Civitavecchia rental car

Recommended Posts

Before our cruise I searched for info on rental cars in Civi, but all I found was outdated. Wanted to provide updated information based on the current port configuration:


Closest rental cars are EuropeCar and Budget. Half block walk from where the shuttle bus drops you off. Off the ship, it took a little while to find the shuttle bus as it was a bigger bus at the end of the line (put your luggage below and get on the bus). Paper in the window says it was free to the port entrance. Bus only goes directly to the port entrance with no additional stops.


Online maps of the port show things that really don't seem to exist, and the naming of places inside the port are confusing. Bottom line is that there is a roundabout just outside the cruise port, with a small parking lot right next to it. Buses go from the ship to this parking lot direct and let you off. Port-a-potties there, and just outside some booths selling shore excursions. Very short walk with luggage to EuropeCar. They had the best prices with no drop charges to the FCO airport later that day.


On Google maps, if you look at the street view there is a sign with a phone number to call Avis for a pickup. Didn't see if that was still there when we got off the ship. On the ship they said there were very few taxis available in Civi, but we were approached at least 5 times in the short walk to the rental car asking if we wanted a taxi or shared transfer to the airport.
