Civitavecchia is a popular place to stay if you want to see Rome before you board a mediterranean cruise liner. Many visitors fly into Rome FCO Fiumicino airport a couple of days earlier and stay in Civitavecchia, making a day trip or a 2 day visit to Rome. From Civitavecchia you can easily take the train into Rome.

Transfer from Rome airport to Civitavecchia
I suggest that you pay special attention to securing an airport transfer from FCO airport to your hotel in Civitavecchia. The two places are not well connected and the distance from Fiumicino to Civitavecchia is quite large, about 45 miles.
Taxi - Best option and perfect for families:
There are many good taxi companies that will take less than hour to make the trip, but could easily cost 120 euros or more. If you are a large group or a family, I recommend taking a taxi to save time. Here are the contacts of some good reliable taxi service providers from FCO to Civitavecchia:
