  • "Civitavecchia Palermo"

    Nice trip. Missing the possibility of regulate the air conditioner, too cold.

  • "Good but not really good"

    Perfect journey... But the first to arrive is also the last one to landing, we waited an hour, instead the latecomers who don't care to take your advice to be in time can land before us.

  • "GNV's ships ok, Direct Ferries's booking service ko!"

    Nothing to say about the transport service but it was disappointed.. About Direct Ferries instead gives you no service from the call centre. I booked a ticket for 3 persons + car Civitavecchia-Palermo with return (14/08-23/08). After we booked we realized that the return was on the 28/08. After so many times trying to contact the Customer Care by phone(payment call) by email, they let me change the date but they made me pay again. At the end, fortunately, I've got the refund. Next time for sure no more Direct Ferries. And to be honest I do not recommend it.

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.


Palermo Guide

The city of Palermo is located on the Italian island of Sicily and lies on the island's north west coast and has a large and strategically important natural port, next to the Monte Pellegrino. The city is typically Mediterranean and can trace its history back to the 8th century and is today known for its Norman buildings, fabulous palaces and the hustle and bustle of its markets. Palermo's historic centre is the Quattro Canti district, which means 'Four Corners' and is where a number of the city's most spectacular attractions can be found. These include the Royal Palace and the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta. The cathedral's sheer size and lovely architecture really needs to be seen to be fully appreciated. Also popular in the city is the medieval Basilica of San Francesco d'Assisi and the 12th century Castello della Zisa. For visitors who enjoy the performing arts there is also the Teatro Massimo which is a recently refurbished theatre that puts on regular performances.

Ferries from the city's port depart to Genoa, Civitavecchia, Naples and Tunisia.
