*We will based this post on people that will be doing a cruise and will have only one day to spend in Rome. As, this is a valid scenario for most of our clients as well.
Private transportation from the ship
First, you would need to know that the Port of Rome – Civitavecchia- is located a little outside the city. Therefore, it would not be very wise to get a taxi to go to any of the places in city center. It is approximately an hour ride. In this case it would be better to arrange a private transportation through your cruise line or a travel agency to at least get pick up straight from the ship and dropped of at the location you want to go.
Secondly, you can arrange a car at your disposal for the time you will be in Rome. I know it may sound pricey but if you plan to share the service with some of your friends from the cruise, then the cost per person would be cheaper then taking a cab.
