TOP 7 ROME AND ITALY TRAVEL TIPS

.

Highly recommended for your Vatican Museums visit is a private tour guide for a 2 hour informative private tour of the highlights of the Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel and St Peter’s Basilica.  ONLY visitors with tour guides can access the Basilica through the shortcut entrance from the Sistine Chapel. Otherwise, DIY visitors will need to exit the museums, and access the Basilica through the St Peter’s Square – unfortunately there may also be a long security line depending on how many visitors wish to visit the Basilica at the same time as you.

Be sure to dress appropriately when visiting the Sistine Chapel and St Peter’s basilica due to modesty dress code (shoulders and knees always covered) being enforced.  Be sure to read the article below to avoid being turned away if you are not dressed appropriately.

.
.

On this popular countryside tour, your morning will begin with a journey to Bracciano Lake that will take you to the medieval lakeside town by the same name: Bracciano.

Bracciano is dominated by the imposing Renaissance era Orsini-Odescalchi Castle (most commonly known as Bracciano Castle).

You have the opportunity to visit the castle on your own, and see the many splendid rooms that are furnished and decorated with the original Renaissance era furniture, paintings, wall frescoes, and ornate ceilings.  You will walk through private apartment rooms that centuries ago were occupied by kings, queens, lords, ladies, and knights… transporting you to far away times of folklore and fairy tales.  

.

.
.

After visiting the outdoor atrium and Medieval style castle kitchen, be sure to climb up the castle walls and walk along the ramparts for a glorious view of the pristine lake and the rustic countryside around you.

Lunch in the medieval clifftop village of Ceri is not to be missed!  This former Medieval fortress with just one narrow street to reach the top of the village appears as though time stood still. 

Although tiny, this village is huge popular for the excellent local cuisine prepared by the local family owned restaurants that use fresh local and in season ingredients, and secret recipes passed down from generation to generation. Grandma still overlooks the kitchen to make sure that all is prepared with perfection and tradition.

After lunch you will journey further back in time to the ancient Etruscan civilization with a visit to the Banditaccia Etruscan Necropolis in Cerveteri to explore dozens of the hundreds of stone carved mound and cube tombs from that date as far back as around 700-300 BC.

7 Amazing Places to visit on your Etruscan Tours

The more ancient burial sites consisted of stone urns. Over time as the Etruscan civilization evolved, so has their skill at creating more complex tombs that resembled the actual homes of the deceased.   These are the only sources of information we have as to what ancient Etruscan tombs looked like.  

Although you will not find any tomb treasures on your tomb adventures, you will feel a bit like Indiana Jones.

ETRUSCAN MYSTERY TOUR

.

.

This unique Day Trip from Civitavecchia is offered by our sister company Stefano Rome Tours  takes you on a fantastic journey through the ancient lands of Etruria to places where the Etruscans once thrived and created amazingly beautiful things  – such as the vibrant tomb frescoes inside the Monterozzi Etruscan Necropolis in Tarquinia.

Tarquinia was once one of the most prominent ancient Etruscan city states and it gets its name from its ancient Etruscan name of Tarquinii.

There is absolutely nothing else like this in the world. Dozens of tombs dating back to around 5th-4th centuries BC were discovered to contain amazingly beautiful frescoes on the interior walls of the tombs. 

 Here, you will feel like you’ve come face to face with these ancient mysterious people as you admire tombs of Etruscans feasting and celebrating, dancing, playing music, hunting, playing sports, and more.  We have a special opportunity to see how they dressed, how they styled their hair, the furniture and tools they used, and how they went about their daily lives.

.

Unlike Cerveteri where the tombs were on the surface like little huts and houses to explore, the tombs in Tarquinia are all underground.   About a dozen tombs are open for visits at a time in efforts to preserve the delicate ancient frescoes.

.

The tombs themselves are sealed off and kept in temperature and humidity controlled environment so we have the unique opportunity to admire these ancient masterpieces for a long time.  A push button turns on the light on a timer, you may turn on the light repeatedly to enjoy viewing the tombs as long as you wish.

Aside from the frescoes, the tombs are bare. All the sarcophagi and treasures are housed in the town of Tarquinia nearby inside the Tarquinia National Museum

From Tarquinia, you will enjoy a scenic drive to Tuscania

Not to be confused with Tuscany, Tuscania was also formerly an important Etruscan city with many legends contributing to the origins of its name: one being it was named after Tusco, son of mythological Hercules and Araxes

Another legend has it Tuscania was founded by Aeneas’ son Ascanius who found 12 puppies there and named the place Tus-Cana – deriving from the word cana which is similar to the Roman word for dog, canis (cane in Italian).

The Etruscan civilization preceded the Romans and even ruled over Rome (Rome had 7 Etruscan kings before it became a Republic). 

Much of what Romans achieved, they learned from the Etruscans who were one of the most highly advanced civilizations of its time from around 8th century BC to 4th century BC when they were conquired by the Romans and were absorbed into the ever growing Roman empire.

