Civitavecchia Port to FCO, recommended options?

Recommended Posts

What is the best or recommended transportation from Civitavecchia Port to FCO airport?  Planning to get off ship as early as we can, plan to take advantage of walk off ship with baggage.  Appreciate all information, advice and recommendations?  Thank you.

The best is a private helicopter. The second best is a limo, sipping prosecco. At least, that is "best" to us. What is "best" to you?

 

There are dozens of threads discussing transport port to airport. What is your flight time? That will determine the urgency of your needs.

 

We would use Rome in Limo...huge thread just down the board. Wonderful company.

I agree with CruiserBruce.  

 

I always recommend a private vehicle.  There are various companies including Rome in Limo and Rome Cabs.  They both provide private vehicles.  I would check them both out and don't wait to book as there is a finite supply of vehicles they offer.

Echo that - private car.  You can take the train but dragging heavy cruise cases - it wouldn't be my idea of a calm end to a cruise.

There is an option between a private car (expensive) and the train (lots of hassle for this route; more difficult than going into Rome) -- shared shuttles. A couple have already been recommended and others can be found by reading these boards. Shared shuttles range from 70-90 euro/couple as opposed to a private car, which can run 130-150 euro.

Is it relatively easy to find your private car service (and do you recommend carry-off for luggage)?  I'm wondering if there's a lot of chaos with drivers standing around with signs, taxis or buses lined up, etc.????

It's rare to read a report from anyone about having difficulty finding their driver. It just sorts itself out, much as it does at airports. Be sure you understand where to meet your driver, and when, and you should not have any problem.

 

Whether or not to do carry-off depends a lot on your time frame. If you have plenty of time to get to the airport, and handling all your luggage poses a difficulty, there's no reason to do it. Onboard ship you can request an early time slot for your tags and they should accommodate you. 

 

Alternatively, if you only have a limited window of time to get to the airport in order to make your flight, then doing walk-off with your luggage is a good idea as it eliminates another possible time snafu.

 

How long do you have between your ship arrival and your flight? What time are you going to request a pick-up for?

Our flight is around 12:30 or so.  We made reservations with the car service mentioned on RCL's site (and prepaid) for all of our transportation (pick up at airport to Rome hotel, then Rome hotel to port a few days later... and finally, from the port back to airport).   They requested our arrival and departure flight info, but we haven't verified the pickup time at the port with them yet for our 10/3 cruise.

You should have plenty of time. I'd suggest 8:30 am pick up for a 12:30 flight, given the hour drive. The transport services know the timings well.
