You can quickly get from Rome to Civitavecchia since there is an excellent train service between the Eternal City and Rome’s Cruise Port. The core service functions twice per hour, taking around 70 to 80 minutes to travel the whole route. However, do not expect punctuality from Rome’s public transportation and regional trains. The most convenient way is to get by train from Roma Termini station, but there are also other direct trains from popular stations such as Roma Trastevere and Fiumicino Airport.
