Civitavecchia Shore Excursion: Rome in One Day Sightseeing Tour
Tour description provided by Viator
See the very best of Rome on a full-day shore excursion! When your cruise ship docks in Civitavecchia Port, head into the city with your expert guide to see all the top Rome attractions and take lunch at a popular local restaurant. Enjoy skip-the-line entry to the Vatican Museums, St Peter's Basilica and the Rome Colosseum, and see Rome at its very best!
At the Civitavecchia cruise port, hop on board your air-conditioned coach and head into Rome for your full-day Rome sightseeing tour. First stop is Vatican City, and you'll be whisked past the bustling crowds and into the world-famous Vatican Museums with your skip-the-line admission ticket. Inside, tour one of the world's greatest private art collections with your guide.
The highlight of any Vatican Museums tour is undoubtedly the Sistine Chapel, home to Michelangelo's famous painting, The Last Judgment. Having explained the masterpieces before entering, your guide will let you explore independently so you can interpret these paintings yourself. Continue to St Peter's Basilica for a skip-the-line tour around this unforgettable site where St Peter the Apostle is said to be buried.
After stopping for roughly two hours to enjoy an authentic Italian lunch of antipasti, a main course and wine, you'll head onto the Colosseum. Every day but Wednesday (when it is closed to the public due to the Papal Audience) we’ll finish our Vatican tour in St. Peter’s Basilica (skipping the long lines here too) and St. Peter’s Square.
Enjoy privileged, skip-the-line entry and head inside to explore the fascinating ruin while your expert guide explains its bloody past. Hear how the Roman gladiators fought each other to their deaths, and see where crowds once gleefully cheered. Then head back to port!
