Using Public Transport and Trains you have to:

  • Take the Port Shuttle Bus to the main port gate
  • Then take ANOTHER bus to the Train Station (or walk 30 minutes!)
  • Wait at the train station for the next commuter train to Rome to arrive
  • Commuter Trains can take about 1 hour 20 minutes to Rome’s Termini Station (with multiple stops along the way)
  • From the Train Station in Rome you will need ADDITIONAL Metros and Buses to get to your first destination.

Doing ALL this yourself relying on public transportation can take up to 3 HOURS!

With our Door to Door service, you will be dropped off right at your FIRST location you plan to visit… and we will pick you up at your LAST location you plan to visit – an effortless experience.

With public transportation there would be quite a bit of walking and pre planning required to get to the right bus or metro stop to take you to the train station, and then take the correct train to Civitavecchia, from where you will have to either walk to the port gate (or take a local bus), and then a bus shuttle back to your ship.

With us, you do NOT have to worry about missing your train, not knowing how to get to / from the train station, arriving too late to your ship waiting for public transport and trains to arrive…. Or missing out on your once in a lifetime opportunity to visit Rome if you are unlucky to experience a train and public transportation strike and end up stuck at the port all day.

TIPS TO ENJOY ANCIENT ROME:

Use same tickets as Colosseum to visit Roman Forum. (Be sure to purchase your Colosseum Tickets in advance to avoid long ticket lines!)

 

WATCH: The Roman Forum: DYI Rome Tour from Civitavecchia Cruise Ship: Ancient Rome and Squares

 

If you aren’t able to obtain advance tickets for the Colosseum, you may visit the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill (OR purchase your tickets from Roman Forum, and see if the regular open ticket lines are short enough for you to enter the monument) 

Also remember, the Colosseum has security checkpoints and ALL visitors must first clear security prior to entering. This can create additional wait times and lines to enter.

If you wish to have MORE TIME to SEE MORE of Rome, you can opt for just seeing the Colosseum from the outside, and enjoy the Roman Forum instead.

 

Stroll along Via dei Fori Imperiali to Piazza Venezia.

Be sure to look left and right as you walk along the pedestrian friendly Via dei Fori Imperiali as it’s lined with various ancient Roman forums.

The most famous is Trajan’s Forum that features the famous Trajan’s Column, that commemorates Trajan’s victorious campaign against the Dacians (modern day Romania),  and Trajan’s Market nearby.
