Tour Description

Rome and Vatican Shore Trip is the best way to enjoy a different and relaxing day during your cruise! One of our English-speaking drivers will be waiting for you with car or minivan as you dock at Civitavecchia harbour. Leave all the stress behind from the very first moments of your tour and just have a good time!

From Civitavecchia port to Rome city center it will take approximately a hour and a half. Our private driver will immediately bring you to the Vatican Museums. Here, you will meet your licensed guide for a 5 hour private tour around the most important highlights of the Vatican. Do not miss the opportunity to be amazed by the stunning ceiling of the Sistine Chapel with Michelangelo’s Last Judgment or the beautiful St.Peter’s Basilica.

The tours continues by merging yourself into Ancient Rome through the iconic Colosseum, and an outdoor view of the ancient Roman Forum.

Then you will go to the famous Pantheon… Have you ever wondered why it has a holed ceiling? Thanks to your guide, you will know everything about it!
Unfortunately, the time with your private guide ends here. Anyway, no worries. The shore trip to Rome continues with your private English-speaking driver to bring you around and discover other highlights of Rome, such as Navona Square, Trevi Fountain or Spanish Steps.
If you have your kids with you, tell us! We can provide child-friendly guides to make the tour the most suitable and enjoyable for every member of the family.
Each tour includes a full-day private driver and 5 hours guided tour with a private guide. You will also get special pre-purchased skip-the-line tickets for both Vatican and Colosseum to avoid standing in line and maximise your time in Rome.

Even if you are staying for a short time, Shore trips are the best way for cruisers to take advantage of your stay in Rome!

Tour's Notes

VATICAN TOUR, PLEASE NOTE: in case the Basilica of St. Peter is closed for religious functions, you will spend longer time in the Vatican galleries with your private guide. The Basilica is a Church and as such the Vatican can decide to use it for religious functions without notice.

VATICAN DRESS CODE: Please must make sure you cover your knees and shoulders. Entry might be refused in the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Church, if you fail to follow the Vatican’s dress code.

Please note that, for disabled visitors with certified invalidity of more than 74%, the Vatican Museums offers free entry that is extended to a companion for visitors who are not self-sufficient. To benefit from this, make sure you mention it at the time of booking so that our staff may handle your request.

COLOSSEUM TOUR, PLEASE NOTE: Please make sure you don’t have pointed big umbrellas and knives of any size with you. Liquids are allowed but only if in plastic bottles. Remember that you can refill your containers in the fountains inside the Colosseum.
