The Civitavecchia Port is only a little over an hour drive from the center of Rome, one of the most incredible cities in Italy in terms of history, art and sightseeing. Your local driver will come to pick you up directly at your dock after disembarking from your cruise ship.

This Rome private tour, during which you will have the possibility to see almost all the top sights in Rome, is an amazing overview of both Ancient and Baroque Rome – you will be amazed at how much of city you can see in just a one-day private trip to Rome.

Your first sites to see will be the Porta San Paolo, the ancient Aurelian wall, and the Pyramid of Cestius. Now it is time for your first stop, the incredible Colosseum. After taking some photos from the outside, your driver will give you your skip-the-lines tickets with specified entrance time to experience the most important site of Ancient Rome for yourselves from inside.

Don’t miss a quick look at the Constatine Arch and perhaps a quick stroll through the Forum, also included on your entrance ticket.
After your private Colosseum tour, you will meet back up with your driver to go past the Terme di Carcalla, the second largest Roman baths. The site is famous among lyrical music lovers because during summertime the site is used as an open opera theatre.

Pavarotti and the Three Tenors organized their first concert together from the summer stage in the Baths of Caracalla. Next your driver will stop for a quick photo opportunity at a nearby terrace.

After a very short drive, you will reach the Aventino hill, which is one of the famous Seven Hills of ancient Rome. On this hill next to the early Christian Church of Sant’Anselmo at the gated entrance to the Villa of the Knights of Malta it is possible to look through the keyhole to get one of the most impressive views of the cupola of St. Peter’s Basilica. This site is called the Buco di Roma, Roman Hole, in a scene in the film Roman Holidays with Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn.

After crossing the elegant Aventine Hill streets lined with luxury condominiums and villas, including the American Embassy to the Holy See, you will reach a panoramic terrace looking out over the Circus Maximus.
Here a photo stop is a must, as beyond the ancient horse racetrack below you will see the Imperial Palaces located on Palatine Hill.

At the bottom of Aventine Hill, around the Foro Boario, you can admire several Pagan temples dedicated to Hercules and Portunus, which were later converted to Christian Churches. Then across from the Orthodox church of Sant’Andrea in Cosmedin you can try your luck by putting your hand in the famous Bocca della Verità, Mouth of Truth, which was also included in the Roman holidays film scenes.

Next your driver will take you at the bottom of Campidoglio Hill, and from here a terrace overlooking the Foro Romano, Roman Forum. From this point, you will cross the pedestrian square in front of Palazzo Senatorio, the Roman City Hall, designed by Michelangelo and then you will take the staircase to the meeting point with your vehicle and driver.

Your Rome private tour will continue to Piazza Venezia for a brief stop to admire the Vittoriano, the largest monument in Rome. From here you will also see Palazzo Venezia, the one-time headquarters of Mussolini, Palazzo Bonaparte, Napoleon’s residence in Rome, and Trajan’s Column and Forum. It’s time for a break from sightseeing, so your driver will take you to a nice local restaurant for lunch. Be sure to try the delicious Roman artichokes!

After lunch, it is time to continue your Rome day tour for Baroque masterpieces, stopping in the many squares. First up is the Trevi Fountain where you can stop for photos and of course throw a coin in the fountain as is the custom if you want to return someday to Rome! The Spanish Steps are not far away, with the famous shopping street Via Condotti and then a maze of streets leading to the Pantheon.

The Pantheon is one of the most important sites from antiquity still standing with the original dome that was studied as an example of architecture by Brunelleschi and Michelangelo.
From here, you will head through Piazza Navona, with its elliptic square built over the ruins of the ancient Domitian Stadium and one of Bernini’s most celebrated works called Fontana dei Fiumi.

There is time for just one more stop, in front of St. Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City, where you can stop for photos and perhaps a look inside, depending on the lines. Your driver will now return you to your dock in the port of Civitavecchia with plenty of time before your cruise ship departs.
