Get ready for a wonderful private shore excursion from Civitavecchia Cruise Port. You will spend 4 hours with a private English-speaking driver visiting the nearby Santa Severa Castle. You will enjoy a wine-tasting with local snacks and learn all about medieval Italian history in this castle on the sea. It will be a relaxing half day off the boat that you will never forget.
At either 9:30am or 2pm meet your private English-speaking driver right where your ship docks at Civitavecchia Port. Be whisked away in a luxury vehicle just 30 minutes away for a 4 hour trip to Santa Severa Castle. For those visiting Civitavecchia and looking for a more relaxed alternative to a full day tour to Rome. Our aim is for you to have a worry free day, so we will purchase in advance your entrance fees for Santa Severa Castle. We know that everybody has a different touring style, so you can choose to pay an additional supplement on site for an audioguide or wander around the castle's collections at your own pace.
Inside Santa Severa Castle there is a wealth of history waiting to be discovered. There is a maritime museum, real life medieval costumes and a tower offering stunnning views over the sea that you can climb for a small supplement.
We said this would be a relaxing trip and we were not lying! What better way to chill out than with a locally produced wine-tasting accompanied by some traditional treats from the Lazio region? We will book it in advance for you at Santa Severa Castle itself. If you don't want to drink wine then you can still enjoy an organic fruit juice. All produce is top quality.
When you have finished your driver will take you back to Civitavecchia Port to catch your cruise ship.
