This excursion operates by coach and on foot.The drive between Civitavecchia and Rome is approximately 1½ hours each way. A guided interior visit to St Peters Basilica is not included. At the entrance of the churches you may encounter considerable crowds, lines and delays at the venues. Please dress conservatively when visiting sacred sites. Visitors will be required to check in large bags, video cameras and bottled water. For security reasons churches could close at short notice. In this Jubilee year, Vatican authorities will give priority to pilgrim groups. Should the designated coach drop off/pick up point for the churches be congested or unavailable, an alternative location will be used.
