My husband & I are going to be arriving at Civitavecchia on a NCL ship on October 25th of this year. The ship arrives at 6 a.m. I'm sure it will be an hour or more until we could disembark. Instead of taking the train to Rome booked by the ship (approximately $400) I wonder how easy & reliable it is to walk to the train station & take a train on our own (bear in mind that while we've traveled in Europe by rail before it was in an English speaking country). Also, once we get to Rome, if we have purchased a Rome City Pass or "skip the line" ticket, will we still have a long line to get into the major attractions (Vatican, St. Peter's, Colosseum, etc). We will have approximately 7 hours I'm guessing. I know that is a very short time, but it is what it is. Many thanks for your help.
