We took the ship excursion. It was about 10 hours including the bus ride. Again the guide walked too fast for us but she a sign, held-up high to see where she is in the crowd. We were told that Rome is the 2nd most tourist visited place behind Disney World. We had to walk about 1/4 mile to the piazza, whereby, we then walked with our given map of the area. We elected to visit the Trevi Fountain & other areas for about 1 1/2 hrs. Then we were bussed to a restaurant for lunch. Nice lunch; again not better than USA. Next we bussed by some popular sights in Rome. Then we went to the Vatican. Although there was a very long line along the towering walls, we were escorted into the entrance without any wait. It was a very long tour of the Vatican and St. Peter's Bascillica (largest Cathredal in the Christian world). We saw many museums on the way to the Sistine Chapel. The new guide at the Vatican was very informative. Again with the large crowds of visitors, we lost her a couple of times. But we found her because we had headsets. The stronger the signal & voice, the closer we got to her. The Vatican and the St. Peter's and the square's changing of the Swiss guards was most impressive. We then left there, we boarded for another bus tour of other places in Rome. Since we had a long delay on the highway back to the ship, fortunately, because we had booked the Rome excursion through Carnival, the ship delayed its departure until the buses arrived to the port.
