How to travel to the cruise port of Civitavecchia, Rome

If you are going on a cruise and you embark from Civitavecchia (Rome, Italy), you need to travel from the airport to the port. This is not always easy because of the language restrictions. Our Italian is close to zero and we succeeded, so you can also achieve this. Arriving from Frankfurt at Fiumicino airport, we saw several stands offering transfers to the town of Civitavecchia and the cruise port at price between 130 and 110 euro per person. The distance is approximately 80 km. We thought this was expensive and took the train from the airport to Rome Trastevere, there you change trains on platform 2 in the direction of Pisa or Civitavecchia. The total journey takes about 1,5 hours and costs you 12 euro per person. When you arrive in Civitavecchia you have to walk about 200 metres to the fortress and there you get a free of charge shuttle bus to your cruise ship. With a party of two people you save around 200 euro for the trip. We hope this is a good tip. When we arrived at the port, three cruise ships were docked: the Costa Romantica, the MSC Fantasia and the Mariner of the Seas of Royal Caribbean. Our ship, the Celebrity Silhouette only arrived the next day, so we had time to visit the city.

Als je op cruise gaat en je vertrekt van Civitavecchia (Rome, Italië), dan moet je van de luchthaven naar de cruise haven reizen. Dit is niet altijd gemakkelijk vanwege de taal. Ons Italiaans is bijna onbestaand maar we zijn er geraakt, dus jullie kunnen het ook. We kwamen aan Fiumicino luchthaven na een vlucht uit Frankfurt en zagen verschillende kantoren die transfers aanboden naar Civitavecchia en de cruise terminals. De prijs was tussen 130 en 110 euro per persoon voor een afstand van ongeveer 80 km. We vonden dit duur en namen de train van de luchthaven naar Rome Trastevere, daar moet je overstappen op perron 2 richting Pisa of Civitavecchia. De totale reistijd is 1,5 uur en kost maar 12 euro per persoon. Als je aankomt moet je maar 200 meter wandelen naar het fort en daar zijn gratis bussen naar de cruise terminals. Per koppel spaar je ongeveer 200 euro uit voor de reis. We hopen dat jullie iets aan deze tip hebben. Toen we aankwamen, waren er 3 cruise schepen aangemeerd: de Costa Romantica, de MSC Fantasia en de Mariner of the Seas van Royal Caribbean. Ons schip, de Celebrity Silhouette kwam pas de volgende dag aan, zodat we genoeg tijd hadden de stad de bezoeken..

  3. One of these days in your travels, a guy is going to come up to you and show you a nice brand-new deck of cards on which the seal is not yet broken, and this guy is going to offer to bet you that he can make the Jack of Spades jump out of the deck and squirt cider in your ear. But, son, do not bet this man, for as sure as you are standing there, you are going to end up with an earful of cider.
