Shore excursions to Rome from Civitavecchia


Cruise Tours Rome provided by travel agencies based in the capital have become increasingly popular in the last few years. Bus tours into Rome offered by cruise lines themselves are generally very poor and have been described as ‘herding’. Not at all pleasant in the suffocating heat of Rome between the months of July and August. It has become all too common for us to hear tales of woe from customers who are visiting Rome for the second time to take private tours of the Vatican and other sites of historical and archaeological significance in and around the city, having missed most of them first time around on a bus tour from the port of Civitavecchia, arranged by their cruise line or tour operator back home.
