Panoramic Rome Tour for Cruisers Civitavecchia Shore Excurisons Debark Post Cruise tours to Rome in limo RomeCabs


Our Panoramic Rome Tour was created in response to increasing requests from travelers and cruisers who expressed an interest to avoid super crowded places (such as Colosseum and Vatican), and have flexibility without visiting sites that require advance purchased non-refundable tickets at specific time slots.

Panoramic Rome Tour is also a perfect option on the First Sundays of the Month when the Colosseum has Free Entry (and therefore mobbed with visitors taking hours to get through the lines without actual tickets) and Vatican Museums are closed.

Panoramic Rome Tour takes you to visit the Pantheon inside Piazza della Rotonda, enjoy Rome’s lively squares such as Piazza Navona, Spanish Steps, and Trevi Fountain, and visit St Peter’s Square which seems to embrace its visitors for a remarkable glimpse of St Peter’s Basilica from the outside.
