Experience the best of the Mediterranean on cruises departing from Civitavecchia, Italy. Located northwest of Rome, the culture radiating from this classical European country comes alive on these tours as you visit museums and ancient Roman ruins, like the Colosseum, Pantheon, and the Forum, among others. Departing from Rome, your cruise might head to the coastal towns of Ponza, Amalfi, Positano, Sicily, and Capri, just to name a few. Or perhaps you'll visit the haunting town of Sorrento, also known as Pompeii. Wine tasting, biking, walking tours, and leisurely strolls down cobblestone streets are highlights for many of these cruises. Many of the tours also visit other top destinations on Europe's Mediterranean coast, including stops in Nice, France and even Barcelona, Spain.

Civitavecchia Travel Guide

Best Time to Visit Civitavecchia and Rome

Between April and June is the best time to visit the Southern half of Italy. The temperatures are comfortable, there's little-to-no rain, and the crowds are small as this is a shoulder season. Additionally, you may be able to find reduced hotel and flight rates during these months.

Between July and September is the high season for this region. It's hot, crowded, and prices are at their height. This is when most people go and it's a fine time to visit Italy, but it probably won't be a super relaxing trip between the high crowds and hot weather.

Between October and March is an okay time to visit Italy. This is the off season and most attractions are on shorter winter hours or may be closed for renovations. That being said, you can get a solid hotel deal during these months, it's not crowded, and the weather only really gets cold (it may snow but it's not likely) between December and February.

Is Civitavecchia the same as Rome?
  • Although the small port town of Civitavecchia is not the same as Rome, it is just under 40 miles from the Italian capital city.
  • The drive from Rome to Civitavecchia is less than an hour.
  • Civitavecchia is the departure point for all of the cruises of the Italian Mediterranean
  • While the population of Rome is nearing three million, the population of Civitavecchia hovers just around 50,000.
  • Civitavecchia is a town steeped in its own history, featuring the original 2nd century Roman Dock and the nearby 16th century Michelangelo Fort; you can also visit the ruins of the Roman baths at Terme Taurine just northeast of this small town.
