Full description of the tour

Visit the Highlights of Rome in a shore excursion from Civitavecchia Port!

Your English tour driver will welcome you at your dock in Civitavecchia Port. As you get closer to Rome, you will immediately notice there will be more and more historical sites as the Pyramid of Caius Cestius, the Circus Maximus, and the Palatine Hill, where there are ancient ruins of what were once imperial palaces.

The best thing about the Eternal City is that everywhere you look there is a piece of history. Whether it’s a statue, a monument or a still standing, ancient building, there’s so many stories to tell! This private tour will make your head spin!

First of all, you’ll visit the Colosseum, which dates back to 80 AD, it is certainly one of the most impressive buildings of the Roman Empire. You’ll have some time to walk around the Colosseum to take pictures and eventually visit it inside on your own.
*Upon request: we can arrange reservations for skip the line tickets to visit it on the inside.

After the Colosseum, we will drive by the Circus Maximus, an ancient Roman stadium famous for chariot races and entertainment.

Next, you will see the Capitoline hill, one of Rome’s seven legendary hills, where you can enjoy a scenic view overlooking the Forum, where countless foundations, columns and arches have survived the religious, social and commercial hub of imperial Rome.

Furthermore, you will go to the Pantheòn, the best-preserved example of an ancient Roman monumental building, where you will have time to stop for pictures and visit it on the inside.

Your next stop is the Trevi Fountain, the most famous and certainly one of the most beautiful fountain in all of Rome; legend has it, that if you toss a coin into the fountain over your left shoulder, as a result, there will be a return to the Eternal City, in your near future.

For lunch, your tour driver will suggest a local typical restaurant in Trastevere, or Campo de Fiori, two of Rome’s most charming areas.

Finally, in the afternoon is the St. Peter’s Basilica (Vatican), which has the largest interior of any Christian church in the world. It is affirmed as one of the Holiest Catholic sites in the World.

Visit the symbol of Christianity, Saint Peter’s Basilica

Take time to enter St. Peter’s Basilica and admire the High Renaissance and baroque architecture. The atmosphere is so overwhelming, with its grateness of art and golden details, marble and mosaics. Be sure not to miss Michelangelo’s magnificence, the Pieta, completed when the young master was in his 20s.

*Since there are security checks in the Vatican, and you should expect a wait to enter the Basilica. Time allowed inside the Basilica is based on the required wait time to enter. There is a dress code to respect, to enter the St. Peter’s Basilica. Shorts are not allowed for men or women; as for tank tops, bare shoulders, or short skirts.

*The Vatican is closed on certain Catholic festivities, but it could close unexpectedly for unforeseen reasons. In which case, we will make all the necessary changes and plan the itinerary accordingly.

After the tour, your tour driver will escort you back to your cruise ship. The tour program as listed above includes suggested itineraries and sights, and can be easily customized in order to suit your schedule, all your specific interests and needs.
