If you are staying in Rome pre cruise and wish to make the most of your morning in Rome before you depart for Civitavecchia, we offer our guests a half day Pre-Cruise Rome tour followed by a transfer to Civitavecchia.
Your tour begins at 8:00 AM with your pick up at your hotel accommodation in Rome. At approximately 1:00 PM you will depart for Civitavecchia with a 2:30 PM estimated arrival at your ship.
There is no need to worry about your luggage as your luggage will travel safely with you, and upon arriving in Civitavecchia, you and your luggage will be conveniently delivered right on the pier next to your ship for quick and easy embarkation.
Our half day Rome Pre-Cruise tour and Transfer includes a visit to the Colosseum, Rome’s iconic symbol and one of the most famous monuments in Rome.
Another Ancient Roman masterpiece is the Pantheon, a former pagan temple dedicated to all gods and later transformed into a Christian church. The Pantheon is the oldest standing domed structure in Rome, and remarkably in continuous use for 2,000 years!
Upon entering, you can’t help but look up at the formidable dome topped with an oculus that opens up to the skies and nature’s elements.
Rome is renown for its fabulous squares, so a visit to the Trevi Fountain and the Spanish Steps are not to be missed!
The Trevi Fountain (Fontana di Trevi in Italian) is the largest Baroque fountain in Rome and one of the most well recognized in the world appearing in many classic films such as Three Coins in A Fountain and La Dolce Vita.
Millions of visitors each year follow the timeless tradition of tossing a coin with the right hand over the left shoulder into the Trevi Fountain to ensure a future return to the Eternal City. Not sure if it works? Just ask the return visitors!
The Spanish Steps (Piazza di Spagna) is an elegant stairway that connects the square below and its Fountain of the Old Boat to the Trinita dei Monti church on top.
Picturesque and world famous, the Spanish Steps was also featured in the classic movie Roman Holiday (Vacanze Romane) with Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck.
At the end of your Rome Pre-Cruise Tour you will begin your transfer journey out of Rome and through the countryside to Civitavecchia to embark on your new adventure!

How to Pre-Purchase your Entry Tickets.
*** Please purchase your Colosseum No-Line tickets here in advance for currently 16 Euros per person in order to avoid lengthy queues. If you are traveling from United States, please select "Stati Uniti" when asked to choose your country of origin.
Please note that there is a security check point at the Colosseum that applies to all visitors, including the No Line Ticket holders. The length of the wait time varies, so plan accordingly, and expect delays. To avoid potentially long security lines of 1 hour or more, we suggest 8:00 AM pick up. You also have the option to use your Colosseum tickets to visit the Roman Forum instead should you encounter lengthy security wait times.
Your chauffeur is not a licensed tour guide, therefore s/he is prohibited by law to guide guests on foot to sightsee away from the vehicle. Your driver will remain with the vehicle while you sightsee. Your Chauffeur will drop you off as close to various sites as possible in accordance to local traffic regulations that often prohibit vehicles from stopping too close to monuments and squares.
If you are pleased with the service you receive from your chauffeur, 10-15% gratuity is greatly appreciated and customary.
Please wear comfortable shoes and clothing.
It is recommended to wear sunscreen and sunglasses during the summer months.
Please note that vehicles can accommodate up to 7-8 standard checked in suitcases and up to 7-8 carry on cases. If you are traveling with additional luggage please advise in advance so we can offer suggestions that best serve your needs.
