At 9:00 am our ship docked in Civitavecchia and sail at 9:00 pm. The city of Rome , also called Eternal City waiting for us with many wonders to see, the Colosseum, the Vatican, the Trevi Fountain …
We got up late, without a clear idea of whether or not we would go to Rome , but upon arriving to the port we decided we had outstanding many things to see in this city despite having been twice before. Our destination today would be the Colosseum.
We went to breakfast when latecomers, as passengers who had decided to go to Rome with the ship had long since gone, but at 10:30 am we were already biting the ticket Birg doing the same route that explained the Last time we stepped into this port. The only difference was that this time we’re wrong train and took the direct, having to pay the price difference inside the same when we came to chop the ticket, which was 15 € the two conjoined at 9 € pp which cost us the Birg . The difference between a train and another is that instead of an hour and it takes one quarter to reach Rome the other takes only half an hour. From my point of view it was worth it and more in this time that we were in the right time.
Once got off at the stop Termini , we took the tube to station Coliseo , using the same ticket Birg.
When we arrived, we only had to cross the street and we are at the Coliseum . There we find that the line was endless, literally and without exaggeration, something else very normal side considering it was August, it was the Colosseum and we were late … We got in line, but I thought I’d return to me without him imagining that by the time we got to the door, when it would become, because time is exhausted.
While we waited I listened to the guides, saying that we did not expect long lines, that they would save us going directly into.
These guides were for whites visitors. Once we got to the entrance of the Coliseum , in the end it took much as expected, we saw an even thicker tail width and length as the previous one , that’s when I fell bats sombrajo, thinking we had hoped to the end not to go, but we started to listen to other guides who gave us the option of taking a guided tour in Spanish for 5 € pp added to the cost of entry, there were 12 € pp. We decided it was worth it and follow it . It took until a group of Spaniards who expected more in and when the group had 25 people, we guided by a girl. It was a very interesting tour where they explained the history of the Coliseum , as built, which made spectacles, etc …. Once the tour ended, we thought it best to return to the ship. It was very hot, not as much as in Tunisia and time was running out, so we headed back to the subway station. This time we took the right train coming on board around 5:15 pm. Again we were greeted by the crew of the Solstice with icy towels and refreshments. After a refreshing shower we went to the buffet which at that time had less variety of food than usual. According to the time you go to eat varies more or less quantity and variety buffet menu. I took some pizza, but my husband preferred tex-mex food in Mast Grill on deck 14, making lunch this day in this refreshing poolside area.
During the days we had been enjoying the cruise we had a chance to take the hammocks in the form of shells found in the pool. Taking advantage had not yet reached most of the return ticket of the tour of Rome, we were delighted with these hammocks, with relaxation area and the bathroom for a while. We then decided to dress up and quickly down it was time for dinner this time was ¾ of an hour later than usual because of the excursion passengers arrived at 8:30 pm.
After dinner we went to the Sky Observation Lounge nightclub located on the bow deck 15, (tonight itself that the ship ‘s movement was noticeable, so to avoid dizziness, I took my pill corresponding). We listen to music in a friendly atmosphere and we had a drink. Seeing that Sky did not dare, we decided to go to sleep, we had had a busy day and we were tired … and tomorrow Livorno ..
