Buongiorno and welcome to Stefano's RomeCabs! The excitement of your cruise continues on your disembarkation day with a glorious day in Tuscany! Delight in a post-cruise tour from Civitavecchia to Tuscany exploring Maremma, the rustic region of Tuscany that extols wide open spaces, verdant hills, fertile valleys, Italy’s traditional cowboys (butteri), delicious food, excellent wines, and enchanting medieval towns.
Maremma is less touristy than the rest of Tuscany, making it an ideal serene getaway from the usually crowded tourist destinations. Since this region of southern Tuscany touches the border of Lazio, it offers the wonderful possibility to tour Tuscany on your debarkation tour from Civitavecchia.
Your Stefano’s RomeCabs professional driver will pick you up on the Pier next to your cruise ship in Civitavecchia and take you on a relaxing journey through the rustic countryside into Tuscany towards Sovana and Pitigliano, impressive destinations that offer a perfect snapshot of the Middle Ages with an abundance of history, beauty, and charm.

Pitigliano is a fascinating ancient town that sits on a promontory and is comprised of tuffaceous medieval stone buildings stacked one on top of one another giving them the appearance of rising from the rocky cliff upon which it was built. Dominating the steep ravines that surround it, Pitigliano is truly a sight to behold.
Pitigliano’s unique heritage is a source of pride for the locals. Vestiges of its prehistoric establishment are evident in the rock-hewn tombs and caves that still exist along its city wall. Its current name evolved from its Ancient Roman version, Petilia Gens, derived from the names of its legendary Roman founders: Petilio and Celiano.
The centuries-old medieval stone buildings, charming small squares, and narrow pedestrian-friendly lanes wide enough for the passage of carts will transport you back in time into the fascinating medieval era of powerful lords, dukes, and counts who ruled this town and walked along these very streets.
You will enjoy ample free time on your own to explore Pitigliano, browse unique and inviting shops that sell jewelry, ceramics, delicatessens, olive oil, and wine, and indulge in the local treat: Sfratto di Pitigliano. The local wine knows few rivals, and you may enjoy a glass with your lunch of Tuscan delicacies at an inviting local ristorante.
You may also visit the ancient Jewish ghetto on Via Zuccarelli and discover why Pitigliano is referred to as "Little Jerusalem". See the Jewish Ghetto and its synagogue that was built in 1598, and multiple centuries-old underground caves carved from tuffa rock that served as an ancient wine cellar, an Azzime Bakery, a kosher butcher shop, a ritual bath for women, and other elements of the everyday life of Pitigliano’s Jewish community from the 15th century.
Following your visit and lunch in Pitigliano, you will join your driver for a short drive to your next destination: Sovana.
Sovana is a delightfully charming historic village comprised of butterscotch medieval stone buildings and terracotta brick pavement laid out in traditional herringbone patterns.
Sovana’s lovely Piazza del Pretorio is considered one of Italy’s top 100 most beautiful squares vaunts the picturesque Palazzetto dell’Archivio, Palazzo del Pretorio, the Loggia del Capitano, and the 8th-century church of Santa Maria.
On one farthest end of Sovana, you will discover the 11th-century Romanesque and Gothic Cathedral of St Peter, well regarded for its sculptural decoration and architecturally harmonious interior. The cathedral’s fascinating marble doorway is embellished with mysteriously symbolic motifs associated with medieval spiritualism.
On the other end of the village, you will see the ruins of the once formidable Aldobrandesca Fortress which was part of the village’s defense walls.
Following your visit to Sovana, you will once again join your driver at approximately 3:30 PM for a relaxing drive through the Tuscan countryside to your hotel accommodation in Rome, aiming to arrive by approximately 6:00 PM.
