Civitavecchia (Rome)
Italy

The port of Civitavecchia is the cruise port for Rome. It is often used as a starting or ending point for Mediterranean cruises. If your cruise starts or ends in Rome, plan a few days to discover all the attractions of the city. There is very little to see and do in the small town of Civitavecchia apart from its market, a cathedral and a fort.

In Rome, the capital of Italy, you’ll find plenty of historical sites, museums, restaurants and shops. That why Rome is called an open-air museum. High place of the Roman Empire, several archaeological sites testify to this time. The Vatican City State is also one of Rome’s most visited attractions.
