How to reach the boarding point

You can get to the port by car going along the highway A12: your exit is Civitavecchia Nord.

We suggest Civitavecchia Nord also for those who come from the south because you can reach the port in a faster and easier way.

Follow the directions, and you’ll reach Varco Vespucci, the only port entrance for motor vehicles. Then you have to follow the direction for the boarding pier. There are two boarding pier: Pier 24/25 and Bramante Pier. You can find them at the opposite grounds of the port. Both piers have parking areas that are 100 meters far from the pier, but it’s better to get a shuttle bus if you have a lot of baggage.

From Fiumicino Airport

Fiumicino Airport is about 70 km from Civitavecchia. Many companies plan transfers, by taxi or by train from and to the airport.