 

5 TOP “Cruisers’ Choice” Rome Shore Excursions from Civitavecchia

 

Because Etruscans built largely with wood and terracotta, most of their buildings have not survived over time, and they did not leave any books to learn more about this highly mysterious civilization whose alphabet and language have not yet been fully understood. 

However, in many of their underground tombs at the Monterozzi Etruscan Necropolis in Tarquinia, they left behind many beautifully painted tombs that depicted the daily lives of these amazing ancient people.

How the train ruined the Cruise for thousands of Civitavecchia Cruisers

If you wish to skip Rome and the chaos, you my book a Countryside Pre Cruise Tour instead and visit enchanting Renaissance Bracciano Castle, and enjoy lunch in a Medieval clifftop hamlet where time stood still and the food is legendary.

.

.

.

SELF TOURING ROME BEFORE YOUR CRUISE

.

You can do some sightseeing on your own in Rome before your departure to Civitavecchia depending on where in Rome you are staying.

If you are staying near the Colosseum, you can visit the Colosseum and Roman Forum. Most visitors who don’t have all day to devote to sightseeing only need about an hour to visit each site.

If you are staying near the Vatican, you can visit the Vatican on your own in the morning. Usually you can touch on the highlights of the Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel and St Peter’s Basilica in 2-3 hours.

Having a private tour guide on this tour really helps enhance your experience….not only are the Vatican Museums a vast labyrinth of halls and galleries, but you don’t want to miss the most important works of art while wandering around where there is least to see.  A private tour guide will also take you through the Sistine Chapel and St Peter’s Basilica so your Vatican experience is complete.

My Rome Guides offer private walking tours to the Vatican as well as Ancient Rome, and they are locally licensed tour guides (be sure that if you book a tour guide in Italy they are professionally licensed and carry a badge)

Always be sure to purchase your tickets to the Vatican Museums and the Colosseum online or by phone in advance to avoid the time wasting long lines.

If you are staying near the famous squares, you can take a stroll to Piazza Navona, the Pantheon, Trevi Fountain or the Spanish Steps.

Rome Sea Port Civitavecchia Transfers – RomeCabs

14 Mar Rome Sea Port of Civitavecchia - Port Transfers with RomeCabs

Buon giorno and welcome to Stefano’s RomeCabs, Rome’s leading company for private Rome Sea Port Civitavecchia Transfers as well as Cruise Port Tours.

In this travel blog we go over the 4 types of Rome Sea Port Civitavecchia Transfers, with tips and advice for each type of transfer for a seamless, efficient, and enjoyable transfer experience.

.

The 4 types of Rome Sea Port Civitavecchia Transfers are:
.
  1. Fiumicino Airport (FCO) to Rome Sea Port of Civitavecchia
  2. Rome Accommodation to Rome Sea Port of Civitavecchia
  3. Rome Sea Port of Civitavecchia  to Rome Accommodation
  4. Rome Sea Port of Civitavecchia  to Fiumicino Airport (FCO)

.
.


.

1  FCO / FIUMICINO AIRPORT TO SEA PORT OF CIVITAVECCHIA

.

From Fiumicino Airport you have 2 options going to Civitavecchia: Going directly to your cruise ship for same day departure, or going to a Hotel Accommodation in Civitavecchia prior to your cruise departure.
.

* TRAVEL TIME: From Fiumicino Airport to Civitavecchia travel time is about 1 hour.

.

  • Going to Civitavecchia Cruise Port

Simply book a transfer from FCO Airport to Civitavecchia and provide all your flight arrival details, and drop off cruise ship name.

Follow detailed instructions (and watch the VIDEO) on How to meet Driver at FCO Airport.  

If you haven’t arrived at FCO Airport yet, watching the video will help you visually familiarize yourself with the area where your driver will be waiting for you.  

.

  • Going to Hotel in the City of Civitavecchia

Booking a transfer from FCO Airport to a hotel in Civitavecchia is very easy: just book a regular transfer from FCO to Civitavecchia, and instead of the Drop Off Ship Name, please include your Drop Off Hotel Name and Address in Civitavecchia.

The price is the SAME whether you will be going to the cruise ship or a hotel in the city of Civitavecchia.

.
.

HELPFUL TIPS for Transfers from Fiumicino Airport to Civitavecchia:

..

Plan to book an Early Morning Flight Arrival at FCO Airport in order to allow you plenty of extra time in case you experience flight delays, or delays at the airport (in customs or baggage claims).  

By booking your flight too close to the time your cruise ship departs, you risk missing your ship if you experience any unforeseen delays.

As there is quite a bit of walking from the baggage claims carousels where you collect your luggage to the Main Waiting Hall where you meet your driver, and then additional few minutes’ walking distance to the Designated Parking Area where your vehicle will be parked (as mandated by Airport Security), be sure to use the Luggage Trolleys available near the baggage carousels.

