Shore Excursions - From the port of Civitavecchia - Roman Countryside (Castel Gandolfo, Appian Way and Catacombs)

Roman Countryside (Castel Gandolfo, Appian Way and Catacombs)

The tour normally starts at 08.00 a.m. at the port of Civitavecchia where one of our driving guides (perfectly bilingual) will be waiting for you holding a sign with your name on.
Italy boosts a wealth of beautiful countryside and the area surrounding Rome is no exception!
Set out a drive from the pier through the Roman hill.
The Campagna around Rome is enchanting; rolling hills and lush farmlands are dotted with farmhouses, villas and palaces.
You will reach the lake Albano in the crater of an extinct volcano.
Winding your way up the top of nearby hill you will stop for a short stroll in the lovely medieval town of Castel Gandolfo, where the popes have kept their summer residence for centuries. In fact Castel Gandolfo's Papal Palace and gardens are actually part of the sovereign Vatican State.
At noon enjoy a typical local lunch with plenty of home-made wine. After lunch you will head to Rome along the old Appian way, one of the first ancient roman military roads.
One of the most impressive sights you will see along the way is the tomb of Cecilia Metella, mausoleum of a roman noblewoman, the daughter of a roman general, who lived during the time of Julio Cesar.
Proceed by the Catacombs, the curious underground maze of tunnels hallowed out of volcanic rock, where the earlier Christians, persecuted by the Romans, had to practice their religion in secret and bury their dead.
Drive by the bath of Caracalla, Colosseum and Venice Square. Return to the ship by 5:00 pm.
