Civitavecchia port to rail

Jump to last reply

Is their anyone who can clarify this for me? The information I am getting online from various websites is confusing, to say the least!

We are cruising in September with Celebrity, from Venice. Our cruise ends in Rome (Civitavecchia), and we are staying on there independently for several days after the cruise. Celebrity can get us into Rome via a shore excursion for $209 each (there are two of us), or via a direct bus transfer for $116 each - steep for a 1 hour drive. I have sussed out train travel from Civitavecchia rail station to Rome Termini (or Ostiense or others), But I'm having difficulty getting reliable information about how to get from the cruise ship to Civitavecchia rail station.

Apparently it's walkable (15 mins) if your cruise ship is moored at a Pier near the south entrance to the port, but less so (especially as we'll have our luggage) if our ship is at one of the higher-numbered piers further north. How much less so, I've been unable to determine. At this stage, Celebrity cannot tell us what pier they will be moored at.

Their are shuttles too, but this is where the confusion really sets in. One website says that there are two kinds of shuttle, a scheduled port one and (for some cruises only) a cruise-line specific one, and that these run "between the cruise ships and the south or downtown entrance to the port". Another website, however, says the shuttles run from the "south entrance of the port to Forte Michelangelo which is about four blocks short of Civitavecchia rail station".

These seem to be contradictory messages. Or are they talking about two different shuttle services, one from the ship to the port entrance and one from the port entrance to Forte Michelangelo? It's odd, though, that neither website mentions that possibility, and a video I saw on You-Tube (showing the walk from the south port entrance to the rail station) shows Forte Michelangelo as being right by the port entrance - which makes me question the second shuttle run described above.

Can anyone throw some light on this and clear up the mystery please? Thanks...
