Your time in Rome is precious so don't waste your day with an overcrowded cruise ship sponsored excursion. Enjoy a more personal, small group excursion. See the best Rome has to offer with your private driver and private transportation!

This excursion is for up to 8 participants. For larger groups, please see our Civitavecchia Rome and Colosseum with Private Guide Excursion.

The adventure starts at your Civitavecchia cruise ship where you will meet your English speaking driver who serves as your narrator/guide and set out in your air-conditioned transportation for the 80-minute journey to Rome. All along the way and throughout the day, the driver will give you commentary on the sites. On arrival in Rome, take in the view of Palatine Hill, one of the city's famous 7 hills, and once the setting for the royal palace. Below you will see the outline of what was once the Circus Maximus stadium where the chariot races were held.

Situated at the far end of the Capitoline Hill is the Roman Colosseum. Built approximately 70-72 A.D. by Emperor Vespasian, best known for its gladiator games it has been the home to celebrations, sporting events, and bloodshed. You will enjoy 40 minutes of free time to explore this site from the outside. If you want to get inside the Colosseum, the entrance fee is 20 Euros per person to be paid on site. From the upper level, you can gaze over the Arch of Titus and the Roman Forum.

Departing Imperial Rome, you will pass by the Victor Emanuel Monument (due to its unique shape it is also known as the typewriter or the wedding cake) monument as you make your way to the Old Rome. Here you will visit the largest Baroque fountain in the city, the Trevi Fountain. A coined tossed over your shoulder will guarantee your return to Rome, or so legend says.

Your driver will then take you to the Pantheon, a temple to all Ancient Roman gods. The current structure was built by Hadrian around 112 A.D. In its walls are the burial chambers of the painter Raphael, composer Corelli and two of Italy's kings, Vittorio Emanuele II and Umberto I. Umberto's Queen Margherita, who legend says is the namesake of the most popular style of pizza in Italy, is also entombed here.

You will then have approximately 40 minutes of free time on your own to shop, sightsee or grab a quick lunch. Your driver/guide can make recommendations (price of lunch is not included).

After the break, rejoin your transportation and cross the river to visit Vatican City. En-route, you will pass the Castle of the Angels (Castel Sant'Angelo) and Bernini's Bridge of the Angels.

When you arrive at St. Peter's Square, enjoy 45 minutes of free time on your own to explore the square, soak up the atmosphere or do some souvenir shopping. Please note that due to the popularity of St. Peter's Basilica, waiting times to enter the church may be excessive and it will not be do-able during your visit.

At the appointed time and spot, you will regroup with your transportation and head back to your ship pier in Civitavecchia, approximately 80 minutes away.

Please note the sequence of visits may change due to traffic. Anticipate large crowds at all sites with some entrance lines taking over one hour to clear. Transportation will be by smaller vehicle and your driver will give commentary along the way and at each stop.

Rome is a wonderful city, my family and I are very glad we did this excursion. The guide was very knowledgable and friendly. We also had some free time to do whatever we wanted so we took advantage and bought some souvenirs for friends. There was even time for lunch. We really had a great time. Recommended!

My family and I booked this excursion on a private basis since it was less expensive for us, being 8 in total... Our guide, he was very knowledgeable about Roman culture and architecture. The best moment for the majority of us was entering to the Colosseum, you feel so small once inside and when you think of what happened inside it makes you shudder. We also went to St. Peters square and the Trevi fountain, beautiful places... I think everyone should consider visiting Rome once in their life, it holds so much interesting history and charm. Unfortunately we were there just for one day, I am looking forward on going back for at least 5 days.
