Of the 35 excursions offered by Disney Cruise Line for Civitavecchia (Rome), here are our recommended port adventures, mostly for first-time visitors to Rome:

Low Budget: Why spend $99 for Rome on Your Own when there are cheaper guided tours that ferry you between the major sights? We like Imperial and Renaissance Rome with St. Peter’s Basilica (CV97, $85/$75 ages 3-9, 10.5-11 hours). Unlike most inexpensive tours, it actually takes you inside a major sight (awe-inspiring St. Peter's).

Big Budget: DCL offers several Signature Collection tours for Rome. The Best of Rome (CV25, $359/$299 ages 3-9, 10.5-11 hours) includes inside tours of the Vatican Museums, St. Peter's, and the Coliseum. The $190 difference between this and Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel, St. Peter's Basilica and Colosseum (CV32, $195/$169 ages 3-9, 10-10.5 hours) could turn out to be the stop at the Trevi Fountain and lunch, which are not included in the cheaper tour.

Tombs: For those with a morbid curiosity, two excursions take you to ancient tombs. Vatican City, The Coliseum, and Catacombs (CV28, $209/$179 ages 3-9, 10-10.5 hours) visits the deep, claustrophobic passages of the Roman catacombs, tours the Coliseum, and takes you to St. Peter's Basilica and Papal Tombs beneath the church. Unlike most tours, it includes lunch. If the big city doesn't appeal to you, Medieval Tarquinia and Etruscan Necropolis, A UNESCO World Heritage Site (CV90, $69/$59 ages 3-9, 4-4.5 hours) takes you to Tarquina to view Etruscan tombs and the well-preserved medieval town.

Sightseeing: We have to mention Taste of Rome (CV26, $129/$99 ages 3-9, 10-10.5 hours), as it's one of the only options if you wish to walk through the ruins of the Roman Forum. Otherwise, it's just another of many walking tours around the city. For a nice variation on the classic all-Vatican tour, Pope's Summer Estate, Vatican Gardens, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica (CV103, $209/$179 ages 3-9, 10.5-11 hours) takes you to Vatican City's signature sights before you head out of town to  visit the Pope's famed summer residence, southwest of Rome. 

Cultural: Walk, Eat and Wine Tour with Trevi Fountain and Colosseum (CV104, no prices posted, 9-9.5 hours) appeals to our taste buds, and you still get to see some of Rome's best-known sights.
