The tour from Civitavecchia Port to Rome includes all the following sites:

Rome Colosseum Tour & Roman Forum

Your driver will pick you up at the dock of your Ship at 7:30 and bring you to your private guide. Kick off your Rome shore excursion at the massive Coliseum; fights between gladiators and beasts took place for the pleasure of bloodthirsty Romans. The Rome Colosseum tour continues to the Roman Forum. As you traverse the area, you are walking in the footsteps of Roman Emperors, bringing more than two millennia of history to life.

Palatine

Unlike other tours, our Coliseum tour includes the Palatine. According to ancient legend, Romulus founded Rome on Palatine hill in 753 B.C. Following his actions, the Emperors built their opulent homes for the rest of the civilization to enjoy.

Lunch

Between 1 pm and 2 pm, you will be offered lunch in a selected restaurant, as included in the tour price ( Starter, Main course, and water).

Vatican City & Sistine Chapel

After lunch (included in the price), you will enter the Vatican with your Rome guide. Home to countless Popes, there are few more uplifting sights than this spiritually enriching setting. The unmissable Sistine Chapel, with its sublime “Last Judgment” by Michelangelo, is on top of the list of Rome highlights, as this masterpiece draws crowds from far and wide.

Among the galleries of the Vatican Museums, you will enjoy a unique collection of mosaics, ancient Greek and Roman sculptures, and the magnificent Raphael Rooms, once the Pope’s official residence.

At the end of this private tour package of Rome from Civitavecchia, your driver will bring you back to the port on time for your Ship’s departure.

Remember to cover your knees and shoulders before entering the Sistine Chapel and the Basilica.

Sunday Special: Shorex from Port of Rome

On Sundays and religious holidays, the Vatican city is closed. Due to Shore Excursion’s high request, we designed a Sunday in Rome experience. You will have extra time in a private car in addition to the already included tour of Trevi, Pantheon, Navona, and Spanish Steps! With your guide and driver, you will explore St. Peter’s Square, Castel Sant’ Angelo area, and other marvelous sites like the Capitoline hill; from its top, you enjoy spectacular views over the Forum.

Other info about the “Shorex from Port of Rome” Tour

The Pope may reserve the right to close Sistine Chapel and Basilica without notice. Nevertheless, the Vatican guarantees access to the museums. Our agency always does everything possible to reorganize the visit with other times, to allow all guests to enjoy everything described above. On the contrary, the guide will explain the sites from the outside. It is impossible to bring large backpacks, bags, and large umbrellas into museums and archaeological areas. Handbags, small backpacks, and foldable umbrellas are allowed. Cover your shoulders and knees before entering the Basilica and the Sistine Chapel.
Remember to bring all your belongings with you after every transfer; cars and drivers might change each time.

Ancient Rome area and Vatican Museums visits involve SIGNIFICANT WALKING. Please provide any mobility and wheelchair access requirements. Also, visitors with limited mobility can contact us for special needs, such as wheelchairs or walkers. Please note that the pathway from the Sistine Chapel to St Peter’s Basilica has 50 steps downwards and is not wheelchair accessible. The Roman Forum and Palatine surfaces are uneven, but a considerable portion of the area has wheelchair paths. The tour will continue to the Basilica only if all members of your private group can walk down the stairs and do not have a wheelchair or a walker. If your private group includes participants with reduced mobility, the tour will end without accessing the Basilica. Also, note that other participants in your group will have to push the wheelchair. However, we can add an extra charge for an extra transfer from the Museums’ exit to the Basilica entrance, but we cannot skip the line to enter the Basilica.

Furthermore, a car at your disposal could help if the person with limited mobility needs rest.

We suggest avoiding strollers and using a baby sling instead. The Roman Forum and Palatine surfaces are uneven, but a considerable portion of the area has stroller paths. Like wheelchairs and walkers, strollers are not allowed in the passage from the Sistine Chapel directly to the Basilica ( 50 steps downward ). Your private tour will end without the Basilica visit. We can add an extra charge for an extra transfer from the Museums’ exit to the Basilica entrance, but we cannot avoid staying in line to enter the Basilica.

The car at your disposal helps when you have babies and need to leave their belongings inside it.
