PRE CRUISE HOTEL Umberto Rome ApartHotel ‪Via di Porta Cavalleggeri, 23‬ ‪00165 Roma‬ Web: ‪www.romeaparthotel.com‬ Mail: ‪info@romeaparthotel.com‬ Phone: Mobile: ‪+393338758237‬ ‪+39066385765‬ - [x] Rome apart hotel (near Vatican) $99 euro /night + 3.50 pp/night tax. Paid $212 euro / $307.80 Canadian for 2 nights. Includes breakfast - [x] $50 euro for them to pick up from airport arranged. Pay in cash. Roberto our driver was waiting for us and well worth the service. Umberto arranged for us - [x] Another transfer option Try Rome Cabs https://www.romecabs.com/ - [x] Rome also has Uber but expensive. Use as a good way to tell what to expect to pay a cab Oct 1-2 ROME on our own (pre cruise) - [x] colosseum (walked on our own exterior only). Not interested in going in. Lots of ruins on the outside to see free - [x] St. Peter’s basilica (go in on our own) - [x] St. Peter’s square / feed pigeons - [x] Sistine chapel - [x] Trevi fountain (drop a coin in and you’re sure to go back again) *gelato place right beside. Very busy. Can not sit on it any more or touch. - [x] Spanish steps. Ok to see. Not a big deal IMO - [x] Piazza novona (cafes and dining) - [x] Campo de’ Fiori to check out the food market (not running on Sundays!) - [x] Streets of Trastevere. FAVOURITE PART!! Have lunch or per dinner apps at a procuitterira!! Amazing gourmet cheese and meat plates with wine. Also cafes and pastries. - [x] Gelato anywhere. $2 - [x] Good Italian romantic dinner. Trastevere area is best for this. - [x] Good Panini lunch. Lots of deli’s around. - [x] Good cafe for morning. Traditional Italian breakfast is just coffee and pastry / croissant. Cappuccinos were my favourite !! Overall 2 days pre cruise was perfect to do Rome. We did mostly all in 1 day. Loved Rome !!! Oct 3 - getting to pier - [x] Port of Civitavecchia is approx 1.5 hour drive from hotel - [x] Hotel can drive us for $130 euros or use Rome Cabs same price - [x] Uber $145 eur - [x] OR take the train from Roma S. Pietro to Civitavecchia (it takes one hour and costs almost 5.00 euro each), and then bus or walk to pier - [x] Cruise passengers disembarking at docks from 10 to 13 and willing to get to Civitavecchia Train Station can go directly on foot. The walk is less than 2 km in about 20 minutes you will arrive at the station. We took a bus. Read Less

We had visited Rome twice to decided to stay in Civitavecchia. Great port, we took the shuttle which dropped us off right in the town. This is a lively town and very busy, plenty of shops to look in as well as cafes. We walked to the far end and came to a lovely sea front promenade, we walked as far as we could and stopped for a coffee. Very pleasant port Read Less

So many things to see and do in Rome. We did the hop on/hop off bus and went to the Trevi Fountain, Colosseum, Spanish Steps, Vatican, etc. The crowds were big and the line ups were long so we skipped some of the tours but did others where other tourists don't go. The Church of San Clemente (near the Colosseum) has an underground museum dating to 200 AD. Fascinating! Read Less

Very easy embarkation / debarkation. We got a bit confused about how to get to the ship from the train station, but found out later there is a city bus that will take you right into the port where you connect with a coach bus that takes you to the ship. It costs a few Euro but it's totally worth it. We took a frecciabianca train which runs non-stop from Roma Termini to Civitavecchia. If you're embarking at Termini and have a lot of luggage just be sure to get onto the train early. Read Less

Been to Rome many times, so just walked into port. Dirty and tired, shops not as good as they used to be. Quite a large food market which is interesting.

We spent the day before and after in Rome. Loved the Trastevere Segway tour and the Vatican tour. We did a colosseum tour at night that was a little disappointing because it’s not lit at all and couldn’t see.

We flew into Rome with flights arranged by Celebrity and then transferred to Civitavecchia for the cruise. We had time to go geocaching in both Rome and Civitavecchia prior to beginning the cruise.

There is a free shuttle from the ship. You can then walk to the train station (20 mins or so) or get a €2 bus which leaves from the shuttle stop. We chose this option having hiked through Cinque Terre the previous day! The train from Civitavecchia is straight forward and the ticket machines easy to understand. We got the train to the termini and then returned from the Roma S. Pietro station which is near the Vatican. Returning from this stop shaves at least 15 mins off the journey time, which is about an hour. It is very hard to experience the whole of Rome in a day so prioritise! Read Less

Rome was amazing! We walked EVERYWHERE!! Skip the hop on /off bus (We bought the tickets but only took it at a couple stops as they were so very crowded and took forever to load. Walking was likely faster, and certainly way more fun!) and just get a map from the tourist kiosks and wander around, get lost and really see the city. Read Less

Since we had already been to Rome on a previous cruise, and because we did not want to risk missing the boat, we chose to spend a quiet morning in Civitavecchia. After escorting our friends to the train station we strolled along the waterfront and the fort, had pizza and beer on a terrace, and did a little shopping before returning to the ship. Our friend returned from Rome minus his wallet, which was lifted by a pickpocket on the metro. The front desk on the ship were very accommodating in issuing a new cruise card. Read Less

you have to take a bus to the train station and then the train into town. You pay extra for all of this. Then we found the hop on bus
