Rome Beyond the Beaten Path: Testaccio and Trastevere

Book This Shore Excursion
Starting from $249 USD / Adult
Discover a side of Rome that lies beyond its mighty ruins and fabled locales. This tour leads you past the well-traveled streets to find a local perspective of life and a host of experiences that just aren’t found on travel maps. A panoramic drive across the countryside leads to Rome and the rambunctious neighborhood of Testaccio. Witness its telltale monument, a massive mound of discarded Roman-era amphorae, before venturing to the Non-Catholic Cemetery. This is among the oldest burial grounds still being used in Europe, and the final resting place of legendary poets, painters, sculptors, dignitaries and diplomats. From here, venture to the narrow streets of medieval Trastevere. Stroll into the Piazza Santa Maria to admire the golden mosaics of the Church of Santa Maria, and stop for lunch at a charming local restaurant. Return to the ship with memories of the Eternal City that few will ever know.
  • Stroll through the medieval streets of Trastevere for a true glimpse of local life in the Eternal City.
  • Visit the Non-Catholic Cemetery, final resting place of Keats, Shelley and countless other poets and artists.
