Departure Point

Port of Civitavecchia, E840, 00053 Civitavecchia RM, Italy

Departure Time

7:30 AM
When your ship docks at the Civitavecchia cruise port, hop aboard your private air-conditioned vehicle for the drive into Rome, where your shore excursion starts in Vatican City. Meet your private guide, and enter the Vatican Museums with your skip-the-line ticket.

Inside, wander the vast complex of galleries and rooms that house the world’s largest collection of art. Your guide will introduce you to the highlights, including, of course, the Sistine Chapel, where you can gaze in wonder at Michelangelo’s famous ceiling fresco, 'The Creation of Adam.' Then visit neighboring St. Peter’s Basilica (where you’ll also skip the line) to see another famous Michelangelo piece, his 'La Pietà' sculpture, before heading out to St. Peter’s Square.

Next, you’ll be transferred into Rome’s historical center, where you have a break to buy lunch (own expense); your guide can offer recommendations about local restaurants. Then continue your exploration of the city, checking out iconic landmarks like the Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, Piazza Navona, and the Pantheon. You’ll end your tour at the Colosseum, where your skip-the-line ticket once again allows you to go directly inside without waiting in the main entrance queue. Walk along the ancient amphitheater’s main level, and learn about the gory gladiator battles and other events that make up its bloody history.

Your day tour ends with the drive back to Civitavecchia so you can catch your cruise ship. 

Note: Your private guide provides commentary about Rome and its iconic sights throughout the day. If you have any special interests, such as architecture, art, culture or history, please provide this information at the time of booking so your guide can best prepare for your private tour.

The driver was nice although limited in English language. That was ok, we communicated well enough. Our Personal tour guide was outstanding. She explained so much and had so much to show and tell. We really enjoyed the Vatican, the Chapel and the Coliseum. The food was great. Thank you so much. We would love to return to Rome and spend more time. There is so much history.

Our guide was awesome. She got us into sites easily with no lines. She made sure all of my family was well taken care of. We saw all the sites you could hope for in Rome. We learned so much and everything was well organized. I would highly recommend.

We cannot say enough about this tour! Yes, it’s a little on the pricy side but you get what you pay for and we literally did Rome in a day! Our driver picked us up from our cruise ship and drove us to our private guide for the day who was waiting for us at the Vatican. We had skip the line admission for the Vatican, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica. Tatiana was an amazing tour guide who showed us all of the important things and must sees! Then we were off to the Pantheon, lunch, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, and front of the line admission at the Colosseum. We could not have accomplished this much in one day any other way! Totally worth the extra $ if you only have one day in Rome. We had a relaxing, cool and comfortable ride back to our ship in a nice van. Thank you for a great day!

We had an excellent day in Rome! Our tour guide Laura did an excellent job. She is very knowledgable about the city and was able to show us so much in one day! We had no worries about getting back to the ship on time since everything was so well organized. It was very easy for us and we were nervous since it was our first private tour in Europe, but those fears were gone in the capable hands of Laura. We loved the city and appreciate that it was such an awesome experience because of our driver and tour guide!

If we could give 10 stars, we would! Dario was beyond amazing!!! From the first moment we met him, he focused immediately on our expectations and preferences! What a wonderful day we had! Dario had everything set up perfectly so we had no lines, no waiting! We saw all the best of Rome with expert background, history, insider perspective, and humor from Dario! We could not have asked for anything better and have recommended this tour many times since our return. Dario made it the best experience possible, and he also worked extremely well with our driver, Stephan, to ensure everything went smoothly! This experience was priceless and will rank as one of our best travel days ever!

Top rate service! Driver Paulo picked us up on time at the ship's gang plank, careful and safe driver. Tour guide Rossallini was extremely knowledgeable about Rome and able to relay information in a manner we could understand. She was also very good at maneuvering us along our tour route avoiding crowds where possible. Great day in Rome! Will definately use Viator in the future. Sorry if I've mispelled Paulo or Rossallini's names.

This private tour was perfect for our family of 5. Tatiana was a wonderful tour guide. We had a great day. Lunch was tasty at a small restaurant that was very good, and not crowded, with a yummy gelato shop right next door! We walked along the cobblestone streets enjoying our dessert and hearing about the history of Rome. Every aspect of this tour was perfect. We even had headsets so that we could hear Tatiana talk while she was walking ahead of us, or while we were in loud spaces or in crowds. We saw everything you would want to see in Rome in a day! We walked a ton, and were exhausted, but it was worth it!

This excursion was an absolutely incredible experience! From the moment we were picked up at our ship until we were dropped back off, everything was 1st class. Our tour guide Laura was so personable and knowledgeable, absolutely fantastic. She spent time with my wife and I to discuss what we were going to see and, what we could photograph. Her knowledge was amazing. She took us places and showed us things we would never had seen on our own or, most likely on any other tour. The best part of the tour was the personal interaction with her, incredibly, it was just myself, my wife and Laura, so it couldn't get any better. Thank you Laura for showing us an amazing day in Rome..... Hope to tour with you again in the future.... Thank you.....Bill and Wendy

Tatiana was amazing and so knowledgeable. Our only complaint, and it's a big one- our driver was 40 minutes late picking us up Viator's directions to us were that the driver would meet us right off the ship- the driver was told to meet us just inside the port two areas about a 5 minute drive apart. We had to call and then wait for them to get ahold of the driver, and then wait some more when you only have 8 hours in Rome, you want all the time you can get. A general observation, feedback item would be for all tour guides to bring couples/families to favorite/memorable areas for photos first and then go into explanations of the history. Overall, a really great job!
