Get on a round trip coach transfer between Civitavecchia cruise port and Rome, and visit the Eternal City on an open top double-decker hop-on hop-off bus.
The cruise port is located 80 km (approx.) from the center of Rome, so it can be difficult and/or expensive to get to Rome. This package is the perfect option for a convenient pre-arranged transfer to and from Rome and the possibility to get around Rome at your leisure and see all the major landmarks.
Your transfer coach will depart at 9:30 am from Civitavecchia Port (please debark the ship no later than 9:00 am) and will take you to the very center of Rome. The drop off place is near Castel Sant’Angelo by the Supreme Court. It is located a 5-10 minute walk to the nearest Big Bus stop just on the other side of the river, a 10 minute walk to Piazza Navona and a 15 minute walk to Vatican City. Occasionally, there can be a different drop off place at Colosseum, depending on city regulations. Passengers will be advised before the transfer bus departs, so they can plan accordingly.
The single departure time for the return to Civitavecchia Port will be at 4 pm at the same point you were left in the morning, near Castel Sant’Angelo by the Supreme Court (please be at the meeting point 10-15 minutes before the departure). You’ll be then back to the Port of Civitavecchia around 5:15 pm (depending on traffic’s conditions).
