You'll want to fill it up, when you learn about our world famous Colosseum Underground Tour!
We will be on our feet all day, since there is lots to see.
Your private driver will pick you up from the port of Civitavecchia and bring you to Rome through one of the ancient city gates, and then you will meet your expert guide for a day of fun & exploring!
Your Roman adventure will start as you walk into the Colosseum where the secrets of this epic venue will be revealed to you by your guide.
We will give you time to have a lunch break and then we're hitting the road again since there is so much more to see, including the great Pantheon, still standing strong since the 1st Century AD!
You only have a day to spare in Rome, so make sure you throw a coin into the fountain! Legend has it that you are guaranteed to return to Rome one day.
Learn why this is one of the most popular monuments in town, and why it attracted so many famous artists over the centuries.
You will see a myriad of picturesque squares and piazzas, but few can rival the beauty of piazza Navona!
The popes have spent centuries collecting these precious works. We will make sure to show you the most important ones.
You are not allowed to leave Rome before resting your eyes on the ceiling decorated by Michelangelo! This is also the place where the popes get elected, so you are in a pretty important room.
Before your driver brings you back to the port, you will say good-bye to your guide after visiting the biggest church in Europe!
Among many great works and relics that adorn St. Peter's Basilica, Michelangelo's 'Pietà' statue stands out, and it will leave you breathless!

In reality you would need a month for us to show you all of the hidden treasures of Rome. But since you are on vacation, leave reality at home and let us show you some of the most known (and unknown) sites this awesome city has to offer with
Civitavecchia Shore Excursion: Rome in a Day. You'll begin in the morning when our driver will pick you up from Civitavecchia port and bring you to the center of the Eternal City. You’ll spend the day with our amazing expert tour guide who will show you the marvels that the city has to offer.
We will first take you to the most emblematic monument that Italy has to offer, the Colosseum. But we don’t want to just show you the monument, we want to make it come alive for you - to relive the last moments of a gladiator, to hear the roaring crowd of more than 60,000 people, and to feel the awe that someone whose first time in Rome would have felt at the grandeur and magnificence of the Eternal City.
After learning so much about the ancient world you will be famished, so we will make sure that you eat something and then your Civitavecchia Shore Excursion: Rome in a Day will continue to show you why this is the most beautiful city in the world. We will take you to the Pantheon where you can walk inside of a temple that hasn’t changed in almost 2,000 years, we will also see the famous squares of Piazza Navona and the Spanish Steps and make sure that you throw a coin into the Trevi Fountain so, as the legend says, you will return one day to the Eternal City.
Civitavecchia Shore Excursion: Rome in a Day will finish at the Vatican Museums and The Sistine Chapel & St. Peter’s Basilica, where you will be able to admire the marvels of the smallest country in the world and stand in awe in front of the masterpieces by Raphael, Michelangelo and Bernini. After visiting the Vatican, our driver will bring you back to the port, where you will embark on another journey, bringing with you the memories of Rome.
* We will pick you up from the port, so please contact us upon booking to provide the exact time when you will be allowed to disembark from your ship.** Lunch is not included in the cost of the trip, but we will make sure to recommend an affordable but a great place to eat.*** Since the Vatican is closed on Sundays, if you do the Shore Excursion on this day, we will contact you for a substitute site.**** If you are a group of more than 7 participants, please contact us before booking, as the cost may vary.
At your cruise ship in Citavecchia. Your driver will meet you outside of your ship. He or she will be holding a sign with your name on it. At the end of the day, your driver will safely bring you back to your ship in time.

I was debating doing a tour with our cruise ship or on our own. The cruise tour was more expensive and with more people. The tour with the Roman Guy was less expensive and private. It wasn't cheap but it was well worth it. We had a private driver (Marco) pick us up in Civitavecchia ( port city for Rome) and drive us into Rome. He was great. Very friendly and welcoming. Had cold water bottles for us. Nice touch. First stop was the Colosseum where we met our guide Valentina. Very friendly and knowledgeable both historically and current. Spoke English with an Italian accent! (What did you expect?? ). Next stop was Spanish steps which we arrived at the top and walked down. Very smart and easy on the body. Explained some of the history and stories of the area. We also toured Vatican City as well as the Sistine Chapel and the Trevi fountain. Once we were done Marco picked us up and brought us back to the ship. The best day trip we had while on our cruise. Loved the attention given to us and still less expensive than the tour with the ship. Cannot wait to go back. Enjoy. ..more
