Rome, the city of seven hills
How to get there?
The boat docked at Civitavecchia, a port located more than 70 km from the center of Rome. It is therefore essential to prepare in advance your visit to Rome by considering the duration of the call, the travel time between Civitavecchia and Rome and the budget you have available.
Enjoy a comfortable, convenient, and affordable shared shuttle services from Civitavecchia port to Rome transfer .
To reach Rome you can:
Take the train: The most economical
The Civitavecchia train station is about a 15-minute walk from the port bus terminal, but there is a shuttle bus between the port and the train station for € 2 one way per person. Take the regional train from Civitavecchia to Rome Termini. Journey time: between 45 minutes and 1:30 depending on the stations served.
Take a taxi: the most comfortable
Directly on the dock, you will find taxis. Attention, comfort is paid! Count around € 150 each way between the port of Civitavecchia and the center of Rome (up to 4 people). Journey time: 1h30 minimum (depending on traffic conditions).
Take a company tour: The most complete
But that will require a certain budget. The first of the excursions will cost you at least 45 € per adult and 32 € per child, you will not have a guide and will spend an infinite time in the bus. Like the taxi, count at least 1h30 to get to Rome.
Now that you have an idea of how to reach Rome, we will look at what to see.
To visit Rome, walking is ideal. But for those who are afraid of getting tired too quickly, the metro remains a practical and economical solution.
Piazza di Spagna
The Spanish Steps are at the heart of Rome’s luxury shopping district. (Valentino, Bulgari, Louis Vuitton …) This is a very nice area to walk around if you are careful not to ruin your holiday budget before the end of the day!
Located a stone’s throw from Piazza di Spagna, Villa Borghese is a municipal park of about 80 hectares with many Roman museums and the famous Villa Medici (the French Academy in Rome). The park houses among others the Temple of Esculapius and the Borghese Gallery.
After Villa Borghese, head west, on foot (the ballad is very nice) to the Cavour Bridge. Cross the Tiber, continue west and discover the Vatican City. No border crossing to cross, rest assured. You get very easily and very quickly to the Place San Pietro (Place St Pierre), it is normal with 0.44km² it is the smallest state in the world!
Rome is a wonderful city, but like all capitals the traffic is very dense. That’s why I prefer walking and public transport. In addition to the metro that serves the main areas of the city very well, you can also choose the tram or the bus. In any case, take advantage of this stopover to visit one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
