Rome via Civitavecchia

Start planning your cruise and book your excursions in Rome

Discover the culture and colour of Civitavecchia, an MSC Mediterranean Cruises destination. This Italian gem is an enjoyable flight from many European and non-European cities. Celebrated for its 16th-century Michelangelo Fort, ancient Taurine Baths, and marble Vanvitelli fountain, the port is a convenient starting point for visiting Rome, Italy’s regal and romantic capital.

 
MSC Cruises excursions offer plenty of exciting things to see including:
 
• The Colosseum
• The Trevi Fountain
• The Vatican
 
Not far from Civitavecchia lies Rome, one of the world’s most distinguished cities. Be entranced by its many architectural wonders including the famous Colosseum. An ancient amphitheatre in the centre of the capital, built between 70 and 80 AD, this UNESCO World Heritage Site was commissioned by Roman Emperor Vespasian to entertain more than 50,000 people! On this MSC Cruises excursion, you’ll take a peek inside the arena, imagining the gladiator fights and mock sea-battles that took place at its centre. Then, visit the Roman Forum and the Palatine Hill, a short walk from the amphitheatre. 
 
The Trevi Fountain is an icon of Rome, a Baroque beauty uniting architecture, sculpture, rocks, and water. Admire the spectacle on an MSC Cruises excursion and see this 18th-cenury landmark close-up.  Showcasing mythological figures, including Triton on a shell-shaped chariot, the Trevi Fountain is an Italian masterwork. This landmark structure has featured in films such as La Dolce Vita and Roman Holiday
 
A journey to Rome isn’t complete without a visit to Vatican City, located in the heart of the Italian Capital. Pick an MSC Cruises excursion to see St. Peter's Square, St. Peter's Basilica, the Vatican Museums, and the Sistine Chapel. If you arrive in Rome on a Sunday, you’ll be able to attend the Pope's noon Angelus Prayer. Or enjoy a guided tour of the Vatican Museums which houses works by Da Vinci, Caravaggio, van Gogh, Dali, Picasso, and Gaugin.

    Italy

    History, gastronomy and fashion
    History, gastronomy and fashion

    A cruise to Italy is an emotional roller coaster. Rome is a tremendous city quite unlike any other, and in terms of historical sights outstrips everywhere else in the country by some way.
     
    Liguria, the small coastal province along the north-west coast, has long been known as the “Italian Riviera” and is accordingly crowded with sun-seekers for much of the summer.
    In Veneto the main focus of interest is, of course, Venice: a unique city, and every bit as beautiful as its reputation would suggest. Tuscany in central Italy represents perhaps the most commonly perceived image of the country, with its classic rolling countryside and the art-packed towns of Florence and Pisa.

    The south proper begins with the region of Campania. Its capital, Naples, is a unique, unforgettable city, the spiritual heart of the Italian south. Puglia, the “heel” of Italy, has underrated pleasures, too, notably the landscape of its Gargano peninsula and the souk-like qualities of its capital, Bari.

    As for Sicily, the island is really a place apart, with a wide mixture of attractions ranging from some of the finest preserved Hellenistic treasures in Europe, to a couple of Italy’s most appealing Mediterranean beach resorts in Taormina and Cefalù, not to mention some gorgeous upland scenery.
