What are the procedures for Covid-19 at the Port of Civitavecchia?

Coronavirus, drive-in activated in the port of Civitavecchia to get swab tests

All international transport has been affected by the Coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19), and obviously the arrivals and departures of cruise ships and ferries at the port of Civitavecchia have also been affected.

On this page we try to clarify the procedures implemented at the Port of Civitavecchia, both for ferry connections with Sardinia, Sicily, Spain and Tunisia and for the main cruise companies, which are gradually starting their navigation again.

We will update this page as we get news.

Drive-In Covid Test Centre at Civitavecchia Port of Rome

At the Largo della Pace Drive-In, health workers carry out swab tests both to those sent by the Italian Health Service, and to tourists who request voluntarily.

Access times are:

  • Morning: from 08.00 to 13.30 (Mon – Sat)
  • Afternoon: from 17.00 to 21.00 (every day, Sunday included)

To request the molecular test on a voluntary basis, you need the doctor’s prescription, your fiscal code and you must reserve the PCR Test.

However, if you do not have a doctor’s prescription, you can go directly to the Drive-In without a reservation at the times indicated above, and a prescription will be issued on the spot by the doctor present.
