Upon your ship’s arrival at the Civitavecchia port, your independent shore excursion starts by meeting your private driver for the journey into Rome. This is your day tour and you can create your own itinerary, so just let your driver know what sights you want to see the most (all entrance fees, food and drinks are at your own expense).
Perhaps visit the Vatican Museums to admire some of the most treasured works of art on Earth, such as Renaissance pieces by Raphael and Michelangelo’s legendary frescoes that adorn the Sistine Chapel, including The Creation of Adam. Walk around St Peter’s Square, and check out St Peter’s Basilica, the largest catholic church in the world, home to more Renaissance art like Michaelangelo’s La Pietà sculpture.
Maybe you want to immerse yourself in Ancient Rome by visiting the Colosseum, Roman Forum, Arch of Constantine and Palatine Hill. Drive by Circus Maximums, and marvel at the imposing design of the Pantheon. For a look at Rome’s most beautiful and romantic attractions, you’ll want to walk through the historical center to find the Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps and Piazza Navona. Don’t forget to take a break to enjoy the most pleasurable of Italian activities—eating and drinking at a sunny sidewalk café.
When your time in Rome is up, rest your feet on the drive back to Civitavecchia.
