We did the disembarkation tour in Rome. It is about 90 minutes from Citivecchia to Rome, so there is 3 hours of your 8 hour tour. We had a guide on the bus with us and then another guide joined us in Rome to tour the Vatican. That worked nice the two of them could herd us cats through very crowded sites. I saw our guide then next day walking from the Roman Forum to the Colosseum. I think he had a Princess lollipop then too.
