What to expect
  • When your ship docks at the Civitavecchia cruise port, hop aboard your private air-conditioned vehicle for the drive into Rome, where your shore excursion starts in Vatican City. Meet your private guide, and enter the Vatican Museums with your skip-the-line ticket. Inside, wander the vast complex of galleries and rooms that house the world’s largest collection of art. Your guide will introduce you to the highlights, including, of course, the Sistine Chapel, where you can gaze in wonder at Michelangelo’s famous ceiling fresco, 'The Creation of Adam.' Then visit neighboring St. Peter’s Basilica (where you’ll also skip the line) to see another famous Michelangelo piece, his 'La Pietà' sculpture, before heading out to St. Peter’s Square. Next, you’ll be transferred into Rome’s historical center, where you have a break to buy lunch (own expense); your guide can offer recommendations about local restaurants. Then continue your exploration of the city, checking out iconic landmarks like the Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, Piazza Navona, and the Pantheon. You’ll end your tour at the Colosseum, where your skip-the-line ticket once again allows you to go directly inside without waiting in the main entrance queue. Walk along the ancient amphitheater’s main level, and learn about the gory gladiator battles and other events that make up its bloody history. Your day tour ends with the drive back to Civitavecchia so you can catch your cruise ship.  Note: Your private guide provides commentary about Rome and its iconic sights throughout the day. If you have any special interests, such as architecture, art, culture or history, please provide this information at the time of booking so your guide can best prepare for your private tour. Worry-free Shore Excursion: We will ensure your timely return to the Civitavecchia port for this activity. In the rare event your ship has departed, we will arrange for transportation to the next port-of-call. If your ship is delayed and you are unable to attend this activity, your money will be refunded. See our terms and conditions for full details.

September 2019 I books a private one day tour of Rome. The Agents were exceptional in making sure my reservation was perfect.
Unfortunately due to Covid-19 we had to cancel our trip and the prepaid tour. In March 2020 I was told it would take at least 4 months if not more for a refund yesterday I once again reached out to City Wonders and to my amazement my credit card was refunded in full.
Thanks City Wonders for your understanding and I am a satisfied customer. I would book with your company if the opportunity arises again.

Excellent Rome Shore Excursion - well organized tour of all major sights with skip the line access
Aug 2018 • Family
This is the way to go if you want to see Rome highlights while limited to a one day shore excursion. City Wonders is highly organized prompt and very efficient. We were able to see all the major sights and skip the line everywhere - highly worth considering if you have limited time. We were transferred through Rome by private car and the Driver was excellent and navigated the city streets better than I could imagine. Our local guide was superb, highly educated and qualified to be an excellent guide. I would highly recommend City Wonders to anyone wishing a tour of Rome. Rome is a very congested, busy and touristic city - you will spend hours in line at the major sights if you do not plan well, City Wonders takes care of all the planning and scheduling for you. A bit pricey - yes - but consider that money well spent when you speed past all the lines and see everything Rome has to offer.
