Civitavecchia Cruise and Ferry Port

How to get to and from your ship in the Port of Rome.

From: Civitavecchia (Port of Rome)

The Port of Civitavecchia is what cruise lines mean when they show "Rome" on a cruise itinerary. The deepwater port, which was founded by the Roman Emperor Trajan more than a thousand years ago, is 80 km or 50 miles from the capital. Civitavecchia welcomes more than 500 cruises a year, and half a dozen ferry lines carry passengers, cars, and freight to Sardinia, Sicily, and other points in the Mediterranean.
