14 Mar Rome Sea Port of Civitavecchia - Port Transfers with RomeCabs

Buon giorno and welcome to Stefano’s RomeCabs, Rome’s leading company for private Rome Sea Port Civitavecchia Transfers as well as Cruise Port Tours.

In this travel blog we go over the 4 types of Rome Sea Port Civitavecchia Transfers, with tips and advice for each type of transfer for a seamless, efficient, and enjoyable transfer experience.

.

The 4 types of Rome Sea Port Civitavecchia Transfers are:
.
  1. Fiumicino Airport (FCO) to Rome Sea Port of Civitavecchia
  2. Rome Accommodation to Rome Sea Port of Civitavecchia
  3. Rome Sea Port of Civitavecchia  to Rome Accommodation
  4. Rome Sea Port of Civitavecchia  to Fiumicino Airport (FCO)

.
.


.
.

1  FCO / FIUMICINO AIRPORT TO SEA PORT OF CIVITAVECCHIA

.

From Fiumicino Airport you have 2 options going to Civitavecchia: Going directly to your cruise ship for same day departure, or going to a Hotel Accommodation in Civitavecchia prior to your cruise departure.
.

* TRAVEL TIME: From Fiumicino Airport to Civitavecchia travel time is about 1 hour.

.

  • Going to Civitavecchia Cruise Port

Simply book a transfer from FCO Airport to Civitavecchia and provide all your flight arrival details, and drop off cruise ship name.

Follow detailed instructions (and watch the VIDEO) on How to meet Driver at FCO Airport.  

If you haven’t arrived at FCO Airport yet, watching the video will help you visually familiarize yourself with the area where your driver will be waiting for you.  

.

  • Going to Hotel in the City of Civitavecchia

Booking a transfer from FCO Airport to a hotel in Civitavecchia is very easy: just book a regular transfer from FCO to Civitavecchia, and instead of the Drop Off Ship Name, please include your Drop Off Hotel Name and Address in Civitavecchia.

The price is the SAME whether you will be going to the cruise ship or a hotel in the city of Civitavecchia.

.
.

HELPFUL TIPS for Transfers from Fiumicino Airport to Civitavecchia:

..

Plan to book an Early Morning Flight Arrival at FCO Airport in order to allow you plenty of extra time in case you experience flight delays, or delays at the airport (in customs or baggage claims).  

By booking your flight too close to the time your cruise ship departs, you risk missing your ship if you experience any unforeseen delays.

As there is quite a bit of walking from the baggage claims carousels where you collect your luggage to the Main Waiting Hall where you meet your driver, and then additional few minutes’ walking distance to the Designated Parking Area where your vehicle will be parked (as mandated by Airport Security), be sure to use the Luggage Trolleys available near the baggage carousels.

For travelers with mobility issues, be sure to request in advance via your Airline “Complimentary Wheelchair Assistance” so an airport staff member will meet you with a wheelchair when you deplane, and assist you all the way to the parked vehicle.

How to Be in Control of your SHARED CIVITAVECCHIA Transfers

2 Dec

Buon giorno and welcome to RomeCabs Travel Blog!

 

Sharing Transfers to and from Civitavecchia Cruise Port has become an option for many travelers to share costs. In this travel blog we show you How to be in Control of your Shared Civitavecchia Transfers with RomeCabs.

 

Unfortunately many generic shuttle services mean unpredictable pick up times, unpredictable wait times, unpredictable number of persons in the vehicle, unpredictable number of stops around Rome hotels or multiple cruise ships….it’s by and large an unpredictable experience.  

If you are arriving at the Airport and experience delays in customs or baggage claims (which often happens at Rome’s airport!), your shuttle service may not wait for you – after all, they have other passengers sharing the same vehicle you were supposed to be on that don’t want to wait on you.

 

Many travelers would like the option of a cost saving shared transfer to and/or from Civitavecchia, but with the benefits of a private service:  predictable pick up time, no wait times, knowing in advance how many people will be in the vehicle, and not being crammed in with strangers.

 

How to Be in Control of your SHARED CIVITAVECCHIA Transfers

 

Imagine if YOU are in charge of who shares your vehicle.

Imagine if YOU are in charge of the total number of passengers in your vehicle for YOUR personal comfort and space.

