When your cruise ship arrives in Civitavecchia, you'll need to get into Rome if you want to tour the city or stay a few days, or to one of Rome's airports if your trip to Italy has come to an end. This is probably the easiest and most convenient option to get from the port of Civitavecchia, where the cruise ships dock, to Rome or one its airports is by using private car transportation through a shuttle or transfer service. These shuttles and transfer services can also be booked for transfers between the airport and the city of Rome or for other private transfers.
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. They can and should be booked in advance and they should provide you with a fixed fare.

If you have just a day in Rome and want a tour that's more in-depth than the typical shore excursion, consider a private tour with pick-up and drop-off at Civitavecchia. These excursions are admittedly costly, but are the best way to fit a lot of sightseeing into one day. The Roman Guy and Through Eternity Tours are among those we can recommend.
