Reviews of Shore Excursion from the Civitavecchia P...

Reviewed by Diane M. from

It's hard to grasp the history that went on here.

We were met at the pier by a very interesting driver who showed us a lot of the highlights of Rome. At the Colosseum we had a private guide who was very knowledgeable. We used Italy XP for 4 private excursions for our group of 8. Each time they sent a confirmation text the day prior. We were very satisfied.
