Travelling by cruise ship and only have one day in Rome? Then make sure you don’t waste a second of it with this tailored private day trip from Civitavecchia. With an engaging local guide to yourself, you'll see the best of the city at your own pace. Marvel at the Colosseum, gaze in awe at the Sistine Chapel, admire famous artwork in the Vatican Museums, and throw a coin in the Trevi Fountain. With luxury transport and skip-the-line tickets, you’ll see more of Rome than you thought possible!

In reality, you'd need a month for us to show you all of the treasures of Rome. But since you're on vacation, leave reality at home and let us show you the famous sites and hidden gems the Eternal City has to offer in a day!  Your Roman day trip begins in the morning when our driver picks you up from your cruise ship at Civitavecchia port. With luxury, air-conditioned transportation, you'll drive into the city with your expert local guide. We've planned a great itinerary for you, but as a private tour you can have your say on the pace of things and any special places you want to see.

Today, your private guide will give you a tour of the mighty Colosseum before taking to the streets of Rome for a walking tour. You'll see famous landmarks including the Trevi Fountain, Piazza Navona, the Spanish Steps, and the ancient Pantheon, and you'll also have free time to enjoy an authentic Roman lunch at one of the city's incredible restaurants (not included). Before returning to your ship, you'll skip the line to enter the Vatican for a guided tour. Your guide will show you the best of the museums, as well as the Sistine Chapel and the incredible St. Peter's Basilica!

Luxury Transportation Around Rome

To make this private tour in Rome super-easy for you, you'll be picked up from your cruise ship in Civitavecchia port and driven around Rome in luxury, climate-controlled vehicle. And don't worry, we'll make sure you get back to the ship in time too! Just relax and let your expert local guide take care of you, while sharing fascinating facts and stories of Rome.

Skip-the-Line Private Colosseum Tour

There are few more awe-inspiring places than the mighty Roman Colosseum, and there's no better way to explore than on a private tour! Originally known as the Flavian Amphitheater, you'll have skip-the-line access to avoid the crowds of tourists waiting to enter. Your expert guide will set the scene for what it felt like to attend the thrilling events that took place inside the arena from epic gladiator fights to public executions held in front of eager crowds of more than 60,000 Romans.

This tour takes you to the first and second tiers of the Colosseum—areas reserved for seating Rome’s most elite classes during the Colosseum’s gladiator games. As you look around and picture what life must have been like here, your guide will enlighten you with intriguing stories of some of the Colosseum’s most gruesome events.

This product includes an entry ticket to the Colosseum + Arena, Forum and Palatine, for which our cost is 18 Euro per person.

Private Rome City Tour

A trip to Rome wouldn't be complete without seeing some of the most famous fountains and piazzas. After being driven into Rome's historic center, it's time to set off on a tour of the city's historic sites. While some central Rome sites can only be reached on foot, your driver will also be nearby if needed! You'll follow your guide to the beautiful Piazza Navona to see the Fountain of Four Rivers, before seeing the outside of the Pantheon (entry inside not included), Rome's iconic dome with an open oculus.

Finally, you'll head to the Trevi Fountain to see what is likely the world's most famous fountain. Remember to bring some coins to make a wish here! Your guide will make sure you know how to do it just right. Along the way, your super-knowledgeable local guide will show you some of Rome's hidden gems to help you get to know the city better.

Free Time for Lunch

You'll have some free time in central Rome to grab a delicious Roman lunch, usually near the Trevi Fountain where there's a good selection of eateries. Lunch isn't included, but your guide can point out some of the best places to eat, depending on your tastes.

Guided Vatican Museums Tour

After driving to the Vatican, you'll skip the long general admission line and start exploring the impressive art collection at the Vatican Museums. Your guide will lead you on through the Vatican Museums, visiting the Candelabra Gallery, Gallery of the Tapestries, and Gallery of Maps. Admire the ancient Roman and Greek statues, the Flemish tapestries created by Raphael's students, and the gorgeous topographical depictions of Italy.

At the height of the Roman Empire, pontiffs rarely left Rome. In order to understand the Italian peninsula without endangering his life, Pope Gregory XIII commissioned 40 huge and meticulous maps to be created for his use. Most of these maps measure more than 15 by 16 feet, and the end result is nothing short of spectacular.

You'll hear the stories behind these treasures from your expert guide as the Vatican secrets are slowly unveiled to you.

While you don't need to wait in the normal line, a shorter security line is still required for entrance. Short delays at the security check may occur during the busiest months of June and July.

Experience Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel

Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel likely rivals the Colosseum as the focal point of this Rome in a day private tour. Until you stand beneath the chapel's frescoes, there’s no way to fully appreciate Michelangelo’s astonishing accomplishment.

The Sistine Chapel is a place of worship, so speaking inside is prohibited. Your guide will explain the significance of Michelangelo’s artwork before entering.

Please note that to enter the Vatican's Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica, both men and women must cover their knees and shoulders. Otherwise, you may be refused entry to this portion of your Vatican tour. We understand the summers in Rome are hot, so a great idea is to bring a shawl/scarf/sweater with you. That way, you can cover your knees and shoulders when necessary.

St. Peter’s Basilica

St. Peter's Basilica is a monumental, ornate church filled with works by some of the most celebrated artists in history. Your guide will take you past the re-entry lines so you can quickly enter this monumental church that attracts millions of visitors each year. Before you enter, your guide will share about the history and construction and give you tips for what to look for once inside such as the Baldacchino, La Pieta, the statue of St. Peter and much more. St. Peter's holds the rank of Major Basilica. Only four exist in the world and all four are located in Rome!

Since the Vatican is closed on Sundays, if you need to do the Shore Excursion on this day, we will contact you for a substitute site.

Everything was perfect…our drivers picked us up at the port and transported us to Rome. There we met our tour leader, Roberta. Roberta was amazing…she was very knowledgeable and told us all about the sites we were seeing; coordinated our lunch with a local restaurant; and ensured the vans were there to pick us up and take us to our next destination…everything was flawless! Roberta and the drivers were absolutely amazing! If you are going to Rome on a cruise ship, I highly recommend you book your tour through The Tour Guy!!

This is an amazing day. Well worth every penny. We took a cruise to Rome & there where places on my bucket list that I had to go to. The Tour Guy made it happen in the short amount of time that we had. It was just three of us for this day trip. The driver picked us up & the port, & along the way we picked up our tour guide. She was fabulous. Being born & raised in Spain she new everything & more. We went to the Trevi Foundation, the Colosseum, a few other stops, had lunch & finished at the Vatican. Front of the line tickets where included which was a must. If I had to do this on my own I wouldn't have been able to in the amount of time we had. The Vatican has 28-30K people a day visiting & the lines are insane. Plus there are lines for everything. With our tour guide we only waited 20 minutes for security check. Same thing in the Colosseum. I am truly thankful for this day. I learned so much history that I wouldn't have from reading a tour guide book on my own. This is the way to travel when you visit places like Rome with little time. I truly didn't feel rushed. Plus I had someone to take our family photos which is a plus. The only negative thing I have to say & it's about The Tour Guy company is their communication. I was told that someone would text me 24 hours in advance with info. I only received email that said your tour starts in 24 hours. I sent 3 emails, a text & called 10 times within 48 hours of my tour (which the line said busy & hug up each time) never heard from anyone. Therefor on my day of my tour I was nervous no one would show up. Now I did speak to the company after I booked my tour to confirm everything. I received email confirmation as well. Though that was over a month before my tour. With that being said I will use The Tour Guy again, it was a fabulous day. My driver was amazing & my tour guide. She was Fabulous.
