  2. Tour Itinerary

    Day 1 : Civitavecchia Port

    Your private driver will wait for you in front of your cruise ship and will drive you to visit the best attractions in Rome: the Vatican, the Colosseum, the Roman Forum and the Palatine Hill. He 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.


    The driver will drop you off at Colosseum where you will meet your private tour guide. After admiring the incredibly well preserved Arch of Constantine, you will enter the Coliseum, a huge and amazing feat of engineering. Here, 50.000 spectators could quickly find their seats, shaded by a huge awning, and watched cruel fights between gladiators and wild beasts.

    Roman Forum

    After the Colosseum, you will proceed into the archaeological site of the Roman Forum which represented the commercial, legal and administrative center of Ancient Rome. While strolling past ancient ruins of temples and Roman mausoleums, such as the Roman senate and the altar where Julius Caesar's body was cremated, you will literally feel as if you were brought back in time during the Imperial age of Rome. Along the “Sacred Way” in the Roman Forum, your guide will show you where Julius Caesar inaugurated the Imperial Forums in 46 B.C., a focal point of ancient Rome enriched by all Emperors with their own Temples and Houses until A.D. 608.

    Palatine Hill

    The impressive Basilica of Maxentius and the stately Arch of Titus will introduce the panoramic hill of the Palatine, where Emperors lived. It is the most ancient part of Rome, where Romulus founded the “Square Rome”, destined to become the world’s biggest Empire. Augustus, Tiberius, Maxentius and many others decided to build their Palaces here, among the remains of Romulus wall and the huts dating back to 4.000 years. His panoramic position, still offers amazing views on the Eternal City! 

    Just the view of the Circus Maximum from the Palatine Hill is worth the tour. 

    The guide will bring you to a typical Roman restaurant for lunch.

    Vatican Museums

    After lunch, your private driver will lead you to the Vatican Museums, where you will admire an infinite number of masterpieces by Bernini, Raphael, Michelangelo, Botticelli, Perugino, Pinturicchio and other treasures, all incredibly united in this unforgettable visit. The numerous Popes that have lived here continuously enriched it, but the unmissable Sistine Chapel and its sublime “Last Judgment” by Michelangelo are surely the real attraction. Among the galleries, you will surely appreciate the collection of mosaics, ancient Greek and Roman sculptures and the most worthy Raphael Rooms, once the official residence of the Popes. With our guide, you will enter the 16th century Saint Peter's Basilica through a special door. The largest and richest Basilica in the world will welcome you with Michelangelo's "Pietà" and, thanks to its many details, it will be able to amaze you. The last part of the tour will leave you with the embrace of Bernini's immense colonnade at St. Peter's Square and the view of Pope's Balcony.

    NOTE: On Wednesday morning, due to the Papal audience, the Basilica might be closed. In this case, the explanation of it will be done from outside.

    Civitavecchia Port

    Your private driver will take you back to the port in time for your boarding ship.
