How long does the shuttle ride take?

The shuttle ride from Civitavecchia to Rome usually takes around 1 hour. In some cases, it may happen that the journey takes a quarter of an hour longer, but these variations remain rare. Overall, the journey is very fast and reliable, allowing you to reach Rome efficiently.

Is the shuttle suitable for large luggage?

Yes, the shuttles are designed to accommodate large luggage, which is ideal for cruise travelers.

Can we eat or drink on the shuttle?

Want to snack on the shuttle? Unfortunately, it’s a no-go! The driver will keep an eye on things and will tell you to wait an hour before biting into your croissant. We tried the pastries with our little crumb-proof napkins, but the driver was not a fan. No arms, no chocolate? Well, in the Civitavecchia shuttle, no chocolate either 😂😂! Well, okay, the joke was lame, but don’t worry, the transfer only lasts an hour, no need to starve!😉🍫

Are there toilets on the shuttle?

No, there are no toilets on the shuttle. If a craving arises, I recommend heading to the bars not far from Largo Della Pace square. However, please note that you will need to consume something, such as coffee, to use the toilet. If the wait becomes too long, wait until you arrive in Rome, where you will find toilets at Rome Termini station (1 euro). Personally, I do not recommend the latter, because they are often very dirty. Opt instead for a bar, a more hygienic and pleasant option.😇

Do you need to book in advance or can you buy tickets on site?

Advance reservation or tickets on site?

As a Rome fan, I take these shuttles at every stopover in Civitavecchia. They allow me to explore the city in complete peace, and even after several visits, Rome is still full of wonders to discover.
