When we call on Civitavecchia during our Mediterranean voyages, Disney cruisers have the opportunity to visit Rome, “The Eternal City.” We offer plenty of ways to enjoy one of the most celebrated cities in the world, whether you’re looking for a traditional sightseeing excursion or a unique adventure.
Pantheon, Squares and Fountains: A Walk in Renaissance Rome – This full-day excursion gives you the chance to revel in wonders such as the Pantheon, St. Peter’s Basilica, the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps and Piazza Navona. Complementing the guided tour portion of this adventure is free time to explore, shop and have lunch on your own at one of the many local restaurants or cafes. It’s the perfect introduction to the spectacular treasures of Rome, and your day is sure to be a Roman Holiday you’ll never forget.
Highlights of Rome For Families with Youth Activity – On this tour designed specifically for families, you’ll explore the legendary highlights of Rome and Vatican City. After a guided tour and free time at St. Peter’s Basilica, you’ll indulge in a three-course lunch at a local restaurant. Next stop is Villa Borghese where kids will enjoy a puppet show with Disney Cruise Line Youth Counselors while adults sightsee or shop. The final stop of the day is the Colosseum, the imposing arena where the gladiators once fought and an intriguing sight for the entire family.
Pasta-Making: The Italian Way – This foodie experience is perfect for those who have visited Rome before or are looking for cultural immersion. First, a Roman tour guide will escort you on a journey of culinary delicacies, exploring the food shops of Rome and ending at the famous outdoor food market at Campo de’ Fiori. Next is an authentic pasta-making class where you’ll learn techniques from an Italian chef and prepare delicious fresh pasta on your own. The highlight may be enjoying the meal you’ve helped make, accompanied by a local wine.
