Depart from Civitavecchia with your private driver and discover the best sites in Rome in a single day. Right after stepping off your cruise ship, you'll find your private driver waiting for you: in the course of the experience, you'll get to explore both the Vatican and the Colosseum. Your driver will take care of your private group during the various transfers and take you back to the port in time for boarding at the end of the tour.
You'll be dropped off at Colosseum where you will meet your tour guide. After admiring the Arch of Constantine, you'll enter the Coliseum, a huge and amazing feat of engineering. Next, you'll proceed inside the archaeological site of the Roman Forum, the commercial center of Ancient Rome: as you visit, you'll feel as if you've traveled back in time during the Imperial age of Rome. You'll also get to take in the amazing view of the city over the Circus Maximum from the Palatine hill and enjoy a typical lunch in a local restaurant.
After lunch, you'll be lead to the Vatican Museums, where you'll admire an infinite number of masterpieces by Bernini, Raphael, Michelangelo, Botticelli, Perugino, Pinturicchio and many others. The unmissable Sistine Chapel and its sublime 'Last Judgment' by Michelangelo, are surely the real top attraction. With our guide, you will enter the 16th century Saint Peter Basilica, through a special door. Here you can enjoy the amazing 'Pietà' by Michelangelo, as well as other highlights. Just the size of the Basilica itself, the largest in the world, will not fail to amaze you. At the end of the tour, you'll be left in the square with the curved immense colonnades of St. Peter’s Square insight, and the view of the Pope’s Balcony.
Once your day in Rome is over, your guide will take you back to your driver and you'll head back to Civitavecchia and your cruise ship.
