Main sites in Civitavecchia

by frankfar

Hi to everyone!! We'll come to Civitavecchia next May on a cruiseliner for a day, i've been already to Rome so we'd like to visit the town by walk in Civitavecchia. Can anyone suggest the main sites not to be missed? Thanks in advance!!

While you wait for specific replies take a browse around VT's own Travel Guide for Civitavecchia.
I'm sure you will get a good idea of things to see and do there.

Have a good cruise!

I don't think you would be happy staying in Civitavecchia as there is not that much to see or do. It is a port town and it does have a street of shops and restaurants but unless the cruise ate up all your money head out of the port by train, go into Rome, transfer to another train that will take you to Ostia Antica near the airport at Fiumicino. The trains that go to Roma from Civitavecchia and the connecting train to and back from Ostia Antica will take up a lot of time, but if you have an early arrival to port and a late sailing, then a midday tour of Ostia Antica is a good area to tour. This is as good, in my opinion, as Pompeii for the ruins. One of VT's members, Icunme, Carol, has excellent tips for Ostia Antica.

Travel Tips for Civitavecchia

Civitavecchia Lighthouse

by grandmaR

When we came back from our Rome tour, we saw that the ship was docked next to the replica/faux lighthouse. Date after World War II. Approx. 20 m (66 ft) round stone tower.

In 108 AD, the Roman Emperor Trajan built two lighthouses at Centumcellae, now Civitavecchia. In 1616, Pope Pius V built a new lighthouse on the foundation of one of the Roam towers, and in 1860 Pope Leo IX had a second-order lantern installed on the tower.

The lighthouse was largely destroyed during World War II, and after the war a new tower was built as a historic landmark. However, the replica is much more slender and does not have the stepped form of the historic lighthouse. Located on the old waterfront of Civitavecchia, about 50 km (30 mi) northwest of Rome. Site open, tower closed.