Imagine if YOU scheduled the pick up time and knew when to expect your driver.

Imagine if YOU knew your driver’s route in advance.

 

Privately Shared Civitavecchia Transfers with RomeCabs

Privately Shared Civitavecchia Transfers with RomeCabs

 

All of the above are possible on your next Civitavecchia Transfer with RomeCabs, and it’s EASY!!

.
It’s important also to consider which transfers are best shared and which are best private.

 

Private transfers are best for Airport Arrivals.

It is difficult to organize a transfer with others to arrive at the airport at the same time (or close).  Add in situations like missed connections, flight delays, lost luggage, and you will realize a shared transfer is not the best option for arrival transfers.

 

The best Shared Transfers to and from Civitavecchia are:

 

Rome Hotel to Civitavecchia

Civitavecchia to Rome Hotel

Civitavecchia to Airport

 

HOW TO ORGANIZE YOUR SHARED TRANSFER

 

By far the best way to organize your shared transfers is through Cruise Critic where you will find thousands of members, many who may also be cruising on your same ship!

 

Finding fellow cruise mates with similar itineraries is easy on a ship that accommodates thousands of cruisers.  If you’re not already a Cruise Critic member, this is a good time to sign up.

 

Once your travel plans are all set, place an ad on Cruise Critic Roll Call and invite other follow cruisers to share your specific transfers.

 

TIPS ON ORGANIZING YOUR SHARED CIVITAVECCHIA TRANSFERS

 

*  For Transfers between Rome hotels and Civitavecchia:

it’s important that all parties stay at centrally located hotels in Rome. Not only you save time while everyone is collected or dropped off at their respective hotels, but the fee for additional hotels are minimal when everyone’s hotels are centrally located.

 

* For Transfers from Civitavecchia to the Airport:

Make sure that everyone is flying out of the same airport (usually Fiumicino Airport, less likely from Ciampino Regional Airport).  Choose a pick up time at least 3 hours prior to the first flight departure so the party leaving first will arrive at the airport on time, and those flying out later have the option to wait at the airport as needed.

 

There is no extra fee for multiple terminal drop offs. Anyone staying at the Airport Hotel? No problem, that counts the same as going to the airport.

 

**  Do NOT organize shared transfers if some persons need to go to Rome and others to Fiumicino Airport.

Fiumicino Airport is about 40-60 minutes away from Rome, and this extra leg adds the equivalent of an additional airport transfer from the airport to Rome to drop off the rest of the party. It is not cost effective, and the party going to Rome will have to endure a 2 – 2.5 hour drive.

 

Organize shared transfers with everyone going TO, or leaving FROM the same cruise ship.   

Because some ships may dock at different times, or experience delays, you don’t want your group split up – especially if you have to travel to the airport for a flight.

 

Keep in mind total number of passengers and luggage capacity:

The maximum capacity per vehicle is 8 passengers, and total of 7-8 checked in suitcases and 7-8 carry on cases. Please keep in mind the maximum luggage capacity if you wish to form a group of 8 to ensure everyone and their luggage can be safely accommodated inside the vehicle.

 

For optimal space, comfort and travel time, we suggest up to 6 persons staying at no more than 3 hotels.

MAKE YOUR EMAIL EASILY UNDERSTOOD

.

If you are inquiring about multiple services, it helps to keep your email inquiry as concise as possible and stick with outlining the most important details.

If you contact companies abroad, there is the high probability that you are dealing with locals from that country whose English is not their first language.  To be best understood, use simple and straightforward words (refraining from abbreviations or slang) may prevent misunderstandings or requests for clarification.

.

TRANSFER INQUIRIES

.

Your Tour inquiry email should include the following:
.

  • Type of Tour you are interested in. You can mention the tours by name from the company’s website, or mention the sites, towns, regions you are interested in visiting.
  •  Your Pick up  & Drop Off Location (Are you interested in a Day tour starting from Rome or a Shore Excursion from Italy’s cruise ports, Pre-Cruise or Post-Cruise Tour)
  •  Date of Tour(s) to ensure the sites in your preferred tour will be open for visits on your tour day
  • Number of Persons in your party

Any additional information would be helpful: Such as if traveling with young children that might require a child seat or booster seat, if any members in your party have mobility issues that would prevent them from walking or standing too long.

