Rome Civitavecchia Cruise Port Tours

411 Reviews
Located 50 miles (80 kilometers) northwest of Rome, the Civitavecchia cruise port is a popular jumping-off point for shore excursions to Italy’s capital city. Home to some of the world’s most important art and architecture, and bursting with bustling piazzas and lively restaurants, Rome is a highlight of any Mediterranean cruise. 

The Basics
To see the important sights in this busy European capital, maximize your time by taking a tour, perhaps a private one with a driver and skip-the-line tickets to the crowded Colosseum and Vatican Museums. Most Rome tours and shore excursions last a day to cover top attractions including Trevi Fountain, Piazza Navona, the Pantheon, Sistine Chapel, and St. Peter’s Square and Basilica. Experience the city’s culinary traditions in trattorias and cafes lining its squares.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Colosseum and Vatican Museums (including the Sistine Chapel) are among the most visited attractions in Italy, so be sure to book a tour with skip-the-line tickets.
  • Most Roman churches, including St. Peter’s Basilica, require clothing that covers shoulders and knees to enter.  
  • Many archaeological sites in Rome, including the Colosseum and Roman Forum, are outdoors. Bring a hat and sunscreen in summer.
  • Even driving tours of Rome require a fair amount of walking; comfortable footwear and weather-appropriate clothing is recommended.
  • The city’s metro and bus systems are famously overcrowded and slow; it is almost always faster and easier to get around by private car.

How to Get There
Shore excursions and private tours generally include port pickup and drop-off, and shuttle buses and private transfers are available for visitors heading to the city or Fiumicino and Ciampino airports. You can reach Rome by train from the Civitavecchia train station, a 10-minute walk from the port or a short shuttle ride from Civitavecchia's landmark Michelangelo Fort. Trains run every half hour to Rome’s Termini station, and the trip takes about an hour.

Port Information
Most of the largest cruise lines stop at the Civitavecchia port. Italian is the most widely spoken language here. The local currency is the euro; ATMs are easy to find, and foreign exchange bureaus are near the docks.
