Rome (Civitavecchia)

Rome is the capital city of Italy and is the country’s largest and most populated city. The metropolitan area of Rome has about 4 million people, and the entire city accommodates more than 2.8 million residents. You’ll find Rome on the Tiber River in the Lazio region of central Italy. Rome has several attributes such as Caput Mundi (Capital of the world), l’Urbe (The City), la Città Eterna (The Eternal City) and Limen Apostolorum (Threshold of the Apostles), among others. Rome ranks third on the list of Europe’s most-visited tourist hotspots, owing to the fact that this ancient city was once a major centre of early civilisation.  

The ancient centre of Rome is registered by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. Rome’s historic city boasts of museums and galleries, including the Museum of Castel Sant’Angelo, Villa Giulia National Etruscan Museum, the National Gallery of Modern Art, the National Museum of Rome, the Capitoline Museums, the Museum of Roman Civilization and the Borghese Gallery. With all of these galleries, you’ll never want for things to do in Rome.

Tourists who visit Rome from aboard cruise liners may find their ships docking at Autorita Portuale di Civitavecchia, Molo Vespucci, in nearby Civitavecchia. There are always cabs and buses available to transport you into the ancient town itself. You could begin your sightseeing in Civitavecchia by visiting the ruins of Ostia Antica, Tarquinia and the Etruscan Tombs. Being a commercial port, nothing may be worth seeing or doing at Civitavecchia except for a mini market, internet services and a train station, which can convey you straight to Rome. Irrespective of your choice of Roman site, be sure to appreciate architectural and spiritual sites such as the Forum, the Pantheon, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica.
