Food is excellent in Ceri, and the family owned restaurants here draw in many locals who travel to Ceri from nearby towns and cities to enjoy the atmosphere and the delicious cuisine.

After lunch you will be driven to Civitavechia where you will be delivered by your chauffeur right on the pier next to your ship for quick and easy embarkation.
