On this relaxing Shore Excursion from Civitavecchia, Stefano’s RomeCabs will take you on an unforgettable journey through Rome’s rustic countryside that is rich in history, architecture, nature, and charm

What our clients most enjoy is a visit into the Renaissance Bracciano Castle.  You might recall it as the fairy tale castle where Tom Cruise (and many other international celebrities) were married.

Bracciano Castle

Overlooking the pristine volcanic Bracciano Lake, this imposing centuries old castle boasts luxurious state rooms where kings, popes, lords, ladies, dukes and knights have lived and slept. Original furnishings, paintings, frescoes and day to day objects turns this castle into a museum in itself.

The view of the lake from the top of the castle will surely take your breath away!

The nearby medieval hamlet of Ceri sits perched on top of a steep cliff and it’s reachable only by 1 narrow street on which vehicles take turn driving as there’s not enough space for 2 vehicles to pass side by side.  A traffic light on top of the village and a traffic light at the bottom of the village directs the traffic going up and down.

Medieval Hamlet of Ceri

Ceri is well known for its Madonna of Ceri sanctuary with walls adorned with worn out medieval frescoes of Christian biblical stories.

Ceri also draws a large number of visitors for the local family owned restaurants that are well regarded for their delicious local cuisine!  Italians come for miles and miles away to have Sunday lunch in Ceri.

For those with an adventurous heart  or those who once aspired to be the next Indiana Jones, the Cerveteri Etruscan Necropolis will be quite an adventure as you have the opportunity to explore the many tombs that date back to  more than 2,000 years ago!

Cerveteri Etruscan Necropolis

Several centuries of the Etruscan Civilization can be explored in Cerveteri with hundreds of tombs shaped like mounds. Cube shaped tombs make up square city blocks with streets and squares for processions and religious ceremonies reflect the more modern Etruscan architectural skills.

After an unforgettable journey through Italy’s ancient Etruscan, Medieval, and Renaissance eras, Stefano’s RomeCabs will take you back to your ship in time for your cruise to continue on.