For travelers with mobility issues, be sure to request in advance via your Airline “Complimentary Wheelchair Assistance” so an airport staff member will meet you with a wheelchair when you deplane, and assist you all the way to the parked vehicle.

How to Be in Control of your SHARED CIVITAVECCHIA Transfers

2 Dec

Buon giorno and welcome to RomeCabs Travel Blog!

 

Sharing Transfers to and from Civitavecchia Cruise Port has become an option for many travelers to share costs. In this travel blog we show you How to be in Control of your Shared Civitavecchia Transfers with RomeCabs.

 

Unfortunately many generic shuttle services mean unpredictable pick up times, unpredictable wait times, unpredictable number of persons in the vehicle, unpredictable number of stops around Rome hotels or multiple cruise ships….it’s by and large an unpredictable experience.  

If you are arriving at the Airport and experience delays in customs or baggage claims (which often happens at Rome’s airport!), your shuttle service may not wait for you – after all, they have other passengers sharing the same vehicle you were supposed to be on that don’t want to wait on you.

 

Many travelers would like the option of a cost saving shared transfer to and/or from Civitavecchia, but with the benefits of a private service:  predictable pick up time, no wait times, knowing in advance how many people will be in the vehicle, and not being crammed in with strangers.

 

How to Be in Control of your SHARED CIVITAVECCHIA Transfers

 

Imagine if YOU are in charge of who shares your vehicle.

Imagine if YOU are in charge of the total number of passengers in your vehicle for YOUR personal comfort and space.

Imagine if YOU scheduled the pick up time and knew when to expect your driver.

Imagine if YOU knew your driver’s route in advance.

 

Privately Shared Civitavecchia Transfers with RomeCabs

Privately Shared Civitavecchia Transfers with RomeCabs

 

All of the above are possible on your next Civitavecchia Transfer with RomeCabs, and it’s EASY!!

.
It’s important also to consider which transfers are best shared and which are best private.

 

Private transfers are best for Airport Arrivals.

It is difficult to organize a transfer with others to arrive at the airport at the same time (or close).  Add in situations like missed connections, flight delays, lost luggage, and you will realize a shared transfer is not the best option for arrival transfers.

 

The best Shared Transfers to and from Civitavecchia are:

 

Rome Hotel to Civitavecchia

Civitavecchia to Rome Hotel

Civitavecchia to Airport

 

HOW TO ORGANIZE YOUR SHARED TRANSFER

 

By far the best way to organize your shared transfers is through Cruise Critic where you will find thousands of members, many who may also be cruising on your same ship!

 

Finding fellow cruise mates with similar itineraries is easy on a ship that accommodates thousands of cruisers.  If you’re not already a Cruise Critic member, this is a good time to sign up.

 

Once your travel plans are all set, place an ad on Cruise Critic Roll Call and invite other follow cruisers to share your specific transfers.

 

TIPS ON ORGANIZING YOUR SHARED CIVITAVECCHIA TRANSFERS

 

*  For Transfers between Rome hotels and Civitavecchia:

it’s important that all parties stay at centrally located hotels in Rome. Not only you save time while everyone is collected or dropped off at their respective hotels, but the fee for additional hotels are minimal when everyone’s hotels are centrally located.

 

* For Transfers from Civitavecchia to the Airport:

Make sure that everyone is flying out of the same airport (usually Fiumicino Airport, less likely from Ciampino Regional Airport).  Choose a pick up time at least 3 hours prior to the first flight departure so the party leaving first will arrive at the airport on time, and those flying out later have the option to wait at the airport as needed.

 

There is no extra fee for multiple terminal drop offs. Anyone staying at the Airport Hotel? No problem, that counts the same as going to the airport.

 

**  Do NOT organize shared transfers if some persons need to go to Rome and others to Fiumicino Airport.

Fiumicino Airport is about 40-60 minutes away from Rome, and this extra leg adds the equivalent of an additional airport transfer from the airport to Rome to drop off the rest of the party. It is not cost effective, and the party going to Rome will have to endure a 2 – 2.5 hour drive.

 

Organize shared transfers with everyone going TO, or leaving FROM the same cruise ship.   

Because some ships may dock at different times, or experience delays, you don’t want your group split up – especially if you have to travel to the airport for a flight.

 

Keep in mind total number of passengers and luggage capacity:

The maximum capacity per vehicle is 8 passengers, and total of 7-8 checked in suitcases and 7-8 carry on cases. Please keep in mind the maximum luggage capacity if you wish to form a group of 8 to ensure everyone and their luggage can be safely accommodated inside the vehicle.

 

For optimal space, comfort and travel time, we suggest up to 6 persons staying at no more than 3 hotels.

MAKE YOUR EMAIL EASILY UNDERSTOOD

If you are inquiring about multiple services, it helps to keep your email inquiry as concise as possible and stick with outlining the most important details.

If you contact companies abroad, there is the high probability that you are dealing with locals from that country whose English is not their first language.  To be best understood, use simple and straightforward words (refraining from abbreviations or slang) may prevent misunderstandings or requests for clarification.
