Stops on the way to Civitavecchia from Rome


Recommended Posts

Are there any recommended stops on the way from Rome from Civitavecchia? We’ll be in Rome for four days prior to our cruise and wanted to do something outside of Rome the day we transfer. I know that Rome cabs offers a stop at Bracciano Castle and lunch in Ceri.  We will have private transport so we can be flexible. What would be some other options?

There is Ostia Antica, the ruins of the old Roman port.


If the Estruscans are of more interest you could stop at Tarquinia on the way.


Further out but also interesting is Orvieto.


Or you could stop at Tivoli on the way, to see either the gardens at Villa d'Este or the ruins of Hadrian's compound Villa Adriana.

We just did the Rome cabs tour of  Cerveteri and Bracciano castle. Both well worth it and Ceri is a cute little borgo  with a nice restaurant.  If you have your own transportation we really enjoyed  Viterbo and the nearby Villa Lante and the awesome palazzo Farnese.   But that would actually need more time.
