Enjoy a full day of sightseeing in the Italian capital with this private 9-hour shore excursion, including round-trip transportation from the Civitavecchia port.
Travel with your private driver and guide from the port into Rome – a trip of about 90 minutes. Start with a visit to one of Italy's most famous monuments – the Colosseum. Spend 20 minutes walking around the huge amphitheater, seeing the Arch of Constantine and Arch of Titus (entry to Colosseum at own expense).
Continue on to the Circus Maximus, to learn about the chariot races that were once held there. See what remains of the once huge stadium, and admire the Palatine Hill in the distance.
Journey toward the heart of modern Rome via the 'Road of Temples,' enjoying views of the Palatine Hill, Piazza Venezia and the enormous monument to Vittorio Emmanuele II, Italy's first king. Stop for a grand view overlooking the Roman Forum, the former epicenter of a massive empire.
Visit the Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain and Pantheon before taking a break for lunch (own expense). Ask your guide for recommendations, or choose from the many options in the area.
Choose from your after-lunch options to either travel on the famous and historic Appian Way to see ancient Roman catacombs; or to see some of the less-visited parts of central Rome, such as the Campo de' Fiori and the highest viewpoint in the city.
Drive past St Peter's Square for one last photo-op before you're returned to the port at the end of the day.
