Ostia Antica

Imagine an entire Roman city, abandoned since the end of antiquity and unearthed after centuries of oblivion. Certainly closer to the Civitavecchia seaport than Pompeii. Built with the city of Rome as reference. Defending it from the Tyrrhenian Sea coast. Being a port city located at the mouth of the Tiber river. This is Ostia Antica. With its history and fate intimately connected to Rome. Visiting the excavations of Ostia Antica is like a walk through time. One of the many Civitavecchia tours available as a Half Day Tour or a Full Day Tour.


Pompeii archaeological site

The ancient Roman city of Pompeii or Pompei was buried under the ashes of the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD. It is now a popular tourist attraction reachable from our Tours from Civitavecchia to Pompei. Now an open air museum part of the UNESCO Heritage patrimony. The Pompeii archaeological complex is located south of Rome. Not far from Naples, part of the Campania region. From the Civitavecchia Cruise port it is a Full Day Tour ending in Naples, Rome, or back to the Civitavecchia seaport.


Cathedral Duomo Orvieto Italy

Why visit Orvieto? A small town near the town of Terni, in southwestern Umbria region. Located on a large volcanic flat tuff formation. Orvieto is one of the most striking cities in Italy to visit. The harsh limestone cliffs on which it stands, rise to the sky almost vertically, and complement the fortified tuff walls. Easily reachable with our Tours from Civitavecchia to Orvieto. An exceptional sightseeing location for all tourists. Aside from the beauty of the Italian landscape. There are multiple sites really worth seeing. Including the impressive Duomo Cathedral and the the St. Patricks Well Pozzo di San Patrizio. Both very impressive sites worth visiting in person.

Tarquinia & Cerveteri

Church Santa Maria in Castello. Tarquinia. Italy.

Tarquinia with its scenic medieval towers and painted Etruscan tombs is a must visit location in the Tuscia Lazio region. Included in the UNESCO World Heritage List, it is an open door into the Etruscan culture with Museums and ancient remains. Not far from the Mediterranean coast and the Civitavecchia seaport. An excellent tour near the Civitavecchia. Especially if paired with a Visit of the town of Cerveteri. Where it is possible to visit the necropolis located about two kilometers from the Cerveteri ancient town city center whch is certainly worth a visit.
