Civitavecchia cruise port (Rome, Italy)

  • The name Civitavecchia is translated to "ancient town". The port city covers a total area of approx 71,95 km2 (27,78 ml2) and has a population of around 53,000 inhabitants (2015 census).
  • The huge Forte Michelangelo was commissioned for the first time from Donato Bramante by Pope Julius II, in order to defend the port of Rome. However, the upper part of the "maschio" tower was designed by Michelangelo, and his name is generally applied to this fortress.
  • At Ficoncella, north of the city, are located the Terme Taurine baths that are frequented by Romans and are still well known by the Civitavecchiesi. The contemporary name stems from the fig plants among the pools. Also next to the town is the site of the cruise ship docks. 
  • Civitavecchia-Rome port has a total of 8 cruise ship terminals, with 15 berths (quays), 5 parking lots, over 3200 m / 9850 ft in piers. Civitavecchia Cruise Terminal ("Terminal Venezia Passeggeri" in Italian) is the world's 13th busiest cruise port. Ships arrive in Civitavecchia-Rome from Adriatic Sea via Guidecca Canal. Civitavecchia-Rome is a major turn-around port and among the most popular ports of call in Mediterranean, and Europe.

  • The port is used for ferries, cargo and cruise ships. The distance between the Civitavecchia port and Rome’s International Airports is almost 31 miles, or 50 minutes traveling time from the airport to the pier. The rate of a taxi is about 160 euros.
  • The Civitavecchia Port was founded in the 2nd century by Emperor Trajan, a Roman one. He gave the name Centumcellae and still you can see Trajan’s Port remains. In the end of 15th century, pirates damaged the port. This was the reason for building a fortress to protect the Civitavecchia Port. This was done in 1537 by Michelangelo, instigated by Pope Julius II.
  • To go Civitavecchia most passengers first take flight to Rome's airport (Aeroporto Internazionale Leonardo da Vinci di Fiumicino) then travel by train Civitavecchia. Travel time is between 1:30-1:45 hours. From the rail station to the cruise port is approx 1 km (0,6 ml). However, the distance is easily walkable (along the pebbled beach). At the port's entrance are available 3 car parks. Also from here passengers take the free bus shuttle. Shuttles serve both ferry and cruise ship passengers. Be careful, as different shuttles go to different terminals.

(NEW) "12 B North" Amerigo Vespucci Cruise Terminal

In November 2016, Port Civitavecchia started the construction of a new cruise terminal facility, with scheduled completion in 2018. The 10,000 m2 (107,650 ft2) modern building is able to handle around 4,500 cruise passengers and around 9,000 pieces of luggage at a time.

The EUR 20 million project includes building 2 terminals - the bigger "12 B North" and the smaller "Terminal 12". The building has a 280 m2 (3000 ft2) baggage claim area, a 410 m2 (4400 ft2) waiting area, large bus parking, taxi drop off and pick-up area. On ground floor are passenger and luggage facilities (check-in with 60 counters and around 90 LED monitors for updated information / including on current itineraries). In the Atrium are located crew room and VIP lounge.
