Tour Details

Your day-long journey begins as you board the comfortable bus in Civitavecchia for an easy ride to Rome city center. You will arrive near the Supreme Court of Italy called the Palazaccio. From here the meeting place where you will find your guide is on the other side of the street as per the map that will be provided. Your guide will be at the stop waiting for you and holding a sign with your name. After checking in with your guide you will start your one-hour walking tour of the Vatican area.

Your expert guide will take you past Castel Sant'Angelo, a towering cyclical building which was originally commissioned as the mausoleum for Emperor Hadrian, then continue to Saint Peter's Square and walk along the walls of Vatican City.

Enjoy some free time on your own and as you wish for lunch and relaxation before entering the Vatican Museum. Once inside, you and your group will be guided through the many sections including the Raphael rooms and the Belvedere Courtyard.

Soak in the beauty of the famous Sistine Chapel as you enter Saint Peter's Basilica using a back door reserved for private tours. Built over Saint Peter's tomb, the church took more than 120 years to build and is considered the world's most important Christian site. Take some time to explore this ancient basilica that includes Michelangelo's Pieta and Bernini's Baldachin as well as the chair of Saint Peter before returning to your transportation.

Make the most of your time at the Vatican Museum by skipping the long entrance lines with this guided tour. A return transfer back to the port of Civitavecchia will then have you to your ship at the end of the day before departure, approximately 5:30PM.
