Your post-cruise tour from Civitavecchia begins with a journey through the scenic Roman countryside to your first destination, the captivating historical town of Bracciano


BRACCIANO - explore the fairytale Castle

Dominating the landscape is the majestic 16th-century Odescalchi Castle (also commonly known as Bracciano Castle), an imposing sight that beckons us to step back in time.


Bracciano Castle Post Cruise Rome and Countryside Tour from Civitavecchia


This remarkable castle, still owned by the same Odescalchi family for over 400 years, stands in pristine condition and serves as a museum open to countless visitors.

During your visit, you'll have up to 1 hour to explore the castle’s magnificent halls, sumptuous rooms, grand atrium, the armory filled with medieval and Renaissance Era weaponry, and the castle's large medieval kitchen, each filled with stories of centuries past.

Each opulent room you visit is richly adorned with original furniture from the Renaissance era, priceless paintings, intricate ceilings, and exquisite frescoes. As you venture from room to glorious room, a feeling of stepping back in time envelops you, evoking the captivating realms of kings, lords, and knights found in fairytales. Ascend the medieval stone spiral stairway to the upper level, where you can further explore the castle's magnificent halls and suites, each filled with captivating stories and historical wonders.


Lake Bracciano Castle Post Cruise Rome and Countryside Tour from Civitavecchia


For a truly breathtaking experience, climb atop the castle's ramparts, high upon its fortified walls, and witness a panoramic vista that will leave you in awe. Behold the captivating beauty of Lake Bracciano, a pristine body of water within an ancient volcanic crater. Surrounded by the lush countryside, the serene allure of the lake creates a mesmerizing backdrop, inviting contemplation and appreciation.

CERI - the charming medieval hamlet

As your Rome City and Countryside Tour continues from Bracciano, you will once again venture through the idyllic countryside to reach the enchanting 13th-century medieval hamlet of Ceri.

Strategically built atop a fortified plateau of tuff since ancient times, Ceri is a captivating medieval fortress perched dramatically on a steep cliff.

Ceri Medieval Village Rome Countryside Post Cruise Tour


The village's rich ancient heritage, dominating the present, becomes apparent as you approach the base of the cliff. To access the village, a single winding road skillfully carved into the rock awaits, accommodating only one vehicle at a time. This unique traffic challenge has been ingeniously resolved with the installation of two traffic lights—one at the hill's bottom and another in the main square above, marking the road's end.

Once inside the charming town square, you'll be embraced by medieval buildings aged by the passage of time, boasting ochre and sienna hues. Here, you have the opportunity to visit the remarkable Sanctuary of the Madonna di Ceri.

This Romanesque church, with its unassuming facade, stands atop an ancient temple where both ancient Etruscans and Romans paid homage to the pagan goddess Vesta. Step inside the sanctuary, and the true beauty unfolds before your eyes, as stunning ancient and medieval frescoes grace the walls. Dedicated to the Virgin Mary, the sanctuary holds a reputation for intercession and assisting those facing challenges.

After indulging in a delightful traditional Italian lunch at a local family-owned restaurant, your journey continues through the captivating Roman countryside to Rome.




PIAZZA DEL COLOSSEO - View the Colosseum, Arch of Constantine

Set foot upon the expansive and cobblestoned Piazza del Colosseo, where a breathtaking sight eagerly awaits you. Stroll through the square and let yourself be enveloped in the grandeur of the Colosseum, an enduring icon that bears witness to the immense power and grandeur of Ancient Rome.


Colosseum Rome Post Cruise Tour from Civitavecchia


With its lower three levels adorned by 80 arches each, this architectural marvel sparks the imagination. Once adorned with magnificent white marble, the Colosseum now showcases the rustic beauty of travertine stone. Within its arches, larger-than-life statues once stood proudly, their legacy now lost to the passage of time. Over the centuries, the Colosseum has weathered the elements, human activity, and the inexorable march of time, leaving behind traces of history etched upon its weathered facade.

Even during the Medieval and Renaissance eras, the Colosseum found itself repurposed, providing valuable marble to other structures across Rome. As you traverse Colosseum Square, discover the Colosseum from varying angles, each unique perspective transforms its appearance and leaves you in awe.

Arch of Constantine Colosseum Square Rome post cruise tours from Civitavecchia


Nearby is the awe-inspiring triumphal Arch of Constantine, erected to commemorate Emperor Constantine's triumph over Emperor Maxentius at the Battle of Milvian Bridge in 312 AD. This monumental victory not only heralded a new era but also played a significant role in the legalization of Christianity within the Roman Empire, forever altering the course of history.

The Arch of Constantine stands as a resolute testament to this pivotal moment, evoking a profound sense of reflection and inspiring heartfelt admiration. 

  • IMPORTANT: This tour does NOT include a visit inside the Colosseum due to extreme difficulty in securing specific time slot tickets and potentially long security lines that would hinder the tour's itinerary and sightseeing opportunities in Rome.



Not to miss on your morning of Rome City and Countryside tour is visiting Rome’s vibrant fountains: Piazza della Rotonda, Piazza Navona, Trevi Fountain, and Spanish Steps.


PIAZZA DELLA ROTONDA - Rome’s historic square

As you enter the lively Piazza della Rotonda, your gaze will be irresistibly drawn to the awe-inspiring Pantheon and the captivating Fontana del Pantheon.

