Try Civitavecchia itself.Get the shuttle to town and where you are dropped, bear around to the right and you will come to the sea front.As you walk along the prom the town lays on the left or after about 1/2 a mile you will see th sign directing you to the railway station, suggest you draw train time tables with destinations off of the net. Excursions to the Lazio region, are sometimes available and can be very enjoyable.

Unfortunately with the port of Civitavecchia being of great strategic interest it was virtually flattened during WWII. There are one or two things of interest there , a Madonna which cries tears of blood and is revered and a fort finished by Michelangelo. Along the adjacent coast are some enjoyable beaches and an interesting spa resort where the hot springs, the Taurine Baths, have been used since the days of ancient Rome. If you are prepared to explore by hiring a car the area of Lazio is relaxing and romantic and a 80 mile round trip to Lake Bracciano and the town with its 13th. C. castle or a drive around the lake with a background of mountains is well worth while. Hope that helps…..Neil .

Assuming your port of call is Civitavecchia: There is a reasonably good market in the port of Civitavecchia. Cross the road and head straight up inland, the market is off on the left. Alternatively get the train and go to the next stop along approx 5 minutes (heading towards rome) to the seaside port of Santa Marinella. Nice beach and a small selection of shops. OR get a taxi and go to one of the lakes such as lake Bracianno.
