Shore excursions

The drive to Rome lasts 1 to 1 ½ hours depending on traffic.

Upon arrival in Rome you will have a driving tour conducted in English by your driver and walk around on your own while he waits for you.

Accompanied by your driver you will be able to see many different sites and monuments of Rome which would be impossible for you to accomplish alone in one day. A driver knows his city and can suggest where to eat the best spaghetti dish or Italian pizza, where to have the best Italian gelato, or where to buy the latest pair of Italian leather shoes... A driver knows the best spots where to stop to enjoy the best panoramas of the city... Your driver might be the first Italian person you talk to and he will be fun to be with.

4:30 PM you and your driver will leave Rome and be at your ship in Civitavecchia at around 5:30/6:00 PM.

OPTION 2

An English speaking driver will pick you up at your ship in Civitavecchia at 8:00 AM (or any other time you will indicate).

The drive to Rome lasts 1 to 1 ½ hours depending on traffic.

Upon arrival in Rome you will meet the tour guide whom we have reserved for you. You will still have your driver to transport you to the different sites.

With a tour guide you will be able to go more into depth and concentrate on the cultural aspects of Rome, i.e. you will do one or more museums tours with her/him and you will go into several churches and understand how centuries overlap in the Eternal City and have evolved into the present city.

At 4:30 PM, after saying good-bye to your tour guide, your driver will take you back to Civitavecchia. You will be at your ship at around 5:30/6:00 PM.
