Don't expect to see all of Rome in a day. All the same, whether you're on a cruise stop or just passing through on a tour of Italy, here's a varied sampling platter of Rome's highlights!
Sunny day? Be sure to meander around the Galleria Borghese's picturesque park and gardens. If you've got time, pop inside the gorgeous villa for a who's who of Renaissance art.
This world-renowned archeological site is the closest you'll come to a glimpse at city life in Ancient Rome. Even better, it's right by the Colosseum and Palatine Hill too!
A day tour won't allow enough time to savor life at all Rome's piazzas, but make the most of it by seeing this cultural emblem - celebrated in numerous films - at Trevi Square.
Seeing Michelangelo's Renaissance-defining ceiling might be a bit of stretch at peak season. Be sure to fit it in by pre-booking skip-the-line tickets to the Vatican museums!
If you're early enough, mingle with the locals at Campo de' Fiori, one of Rome's favorite markets. If the stalls are already packed up, fret not! Stick around to enjoy the vibrant café culture.
Civitavecchia is the main cruise port for excursions to Rome. The easiest way to reach the city center is by pre-booking a private or shared transfer, or by taking a taxi. However, there are also two or three trains per hour to Roma Termini (Rome's main station). It costs about €5 each way, but you could save money with the BIRG ticket (day pass), which will get you there and back, as well as covering buses, trams, and the metro for the entire day.
Since you're not there for long, you'll probably want to rely on taxis. Unfortunately, this is easier said than done in Rome, where hailing down a cab in the tourist-heavy areas is nearly impossible. Utilize the metro wherever possible, as buses and trams can also be slowed by traffic. There are two metro lines: Line A (orange) runs between the northwest and southeast, and Line B (blue) runs north to south, with a third line due to open in 2016.
