Civitavecchia Shore Excursion: Rome in One Day Private Tour

Civitavecchia Shore Excursion: Rome in One Day Private Tour

When your ship docks at the Civitavecchia cruise port, hop aboard your private air-conditioned vehicle for the drive into Rome, where your shore excursion starts in Vatican City. Meet your private guide, and enter the Vatican Museums with your skip-the-line ticket.

Inside, wander the vast complex of galleries and rooms that house the world’s largest collection of art. Your guide will introduce you to the highlights, including, of course, the Sistine Chapel, where you can gaze in wonder at Michelangelo’s famous ceiling fresco, The Creation of Adam. Then visit neighboring St Peter’s Basilica (where you’ll also skip the line) to see another famous Michelangelo piece, his La Pietà sculpture, before heading out to St Peter’s Square.

Next, you’ll be transferred into Rome’s historical center, where you have a break to buy lunch (own expense); your guide can offer recommendations about local restaurants. Then continue your exploration of the city, checking out iconic landmarks like the Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, Piazza Navona and the Pantheon. You’ll end your tour at the Colosseum, where your skip-the-line ticket once again allows you to go directly inside without waiting in the main entrance queue. Walk along the ancient amphitheater’s main level, and learn about the gory gladiator battles and other events that make up its bloody history.

Your day tour ends with the drive back to Civitavecchia so you can catch your cruise ship. 

Note: Your private guide provides commentary about Rome and its iconic sights throughout the day. If you have any special interests, such as architecture, art, culture or history, please provide this information at the time of booking so your guide can best prepare for your private tour.
