Tourism in Civitavecchia

Most tourists arrive in Civitavecchia for departing to various other locations by cruises or ferries. On its own, the port is not really a tourist destination, but rather a middle point or a junction that connects visitors to various parts of Italy and even to other countries. However, there are things to see for those planning to spend a day or two in town.

Forte Michelangelo
The large fort of Michelangelo is the most visited place in Civitavecchia. The fort was first commissioned by Pope Julius II in order to defend Rome's port. The construction of the fort was completed under the supervision of Antonio da Sangallo, Paul III, and Giuliano Leno. The maschio tower is the most noteworthy feature of the fort, the upper part having been designed by Michelangelo himself. There are four towers in the complex and the main tower of the fort is in an octagonal shape. The fort was built over the remains of a Roman monument, which may have been the barracks for Roman mariners, possibly for the Imperial fleet.

The Castle
The Castle or the Rocca of Civitavecchia has existed in the town for centuries and was rebuilt by Pope Sixtus V in the 15th century. In the next century another beautiful palace, Palazzo Apostolico, was added to the complex by Pius IV. The beautiful castle is definitely worth a visit for its noted architecture.

Roman Baths
The Roman Baths are located a little ways from the main town and are known as Terme Taurine. These baths have been in use since the Roman times and are still very popular among the locals. Along the various hot water pools are fig plants, the basis for the modern name of the baths.

The Cathedral
The Cathedral of Civitavecchia is dedicated to San Francesco d'Assisi. It was built on the location of an ancient Franciscan church in 1610. The architecture of the Cathedral today is a mix of neoclassical and baroque and the present day edifice dates back to the 18th century. The interior of the cathedral has been elegantly decorated and is not to be missed.

The Docks
An interesting place to visit is the dock of Civitavecchia. The dock of the town is frequented by large cruise liners that travel across the Mediterranean Sea to various destinations. Ships and cruises depart from this dock to various locations in Europe and North Africa. From here visitors can take a day excursion ferry for visiting the nearby islands and the city of Rome.
