We stopped off in Civitaveccia port which is just under an hour's drive from Rome. Opting for the Rome in a day excursion, we packed quite a bit into the day so it did feel quite rushed. First stop, the Coliseum, however, we were told not to go in as we wouldn't have time to queue up, so we just walked around. We hit the Spanish steps and Trevi fountain next, followed by Vatican city. One thing is that whilst Rome itself may not be too busy, as soon as you get anywhere near these landmarks, it's full of tourists, keep that in mind if you plan on visiting near Summer as it was already pretty crowded in May. We did feel that we were quite rushed as we were some of the last people to get back on the coach and some people even had to meet us at the next destination.
