What to see
Civitavecchia, a city on the Roman coast, 70 km from Rome, is the home of one of the most important ports in Italy. The main things to see are the cathedral of Saint Francis, the National Museum, the Old Port, and the Michelangelo Fort, built to defend the coast from corsair raids. The Taurine Baths archaeological site, a very well-preserved ancient bath complex in Civitavecchia, is also worth a visit. If you would like to relax for a few hours, head to the spa waters at the Ficoncella Thermal Baths.
Where to stay
To truly enjoy your stay in Civitavecchia, we recommend opting for one of the hotels along the coast so you can easily reach the primary points of interest in the city.
What to eat
Civitavecchia’s culinary tradition has strong ties to the area’s fishing activity. Therefore, in order to taste the city’s traditional specialities, head to one of the restaurants on the seafront, where you can enjoy delicious seafood dishes. Also, one of Civitavecchia’s traditional recipes is well-known throughout Italy. This is the “Civitavecchia Easter Pizza”, a dessert made with bread dough and ricotta, spiced with cinnamon and anise, that is prepared during the Easter period.
