Civitavecchia is the seaport for Rome, Italy. The city is
about 1 hour 10 minutes from Rome's Termini Station by commuter train, and
Leonardo da Vinci Airport at Fiumicino is 45-60 minutes from the cruise terminal
by coach transfer or taxi.
On the Wind Surf's Marseille-Rome cruise, Civitavecchia
was the final port. The ship arrived at 7 a.m., and passengers disembarked in
groups according to their flight times. All guests were asked to leave the ship
by 8:30 a.m. so the crew could get ready for the next cruise.
Civitavecchia is overshadowed by Rome, and to most cruisers,
it's simply a turnaround port. However, the city has a long history and is
blessed with its share of tourist attractions. It's also a gateway to other
places of interest along the coast, such as the
tombs at Tarquinia and the thermal baths of La Ficonella. Ferries to
Sardinia depart from Civitavecchia.
