelangelo's masterpieces and the impressive frescoes, including the "Last Judgment." Dominating the chapel is Michelangelo's ceiling painting of the "Creation of the World." You guide cannot accompany you inside the St. Peter's or the Basilica.
If you are particularly interested in art and architecture, the tour can be tailored to include masterpieces by Michelangelo or Raphael, Bernini or Caravaggio in various churches, time permitting. Your tour ends with a return transfer back to the ship.

Default Hi everyone

Hi all

I'm newbie here and came to this topic on Cruisemates Cruise Ship Guide; Cruise Ship Reviews, Message Boards and Bargains. from yahoo search engine.

I really think this topic on Cruisemates Cruise Ship Guide; Cruise Ship Reviews, Message Boards and Bargains. is really interesting.

I'm work on loans related work and I have a blog which giving out info about payday loans

Now I don't have to worry about the unexpected bill getting paid. No personal questions, bad credit accepted, and the money is directly deposited into your checking account. I would suggest this service to anyone who needs quick, fast no faxing payday loans.

A payday loan (also called a paycheck advance) is a small, short-term loan that is intended to cover a borrower's expenses until his or her next payday. The loans are also sometimes referred to as cash advances, though that term can also refer to cash provided against a prearranged line of credit such as a credit card.

I really hope that everyone here don't need some unexpected cash, but if any emergency appears, do not hesitate to use these services!

Look forward to 'meeting' you all.
