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.

Great shore excursion
This was a fantastic way to spend our time ashore. The Roman Guy arranged everything and got us back to our ship in plenty of time. Our guide and driver was informative and it was a great trip overall. We only wish we'd had even more time to spend in Rome!
I threw my coin into the fountain! Fingers crossed I'll return to Rome! Definitely going to have to go on another Roman Guy tour when I do!
Rome in a day!
Love It!! This was an amazing tour. 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.
