Our ship is spending 2 nights in Civitavecchia. Would it be better for us to get a hotel in Rome for one night rather than going back and forth each day on the on the train. My wife wants to stay in the ships cabin each night, but I think a hotel in Rome for one night would give us a lot more time for sight-seeing. When you consider the cost and time of the train each day it probably would not be that much more money? Thank you for your replies.
Not only are hotels expensive in Rome, but restaurants also are not exactly cheap -- especially for dinner. You'll pay for dinner on the ship whether you are there to eat it or not. You probably will come out ahead with the extra round trip ticket.
