Civitavecchia is not merely a port; it's a town steeped in centuries of maritime tradition and historical intrigue. Established by Emperor Trajan in the 2nd century, Civitavecchia has long served as a crucial naval base and trade port for the Roman Empire and later for the Papal States. Its ancient fortifications and thermal baths offer a glimpse into its storied past, while its promenade, restaurants, and markets provide a taste of contemporary coastal Italian life. Though many travelers pass through on their way to Rome, those who linger are rewarded with a less-touristed, authentic Italian experience.
Civitavecchia, with its strategic location and rich history, acts as a maritime prologue to the treasures of Rome. It's a place where travelers can relish the maritime vibes of Italy while standing on layers of history that paved the way for the great Roman civilization.
