THE MUNICIPAL THEATRE
The Municipal Theatre was designed by the 'architect Antonio De Rossi was named in honor of the emperor Trajan Trajan Theatre founder of the city. I thought this was quite interesting, in that the original shape of this building was a horsehoe, and the curtain was made up of...
ST. FRANCIS OF ASSISI CATHEDRAL
Where the Cathedral stands today, once stood a smaller Church. The City and population outgrew this Church, and a new one was built, which was the Cathedral I was viewing today. It was a simple Church until 1805, when the Church of San Francesco became the Cathedral of the...
The Fort, you will see from the Cruise Ship, and will be the first major sight when being dropped off by the shuttle bus at the end of the Pier. When standing beside these walls, I realized just how massive they were, and even though I couldn't measure the thickness, I read...

RISTORANTE TRATTORIA SORA MARIE: SEAFOOD FRESH FROM IN FRONT OF THE DOOR
travelgourmet 652 reviews
There are more than a few restaurants in Civitavecchia, some are more upscale than others. A family style restaurant that might be more for locals than tourists is ristorante Trattoria Sora Maria. English translation is Sister Mary. Is this a religious order running the restaurant. No, It was opened in the 1800's and run by the family and not the church. Well, the food is simple but tasty. Mostly seafood and the menu is quiet small. I found that this quaint restaurant did offer the ambiance of Italy and with a little glass of vino rosa, one can forgive the short list on the menu. The staff seems to be trying to please you from the minute you walk in. Seating is also a bit strange as the one section is colorful and more for lunch, while the main room is rustic with wine racks on the walls and a lovely stone arch.
Favorite Dish: Seafood is the house special and the seafood platter is a bit overwhelming but a nice selection of fish. The rissoto with seafood is also a satisfing dish. Sora Maria is open Tuesday thru Sunday for lunch and on Thursday, Friday and Saturday dinner as well.
