The best way to reach Rome is to use the train. Civitavecchia station is a shortish walk from the dock gates and the trains in Italy are good and cheap. Taxi's are very expensive and the buses inconsistent and slow. .... Nei.

The train fare to Rome last year was 9 euro return, which includes the use of the metro and buses in Rome. There is a station near to St Peters or you can get off at the Terminii. For train times see www.trenitalia.com. The station is about a 10-15min walk from the port shuttlebus drop off point in Civitavecchia, walking with the sea on your righ.

Some go with friends, but want to have the privacy of their own cabin to sleep in.Cruise holidays are a perfect option for people who travel alone. You can have plenty of ‘me-time’, but you ...

My Visit to see the MS Emily Bronte

I was luck enough to be invited to see the new MS Emily Bronte. This was only a day trip but worth it all the same.

I can see why River Cruises are very popular. Compared to an ocean Liner that are huge in size, River cruises give you a more intimate feel and are able to get into the heart of Cities. Some with excurs...
