Shore Excursions From Civitavecchia

Rome in a Day Tour

tour description

Visit Rome in a day, on the way to the Eternal City!

From Civitavecchia Port or from your hotel or accommodation, either in Rome or its sourroundings, you'll be taken for your Rome in a Day Tour, starting from the Celia Hill, one of the Seven Hills on which Rome was founded and one of the oldest Roman neighbourhoods. As the name suggests (in Ancient Rome, CAELIUS was the name of an important family and comes from the Latin "CAELUM", which means "sky"), you will be given a chance to catch the scenic view of the great Square of the Colosseum from above.

This is the very suggestive heart of the Ancient Rome. After a visit inside the Flavian Amphitheater (Amphitheatrum Flavium), and after hearing of its great history about Naumachias (a Latin word taken from Greek, which means naval battles) and Gladiators (from Latin "GLAUDIUS", swordsman), your Rome in a day tour will continue moving towards Piazza Venezia (the Venetian Square) along Via dei Fori Imperiali, to stop at the Pantheon, an amazing monument commissioned by Marcus Agrippa during the reign of Imperator Augustus, as a temple consacrated to all gods, whose interior is really magic and unique. Each corner of the CAPUT MUNDI has its own history, and with our private guided tours in Rome you'll get to know every detail of it: where Julius Cesar was murdered, the stories of the Basilica of Santa Maria Sopra Minerva and the Elephant's Obelisk. Then, you'll climb the Spanish Steps and move along the renown Via Condotti. And according to tradition, if you wish to come back to Rome don't forget to toss a coin into Trevi Fountain!

The afternoon will be all for the Vatican tour, the world's richest museum, where your experience, even a religious experience, will be overwhelming and unforgettable. No Rome in a day tour can be considered achieved without a visit to this amazing city, which also includes St. Peter's Basilica, the largest church in the world and cradle of Christianity, and the Sistine Chapel, with its Renaissance architecture and frescoes by Michelangelo, Sandro Botticelli, Pietro Perugino, Pinturicchio, and others. The most famous is the large fresco depicting The Last Judgment  by Michelangelo in the Sistine Chapel ceiling.

The Rome in a day tour really is a trip through the centuries, Art and History and it will be completed by a glimpse of the City from a spectacular viewpoint up the Janiculum Hill.
