What You'll do in this tour

Not a lot of time on shore? Not sure what to see and do or how to get there? Let Miles&Miles take care of that for you. Our tour starts from the exit of your ship in Civitavecchia where one of our driver guides will be waiting, bearing a sign with your name, ready to escort you into the city. After your tours our driver guide will return you to your ship in plenty of time for your departure.

On this tour you will have the convenience of transportation the entire day and your driver guide will cover the major highlights of Rome both inside and outside of the city walls for a more in depth view of Rome.  The tours are led by expert English speaking driver guides who will help to create a personalized experience while taking into account your specific interests.

Our tours will allow you to be able to catch a glimpse of daily Roman life hidden behind ivy-clad corners, open-air markets, and underground passageways long forgotten through the centuries. These incredible services enable you to tour the city with a native Roman tour escort showing you the real face of the city they are so passionate about. The tours are available in English or Italian, and are delivered with an insight and style that keeps our tours entertaining, fun, and informative.

Choose this shore excursion option when you would like to do a driver guided tour for the day (without a walking tour) to have a very comprehensive overview of the city and be able to see as many sites as possible. This is also a great option if the Vatican is closed on your day in Rome and if you do not wish to tour the Ancient Rome sites with a walking guide or it is the first Sunday of the month. This shore excursion option includes transfers to and from the port as your driver guide will be with you the full day.

 

Tour Description:

Our tour starts from the exit of your ship in Civitavecchia where one of our driver guides will have a sign bearing your name waiting to tour you through the city in our comfortable, air conditioned van. Enjoy the scenic drive from the port in style as you view the countryside on your way into Rome. Once you arrive you will begin an action-packed seven hour tour of the city which includes all of the major sites. You will stop for a quick break for lunch and your driver guide will be happy to give you suggestions based on your tastes and budget.  You will continue on your tour after lunch visiting more city sites allowing you to have a comprehensive view of the Eternal City.  You will be introduced to each site and given the history with your driver guide sharing the secrets of this magnificent city with you and then you will have time to explore on your own inside.  At the end of your tour, your driver guide will take you back to your ship in Civitavecchia and you will feel confident that you will set sail with a day full of wonderful memories of Rome. You will be dropped off around 5:30 pm.
