Our One-Day Roman Holiday {Video}


rome norwegian cruise line family vacationOne of the cities I’ve always wanted to visit is Rome, but I never thought I’d get there on a cruise! Of course, my husband and I were only in Rome and the Vatican for less than 10 hours while the Norwegian Epic was at port, but it was enough for us to become enamored with the city, its art, architecture, history, and vibrant energy.

While our girl had a blast during Port Play aboard the Norwegian Epic’s Recess Kid’s Club, we walked out to the port of Civitavecchia to board the Ultimate Rome shore excursion tour bus which would take us on our first Roman adventure during one of the hottest days of the city’s recorded history.

Nevertheless, what we lived was unforgettable and we’ve got the video to prove it. Check it out.
