The Port of Civitavecchia, founded by Emperor Trajan, as the port of Rome, for many centuries has represented the cornerstone of exchange and contact among the people of ancient "Mare Nostrum".
Civitavecchia still enjoys this privileged position today, at the centre of a modern and efficient railway, road and airport network that links the capital and central Italy to the rest of the world.
Thanks to the new Port Regulating Plan, the Port of Civitavecchia has increased its commercial traffic reaching a total of two million tons of bulk goods. It is also strategic for the access to important Italian tourist destinations and important Mediterranean cruise routes. The passenger flow increase has been favoured by a long-standing policy that also witnessed the foundation, in 1991, of the Coordination of the Middle Tyrrhenian Sea that aims at increasing Short Sea Shipping between Civitavecchia and the Sardinian ports (Olbia-Golfo Aranci, Cagliari and Porto Torres).
Civitavecchia has also become leader of cruise traffic. Development works of the wharfs and passenger welcoming structures have granted the possibility of recording a significant increase in cruise liners, going from 50 ships in 1996 to 500 in 2003. Civitavecchia aims at increasing the tourist flow with the target of becoming the most important cruise port in the Mediterranean.
