This Post Cruise Rome Tour is designed to provide our cruising guests the option of enjoying the best of Rome in a day starting from Civitavecchia cruise port and ending at your Rome hotel accommodation.

Make the most of your disembarkation day with an exciting overview of the Eternal City visiting ancient monuments, famous squares, and unforgettable museums and churches.

Post Cruise Tours are fun, convenient and stress-free!  Your professional English-speaking Tour Chauffeur will meet you inside the Port of Civitavecchia on the Pier next to your Cruise Ship holding a sign with your name at 7:30 AM. Your tour will conclude with your arrival back to your hotel at approximately 4:30 PM. Your luggage will travel with you inside your vehicle from Port to Hotel.

Your Post Cruise Rome Tour begins with a relaxing drive through the countryside from Civitavecchia to Rome.


A stop in Colosseum Square will reward you with an outside view of Rome’s most iconic symbol and the world’s most famous ancient amphitheater: the Colosseum!


This ancient Roman wonder was built in 79 AD and was initially the Flavian Amphitheater after the family of Emperor Vespasian who commissioned the amphitheater to be built.

The name Colosseum is believed to have originated from the colossal bronze statue of Emperor Nero that was erected next to the amphitheater.

As you stroll through Colosseum Square, you will also see the impressive Arch of Constantine erected in 315 AD to commemorate Emperor Constantine’s victory over Emperor Maxentius at the Battle of Milvian Bridge in 312 AD.

If you enjoy photography, be sure to capture the Colosseum from different angles as you stroll through Colosseum Square for dramatically different views of this magnificent monument.



You will drive nearby to the grand Piazza Venezia with its imposing white marble monument dedicated to King Vittorio Emanuele II. Nicknamed the “wedding cake”, the monument is one of the most recognizable buildings in Rome and the designated place for the eternal flame of the tomb of the unknown soldier.

Next to the Vittorio Emanuele monument is Capitoline Hill with a special spot where you will enjoy the most spectacular overview of the Roman ForumPalatine Hill behind it, and the Colosseum in the distance. This view of Ancient Rome is one of the most picturesque in Rome, so be sure to bring your camera with you.



From here your Post Cruise Rome Tour continues with visits to Rome’s famous piazzas: Piazza della Rotonda, Piazza Navona, the Trevi Fountain, and the Spanish Steps.


Piazza della Rotonda Post Cruise Best of Rome Tour from Civitavecchia to Rome Chauffeur


Prepare to be enchanted by the vibrant energy of Piazza della Rotonda, a square teeming with life, waiting for you to explore its wonders. At its core, an impressive fountain adorned with a striking obelisk stands tall, invoking a sense of magnificence and echoing the passages of history.

Gaze in awe at the supreme architectural masterpiece that reigns over the square—the Pantheon

Take a leisurely stroll through Piazza della Rotonda, embraced by pastel-colored historic buildings that house lively open-air cafes. Venture behind the circular Pantheon, and discover the Basilica of Santa Maria Sopra Minerva with Bernini’s statue of an elephant carrying an Egyptian obelisk. Delight in browsing inviting shops or indulge in a delectable gelato along the way.

  • IMPORTANT:  A visit inside the Pantheon is not included in this tour due to the difficulty of obtaining restrictive time slot tickets and potentially long entry lines that would impact your opportunity to enjoy all the other sites on this tour.


Piazza Navona Post Cruise Best of Rome Tour from Civitavecchia Rome Chauffeur


Piazza Navona is a truly remarkable square built atop the ancient Roman Stadium of Emperor Domitian in the 1st century AD, where thrilling competitive games once took place. The oblong shape of the square echoes the outline of the historic stadium and is embraced by magnificent palazzi and the striking church of Sant'Agnese in Agone.

Piazza Navona is also adorned with three extraordinary fountains. At the heart of the square stands the most significant fountain: Bernini's Fountain of the Four Rivers (Fontana del Quattro Fiumi). This mesmerizing fountain symbolizes the four great rivers of the Renaissance Era, representing Africa, Europe, Asia, and the Americas: the Nile River, the Danube River, the Ganges River, and the Rio del la Plata River, respectively. Crowned by a replica of an Egyptian obelisk embellished with the emblem of the Pamphili family, this fountain is a sight to behold.

Allow yourself to be transported through time as you explore the captivating charms of Piazza Navona.



The Trevi Fountain has been featured in many films such as La Dolce Vita and Three Coins In A Fountain, making it one of the most well-recognized fountains in Rome!

No visit to Rome is complete without a visit to this Baroque masterpiece with gushing water and nautical sculptures. And be sure to follow tradition and throw a coin over your shoulder with a wish for a return visit to the Eternal City.
