Could anyone tell me if the transfer bus passes any sites on the way to the cruise port? Sites like the Colosseum, Pantheon, Trevi Fountain?
Unfortunately we will be flying in and will need to go to the port right away not to miss our ship. Sure would be nice if we were to pass at least the Colosseum so we could view it from the transfer bus. We will have to visit Rome another time. We will, however, be enjoying an extended stay of a few extra days in Venice before heading home.

Having driven this area many times I can tell you positively that when you go from airport to Civitavecchia (the port) you will not go anywhere near Rome. The airport (FCO) is located West of the city (almost on the coast) and the road from airport to the port is an excellent highway (the A12) where you will see absolutely nothing of interest. The route never gets within 15 miles of Rome. Sorry for the bad news, but its good to know the truth.

Thanks Hank, you are the epitome of travel knowledge. I love reading your comments. Now I know that I will schedule more time in Rome on the next trip. This time I really wanted to spend extra days at the end of the cruise in Venice. Thanks again.
