Make the Most of your Pre-Cruise Civitavecchia Transfer
Buon giorno and welcome to Stefano’s RomeCabs, Rome’s leading private transfer and tour company at your service to make your trip or cruise to Italy your most treasured holiday!
This article offers 2 popular options how How to Make the Most of your Pre-Cruise Civitavecchia Transfer
Since most cruise ships sail in late afternoon or early evening, you have at least a half day to see, do, and enjoy more of Italy before you sail on your cruise.
If you are planning to stay in Rome prior to your cruise, Stefano’s RomeCabs offers our guests the options to enjoy Rome or the lovely Roman Countryside Pre Cruise including a Transfer to your ship in Civitavecchia at the end of your tour.
You can choose between these 2 popular Pre Cruise Tour options:
Stefano’s RomeCabs will pick you up in the morning from your hotel accommodation and take you on a half day tour to see some of Rome’s highlights before leaving for Civitavecchia.
This half day tour and transfer option is ideal for cruisers who have limited time in Rome and wish to see as much as possible in the little time available to them.
We offer a suggested itinerary of Rome’s highlights that are most enjoyed by our guests, or if you wish to substitute some of the places in the itinerary with sites you’d much rather see we are happy to customize your tour.
One of the great benefits of having a private tour! It’s YOUR tour, and you have the possibility to choose what you’d like to see and do.
Fancy a visit to the Colosseum that you haven’t been able to do yet?
Enjoy some of Rome’s famous squares?
Would you like to throw a coin into the Trevi Fountain and wish for a return to the Eternal City?
Admire Rome’s ancient monuments of the Roman Empire?
At the end of your tour, you will enjoy a relaxing drive out of Rome and into the countryside on your way to Civitavecchia where your Rome Cabs driver will deliver you right on the pier next to your ship for optimal convenience.
If you have already visited your favorite places in Rome and wish to experience something different, our popular Countryside Pre Cruise Tour will take you out of the hustle and bustle of Rome and into the quiet and relaxing countryside to Lake Bracciano.
BRACCIANO LAKE AND ODESCALCHI CASTLE
Lake Bracciano is one of the top destinations for local Italians when they wish to escape Rome city life. The pristine volcanic crater lake is dotted with villages for a marvelous countryside getaway.
The village of Bracciano is dominated by the Renaissance Odescalchi-Orsini Castle (popularly known as Bracciano Castle). Still owned by the same family from the Renaissance era, you can visit this imposing castle and it’s opulent rooms where Italy’s most powerful and illustrious figures have lived and slept: Kings, Queens, Lords, Knights, Popes, and Fair Ladies whose names have graced history books (and a few HBO docu-series!).
MEDIEVAL HAMLET OF CERI
By now it’s lunch time, so your Countryside Pre Cruise Tour with Stefano’s RomeCabs continues to the Medieval hamlet of Ceri that looks as though it rose out of the rough tuffa cliff upon which it has rested for a millennium.
Ceri is also popular with Italians for its excellent local family owned restaurants that serve some of the most delicious local cuisines in the region! On a weekend you might even stumble upon an Italian wedding at the village Sanctuary of Mary of Ceri.
The Sanctuary of Mary of Ceri was built on top of a pagan temple (as it’s often the case with historic churches in Italy from the middle ages), and its interior walls are masterpieces of Medieval frescoes aged and damaged by centuries of existence but still amazingly well preserved and vibrant.
After lunch and your visit in Ceri, you will continue on your way to Civitavecchia where your RomeCabs driver will deliver you on the pier next to your ship so you quickly embark and begin your cruise adventure!
