Don't want to be stuck with a group leader for your entire excursion? Explore at your own pace the magnificent Eternal City of Rome. You'll have plenty of free time to explore on your own on this Rome sightseeing shore excursion. Discover a variety of sights, sounds, and history. This makes for an exciting day that you'll always remember.

You can start this fun-filled Rome sightseeing excursion day by meeting with your friendly shore excursion staff at the transportation hub near the cruise port. Hop onboard comfortable transportation with large viewing windows and enjoy a scenic 1-hour drive to Rome from your port in Civitavecchia. During the ride, your shore excursion leader will provide information about the history, culture, and sites of interest. This excursion is designed to give guests the most freedom to explore. The transportation will take you to the central points and the leader will provide you with a map, then off you go!

Your transportation will park close to the Vatican and St. Peter's Square and you'll have an approximately 1.5-hour stop. Your excursion leader will take you on foot from the ancient fortress to Castel Sant'Angelo to St. Peter's Square and then you can explore on your own. The square was designed and built by Bernini approximately 1656-1667 and was designed to welcome all. Here you can visit the famous St. Peter's Basilica take some beautiful pictures of the Egyptian obelisk or walk to Castel Sant'Angelo which is the mausoleum of Roman Emperor Hadrian. Make sure to return to your meeting point on time to take the bus and continue with your route. Please note that entrance fees to view any of the sights during your excursion day are not included. Guests should check with the excursion staff to see if there will be time due to possible long lines and wait times.

Once back on board, your transportation will drive along the Tiber River for some amazing panoramic views. You'll pass Tiber Island, a boat-shaped island that has been connected with the city since antiquity. You'll also spot the Pyramid of Cestious, one of the best-preserved ancient buildings in Rome. You'll also have glimpses of the famous Colosseum, the Papal Archbasilica of St. John in Lateran, the Basilica of Saint Mary Major, the Circus Maximum, and the Mouth of the Truth.

Your Civitavecchia Panoramic Rome City Sightseeing Excursion Day is not over yet. When your transportation reaches the baroque center of Rome, it will drop you off by the Theatre of Marcellus where you will walk to Venice Square and the Trevi Fountain. Don't forget to throw a coin in the fountain to ensure your future return to Rome! At this point, you can continue exploring the area or take a break and have some authentic Italian lunch (your excursion staff can give you their top suggestions for places to grab a bite to eat).

Nearby is the Pantheon and Navona Square if you wish to explore on your own. The baroque architecture of the square would captivate you. You would see the Fountain of the Four Rivers located at the center of the square, the church of St. Agnes, and magnificent palaces such as the Braschi Palace or Lancellotti Palace.

At the end of your Civitavecchia Panoramic Rome City Sightseeing Excursion, you will meet back at your transportation for the return trip back to your Civitavecchia cruise port.

Be prepared for a lot of walking
     3/5  (Visited on November 2022)
This tour shared a bus with people doing Rome on their own. The bus was full, but only eight people were doing the Panoramic tour. Oddly, if you wanted to have time walking around the area of the Colosseum you needed to pay an additional 5 euros (payable on the bus) which gets you 30 minutes on the ground near the Colosseum. There is some touring by bus, but much of it is walking. We walked approximately four miles including a considerable amount uphill.

Rome is lovely.

Did this Rome on your Own tour which was excellent. Good transport (brand new vehicles), lots of info en route and our driver was punctual and very professional. Rome is lovely! We'd heard that it is always crowded but it wasn't. We loved walking around Rome and visited the Colosseum on our own. We need to go back and spend a week!

     5/5  (Visited on April 2018)
This was a great value excursion. I liked how it included the guidance and free time to explore. Cozy air-conditioned transport and a terrific guide. So many wonderful sights and history. It was our first time cruising in Italy and definitely not our last. We feel we know hae references for our futures cruises. We really enjoyed exploring St. Peter's Square and admiring the outdoor galleries, street artists and this is where we sat down to enjoy some dinner. Shore Excursioneer made the booking process easy and assigned us a great tour operator. We will be sure to book with through em again.
