This shore excursion begins in the Civitavecchia port right in front of your cruise ship, where a professional driver will be waiting for you. Sit down and relax as he will drive 60 miles on the highway to Rome where you'll enjoy the Italian countryside in a comfortable Mercedes sedan/minivan.
After entering the city walls you'll reach the old center of Rome where many gems are hidden behind the beautiful ancient buildings. Your private driver-guide will provide significant commentary along the way and in base of your choices you'll be dropped off and picked up in front of the monuments.
For the Colosseum and Vatican's Museums, we advise you to buy special tickets from the official websites in order to skip the lines which during the touristic season can hold huge crowds for 2-3 hours under the sun. Being in an opened air museum we invite you to experience 2000 years of architectural wonders like Piazza Navona, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, Piazza del Popolo, Pantheon, Piazza Campo de' Fiori, Circus Maximus, Campidoglio, Imperial Forums, etc. Your driver will be happy to give you tips about places to eat, to have a drink, a gelato, coffee bars, toilets etc. At the end of an amazing experience, you can sit back and relax as we guarantee you'll be taken back to the ship in time for departure and with great memories that the group tours will never offer.
