Cruises through the Mediterranean are wonderful but the limited time at the port can make seeing the best your city visit has to offer a bit stressful – not to mention the added pressure of getting back to your ship on time, so it doesn’t sail off without you. That’s where City Wonders comes in. If you are docking at Civitavecchia and want to see the best and most beautiful sites in Rome, look no further. With our Private, Skip-the-Lines, do-it-all-in-one-day Rome shore excursion, you’ll spend more time seeing and doing with less time standing in lines. We know your vacation time is as priceless as the art and history you want to see, and we’ll make sure you get back to your ship on time every time.

Discover the Vatican City & Sistine Chapel

Your day excursion starts aboard a private air-conditioned car from Civitavecchia. You’ll be driven straight into the religious center of Rome, a tiny country amid a bustling capital – Vatican City. Your dedicated expert, English-speaking guide will greet you upon arrival as you are whisked past the lines with our exclusive Skip-the-Line access. Here, in the seemingly endless corridors of artistic masterpieces and gilded architecture, your guide will escort you through the museums and into the world-renowned Sistine Chapel.

Skip the Line Access at St. Peter's Basilica

Your next experience includes Skip-the-Line access to St. Peter’s Basilica. As you stand in front of the awe-inspiring edifice, your local private tour guide will explain the impressive architecture of this sacred building, as well as the magnificent works housed within it, before you enter and explore the impressive place of worship alone and at your leisure.

From here, your tour heads to the heart of historic Rome where you will have time for an authentic Italian lunch on your own. Your guide will recommend some of the most popular restaurants and cafés in the area, or you can let your taste buds be your guide. The choice is entirely yours.

Uncover More with Our Expert Guides

The best part about opting for a private City Wonders shore excursion is having an experienced, knowledgeable local guide at your beck and call. They’ll be at your side, answering questions and providing you with top recommendations and advice to make the most of your time. Cities like Rome are so diverse and offer so many hidden historical details that going it alone may mean you’ll miss most of them. Your dedicated guide will point out all the nooks and crannies in addition to the most important monuments, spectacular piazzas and photo-worthy fountains in the area. From the Spanish Steps to the Trevi Fountain, the Piazza Navona to the Pantheon, and so much more, this is your chance to see them all in a single day and still get back to your ship in time to set sail.

No-Wait Access to the Colosseum

But that’s not all! No visit to Rome would be complete without this last gem – the Colosseum. Once again you’ll slide right past the crowds with our Skip-the-Line access. Spend more time exploring the rich and gruesome history of this famous (and infamous) monument than waiting in line for it like the area’s other tourists. It’s your vacation time, and it is valuable, irreplaceable really. Make the most of it with City Wonder’s exclusive, Skip-the-Lines, Private Rome in One Day Shore Excursion. There’s just no other comparison.
