Civitavecchia Cagliari Ferry reviews

  • "Smoothe Sailing!"

    We took the ferry round trip after staying in Sardinia a few weeks. Both rides were surprisingly comfortable. We enjoyed a sound sleep on the couches provided. The ferries are clean and the staff very friend,y and accommodating. Would highly recommend this affordable means of transport.

  • "Comfortable travelling"

    We recently travelled overnight with Tirrenia Ferries from Civitavecchia to Cagliari as foot passengers. The Ferry was clean and comfortable, we booked a cabin and our ticket included evening buffet meal and breakfast (food basic but adequate) The staff on board were extremely helpful and although they did not speak much English we managed perfectly well. We would certainly recommend the ferry crossing, it is a much cheaper way of travelling between mainland Italy and Sardinia and fun! From Rome it was a 30 minute train journey and 10 minutes on a bus, pick up right outside the train station, to the port, couldn't have been easier.

    I have used the Tirrenia ferries to Sardinia a six times in the last 6 months and I would strongly recommend them. The ships are very comfortable and the service is efficient. Catering options are varied.

Civitavecchia Guide

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.
