Civitavecchia (which means 'ancient town') is a small town and commune of the province of Rome in the central Italian region of Lazio and an important sea port on the Tyrrhenian sea. The city, which is home to just under 60,000 residents, is located around 75 km to the north west of Rome.
How to get to Civitavecchia ferry port
The port of Civitavecchia is also popular as 'Port of Rome'. If you are driving from northern Italy, use the main highway Via Aurelia SS1 and take the exit to Civitavecchia – Orte (Bretella) then just follow the signs for 'Porto'. From southern Italy or Rome you can take the exit for Civitavecchia Sud (in Italian Sud means South) and then just follow the signs.
You can reach the town also by train. Civitavecchia train station is only 500 meters away from the ferry port. There is a Trenitalia shuttle bus service that will take you from the train station directly to the port.
