How to get from Civitavecchia Cruise Port to Rome 0

Train from Civitavecchia Port to Rome 

The train is probably the best way to go from Civitavecchia to Rome. It takes between 40 to 60 minutes, depending on which station in Rome you choose.

The cost is 4,60€, and trains leave approximately every 30 minutes and one hour. In just a short trip, you will find yourself in the Eternal City.

To keep up with your schedule, you could plan the visit to the Vatican museum according to your train's arrival time. Just make sure you get off at San Pietro station (Stazione San Pietro)! If a walk with no specific destination is what you have in mind, then Trastevere station is what would work for you. 

Roma Ostiense is another stop that, in just a short ride on metro B, will take you to parts of Rome worth a visit. Just for an example, the Colosseum stop is your best shot!

The last stop is at Termini station, the hub of the city. From here, you can literally go anywhere you want.
