    Good morning/afternoon. My husband and I are traveling to Rome (December 6). Our flight arrives early(8:am). We are scheduled for a Viking cruise. Due to our early arrival, we want to head to the ancient port for the morning. Are there any options for a 4 hour tour( 12pm-4pm) from Ostia Antica back to the ship at Citavecchia Port? We have been to Rome on prior trips, so we are looking for those less visited sights to explore…
