How to reach Civitavecchia for your cruise
If you are spending some days in Rome at the end of a cruise, you need to think about a way to get to the city from the port town of Civitavecchia, or the other way round if you are setting sail on a ship at the end of your Roman holiday. Worry not, though, as From Home to Rome has got you covered!
Civitavecchia and Rome: a most comfortable train link
There are two train connections every hour to and from Rome cruise port of Civitavecchia. All regional trains, namely the FL5 line, depart from Roma Termini, as early as 6:12 am, and as late as 11:27 pm. It is a one-hour journey for €5/person.
If you choose an apartment with From Home to Rome and you’re staying at, say, the Black & White, Antiqua, La terrazza di Elly or Fornaci, you need not call at Roma Termini because a closer train station, Roma S. Pietro, will do. More apartments like Wanderlust are connected to the Roma Trastevere station, which is ideally served with trains both to/from Civitavecchia and to/from Fiumicino airport.
If being close to any of these train stations is something you are looking for in your Rome apartment, contact us today to get a complete list of accommodations with our best quote!
Post updated on June 2019: more trains from Civitavecchia
Travelers headed to Rome after their cruise or wanting to reach their ship after their stay in Rome can now take advantage of a new dedicated train service on top of the existing ones between the capital city and Civitavecchia.
Similar to the Leonardo Express operating from the airport at Fiumicino, the new train has been dubbed “Civitavecchia Express” and is 22 minutes faster than a local commuter train, as it only calls at Roma San Pietro (by the Vatican) and Roma Ostiense (two subway stops from the Colosseum or one from the Circus Maximus, among others).
With a cost of 10 Euros per person (or 15 Euros for a round trip), it’s more expensive than the local trains available but is more comfortable, with no limits on luggage taken on board and with a secured seat as soon as tickets are booked.
The Civitavecchia Express operates Monday to Saturday at 9:35AM and 10:15AM from Civitavecchia (but watch out, it leaves at 8:30AM on Sundays!) and everyday at 3:37PM and 4:30PM from Roma Ostiense.
Navigating the Civitavecchia train station once inside it is easy enough, but for those looking for more information about the new service there is a dedicated post at this address.
How to get to your cruise ship once in Civitavecchia
Right in front of Civitavecchia train station, the local bus to the cruise terminal takes ten minutes, and costs €2, with buses running every ten minutes, but beware of a two-hour lunch break (!) from 12 to 2 pm. Cruise lines would provide a dedicated service from the bus hub into the cruise terminal.
Well, it’s quite easy, though a private car service directly to/from your Rome apartment will make it easier on you and your bags, and you can surely depend on our certified provider for a really competitive price quotation. This is the most comfortable way for you to enjoy the beautiful rolling hills along the fifty mile drive up the Mediterranean shore off Rome.
