10 Things You Didn’t Think of when booking Civitavecchia transfers

5 Jan

Buon giorno and welcome to Stefano’s RomeCabs, Rome’s leading company for private Civitavecchia Transfers, Shore Excursions from Civitavecchia, and other Italy top cruise ports.

We have provided transfers from Rome’s cruise port in Civitavecchia for more than 18 years and counting, serving tens of thousands of cruisers arriving in Italy either pre-cruise, post-cruise, or just for the day.

We compiled a list of 10 things you didn’t think of when booking Civitavecchia transfers based on our extensive experience providing port transfers, and from questions we’ve received from our cruising clients over the years. 

Don’t worry,  if you book your Civitavecchia Transfer with RomeCabs and your reservation requires additional attention our expert staff will inform you in advance so your Civitavecchia Transfers will be perfect.  However, knowing these important things in advance simplifies your booking process, saves you time,  and is also valuable when booking port transfers in other Italian cities.

10 Things You Didn’t Think of when booking Civitavecchia transfers


Italy Private Tours and Transfers_RomeCabs Rome Cabs
RomeCabs offers private Civitavecchia Transfers in Deluxe modern vehicles

Most vehicles for Rome Civitavecchia Port Transfers range from sedans, SUVs, and most common minivans of up to 8 passengers. Vehicles are generally provided based on the number of persons in your party and your total amount of luggage.

If you are traveling with family members or a group larger than 8 people, you will require 2 vehicles (or more vehicles depending on your group size).  

Why can we only book a minivan of up to 8 passengers for Civitavecchia Transfers?

Private Driver vehicles are a maximum of 8 passengers because in Italy this is the largest size vehicle that can access the Civitavecchia Cruise Port and Rome’s city center.  Vehicles larger than 8 passengers fall under the “bus” category and are restricted from accessing the cruise port and city centers. 

Therefore, to be able to provide our clients with Door-to-Door Service and Pick Up / Drop Off at the pier next to your cruise ship, all our vehicles for transfers and tours are a maximum of 8 passengers.


Private Civitavecchia Transfers in deluxe vehicles
Traveling with a lot of luggage?

Sedans are usually priced for 1-3 passengers and can accommodate approximately up to 2 standard check-in suitcases and up to 2-3 small carry-on in total.  If you are a party of 1-3 persons, consider in advance if your luggage would fit in a standard sedan trunk space.

If you are a party of 1 to 3 passengers with extra luggage that would not fit in a sedan trunk space,  make sure you inform the company so you will be upgraded to a minivan (and priced accordingly) so you and your luggage can be safely and comfortably accommodated. 

You may also simply book for 4 passengers to be automatically provided a minivan with ample space for your luggage and lots of legroom for you!

A large minivan for 7-8 passengers can accommodate up to 7 standard check-in suitcases and up to 7 small carryons in total

If you are a group of up to 8 persons with a lot of luggage that exceeds the maximum luggage capacity,  you may require 2 vehicles to accommodate all passengers and their luggage safely. 

If you are not sure your extra luggage will fit in 1 vehicle or may require a 2nd vehicle, please contact your transfer provider with the details of your luggage count and the number of passengers for more helpful assistance.

Meeting Point at Civitavecchia for Port Transfers to Rome

When you book a transfer from Civitavecchia to Rome or from Civitavecchia to Rome Airport (Fiumicino Airport), being able to easily meet your driver at the port is very important.

When you book our private Civitavecchia port transfers, your personal driver will meet you right on the pier next to your ship. You do NOT have to take any bus shuttles to exit the cruise port.

All drivers are required to stand in a designated area for Drivers (look for or ask for the Limo Driver area) and wait for their clients to disembark.

Be sure to retain the Contact Phone Number of your transfer company in case of an emergency such as disembarking early, delays in disembarkation, or if you can’t spot your driver.  Our phone number is always included in your Reservation Confirmation Email, be sure to keep it handy in case you require assistance.

  • From CIVITAVECCHIA TO ROME AIRPORT (FIUMICINO AIRPORT) is approximately 60 minutes (1 hour) pending local traffic and road conditions

Rome Civitavecchia Transfers
Door to Door Service with Stefano’s RomeCabs

If you will be staying in Rome pre-cruise or Post Cruise and require a Port Transfer between your Rome Hotel and Civitavecchia Port, please keep in mind when booking your hotel, B&B, or Apartment that many small streets and alleys in the historic center of Rome may be restricted to traffic or vehicle size, and your driver may not be able to stop in front of your accommodation.  

In case your accommodation is located on a street or square with traffic restrictions, for hotel pickups (Rome to Civitavecchia Port Transfer) your driver will stop and park the vehicle as close as lawfully possible, and meet you at the front door of your accommodation address (or hotel lobby) on foot and accompany you with your luggage back to your parked vehicle.  

Rome tours Civitavecchia Transfers
Rome city transfers to Civitavecchia

For hotel arrivals (Civitavecchia to Rome transfer), your driver will park as close to your accommodation as lawfully possible, and accompany you and your luggage on foot to the front door of your accommodation address.

Rome has many wonderful hotels and apartments on historical streets and squares and charming alleys, however, they were built centuries ago before vehicles were invented. There are also many important embassies throughout the historic center with very strict security restrictions that do not permit vehicles to park or be left unattended in their vicinity. To keep Rome safe, traffic laws are many and drivers must obey them.

If you require door-to-door service,  when selecting your accommodation, please check with your hotel or apartment host before booking to ensure that:

  • The Rome Hotel or Apartment address is located on a street or square without traffic restrictions
  • The Rome Hotel or appartment is on a street wide enough to accommodate large minivans
  • Vehicles can stop to load/unload passengers in front of the Hotel / Accommodation
  • Ensure your Hotel has porters or luggage assistants (or apartment renting hosts can help guests with luggage) in case you require additional luggage assistance than the driver can provide, such as if lawful parking is not close enough to your accommodation
  • If you are traveling with extra luggage, check with your hotel/apartment building if it has flights of stairs without elevators as this may be difficult with extra luggage.


Cruising with Children in Italy
Traveling with Children in Italy

In Italy children 8 years and younger must be secured in age-appropriate safety seats.  Children cannot be seated in other passengers’ laps inside moving vehicles.  

If you are traveling with young children, please be sure to mention this important information when booking a transfer and request an age-appropriate Child Safety Car Seat (including the Age and Weight of the child)  if you will not be traveling with one.


10 Common Mistakes that Ruin your Summer Trip to Italy


Gratuity is not mandatory in Italy, it is always at the client’s discretion.

However, if you are pleased with the service received from your driver, 10% gratuity (or what you feel is fair)  is customary in Italy.



 There are Private Civitavecchia Port Transfers and Shuttle Port Transfers. 

Private Civitavecchia transfers afford you more flexibility with scheduling your transfers (especially for transfers from the Airport to Civitavecchia if your flight or luggage are delayed), full control of your pick-up time, and predictability of travel time to your final destination.  

Private Transfers offer also the special benefit of privacy inside your vehicle and safety when not sharing your small space with unknown strangers.
