The modern port town of Civitavecchia in Italy might not be the first place people think of as a hub of international travel, but for cruise ship travelers it’s known as a global destination connecting the tourist hotspot of Rome with the rest of the world.

The city, located in the central Italian region of Lazio, is home to a massive port that services cruise ships year-round. It provides a convenient base with several options for making the journey of roughly 80 kilometers (50 miles) to Rome, 65 kilometers (40 miles) to Rome Airport Fiumicino and 80 kilometers to Ciampino Airport (49 miles). Whether you’re driving your own car, hiring a taxi, or taking the train you have plenty to choose from based on cost and time. And Civitavecchia even has some of its own attractions for those who want to stay local and not visit to Rome instead. While the city doesn’t have sights to rival Rome like the Colosseum, St. Peter’s Basilica, or the Trevi Fountain, it still has some local delights for intrepid explorers.

Consider touring the National Archeological Museum of Civitavecchia with its magnificent collection of statues, trinkets and other items from Ancient times to the Middle Ages. Or simply stroll along the beautiful promenade and relax at a local café with some food and drink. However, most people who dock at Civitavecchia on a cruise ship plan on making a trip to Rome to see as much as possible. While it’s difficult to cover a lot of Rome in a day, the information below will at least guide you on the best options to get there and back.
