Drop-off at the Colosseum.

Explore Rome at your own pace.

Tour will leave St Peter's Square for the journey back to the port of Civitavecchia to arrive in plenty of time for your ship's departure.

When does my tour start?

This tour will depart Civitavecchia meeting point (which will be displayed on your shore excursion vouchers) aproximately 7.30am - 8am, depending on what time the cruise ship ports we will adapt the timings for this.

When do I return to port after my tour/excursion?
We schedule your return to port to ensure you arrive in plenty of time to re-join your ship - normally 1 hour before the scheduled sailing time. Where you have free time after the end of your tour, then it is your responsibility to ensure you re-join the ship on time.

All tour times are based on Shore time (ie local time, - not ship time)

This is a very popular shuttle service and it is advisable to reserve these seats as early as you can to avoid disappointment.

You will be met at the port coach park by your Cruising Excursions representative, who will then guide you to your air conditioned transportation.

The drive from the cruise port to central Rome takes about 1 hour 30 minutes. Your escort will give you information for your day in Rome including the location and time to meet at the end of your day.

'Rome on your Own' is an excursion which gives you the flexibility to enjoy the sights of Rome at your own pace. Attractions you may choose to visit include:

St Peter’s Square - The striking square and its imposing colonnade lead to the greatest basilica of the Christian world. St Peter’s Basilica also represents the core of the Vatican City, the smallest state in the world.

The Colosseum - Completed in AD 80, this is the largest amphitheatre ever built and is considered one of the greatest works of Roman architecture and engineering. It hosted gladiatorial contests and public spectacles until the early medieval era.

The Vatican - A symbol of the Catholic faith, the Vatican City State is home to the Pope as well as religious and cultural sites such as St. Peter's Basilica, the Sistine Chapel and the Vatican Museums. These feature some of the world's most famous paintings and sculptures.

The Trevi Fountain - Inspired by Roman triumphal arches, this is the largest and most famous Baroque fountain in Rome.

The Pantheon - This temple, dedicated to all the gods of pagan Rome, is the most well-preserved and influential building of Ancient Rome, having been in continuous use throughout its almost 2000-year history.

The Spanish Steps - This monumental stairway was completed in 1725 and is often used to host famous fashion shows. The steps provide a stunning location in which to relax and take in your fabulous surroundings.

The Piazza Navona - Built on the site of the Stadium of Domitian, in the 1st Century AD, this beautiful square is a perfect place to souvenir shop or just sit and have a snack and coffee.

This tour is a fantastic way to see all the sights of Rome at your leisure. You can choose where you go, what you do and how long you spend in each place; it's an ideal choice for those who have visited Rome before.

At the end of the day you will be picked up at St Peter's Square at the pre-arranged time by the tour escort and taken back to the port of Civitavecchia with plenty of time before your ship departs.
