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.


Golfo Aranci Guide

Golfo Aranci is the name of gulf that is located on the north eastern coast of the island of Sardinia, Italy. Thanks to the port here, the town is blessed with excellent connections by ferry to the rest of Italy and is only a few kilometers from Porto Rotondo and 15 km from Olbia. There are disagreements as to the exact meaning of Golfo Aranci's name. One meaning has it that the name stems from a shipwreck that was full of oranges and the other, and to some the most convincing explanation, is linked to the Sardinian term 'granci', which are the crabs that are found in the area.

Visitors to Golfo Aranci also tend to visit the marine reserve that is on the nearby island of Tavolara. Also popular with visitors are the wide range of water sports that are on offer which enables visitors to experience first hand the lovely, warm clear waters that are found off the town's shores. Inland, there is the Cala Moresca pine forest which is easily reached on foot or by bicycle.

There are daily ferries operating from the town's port to Civitavecchia, Livorno and Fiumincino.
