Rome certainly wasn’t built in a day, but you can see the best of Rome in a single day on our Post-Cruise Rome Tour!

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 you will continue on to the Pantheon: the ancient Roman pagan temple dedicated to all gods.

One of the oldest and best-preserved ancient monuments was built in 126 AD, but it has been in continuous use throughout history and in 7th century, it was converted into the church dedicated to Saint Mary and the Martyrs.

Some of Italy’s most illustrious figures are buried here, and you can see the tombs of King Vittorio Emanuele IIKing Umberto I and Queen Margherita, and the famous Renaissance artist Raphael.

Your eyes will be drawn immediately to the massive coffered dome with the oculus in the center, providing light and ventilation. The oculus has always been open to the elements, and when it rains the water drains below the floor through a drainage system. 

The Pantheon requires Time-Slot Tickets to visit on weekends.

As the Pantheon is a popular attraction, you might experience some wait times to enter due to crowd controls.  For weekend tours, reservations are required to visit the Pantheon. We can take care of that for you on our tour.




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

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.

By now it’s time for lunch where you will have free time to enjoy local specialties according to your taste at a local Italian ristorante or trattoria.


After lunch, you will visit the smallest state in the world: the Vatican!

On your visit to Vatican Museums where you’ll walk through spectacular halls covered in opulent works of art, displays of masterpieces from the Classical Eras to Modern times

You will see the famous sculpture of Laocoon that was the masterpiece for which the Vatican museum was founded by Pope Julius II in early 16th century.

You won’t want to miss the Cortile del Belvedere with their world renown classical sculptures, the Raphael Rooms featuring the “School of Athens”, the Gallery of the Maps, the Flemish Tapestry Room...and then the Sistine Chapel with Michelangelo’s finest work: the Sistine Ceiling and the Last Judgment.

* IMPORTANT REGARDING THE VATICAN: For a few years the Vatican allows access to St Peter's Basilica from inside the Sistine Chapel only to guests accompanied by a Licensed Tour Guide, with an extra admission fee. Self Touring visitors are required to exit the Museums, meet their chauffeurs outside to be driven near St Peter's Square where they may enter St Peter's Basilica from the square entrance... AFTER clearning security.  During normal busy tourist months, the security lines to enter the Basilica can be quite long (up to 1 hour sometimes).  Due to the unpredictably long security lines, a visit to St Peter's Basilica CANNOT BE GUARANTEED without a Licensed Tour Guide.

If self touring, you may try to acess the Basilica through St Peter's Square, and extend your tour time if need to allow you the additional time needed to visit the Basilica.

For your enjoyment of the Vatican, we strongly recommend reserving a LICENSED TOUR GUIDE for your Vatican Visit that will include the Vatican Museums highlights, Sistine Chapel and St Peter's Basilica.

* The Vatican Museums are CLOSED on Sundays,  not possible to visit on "Free Last Sunday" of each month due to extremely long lines due to No Tickets Required

 When the Vatican Museums are CLOSED or not possible to visit, you may SUBSTITUTE the Vatican with other sites in Rome. We are happy to offer suggestions!

This marks the end of your Post-Cruise Rome tour. After a fun filled day in Rome, your chauffeur will take you to your hotel accommodation.

Thank you for choosing Rome Chauffeur private tour services. We look forward to meeting you and showing you Italy!
