How to get from Civitavecchia to Rome?

Hello dear cruise friend, your cruise is booked and it will take you to Civitavecchia! But before you set off to conquer the Colosseum and the Trevi Fountain, a crucial question arises: how to reach Rome from Civitavecchia?

Don’t panic, I have put together a complete guide for you on the different options available to you for reaching Rome from Civitavecchia, starting with the most economical.

The train

The ace of the economical ticket – Sail to Rome at a low price!

  • Price. 10 euros return. The train station is a 20-minute walk from the port. If you wish, you can take a bus to the train station.
  • Journey time. 1h30 journey in total between the time to reach the station and the journey.
  • Advantages. Unbeatable price, several departures per day, decent comfort.
  • Disadvantages. The journey can be a bit long, the trains are not always the most modern.
  • Travel standing up because the train can be crowded.


Convenient and affordable – Ride in comfort to Rome!

  • Price. 30€ per person (return) it was until now 25 euros but it increased recently, too bad!
  • Journey time: 1h
  • Advantages. Frequent departures, pick-up at the port and Termini station in Rome, comfort guaranteed.
  • Disadvantages. Less economical than the train but very comfortable, wifi on board and no need to walk 20 minutes.

The taxi

The luxury and comfort option

  • Price. Between 120€ and 150€ per trip and 240 → 250 euros return with the discount.
  • Journey time: approximately 1 hour
  • Advantages. Direct transport from the port to Rome, maximum comfort, personalized service.
  • Cons: The most expensive option, beware of unofficial taxis that might inflate prices.
  • I do not recommend this option. You can go to Rome with the same benefits for a fair price!

Excursion with your cruise company

  • I also advise you not to take the boat trip.
  • Rate on the boat – 99 euros per person
  • They take you to Rome, once in Rome you manage and they bring you back.
  • You have to pay the right price, even if you can afford it!!!

To leave the port of Civitavecchia with ease, follow these steps:
