Civitaveccia is not attractive as a tourist destination. The attraction in this port is the access to Rome. Due to the long distance to the town center and the tight schedule that follows out of this, we recommend booking an organized tour either departing direct from Civitaveccia or in Rome as the travel via train is an easy one.
