Getting there

Cruise ships dock at the port of Civitavecchia, about 50 miles north-west of Rome. A shuttle bus transports passengers from the various cruise-ship quays to Forte Michelangelo at the entrance to the port. From here it’s 77.5km into the centre of Rome, which takes 1 hour 20 minutes by car. Nearest airports are in Rome – Fiumicino (Leonardo da Vinci) 70 km away (52-minute drive) and Ciampino 91 km away (70-minute drive). But no matter where you’re travelling from, Sea-Lifts are able to guarantee a safe and timely transfer to Civitavecchia.


Town (main sights)

The large Forte Michelangelo is the most visited place in Civitavecchia. First commissioned by Pope Julius II to defend the port of Rome, the upper part of the tower was designed by Michelangelo. Also worth visiting are the castle which dates back to the 15th century and the cathedral, dedicated to St Francis of Assisi. North of the city at Ficoncella are the Terme Taurine baths, still popular with the locals.


Trips from the Port

The town is a major tourist location and an important port for arrival and departure to various Mediterranean locations. Every year hundreds of ferries, cruises and ships travelling the Mediterranean Sea stop at the port. From the port itself visitors can depart for France, Spain, Sicily, Corsica and Sardinia and North Africa.


Day trips (inland)

As well as tourists’ most popular destination – the city of Rome – day trips are also possible to: Lake Bracciano and Odescalchi Castle; Marina Velca Golf Club; Etruscan villages of Tarquinia, Ceri and Cerveti; Orvieto; The papal palace and Pope’s bath in Viterbo; Archaelogical park of Vulci; Tivoli villas – Villa D’Este and Hadrian’s Villa; Porto Ercole and the medieval village of Capalbio; Tuscan Wine Tasting. Sea-Lifts can offer transfers to or from all of these destinations and plenty more.



The harbour was constructed by the Emperor Trajan at the beginning of the 2nd century. In the early Middle Ages it was a Byzantine stronghold and became part of the Papal States in 728. It became a free port under Pope Innocent XII in 1696 and by the modern era was the main port of Rome. The French Empire occupied it in 1806. On 16 April 1859 the Rome and Civitavecchia Rail Road was opened for service.  During World War IIAllied bombings severely damaged Civitavecchia causing civilian casualties.
