If you’re looking for something different to do on your next trip to Rome, you may want to consider taking a boat trip along the River Tiber. It’s a fantastic way to take in the historical sites around Rome. Here are some options you might want to consider.
Hop-on Hop-off River Cruise
This has got to be one of the best ways of sightseeing in Rome. You get all the beautiful river views combined with stop-offs at all the major attractions and landmarks such as the Colosseum and Vatican.
With your ticket you can hop on and hop off as much as you like. And when you’re booking, look out for the cruise tickets that also entitle you to discounts at many of Rome’s shops, restaurants and museums.
Dinner Cruises on the River Tiber
What could be more romantic than cruising through the heart of the Imperial city at night while enjoying the best in Italian cuisine? On a typical dinner cruise you would set sail from Castel
Sant'Angelo, cruising down the river towards Tiberina Island then back up to Ponte del Risorgimento, north of the Borghese Gardens, before returning to Sant'Angelo.
Boats Trips to the Ancient Harbour of Ostia Antica
This is one of Rome’s most interesting archaeological sites. Boat trips usually depart from Ponte Marconi and should be booked in advance to avoid disappointment. A river trip to Ostia Antica takes around two hours each way, with a stopover in between to explore the ruins.
If you like the sound of cruising along the Tiber River, why not take advantage of Jet2’s cheap flights to Rome. Flights depart daily from Glasgow, Leeds Bradford and Manchester.
