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.

Rome in a Day

This tour was excellent. It was very busy but that was our choice because we were on a cruise day and the only way we could get in the Colosseum and The Vatican and a few other main stops was by booking a private tour. Well worth the money!! Our driver and tour guide were amazing.

Rome in a day is possible!

I wasn't sure if it was possible, but we definitely were able to experience Rome in a day! We were picked up on time at our cruise port and met our tour guide in Vatican City. I learned sooo much about the inside stories of the Vatican that I know I would never have learned going on our own. We went to all the big spots without having to find parking, waiting in lines or wearing head phones to hear our guide. Well worth the money! Will use the Roman Guy again!!

Stress free travel

The driver picked us up easily from the port and brought us to meet our guide in Rome. We had transportation throughout, and our our lovely guide explained all of the sites with ease and kept us hanging on her every word. With a tight schedule, both the guide and driver made the most out of the time we had and got us back to the ship on time!