Whether you are arriving in Rome on a land trip or to begin your cruise, likely you will arrive at Fiumicino Airport.  Fiumicino Airport is the largest international airport in the region, and it can be pretty chaotic.

Unlike many airports, the baggage claims area where you collect your luggage at FCO (Fiumicino) airport is security restricted – meaning nobody without a valid airline ticket or special security clearance can access that area.   Therefore,  everyone who is waiting for friends and loved ones to arrive via FCO – including private drivers, must wait in a designated area in the main waiting hall of the arrival terminal.
.

This helpful video shows you where your driver will meet you and also offers helpful information such as using luggage trolleys to easily carry your luggage out from the baggage claims, use the complimentary wheelchair service for those with mobility issues, and what to do in case your flight arrives ahead of schedule or if you experience delays.

 It’s a MUST for any RomeCabs clients to watch prior to arriving at FCO Airport.

Traveling to Italy this summer? Don’t forget to bring THESE with you

3 Jun Summer in Rome with RomeCabs

 

Buon giorno and welcome to Stefano’s RomeCabs Transfer and Tour blog. Our mission is to help you turn our trip to Italy into a vacation of a lifetime with our private transfers, day tours and shore excursions to many of Italy’s top destinations.

Summer is by far the most popular time millions of people worldwide travel to Italy on their summer vacations. While many travelers prefer to travel light (less luggage), especially when summer clothes take up such little space, there are a few things that you should bring with.

.

Traveling to Italy this summer?
Don’t forget to bring THESE with you

.

1 Comfortable Shoes

Summertime often means sandals, flip flops, and fashionable high heels… except in many places in Italy where you will come across cobblestones, uneven pavement, uphill and downhill streets,  and archaeological sites with dirt and stones.

In Italy, ditch the flip flops for the beach and wear comfortable foot supporting walking sandals or shoes that will protect your feet from injury or tripping.

.

2  Sun block, Sunglasses, Sunhat

The Mediterranean sun is strong in the summer, make sure you protect your skin, eyes, and head while sightseeing outdoors.   

You can also also purchase these in Italy as they are widely available if you forget to bring yours or would like to do some shopping in Italy.
.

3 Bring something to cover your shoulders and knees inside churches.

If your wardrobe consists of sleeveless tops and shorts, dresses, or skirts that are above the knee, be sure to bring something with you that you can cover your shoulders and knees in event you wish to visit the amazing churches in Italy.

Many churches impose a modesty dress code that includes covering your shoulders and knees.
.

What not to wear in Italy Churches

Visitors turned away from St Peter’s Basilica

.

If you prefer to have flexibility and be spontaneous with your sightseeing destinations, bring something light with you that you can carry in your small day bag that not only you can use to cover up while visiting your favorite churches, but also to use in the evening when the temperature cools down and a shawl or a sleeved top will take away the chill.

.

4 Bring a Portable Water Bottle

It’s very hot in Italy in the summer, so it’s important to stay hydrated throughout the day.

Buying bottled water can cost 2 Euros or more at kiosk vendors near tourist attractions. At most cafes tourist markets, you find them at about 1 Euros each. At the local supermarket about 25 cents.

Even if you buy a pack of bottled water from a local market and keep them refrigerated in your room, you’d go through your first bottle of water by mid morning. You can either refill the same bottle of water throughout the day, or just bring a portable and refillable water bottle with you that you can reuse throughout your vacation.

Many fountains in large cities like Rome serve cold fresh natural drinking water, one of the best ways to quench your thirst in the Eternal City

You can also buy a large cold bottle of water from the market of cafe and use it to refill smaller bottles if you are traveling with family or friends.
.

.

5 A Back-up Piece of Luggage.

While many travelers travel light, when they arrive in Italy they find so many wonderful things to buy that their luggage suddenly cannot contain all their new purchases.  By bringing a light cloth duffel bag, you have enough space for your belongings and your new treasures.

And don’t forget… starting the the 2nd week of July is the much anticipated Summer Sale that hits all the major clothing, shoes, and accessories shops in Italy.  Your shopping spree just became more exciting and affordable!
