What to expect

Discover the glories of the Roman Empire and Vatican City on a full-day guided tour of Rome, with round trip transfers from the cruise terminal at Civitavecchia Port.

Transfer from the port to the city center by luxury minivan. Upon arrival, travel back to the days of the Roman Republic with a skip-the-line guided tour of the Arch of Constantine. Follow in the footsteps of Roman emperors and mighty gladiators on a fast-track guided tour of the Colosseum.

Your guide will provide all the facts about the amphitheater, which was constructed in 72 AD as the centerpiece of the Roman Empire. Walk around the 1st floor for views that emperors and senators once enjoyed.

Next, learn about everyday life in Ancient Rome at the Forum. Hear about the temples and other monuments, including the Arch of Titus, constructed in 82 AD by the Emperor Domitian to commemorate the victories of his brother Titus, including the Siege of Jerusalem in 70 AD.

Ascend Palatine Hill, one of the legendary “7 Hills of Rome,” and imagine how Rome once looked when the hill was the site of the Empire’s imperial baths, gardens, temples and luxury homes of the emperors. After the Ancient tour you will have approximately 1 hour free for lunch, before skipping the long lines to the Vatican Museums.

Discover one of the world’s most impressive collections of art and antiquities, including rooms of ancient sculptures, tapestries, and age-old maps. See Michelangelo’s glorious frescoes in the Sistine Chapel, before going inside St. Peter's Basilica to experience the majesty of one of the most famous religious sites in the Catholic world.

Transfer back to Civitavecchia Port by minibus, with a drop off directly by your cruise ship for your comfort and convenience.
