Located a convenient 80 kilometers northwest of modern Rome across the Mignone River, the port city of Civitaveccia lies on the Tyrrhenian Sea on the western coast of Italy. Settlement here can be traced all the way back to the Etruscan empire, but the Roman Emperor Trajan built the first harbor in the early 2nd century. Today, it has become a popular tourist destination for both land-roving and seafaring travelers alike, thanks to its rich history and the warm, hot Mediterranean climate.

 

The port at Civitaveccia is busy, as it hosts all of the cruise ships for travelers visiting Rome. The sprawling 16th century Forte Michelangelo is visible from the harbor and was commissioned from Bramante by Pope Julius II to defend the port of Rome. Also of note, the Terme Taurine baths are located just north of the city and have been popular among locals and visitors alike ever since Roman times.
