Civitavecchia Port At Night

How to book a ferry from/to Civitavecchia port

For businesses transporting goods via freight ferry between Italy and Spain, Sardinia or Tunisia, the port of Civitavecchia is a popular choice.

The Italian port, conveniently located just an 80km drive from Italy’s capital city, Rome, provides a wealth of services that keep businesses returning time and time again.

Here’s what you need to know about booking a ferry to/from Civitavecchia.

About the port

Also known as the seaport of Rome, the port of Civitavecchia was originally built by Emperor Trajan (considered one of the five great emperors of Rome) at the beginning of the 2nd century.

With a total of 8 cruise terminals, Civitavecchia provides secure facilities for both cargo and passengers, with additional facilities for transporters of oil products. The port’s major imports include timber, coal and crude oil, while steel is an important export.

Almost 9 million tonnes of cargo pass through the port annually, but it isn’t just the port’s size or capacity that makes it a vital point of trade. At the heart of the port of Civitavecchia’s cultural impact is its dedication to supporting maritime innovations.

In fact, just last month, the port of Civitavecchia welcomed the largest ship ever built in Europe, the MSC World Europa cruise ship for her maiden voyage. Powered by Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), the MSC World Europa is the world’s first vessel to use fuel cell technology, which will “drastically reduce the ship's overall environmental impact, almost completely eliminating emissions of atmospheric pollutants” according to the port of Civitavecchia’s official statement.
