What You Can Expect

Civitavecchia Shore Excursion: Rome in One Day Including Hop-On Hop-Off Double Decker Bus and River Cruise

Discover Rome on this shore excursion with included hop-on hop-off bus and cruise tickets

Upon arrival at the Civitavecchia port, disembark your cruise ship and meet your driver at the port for the approximate 60-minute ride into central Rome. You’ll be dropped off near St Peter’s Basilica, where your free time in the city begins—you have approximately six hours to explore at your leisure.

Your Rome shore excursion includes tickets for a hop-on hop-off sightseeing bus tour and a river cruise, providing easy transportation by both land and water to see Rome’s world-famous landmarks. If you want to start with the cruise, simply walk along Via della Conciliazione from St Peter’s Square to the Tiber River.

Aboard the open-air boat, depart from the pier in front of Castel Sant’Angelo, and enjoy the leisurely trip along the river while listening to narration about the sights. You can stay on the boat for the full 60-minute loop, or hop off on Tiber Island (Isola Tiberina).

When you’re ready for your hop-on hop-off bus tour, just make your way to one of the eight stops (see the Itinerary for the list) to start your journey. You can stay on the open-top double-decker bus for the whole 90-minute loop, or hop off and back on when you wish to check out attractions like the Trevi Fountain, Piazza Venezia, the Colosseum and Piazza Barberini.

At the end of your free time in Rome, meet back up with the shore excursion group for the return drive to Civitavecchia in time for your ship’s departure.
