Cab Fare from Dock to Rome

Does anyone know what the cost of a cab is from where the cruise ships dock (Citevechio) to Rome? Thanks

The going rate is about € 130.00, give or take ...

The train fare is about € 4.00

Hope this helps ...

If you have a ton of luggage from a cruise, you may want to hire a private car service....We have used these people and they are great--they can email you current prices:

www.limoservicerome.com is their website...

[email protected] is their email
Address your email to ANDREA and he will get back to you within 24hrs..

They are super dependable and have English Speaking drivers with Mercedes Air Conditioned Cars or Vans....

Should run about 150 euros.approx....but well worth it for the luvury of being by yourselves and not packed into a BUS from the cruise port nor a packed train....

We were going to take the train but with all our luggage we decided on a taxi. We negotiated a fare of 100E from dock to hotel in center of Rome. When we arrived the meter read 121E but he only took the 100E we agreed upon.Of course, we gave him a tip as well.

The drive by car will take you about an hour. If you are just going for the day (port trip), it may be fastest and easiest to take a taxi or private car rather than trying to get to the train station and figure out trains, and have to make sure you get the train back on time.

I also agree that a limo service is worth it, you should be able to work out a round-trip package. You probably could also use the car and driver for a tour, although many of the tourist parts of Rome are walkable from each other.
