"Pleasant trip, comfortable cabin"
I had a lovely trip with my motorcycle on the Grimaldi Lines ship to Barcelona from Civitavecchia. The cabin was comfortable, nice warm shower, cosy bed, and thank goodness I could turn off the air conditioning when it got too cold! The staff were friendly in the bars and cafe areas and there was generally a great atmosphere on board. Thank you Grimaldi Lines!

"I'd take this ferry again"
The trip was more expensive than we had expected. The onboard food was acceptable. Beer was expensive. The room and bathroom were clean and adequate. Noise wasn't an issue. The staff was helpful. Be sure to bring good books or games.

Located in the Lazio region of central Italy, the town of Civitavecchia can be found in the province of Rome and has a seaport on the coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea and is around 80 km to the north west of Rome. Located in an 18th century building that once belonged to Clemente XIII, visitors will find the Archaeological Museum of Civitavecchia. The building was originally constructed to house the headquarters of the papal garrison. In the museum visitors will see archaeological findings from the town of Centumcellae (the ancient name for Civitavecchia) and from the town's immediate surroundings. In the town's main square visitors will also find another interesting attraction. The Cathedral dedicated to San Francis of Assisi was built over a church that already existed and which the Franciscan fathers had built upon concession by Pope Paul V in 1610.
The town's harbour, formed by two piers and a breakwater, upon which stands a lighthouse, accommodates ferries to destinations including Sicily, Sardinia and Tunisia.
The Spanish city of Barcelona lies on the Mediterranean Sea coast, between the mouths of the River Llobregat and River Besos and is also bordered to the west by the Serra Collserola mountain range. The city is the capital of the autonomous region of Catalonia and is the second largest city in Spain, after Madrid. The city's origins date back to when it was founded as a Roman city and then in the Middle Ages it became the capital of the County of Barcelona. Today, the city is a very popular tourist destination and cultural centre and is particularly well known for the architectural works of Antoni Gaudi and Lluis Domenech i Montaner, which have been declared UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
There are many things to do and see in Barcelona including the National Museum of Art of Catalonia which contains a collection of Romanesque art while the Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art has a collection on post 1945 Catalan and Spanish art. Also in the city the Fundació Joan Miró, Picasso Museum and Fundació Antoni Tàpies hold important collections of these world famous artists, as well as Can Framis Museum, which focuses on post 1960 Catalan Art owned by Fundació Vila Casas.
From the city's port, whose piers are located close to the city centre, ferries depart to Mallorca, Ibiza and Morocco (Tangier Med).
