Travel to Rome from the port in Civitavecchia by coach, a journey of roughly 1.5 hours (depending on traffic).

I found the tour guide excellent. She knew Rome very well as she had been born there. She was able to. Get us past other large groups. The pick up and return went very smoothly and she was very considerate to the individuals as to washroom breaks and lunch venues. We were fortunate that we were a very small group so she had time to answer individual questions. I would recommend Viator to other travelers

Great tour. Guide was excellent. Lots of confusion at the port but once the tour started it was great.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

Our guide was great! We saw all the major sights except for the trevi fountain because of construction. The only issue is that because the port is so far they left a little early so that we didn't miss our ship but we ended up being back with a couple hours to spare that I would have rather spent in rome. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and spoke great english. Great knowledge!

Tour was teriffic. Allesandra was our guide and she was excellent. really nice overview of Rome. Only downside was hooking up with our tour bus at port. instructions/directions were a little vague. there were some of our group that did not arrive on time and were left behind.