The fountain's allure is further enhanced by the remarkable marble Egyptian obelisk that proudly crowns it, once part of a magnificent duo fashioned for the Temple of Ra in Heliopolis. Its twin counterpart gracefully adorns the front of the Basilica of Santa Maria Sopra Minerva, located just behind the Pantheon.


Piazza della Rotonda Pantheon Rome debarkation Tours from Civitavecchia


Stand in awe before the commanding presence of the Pantheon itself, a venerable testament to ancient Rome's pagan past that has since been transformed into the cherished church of Saint Mary and the Martyrs.

In and around Piazza della Rotonda ancient wonders blend seamlessly with vibrant modern life, creating a tapestry of unforgettable experiences. Indulge in a leisurely stroll through the square, where historical palazzi whisper tales of bygone eras. Venture around the Pantheon, and marvel at the striking Basilica of Santa Maria Sopra Minerva graced by the renowned statue of Bernini's elephant carrying an imposing obelisk on its back. Explore enticing shops that offer unique treasures waiting to be discovered or indulge in the divine flavors of a gelato from a nearby gelateria.

  •  IMPORTANT: A visit inside the Pantheon is not included in this tour due to long entry lines, even for visitors with hard-to-obtain pre-booked time slot tickets.


PIAZZA NAVONA - Rome’s vibrant square

Piazza Navona is a vibrant oblong-shaped piazza adorned with resplendent palazzi and graced by the presence of three magnificent fountains.


Piazza Navona Post Cruise Tours to Rome debarkation tours


A secret lies beneath its surface, as the shape of this square traces back to the ancient 1st century AD Roman Stadium, commissioned by Emperor Domitian to host exhilarating athletic competitions. As the centuries passed, the square's name evolved from the ancient word for "games," 'agones,' to its current renowned appellation, Navona.

Amongst the trio of fountains that grace this remarkable square, it is the centerpiece, the Fountain of Four Rivers (Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi), that steals the spotlight. Crafted by the artistic genius Gian Lorenzo Bernini in 1651, this awe-inspiring masterpiece seamlessly blends stone and water to embody the four mighty rivers that flowed through the major continents of that era: the Danube River symbolizing Europe, the Nile River representing Africa, the Rio de la Plata signifying America, and the Ganges River embodying Asia. Towering above the fountain is an ancient Egyptian obelisk, a testament to the rich tapestry of history, carefully erected by Pope Innocent X.

Surrounded by warm-hued palazzi that exude an air of timeless elegance, Piazza Navona is a living canvas where a tapestry of art, architecture, and the city's vibrant spirit harmoniously intertwine, creating a spectacle that truly takes one's breath away.

TREVI FOUNTAIN - A Baroque Masterpiece

The Trevi Fountain entices you with a mesmerizing symphony of cascading waters that flow gracefully from magnificent mythological stone sculptures into its expansive pool.


Trevi Fountain post cruise tours to Rome from Civitavecchia debark tour


At the heart of the fountain stands Oceanus, the god of the seas, while surrounding him are tritons and sea horses. Each sculpture beautifully narrates a story from ancient mythology, adding an enchanting touch to this awe-inspiring masterpiece.

Located at the intersection of three roads, it derives its name from this very union: Tre Vie, or Trevi. Serving as the majestic terminal of the Acqua Vergine, a revived ancient Roman aqueduct that has quenched the thirst of Rome since 19 BC, this iconic fountain stands as a testament to the enduring legacy of the city's water supply, delivering the precious gift of spring water to its citizens.

Immerse yourself in an age-old tradition that has captured the hearts of visitors for decades: partake in the ritual of tossing a coin into the Trevi Fountain, embracing the belief that it guarantees your inevitable return to the Eternal City. 

The Trevi Fountain has not only captivated visitors but has also served as a backdrop for numerous famous movies, including the iconic scene from Federico Fellini's "La Dolce Vita" and "Three Coins in a Fountain".  Its timeless beauty and allure have made it a symbol of romance and fantasy, drawing people from around the world to experience its magic firsthand.


SPANISH STEPS - Rome’s graceful stairway

Experience the enchantment of the Spanish Steps, where art, architecture, and history converge to create an enduring masterpiece that has captivated visitors for centuries.

Piazza Navona Rome post cruise tours from Civitavecchia private excursions


This elegant stairway seamlessly connects the French Church of Trinita dei Monti to the vibrant Piazza di Spagna square below, where you'll find the captivating Baroque-style fountain known as the Fontana della Barcaccio, or "The Fountain of the Old Boat." Crafted from travertine, this unique masterpiece depicts a partially submerged boat overflowing with water into a shallow pool, showcasing the artistic brilliance of Pietro Bernini, the esteemed father of renowned sculptor Gian Lorenzo Bernini.

As you ascend the steps, your gaze will be drawn to the magnificent obelisk that proudly stands at the pinnacle.  Known as the Obelisco Sallustiano, this ancient Egyptian monument has a storied past, originally erected in the gardens of the Roman historian Sallust during the reign of Emperor Aurelian in the 3rd century AD. It was later moved to its current location in the 18th century, adding a touch of historical intrigue to the grandeur of the Spanish Steps.
