Civitavecchia (Rome) Shore Excursions

Rome

Rome

Being the Port for Rome, Civitavecchia is the gateway to one of the most spectacular and interesting travel destinations in the world. It’s an easy walk from the cruise port to Civitavecchia train station, and it’s about an hour by train to Rome's central Termini Station. A day’s tour of Rome is bound to be busy, and ‘don’t miss’ sights include the Colosseum, the Pantheon, the Forum, the Spanish Steps, the Trevi Fountain, and the Vatican.


Forte Michelangelo

Forte Michelangelo

The 16th Century fortress Forte Michelangelo stands imposingly over the port. It was commissioned by Pope Julius II and finished in 1535 by Giulano Leno. The central tower was designed by Michelangelo. Constructed on the ruins of Roman barracks of the Imperial Fleet, the fort is made from walls over 6 metres in depth.


Cathedral of San Francesco d'Assisi

Cathedral of San Francesco d'Assisi

The Cathedral of San Francesco d'Assisi was built in the 18th century on the site of an earlier church, extended after 1769 when Cardinal Lorenzo Ganganelli became Pope Clement XIV. The cathedral’s very attractive Baroque-Neoclassical design, features intricate frescos and stained glass windows. To reach the cathedral, head for Piazza Vittoria Emanuele II, just a short walk from Forte Michelangelo.


Civitavecchia Beach

Civitavecchia Beach

Steps leading from the seafront pavement, just opposite the train station, lead to Civitavecchia's wide sandy beach. The sea is very clean and fine for swimming.


Archaelogical Museum

Archaelogical Museum

The Archaelogical Museum is situated in an eighteenth Century building once owned by Pope Clemente XIII and constructed to house the papal garrison. It is an ideal place for the presentation of exhibits mainly of Estrucan and Roman origin. The Museum is on Largo Plebiscito, also within close walking distance of the port.
