The perfect way to enjoy a day in Rome! Take part in this excursion from Civitavecchia Port to Rome experiencing the comfort of a private, chauffeur-driven car. There is no better way to see Rome highlights. Your driver will pick you up from the cruise dock, and your Rome private guide will stay with you all the time. Stopping for lunch in a typical restaurant that we book for you will optimize your precious time!
Your driver will pick you up at the dock of your Ship at 8:30 and bring you to your private guide. Kick-off your Rome shore excursion at the massive Coliseum; fights between gladiators and beasts took place for the pleasure of bloodthirsty Romans. The Rome Colosseum tour continues to the Roman Forum. As you traverse the area, you are walking in the footsteps of Roman Emperors, bringing more than two millennia of history to life.
Unlike other tours, our Coliseum tour includes the Palatine. According to ancient legend, Romulus founded Rome on the Palatine hill in 753 B.C. Following his actions, the Emperors built their opulent homes for the rest of the civilization to enjoy.
After lunch (included in the price), you will enter the Vatican with your Rome certified guide. Home to countless Popes, there are few more uplifting sights than this spiritually enriching setting. The unmissable Sistine Chapel with its sublime “Last Judgment” by Michelangelo is on top of the list of Rome highlights, as this masterpiece draws crowds from far and wide.
Among the galleries of the Vatican Museums, you will enjoy a unique collection of mosaics, ancient Greek and Roman sculptures, as well as the magnificent Raphael Rooms, once the official residence of the Pope himself.
At the end of this private tour package of Rome from Civitavecchia, your driver will bring you back to the port on time for your Ship’s departure.
Remember to cover knees and shoulders before entering the Sistine Chapel and the Basilica.
Between 1 pm and 2 pm, you will be offered lunch in a selected restaurant, as included in the tour price ( Starter, Main course, and water ).
