#LOVECIVITAVECCHIA - FORT MICHELANGELO
The Fort Michelangelo other than being one of the symbols of Civitavecchia, is one of the most important architectonical structures along the Lazio coastline.
Placed within the historic port, it is an absolute must for both visitors just landed in the Port and anyone willing to go for a nice walk around one of the most interesting historical and cultural areas.
#LOVECIVITAVECCHIA - TAURINE BATHS (TERME TAURINE)
The Taurine Baths, also known as Baths of Trajan, after the Roman emperor who founded the city, are one of the most important termal complexes of Roman Age through the whole south Etrurian area.
Place of great social gathering, in the past these thermal baths were frequented by both eminent personalities and common people, like Roman legionaries just disembarked from war.
From changing rooms (apodyterium) to bedrooms (cubicola), from cold baths (frigidarium) to end a Turkish bath (tepidarium), the Taurine Baths were provided with all comforts!
Visiting the ruins of this big archeological park will take you back in time to the Roman Empire Age.
#LOVECIVITAVECCHIA - OLD TOWN
Civitavecchia’s old town, with its churches, the old squares and hidden treasures is beyond doubt one of the most sought-after places in the city.
Wandering around its narrow streets, still paved with the typical Roman sampietrini, you’l bump into importanti architectonical buildings such as the Cathedral of Civitavecchia, the Church of the Star or the Church of the Prayer and Death, the oldest church in the city.
From Piazza Saffi, plunged into a characteristic Medieval background, cross the suggestive passage of the Archetto to get to Piazza Leandra, with its wonderful paintings by Raphael. Besides, you can also go to Piazza Regina Margherita, seat of the historic fish market, pulsating heart of the city.
#LOVECIVITAVECCHIA - PIRGO
Built in the second half of the 19th century, the Pirgo is named after the old people of Pyrgi, who used to be settled along the Lazio coastline before the Romans.
The original bathing complex was established on a small island, and it was formed by a platform with jetties, roundabouts and Swiss chalet style buildings. In the course of few years, it became a center frequented by the most famous and important bourgeoisie of the time.
Damaged by wars and rough seas, after many years of decay and disuse, the Pirgo was rebuilt in 1997 in a new modern structure that we have nowadays: a terrace where you can have an splendid view of the whole seafront of Civitavecchia.
#LOVECIVITAVECCHIA - HISTORIC PORT
The great dream of emperor Trajan of building a new great port of Rome, work that entrusted in 106 B.C. to architect Apollodorus of Damascus, is more alive than ever.
The Port of Civitavecchia, with its wonderful historic monuments is a unicum at an international level!
Around mid 15th century, the city and the port became a heritage owned by the Papal State and the different Popes in charge initiated a prosperous era when great artists like Leonardo Da Vinci, Bramante, Bernini, Antonio Da Sangallo, Vanvitelli and others worked building and fortifying the port.
Fort Michelangelo, the Vanvitelli Fountain on the city walls of Urban VII, the monumental Porta Livorno, the Ancient Rock, the Darsena Romana and St. Peter’s Fort in the Molo del Lazzaretto are proof of a glorious past and are an extraordinary visiting card for a future yet to come.
