Civitavecchia Cruise Port

Guide to Cruise Ports and Terminals

Civitavecchia Cruise Port

The town of Civitavecchia is home to Rome's cruise ship terminal.  It is located a long way from the city of Rome, so cruise passengers need to plan their transfers carefully.

The same thing is true for passengers transferring between Civitavecchia Port and either of Rome's two airports (Fiumicino and Ciampino).

Public Transportation

Port Shuttle Service

The Port of Civitavecchia provides a free shuttle service for cruise ship passengers between the ship's pier and the port entrance.

Taxis and local buses are available at the port exit.

Metro Service

There is no metro service available in Civitavecchia.

Bus/Coach Service

Most cruise lines offer a transfer service between the cruise ship and downtown Rome and/or Fiumicino airport.  Unfortunately they often charge their passengers large amounts for this service.

Train Service

The Civitavecchia railway station (Stazione di Civitavecchia) is the station that serves the Port of Civitavecchia.  It is a fifteen minute walk (800 meters) from the port entrance.

Trains depart every 30 minutes for Rome and the journey takes 70-90 minutes.  Please note that there are four main stations in central Rome (Roma Termini, Roma Tiburtina, Roma Ostiense, Roma Trastevere).

To travel from the Civitavecchia railway station to Rome's Fiumicino Aeroporto (FCO), you'll need to take two trains:

  1. Civitavecchia to Roma Ostiense  (40-75 minutes)
  2. Roma Ostiense to Fiumicino Aeroporto (30 minutes)
Note: When travelling between Civitavecchia Port and Fiumicino Airport, it might also be possible to transfer at Roma Termini or Roma Trastevere stations. Ask the ticket vendor which is best for you.

Trains run between Roma Ostiense and Fiumicino Aeroporto every 30 minutes. 

Please visit the Trenitalia website for current cost and schedule information.
