Rome Italy Tourist Information and City Guide
Many Mediterranean cruises either depart from or terminate in Rome Italy. Unfortunately, Rome's cruise port is located far from the city of Rome or either of its two international airports. The name of the cruise port is called Civitavecchia.
The dilemma that all cruise passengers face is how to travel to and from the cruise terminal.
The easiest and most expensive modes of transportation are to either take a taxi or to pay your cruiseline an exorbitant amount to transfer you by coach. Either way, you could end up paying up to $200 per passenger.
A number of private companies also off transfer services to Civitavecchia, but they too are not cheap.
The least expensive mode of transportation is by train. You can travel between Rome and Civitavecchia for approximately USD $10 and between Rome and either of the airports for about $11. Although you can walk from the Civitavecchia Train station to the Civitavecchia Cruise Terminal, it takes approximately 20 minutes. Alternatively, you can catch a taxi for that last short leg.
