Civitavecchia cruise port near Rome

Civitavecchia, the cruise port for Rome, is a medium-sized town about 80km north west of Rome. Civitavecchia is about an hour's drive from the centre of Rome, not an insignificant distance.

It is possible to do Rome independently by train from Civitavecchia and we tell you how, but there is also a good choice of great value public and private shore excursions available that take the stress out of the day.

You won't be able to see everything in Rome in one day, but an organised shore excursion offers efficient use of your time.

Rome by train from Civitavecchia, for total independence

Civitavecchia train from Rome at station

There are no direct scheduled public bus services between Rome and Civitavecchia, but there is a good rail service between Civitavecchia and Termini Station, the main public transport hub in the centre of Rome.

Travelling from Civitavecchia a typical train will stop at S. Pietro (40 min), Trastevere (50 min), Ostiense (55 min) and finally Termini (70 min). S. Pietro is around 15 minutes' walk to the Vatican and St Peter's Square.

Punctuality is not a strong point of this railway service and delays are common so give yourself plenty of time to get back to the ship.

Civitavecchia Express - non-stop train to Rome from Civitavecchia cruise port

In 2019 a new rail service was launched called the Civitavecchia Express. This service is designed for cruise passengers, as it connects Civitavecchia with Roma San Pietro and Roma Ostiense stations. Civitavecchia station is about a mile from the cruise port but there are plenty of taxis and a local bus available to take you there.

Currently the Civitavecchia Express service runs only four daily journeys. Two in the morning, bound for Rome and two in the afternoon bound for Civitavecchia. The timetable was thought out to meet the needs of many cruise travellers who wish to visit Rome in a day. The train times are quicker and more reliable than the commuter trains, allowing an easier and with guaranteed seating, more comfortable transfer into Rome.
