Meet your private air-conditioned vehicle dockside under the gangway exit of your ship and transfer directly to Rome. The driver will wait for you at the pier just outside the ship with a sign with your name on.
You'll enjoy a scenic 1 hour drive to the first place: the Christian Catacombs.

Once you get to the Catacombs your entrance tickets will be purchased on the spot. Your driver will be able to help you complete the task. Then you'll start your visit inside with a small-group tour in your prefered language given by the Catacombs staff (available languages: English, Spanish, German, French).

In Castel Gandolfo you’ll visit The Pontifical Villas of Castel Gandolfo on your own with audioguides (available languages: English, Spanish, German, French, Russian), then you’ll enjoy the pretty historical centre of Castel Gandolfo town and the scenic view of the Albano Lake with the a stop for a very good lunch.

After lunch back to your ship.

Consider that in high season, from April to October, to be shure to enjoy the Tour, you must book this Tour minimum 30/60 days before or may be possible that the entrances in the Pontifical Villa could be sold out.

The Pontifical Villas of Castel Gandolfo are increasingly accessible to visitors. Following the opening to the public of the Barberini Garden and the inauguration, within the Apostolic Palace, of the Museums of the Gallery of the Portraits of the Pontiffs, now the most private and reserved areas of the papal residence can also be admired and enjoyed by pilgrims and tourists. Many of the exclusive places in the Papal Apartment will be revealed to visitors: from the Bedchamber to the Private Chapel, from the Library to the Study, along a rich exhibition itinerary conceived, arranged and managed by the Vatican Museums.

The Pontifical Villas of Castel Gandolfo comprise about 55 hectares (11 more than Vatican City) of which 30 make up a garden while 25 are used for farming. The latter is carried out with full regard for the aesthetics proper to countryside gardening. The entire papal residence enjoys all the privileges of extraterritoriality.

When one visits the pontifical estates or “Villa Pontificia” for the first time, he does not expect to come across the ruins of what is perhaps the most famous villa of ancient Rome, the “Albanum Domitiani”, the magnificent summer residence of the Emperor Domitian (81-96 AD), which once covered roughly 14 kilometres along the Appian Way towards Lake Albano. 

At the end of the tour the driver will take you back to the port of Civitavecchia, leaving you outside your ship.
