When your cruise ship arrives in Civitavecchia, you'll need to get into Rome or to one of Rome's airports. One way to get between the port of Civitavecchia, where the cruise ships dock, and Rome or one the airports is by using private car transportation through a shuttle or transfer service. This is probably the easiest and most convenient option. These shuttles and transfer services can also be booked for transfers between the airport and the city of Rome or for other private transfers.
Book your private Civitavecchia and Rome Airport transfer service online through Viator and pay in US dollars or check the site for a quote.
The following companies will transport you to or from Civitavecchia, Rome, or the airports of Fiumicino or Ciampino in a private car or van with driver or in a shared van and can be booked in advance. I have not had experience with any of these companies personally so cannot offer advice about them. Transfer services should always be booked in advance and give you a fixed fare.
