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.
