Don't expect to see all of Rome in a day. All the same, whether you're on a cruise stop or just passing through on a tour of Italy, here's a varied sampling platter of Rome's highlights!
Sunny day? Be sure to meander around the Galleria Borghese's picturesque park and gardens. If you've got time, pop inside the gorgeous villa for a who's who of Renaissance art.
This world-renowned archeological site is the closest you'll come to a glimpse at city life in Ancient Rome. Even better, it's right by the Colosseum and Palatine Hill too!
A day tour won't allow enough time to savor life at all Rome's piazzas, but make the most of it by seeing this cultural emblem - celebrated in numerous films - at Trevi Square.
Seeing Michelangelo's Renaissance-defining ceiling might be a bit of stretch at peak season. Be sure to fit it in by pre-booking skip-the-line tickets to the Vatican museums!
If you're early enough, mingle with the locals at Campo de' Fiori, one of Rome's favorite markets. If the stalls are already packed up, fret not! Stick around to enjoy the vibrant café culture.
Civitavecchia is the main cruise port for excursions to Rome. The easiest way to reach the city center is by pre-booking a private or shared transfer, or by taking a taxi. However, there are also two or three trains per hour to Roma Termini (Rome's main station). It costs about €5 each way, but you could save money with the BIRG ticket (day pass), which will get you there and back, as well as covering buses, trams, and the metro for the entire day.
Since you're not there for long, you'll probably want to rely on taxis. Unfortunately, this is easier said than done in Rome, where hailing down a cab in the tourist-heavy areas is nearly impossible. Utilize the metro wherever possible, as buses and trams can also be slowed by traffic. There are two metro lines: Line A (orange) runs between the northwest and southeast, and Line B (blue) runs north to south, with a third line due to open in 2016.

What People Are Saying About Rome
The tour was very good. Well organized, the guides were very knowledgeable and fun at the same time, everything went smoothly and we were not late at any point.
We liked the tour. However when I booked for this tour we had no idea that the way to Orvieto was by cablecar. We did not mind because we are used to it but I have a friend who is afraid of heights and would never go up on cable cars. So if she was with me, would it have meant that she would have had to skip the Orvieto part of the tour and would have had to stay behind waiting for us downhill at the cable car station? Please be so kind as to mention in your tour description that the way to Orvieto is done by cable car. Thanks. Besides according to the brochure which says that... I quote:"Leaving Assisi, stop at the town of Santa Maria degli Angeli, where St. Francis died in 1226." we missed stopping at this town. Why was this? Otherwise we had a lovely interesting tour and the guide was very informative.
I was picked up at my hotel by the Guide and Driver. Right away I knew I was in very good hands. The tour was informative and they even shared plenty of jokes with me as I was the only one on the tour. Was impressive the amount of added detail that was added. Thank you very much, definately would recomend to others. :-)
Loved it. Saw everything and guides were great, personable and knowledgeable! Drivers picked us up at the ship and dropped us off back at the boat, great! Really liked both your morning (Michala) and afternoon (Francesca). We also had a nice break so we could enjoy a non rushed local lunch.
Excellent day trip from Rome to Pompeii/Vesuvius. Both tour guide and site guide at Pompeii were knowledgeable. This was our first trip to both locations and we are glad we went. It was a great break from the church/museum/city tours elsewhere. Due to tight schedule, would have preferred longer time at both sites in order to get time for souvenirs. Provided lunch was only ok but considering the large crowd being fed, acceptable. As with any larger tour group, timing, food, and breaks are difficult to make perfect for everyone. I do recommend the tour to others.
