Useful information for shore excursions in and around Rome

We have compiled the following tips for sightseeing in Rome and around the cruise port of Civitavecchia.

Sights on a Rome cruise excursion

Rome is a “must” for every cruise passenger on the route in the western Mediterranean. Those who have never been to the “eternal city” should take the opportunity to explore this fascinating metropolis.

Numerous attractions such as the Forum Romanum, the Colosseum and St. Peter’s Basilica as well as masterpieces by the Renaissance artists Michelangelo, Bernini, Raphael and many more are waiting to be visited.

Among them, the Colosseum is a particular highlight. It was the scene of the famous gladiator fights in ancient Rome and is located in the immediate vicinity of the Forum Romanum, another place you should visit in Rome. The central square of ancient Rome contains numerous ruins of ancient Roman temples.

You will also find information on the most important sights on the page “Civitavecchia/Rome on your own“.

Recommendation for Rome cruise excursions

The metropolis of Rome and Civitavecchia, the port where your cruise ship docks, are separated by a longer distance. Therefore a shore excursion to Rome on your own is not recommended. The guided version is more suitable here, as you will be picked up directly from the ship and taken to the sights.

For all those interested in Rome, the nine-hour city tour of Rome including a tour of the Colosseum is an all-round package of the metropolis, which gives a rich impression of the venerable city and does not leave out any important sights.

But even with a shorter journey and less effort, there is the possibility to take a time travel into the past. The famous medieval village of Tarquina is only 12.4 miles from Civitavecchia and has a sacred tomb and the exciting National Museum.

Those who associate Italy with pleasure and culinary delights will be well advised to take a trip to Tuscania with wine tasting. In this village, which goes back a long way in history, you will visit a typical Italian farmhouse and then taste the locally produced wines.
