Rome's main port, Civitavecchia or "old town," is located 80km outside the city, and can easily be reached in about one hour from Rome's Termini station via the local train, buses and private transport companies. A departure point for Mediterranean cruises and beyond, Roman Emperor Trajan began construction in 106 A.D.
See & Do
Perfect for families to kickstart a cruise vacation, Aquafelix is a massive waterpark with wave and traditional pools, navigable man-made rivers, four restaurants, one mile of waterslides and plenty of parking. There’s showers and changing rooms. Just off the Nord Civitavecchia exit on the A12 freeway just outside of Civitavecchia. Designed with disabled access in mind, it’s a great day of fun for all ages. Voted on of Italy’s Top 10 waterparks. Open June - August.
