Independent Tours for Civitachecchia
 
Can anyone give me a reliable source for independent tours to Rome from the port of Civitavecchia. Any comments or experiences welcome

I have seen lots of reviews on cruise critic, usually driverinrome.com, drivinguide.com are recommended.

There is a good mainline train service between Civitavecchia and Rome and when I was there on a previous cruise, many people made the trip themselves. Have a look at a Thos. Cook railway timetable - your travel agent should be able to help.

As an alternative, I can recommend nearby Tarquinia.

If you are familiar with Rome, or speak some Italian, or are comfortable about using those great European trains, go for it. You can really save.

Have a great tiem.

Hi...you can take the train from the port...about a 5 minute walk...to Rome. Once in Rome, you can meet with your tour guide. Private tours are more expensive, but well worth it. If you can get a group of about 6-8 that would be great because it's small and you can share the costs. Go on the web and search for Rome Day Excursions, you'll see plenty of them all varying in costs. The train schedule can be found and tickets can be reserved at www.trenitalia.com Cost is cheap! www.rich@rome-day-tours.com is a good contact...highly educated American guide. Hope this helps!!!

Hi...try www.rich@tour-of-rome.com or Odessey tours. They are both excellent. Good luck!
