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.

Took the stress out of traveling!
Not taking the cruise line’s shore excursions can be stressful on many levels from worrying about an independent company’s guide and/or driver showing up to choosing a competent guide. The Roman Guy scored top notch on both accounts. From our wonderfully knowledgeable and responsive agent, Kirby, who greeted me almost every morning with an email answering a question from the day before, to the relief we all felt after seeing our name on the sign as we stepped off of the cruise ship. The guide, Enzo, was wonderful, determined to show us “all of Rome” in 4 hours and the driver getting us back to the ship exactly at the time we requested. Kirby not only tailored the tour exactly to our needs, but kept me appraised of every detail along the way. Likewise our driver, Andrea, showed up exactly as arranged on to get us to the ship in time. We will use the Tour Guy/Roman Guy wherever they serve that we travel. Thank you, Roman Guy, for taking a big chunk of worry out of our trip.
Rome was neither built nor burned in a day. However I saw it all.
I found The Roman Guy videos on YouTube and booked a shore excursion. In aligning to my cruise agenda, this private escorted tour hit all the right notes of my first tour of Rome and Vatican City. I was promptly met by my driver Daniela at the port and coordinated to meet my guide Enza Broccoli. Enza's enthusiasm and knowledge was exactly what I was looking for in a guided tour. I was provided a historical overview with special attention to everything thing surrounding me. The gladiator's entrance onto the arena floor of the Colosseum was a nice treat for perspective. The visit to Vatican City and Sistine Chapel were the pinnacle of this tour. Enza provided guidance on the art works, tapestries and important works within the museum and St. Peter's. A professional guide and expert. I was met back to Daniela and was taken back to my ship efficiently for embarkation.
