We departed from this port and if your departing from here stay in Hotel Traghetto less than a 2 minute walk to where the buses leave from to bring you to the check in terminal. The train to Rome is very very cheap ensure you get your train ticket stamped before getting on and it takes just under an hour to get to Roma termini also the port offers a bus to train station for a couple of euro highly recommend as the walk is doable approx 15-20mins but with luggage and the warm weather when we were there this was well worth it. Civitavecchia has a few nice restaurants and is nice for a stroll around but not much to actually do.

We flew into Rome where we started the cruise. When we returned, we spent an extra 3 days in Rome which I would highly recommend since you don't get to see the city before you get on the ship. Rome was amazing! We stayed at the Airport Hilton which has a free shuttle that goes back and forth into Rome several times a day. A BIG plus!

We flew into Rome from Boston and arranged with the Triano hotel in Civitavecchia to transfer there from the airport in a private van. It cost 110 Euro (about $125) for the two of us, but it was worth it. We stayed one night to ensure that we wouldn’t miss the boat. It was reasonably priced at 94 Euro ($110) including breakfast with cappuccinos. The location was fine as we were able to walk down to the beachfront and the pedestrian shopping area in about 15 minutes. They also offered a free shuttle to the cruise terminal so we signed up for the first one to arrive early and were the second and third people to board. It wasn’t fancy, but we’d recommend it for a pre-cruise stay.

Make sure to leave the ship early, it takes about 3 hours round trip from the port to travel into Rome and back to port. About 20 people almost missed the ship because the transfer from the train station to the bus station, not enough bus was available. Keep track of time.

You can get to Rome by train and it is cheaper than the excursions. You can find other skip the line tours to see the main attractions once you get there,

Don't waste $120 buying a transfer to Rome with the cruise line, and don't get on the "shuttle" to town, either. Just walk down through the port, and you'll be at the train station in 20 minutes. A ticket to Rome is under 5EUR, and the train to St. Peter's is 45 minutes.
