In Ancient Rome, the Tiber was strategically important for the city. It was on this river that the first settlements were built that eventually evolved into the large buildings now found along the Tiber and throughout the city. As in other cities such as London and Paris, tour boats were introduced along the river in 2003 to allow this unique opportunity to view the city from the banks of the roman river both by day or by night.
The river cruise on the Tiber is a great way to explore the city and take a few romantic photos, surrounded by the Eternal City. Along this cruise you can admire the great Palace of Justice, designed by William Calderoni; Sant'Angelo Castle, one of the oldest monuments of Rome; and also St. Peter's Basilica. Continuing down the river, you will find Tiberina Island, a picturesque island linked by one of the most famous bridges in the city, which you'll pass under before continuing on to discover other popular attactions in Rome.
