Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy Luxury Cruises

Overview

When you disembark at Civitavecchia, you can catch one of the free shuttle buses which connect the cruise docking point to the main gates at the front of the port. From here you can explore the quaint town itself on foot, go further afield and discover the surrounding areas by bus or catch the train to the historical city of Rome.

Located on the north western coast of Italy, Civitavecchia is a popular stopping point on many Mediterranean cruise itineraries and is only a short train journey away from Rome. The town itself boasts a plethora of activities for visitors, with everything from fascinating museums, ancient ruins and green spaces to fun-filled water parks, delicious restaurants and beautiful beaches. So whether you want an action-packed say of sightseeing or would rather take it easy and relax, there’s something for everyone to enjoy in Civitavecchia.

Sightseeing in Civitavecchia

Civitavecchia has a rich and colourful history, with vast evidence of this available in the form of charming historical sites. Even if you’re not a history buff, these attractions provide a captivating day out which will leave you feeling enlightened. If you’ve already visited Rome or don’t fancy the trip, here are some of the best things to see without leaving Civitavecchia:

Aquafelix: just a short 15 minute bus ride from the port, Aquafelix is the largest water park in central Italy and is a fantastic place for families to visit. This park covers 8,000m2 and offers loads of things to do, with numerous water slides, swimming pools, wave machine, Jacuzzis and waterfalls. When it comes to lunch, there are loads of options, with numerous bars, restaurants and shops available throughout the park.

Roman baths: an impressive archaeological excavation of Roman baths is found just ten minutes away from the port. The baths cover more than 20,000m2 and boast many compelling things to see, including mosaic pavements, numerous ancient baths and service rooms which date back as far as the Age of Augustus. Taking a camera is a must to commemorate your visit to this incredible and historically rich site.

National Archaeological Museum: located in the heart of Civitavecchia’s historic centre, this museum is found in a magnificent building which dates back to the 18th century. There are three floors to explore, each one displaying numerous Roman artefacts which were discovered during excavations in the surrounding area. Two of the most popular exhibitions include the Roman copy of a Socrates portrait and a statue of Apollo.

Shopping in Civitavecchia

Apart from a handful of local shops, there isn’t much in the way of retail therapy in Civitavecchia. The few shops in the town come in various forms, including small supermarkets, souvenir kiosks and clothes stores.

If you’ve got your heart set on shopping, then it’s best to catch the train to Rome where you’ll find a seemingly never-ending number of stylish boutiques and shops which sell everything you can imagine. From top-end brand names to individual designer labels, you’ll find just what you’re looking for in Rome.

Eating Out in Civitavecchia

The main street found between the train station and the harbour is where you’ll find the majority of cafes and restaurants in Civitavecchia. Thanks to its popularity with the locals, the area is known for serving quality meals for low cost prices, so you can grab a bite to eat and indulge in some people watching without having to spend a small fortune.

Italian is one of the most beloved cuisines in the world and Civitavecchia is a fantastic place to try it. The restaurants in this town serve a variety of delicious Italian specialities, including fresh seafood pasta and homemade pizzas which are to-die-for. Don’t forget to wash down your dish with a glass of local wine.
