Private Transportation between Civitavecchia Port and Rome

Are you arriving on a cruise ship at the port in Civitavecchia and in need of transportation to Rome? Alternatively, do you need transportation in the opposite direction — from Rome to Civitavecchia? We often receive the question, ‘What is the best, cheapest and most convenient transportation option between the cruise terminal at the port of Civitavecchia and Rome?

However, ‘most convenient’ and ‘cheapest’ rarely go hand in hand. While a reliable transfer service that awaits your arrival at the port and takes you directly to your hotel might not be the cheapest option, it certainly offers the highest level of convenience and comfort. Opting for this choice also guarantees peace of mind.

Private transportation, which offers a direct journey to your destination, is especially convenient when you have luggage. You won’t need to worry about navigating unfamiliar areas while carrying around your heavy suitcases.

If you are traveling with family or friends, choosing a private transportation service with personalized pick-up is also a cost-effective alternative.

We highly recommend arranging a direct transfer between the port and your hotel, ensuring a smooth, comfortable, and stress-free journey. Select one of these options to enjoy both your arrival and departure transfers in comfort:
